    I have a 5 year old white female named Sugar who weighs 50lbs. She eats 1 cup of dog food a day in the evening. It is the Royal Canin hypoallergenic. She is allergic to everything. LOL She is very healthy. Her problem is she doesn't move off the sectional all day while I work. Pork is beautiful and healthy looking.

    Porky is one of my favorite girl bullies here. I adore her face and always love seeing you post pics.
    But, she does look a bit chunky in the pic. No less beautiful, just a little chunky.

    I know I just don't know what to do if I cut her food anymore she gets lethargic n just lays around n pukes a lot I'm actually wondering if she has an under active thyroid anyone know if that's common in bullies??? She's soooooo active she naps while I shower n get ready for work but as soon as I'm done she's begging to go back out n play so I take her n she runs!!!! A lot lol we actually named one of her games her crazy puppy laps she will do laps around our well house (about 10) as fast as she can then unwind herself by going in the opposite direction I gotta get vids of that

    I hear ya on the laps, Blue does the same. We call it loony tunes time. It's like a cartoon. He always winds up running into something because he can't stop in time.

    Anyway, what you can do is substitute something like half a cup of food per day with Green beans. Just mix it in. Did you see the link I posted on page 1 of this thread? http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...as-stew-anyone @Libra926 had a thread on it. I've used it and Blue loves it. You can add less or more of a specific ingredient if Porky doesn't like something.

    That's crazy! Loki is currently at about 63lbs and our vet said that he looks perfect! It all depends on the bully I think.

    Default Porkys not fat :)

    Cut back her food by just a little, like 1/4 c a day and then give her a supplement instead. That should help boost her energy. Does she like rice cakes? It will take longer for her drop the weight but even 1/4 c will eventually make an impact.

    Also, you can try canned green beans instead if fresh frozen. Just get unsalted kind. Sometimes they will like those if they don't like the fresh ones.

    You will be amazed at the difference even 1lb makes.

    This really depends on the vet. When Blue had his surgery, the vet said get him down 10-12lbs pronto. My regular vet doesn't think Blue's really over weight. She just said to watch him carefully and if I decide to put him on a diet, 3-4lbs is enough. Well he's down about 3lbs now and I want him down another 3.
    They all have differing opinions.

    So true about even 1lb. You can instantly see a difference with these guys.
