Globe photos of the week, Jan. 27, 2012

West Newton, MA 1/23/12 Lindsay Massengale's (cq) 8-year-old yellow Lab "Kona" was always active, usually walking from two to three times a day. But without her realizing it, he had swelled to 103 pounds. Lamenting that she had become a bad parent, with help, she changed his diet and he shrunk down to 80 pounds. They take a short 40-minute walk and then play in their front yard, on Monday, January 23, 2012. (Pat Greenhouse/Globe Staff); Reporter: Beth Teitell; Section: Lifestyle; Slug: fat pets
