    SHe doesn't look fat to me... or underweight. Not from those pix at least. Has she always been kind of a slow eater? That may be of some concern to me but I really don't know.

    I agree with @BruceP she does not look fat or underweight, she could probably stand to gain 1 pound, but now if I were you I would just watch to make sure she does not lose anymore. For now, she looks just fine. Now that you are aware of it you can pay attention to it. The first and second pics she looks good, the third through fifth make me think she could gain a pound.

    Now you are with her all the time and pictures can be deceiving, so if she looks more like #1 and #2 the most I think she is good.

    @BruceP No she hasn't always been a slow eater. She used to really love to eat and it has just tapered off in the last month or less that she has eaten a bite or two then came back for the rest at bedtime. I'm sure I could get her to gain the weight back but she is getting a little older and at the same time I don't want her to be too big and put stress on her joints. In theory the vet will know what she should weigh, I will ask him tomorrow for sure! Thanks for the replies everybody

    From the standing shot I would say she looks fine as far as her weight is concerned. She has a nice tapered waist and that's what you want. Not too much weight for those poor hip and knee joints to have to hold up. I hope your vet visit goes ok tomorrow and that they have some answers for you for her eyes.

    I think Bre is perfect! She is an older bully and older folks have a decrease in appetite and can still go on living for quite some time! I hope it's just life changes for her! I love her @MamaAndi I want to cuddle with bre. She reminds me of a sweet childhood teddybear!

    It's not so much how she looks today if she lost 9 pounds in one month and won't eat is a problem. Have you taken a stool sample into the vet? and what has the blood work showed? How is her white count?

    Silly me, just curious.

    Pictures are deceiving sometimes. In the very last shot, she looks great. But in the others, she looks thin to me.

    I have a 17 year old cat here (my daughter's kitty that she's grown up with) that looks downright anorexic some days and just fine on others. Age and gravity are not our friends. When pets age, they do look different! Since you are going to the vet, you'll get some sound advice from a professional, but otherwise, I'd say if she's eating, peeing, pooping within a "normal" range, don't worry. (I know that's not easy sometimes....I'm a worry wart too when it comes to my dogs...)

    @JeannieCO I guess the glaucoma (if that's what this actually is) isn't painful but they can feel a buildup of pressure from the eye...so while it might not be painful I'm sure it isn't comfortable. I think that's why she isn't as happy and carefree as she normally is...I'm sure that loosing some vision is a scary thing for a dog, makes their world a totally different place. That's why I bought her the big pillow bed that she was laying on in the pics. It's large and has a very distinct pattern, that way she can easily locate her bed even if she can't see as well.
    @acarabias thank you for your encouraging words, I am thinking we are just going through a life change too, but luckily there are things we can do to help make it easier for her
    @Sherry the 9lb loss has occured over time (January was when she weighed in at 50lbs) not in a month. I'd freak out if she lost 9lbs in a month! LOL

    Thanks again everybody for reading this thread and weighing in with your advice/experience. It's really nice to have people here who care so much for bullies that they are willing to share information!

    I was just reading more and I thought I should clarify...Glaucoma can cause pain as it progresses and if left untreated. The pain is caused from the buildup of pressure....at this point for Bre there is minimal pressure buildup (they checked last week at her initial visit) so while it is uncomfortable it shouldn't be painful right now.

    I still have lots to learn about this! I just wanted to point that out in case anyone is learning along with me!
