    Default Chubby or not too chubby?

    Stella is 83 lbs and the Vet thinks she is too fat!!! She has always been a big girl and has weighed more then Silva. She was the biggest girl in her litter of 10. I have changed her eating habits recently and made a walk/run a must everyday! no more people food! Stella weighs 84 lbs and Silva weighs 59lbs. What do you think?

    Bum shot: Notice the height difference

    She looks OK to me. Wilson was the largest puppy in a litter of nine and he is tall for a bulldog and weighs in at 75 lbs. Vet says as long as he has a tapered waist he's good. He pretty much stays within two pounds up or down of that weight.

    You asked....... 83 is too heavy! I think if you could get her down to 70 it would be much more healthy for her. Did her vet give her a target or just say she was too fat? The Vegas Diet that @Libra926 came up with has helped a few bullies loose weight and it seems easy to make. Maybe talk to Cheryl about it.

    I'll just say it, she's a bit, ahhhh, chubby. But hey so am I right now. No seriously I saw two other bullies at my vet's office not long ago and omg they were fat! Not chubby, fat! They looked like mini hippos.
