    Here is some before shots, not sure if you can tell but she was fat around her rib cage- that is where all of her fat was.

    What a difference, I don't think she looks fat in her fat pictures until you see the thinner ones. She is a beautiful girl!

    Congrats on your success!!!

    I just took Winston to see the Vet yesterday and I was told he needed to loose 8-10 pounds

    I can not believe he chunked up so fast and to make matters worse he ALWAYS seems hungry!!!!! I will try your recommendations and work hard on getting that weight off. While we were there I saw this lady leaving with her English Bulldog and it scared me. He was absolutely enormous. He could barely look down to see his own feet and he was waddling and rasping hard for breath. I was about to cry for him. The Vet said that is a common issue he sees in his Bully patients, I definitely do not want Winston to end up like that poor bully.

    The pictures I posted of Phatty were from late last summer and he was chunking up then. We brought him to the vet around in the fall and were told he had a few extra pounds on him. So, we've cut his food back and he's lost some for sure. Plus, he turned 1 last month, so it seems he's losing some of that "round" puppy look and getting a little more muscular and lean.

    I need to post some updated pics.. I have a ton on my phone but my phone does not have internet - I really need to update!

    I don't know if you know this, but you can send a text to your e-mail too. And then save to your comp and then upload onto here .

    That is a good idea if you have one of the rare more able bullies who can run. Most can only take shorter walks as it is. I wouldnt recommend running any bulldog that wasnt already used to it first. My boy can run and play fetch for a bit but even then gets over tired pretty easily with heavy breathing. You are lucky to have one of the more active, sportier bullies.

    Yeah I don't think that's a good suggestion at all. Sorry. I agree that the best way to cut into fat is to moderate and watch the food that they are eating. If you're feeding crappy food then you get crappy results. If I were to tie my bulldog to the back of my bike, halfway down the street I would be dragging him. Bulldogs are non-sporting dogs.
