    Raven loves all veggies. I normally buy bags of frozen veggies for when I make stir fry and I also get the bags of frozen peas, carrots, and corn mixed. So all in all miss thing eats: baby carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, snap peas, corn, zuccini, cucumbers, lettuce. I also give her pieces of fruits with her plain yogurt and sometimes some cottage cheese. Normally I give her the veggies with her dinner time. She is not a big eater in the morning so I usually give her some yogurt or cottage cheese with some fruit then.

    I didn't know she could have all that! Ok..so I will add lots of mixed veggies in w her dinner. I'll switch the blueberries and bananas to her breakfast w her yogurt n salmon oil.

    When I make a salad with dinner I sometimes put a little salad in a side bowl for her..my husband laughs at me and how I spoil her. That is why when she eats around the kibble and I get worried he tells me it's kind of my fault...why should she want kibble, no matter how expensive, when she thinks she should have "good tasting extras"

    she isn't fat. she's 8 months old and still growing, worry when she's about 2 and if she has other issue's , like getting up , that's a problem , or if she's more round then shaped. don't stress it yet. enjoy

    That seems to be the insight I'm getting from everyone here. I understand precautionary measures n all, but I also want to feed her enough at 8 months old!

    Good Lord... Winston is 8 mos old today & I know he weighs at least 40 pounds!!! He's huge... I don't think Brie looks fat at all. I'm not worrying about Winston yet, he's still a wee babe... Lol

    PICS agree, she doesn't look fat and since she is still growing I would not cut back on her food just yet, wait until she gets a little closer to a year old and then see how she is, and then if you need to cut back a little it would just be by a 1/4 cup a day.

    Amy's vet suggested we cut her back a bit too when she was in last week for her spay. She's 5 months and 32 lbs. I thought she looked plenty trim, but he said "inside" there is already plenty of "puppy" fat.

    And because of her hips it would be better if she is a little underweight. I voiced my concern that if we put her on a "diet" while she's still developing that we could impede bone growth and what she needs to hopefully compensate for the hip issues naturally. He told us to keep her on puppy food until she's 10 or 11 months old (fromm pink bag is what she gets), but to just cut back on the amount. She was getting 1 cup 3 X per day. We've cut her back to 2/3 cup 3X a day plus a little bit that at most equals half a cup that we use as treats. And he sent us home with vitamins to supplement less food. So she still gets the vitamins and nutrients a growing puppy needs without the extra calories and fat.

    She looks much thinner than those pics of Brie, but I think partly that is because she's so sleek black, so like most of us look thinner in black so does she.

    Just keep in mind....the trimmer you can keep them the better for their health. Those pictures for 8 months look fine to me...but as she gets older you will want to see a more defined waist.

    The trimmer you can keep her now as a puppy...the better. It's harder to get the weight off them when they are older.
