    Remember this commercial? I was amazed that he picked up his bulldog, lol! I can't pick Canelo up by myself.

    One thing I have learned here on EBN is that bulldogs come in all shapes!

    I have worried a lot over Castor's weight over the years but for opposite reason. Tiny Castor weighs in at lbs 40 or41. This is what he looked like at 8 months or so and then last autumn at 3.5 yrs. The main difference is that his shoulders and his head have grown. I have no idea why he ended up much smaller than his parents but he is agile and can walk for hours and vets say he shouldn't gain any weight. I guess that as long as they are healthy and as long as they get as much exercise as they need, some are bigger and some or smaller!

    She doesn't look fat to me at all. She looks quite fit for an English bulldog. These dogs are built to be skinny. I find that people automatically think these dogs are fat as they compare them to other breeds. These dogs have sturdy and strong bodies. It really doesn't matter what other people. You know she is healthy.

She said, "Wow she's really fat!" I immediately became defensive.

    We buy all of our food from these people. We feed Zignature. Daphne doesn't get snacks. We've cut her food to 1 cup Morning, 1 cup evening. With evening meal she gets 2 Tablespoons homemade stew of mixed veggies. She seldom gets a treat. If she does, it's freeze dried liver.

    I don't know what to do anymore. She gets two walks a day. She is 10 months old and very healthy. She weighs 42 lbs this month. She is built like a cinder block, as square as she is long. She measures 18" from bottom of neck to top of tail. She is 29" around her girth measurement around back of front legs.

    I do my best to give Daphne the best of everything she needs. I've never had a fat dog...never. Until Daphne arrived, my dogs were self-feed high quality kibble. The vet always comment on how they maintained their weight even though self-feeds.

    What am I doing wrong? I just don't get it.

    Again, NOTHING is wrong with our Daphne. She's absolutely beautiful! Have a question though. I went to look at Zignture turkey. Not sure which one you feed her but it says, 40lb dog is 1 1/3 to 1 3/5 per day. I personally DO NOT find her fat whatsoever. She's still a pup. Some pups are more round than others. And thats for any breed! If it bothers you so much and NONE of us in here thinks she's fat but you, give her one cup of zignature and the other portion, raw or Honest kitchen or Spot Farms turkey. Give her frozen berries as a snack. Dont deprive her of snacks. Daphne is very active from what ive read in a lot of your post. Bring her to a dog park n let her run aside from her walks. She is so not fat. My GS was 115lbs build like wall. People would often say he's over weight for a GS but you know, he still could jump over 6ft walls, run like hell and healthy like a horse at 8yrs old. Some dogs are made more square than others. Dont mean they are fat or unfit. So as a member to another, stop panicking... your baby if beautiful and she's all yours to love!!! Oh and no other bullies in here have them sexy lips as my Daphne!!!!

    Daphne is such a pretty girl and not fat! I am shocked someone would make such a comment. Seems they know nothing about English bulldogs making that ignorant comment. I'm no expert, but I think she looks absolutely healthy!

    At 10 months old, who cares?! Co-owner is either just a rude person or simply let one slip(a rude comment that is). Daphne is beautiful. Weight can become an issue later in life but for now, worry not. Taking weight off will be easy whenever YOU decide it's necessary. If you want our help we will provide it.
    BTW, lizards are not fattening...

    love this pic...

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?
