    @EBDR35 Maggie has just turned 4 and she is only about 34lb. I wouldn't worry too much about weight ... it is all so individual. Just keep an eye on her physique ... make sure from a top view she has an easily discernable waistline, and that you can't feel her ribs without adding a little bit of pressure.

    To me three cups a day does sound a lot although I also think what you were originally feeding was too little. What kind of food is she being fed ... that can make a difference to the amount you feed.


    Hi, she was originally on Nature's Variety Instinct Salmon Meal (1.5 to 2 Cups a day very tiny Kibbles), she was doing fine but i got worried she wasn't growing because i was not exactly feeding her Puppy food, i know its great food and five Stars, but i had a feeling its not for puppies, so just about 2 weeks ago i just started transitioning her into eating Wellness Super5Mix just for Puppies.. THe kibbles are about twice as big as the Nature's VAriety one so im feeding her two times a Day about 1 1/4 cups each serving.. so thats about 2 and a half cups a day or so.. I was going by the feeding guide from Nature's Variety at first, but now that im on Wellness and the kibbles are bigger im not 100% sure how much i should be feeding her now... any advice would be appreciated.

    @savemejeebus - what a perfect illustration of how EBs grow into themselves over time. I'd have never put those two pics together as the same dog. Goes to show ya!

    @EBDR35 - Bo was lanky as a pup but he's also filling out like Stig did.

    They're ALL perfect just exactly like they are. :-)

    I think they are just all different. Wally was by far the biggest dog in his litter (he looked like he was a month older than his brothers) but he grew very slowly and all the other dogs surpassed him in weight. Now at 1 year he is fairly tall and weighs 52lbs but his head hasn't really filled out yet. He looks pretty lanky for a Bulldog. This is his most recent picture. He's probably about 10.5 months in it. You can see that his head is not as big as other Bulldogs his age, but is getting bigger every day.
    Lets be honest though, I really wrote all this as an excuse to post my new favorite picture of Wally.

    If that's the case, then you should be honest more often!

    Wally is wonderful! You need to share more often! Jakes story is just like Wally's! He was the 2nd biggest..although we were after a smaller sized bully...now we got just what we wanted! He weighs 46 lbs..his smaller brothers with 55 and up! I bet Wally's head will be perfect! He's not done yet!! From what I read..the head and chest fill out last! Thanks for the picture! Wally!
