    Goob gets 2 cups a day. Once at ten in the morning and once at ten at night. I wouldn't call him overweight but he is a BIG boy. -20131229_135823-jpg-20140603_182216-jpg

    Ruckus is 68 pounds and gets 2.5 cups per day. I give it to him in the morning and he rations it for himself -- it normally lasts until early evening. I do give him some plain greek yogurt as a treat each night, as well as a few treats throughout the day for being good (like when he lets me clean his wrinkles and tail withouot a fuss -- once I'm done he runs directly over to where I keep the treats) and he is known to get what we refer to as the "puppy burger" (basically just unseasoned beef we cook so he doesn't feel left out) whenever we grill.

    Just to attest to bulldogs eating a whole bag if they are allowed to. My "little" guy had to have his stomach pumped after he ate so much that his body went into shock when he got into a bag of dog food at the doggy day care we send him to. He looked like a cow when he got home.

    Bongo eats 1 3/4 cups twice a day and that keeps him at 65 pounds he's 2.5 yrs. Lately he's been leaving about 3/4 of it so were thinking of cutting him down to 1 per day.
    Thanks,
    Frank & Bongo
