    Hi all,
    Went the vet for a weigh in and he's 49lbs and 11 months old now. He's gained 1.5lbs in the last 6 weeks. He's eating 2 cups twice a day of Fromm grain free salmon tunalini. They recommend on the bag 2-4 time the listed amount for puppies should i up it is he still a pup at 11 months. What do you guys think?

    Thanks,
    Bongo & Frank.
    P.s these pics are from today.

    I would say he is getting enough food, once he gets a year old he will start to fill out. He looks great.

    He is at the same weight my boy was at 11 months. He looks great! My guy also gets 2 cups of Fromms a day. Vet told me to cut back a bit.

    Wow he is getting so grown up I think he looks great and is getting enough! He will start to fill out in the next couple months! Brutus is 18 mnths now and still getting wider

    You can add some yogurt to his food also!

    He looks to me like he is saying "get me out of this dang shirt". I think it is just the shirt making him look slim.

    Mack is only 42 pounds and he is full grown. However the last time we had him weighed he was on really cheap scrappy food, and I think since then he may have developed more muscle. He looks more defined in his front than he did before. But maybe it is just me. Point is, as long as he is healthy the actual number of pounds may vary, likely depending on genetics.

    Oh and I love his sweater, is it actually a dog sweater or a human one?

    -image-jpg-image-jpg-image-jpg-image-jpgI think he looks great, my 2 guys are 10 months old, and my female weighs, 34 lbs, and my male weighs 36 lbs. They eat 1 1/2 cups of Fromms Beef twice a day, and my vet says she likes the way they look, they are solid, but lean, with a nice defined waist, you can feel their ribs, but can't see them, and she says she likes the way I keep them.
