    @Pati Robins I think Lily looks great. Love her colour what does she weigh?

    @ZeusCsmommy I was going to ask same as Pati..how old is he? 66 lbs seems like a good weight for a male. What a sweet face

    @Pati Robins. @zesucsmommy. I agree with Lari

    -image-jpgOops you didn't do it again. I totally agree with everyone's comments, lily looks good to me, she doesn't look to fat. My vet said the same thing to me, my two guys weigh 45 lbs each at almost 19 months old, and she said they should be 40 lbs. I don't think mine look to fat, but she says it's better for them to be on the lighter side for their joints. I fed our guys 1 cup of Fromms Beef three times a day until they were 7 months old, and then eliminated the afternoon feeding, and then fed them 1 cup of kibble twice a day. I think that if they are active and look good with a well defined waist, then you don't need to put them on a diet.

    I think she looks GREAT!!! If she's fat then Winston is OBESE... he is 55 lbs and just turned 9 mos old. I'm going to cut down on his food a tad, but honestly while they are pups they are going to go thru the fat/thin stage while they are growing. I haven't been able to exercise as much because of the heat, but as it cools down we will be back to our walks. Lilly is a beautiful baby, so don't worry!!!

    Wow he has a lot of muscle tone he must be incredibly active! I think he looks good, but he's probably a lot like my Pookie, very active and muscular. I know I try to give Pookie a little extra to try to get some meat on his bones but I also know that he is a good weight for his size and activity. Eventually as he gets older and more lazy it will start to stick more. I also noticed that if I overfeed him to try to get him to gain weight, his anal glads fill up whereas if I give him the proper amount to keep him where he is, they don't. So I decided I will just be patient and let him gain weight when it's time. He will be healthier that way.

    Time to reduce her food! ;-(
    She looks fabulous! She is young still and carrying some baby fat, I think she's perfect.

    he does have tons of energy. We haven't really walked him all summer since it gets really hot if we do it like at 7-8 am and definitely for long it will start warming up.. My husband is in love with the massive bullies.

    I agree with everyone else, I honestly don't think she looks porky. She still has a waist and looks just fine to me.
