    They're gorgeous!! Wilson's a lean 60 and he has a waistline just like them. I think they're perfect. They have a beautiful stance and good looking heads, ears and paws on them.

    WOW all the bullies on here are beautiful BUT this thread is freaking me OUT!!! I just took Winston in for his eye recheck & he gained 2 more pounds... he's at 58 pounds and he's only 10 months old!!! He only gets 1 1/4cup of Fromms twice a day, and maybe 2 treats. I can incorporate more veggies & fruits in but good grief his kibble intake is going to be low. Is this healthy?!!

    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.

    She doesn't like veggies at all n I think that's y she doesn't like the Vegas stew :/ she lovessssssss fruit tho I mean if I eat an apple she slaps me until I give her a piece butttttt idt fruit is all that great for dogs either I mixed her food tonight with no sugar added applesauce n she just about chewed the bowl to make sure she got it all but I know fruit is naturally high in sugars even no sugar added has a lot of sugar in it!! She loves cantaloupe to but lol I just don't know about the fruit I don't want to turn her into a diabetic dog just so she will lose weight!!! I did cut her food back for a few days she got 1/2 cup the last 2 mornings n 3/4 cup the last 2 nights n the applesauce tonight n this morning I woke up to her puking on the bed I'm stumped!! I don't want her to be overweight n unhealthy but I also don't want to underfed her n make her unhealthy

    So she only gets 1.5 c per day? That should be sufficient for weight management, it may not help her lose but that should not make her gain either....

    What is the food she is currently on? Maybe it has fat content.... yes fruits are good for them, but not if they are dieting, the sugar turns into extra calories.

    Last thought, you may want to have her thyroid tested. She is not eating much food, and if she is still gaining when you are watching so carefully, it makes me suspicious.

    Yup 1 1/2 cups a day she eats fromms beef frittata!! I was thinking hypothyroidism too bcuz she's wicked active n plays pretty much all day even when we aren't in the house she plays with her toys non stop doesn't eat much drinks a lot of water but she has been at 60 lbs for almost a year now n has only fluctuated a few oz up n down!!! I just had her at the vets Tuesday for her eye n fleas n she weighed 60.2 lbs n 3 months ago she weighed 60.1 lbs n 3 months b4 that she weighed 60.4 lbs!!! She just doesn't act like she has an under active thyroid, with humans they'd be sluggish hardly eat n gain weight n hyperthyroidism would be the opposite skinny eat all the time n just keep losing weight
