Question Weight?

Like Laur's Thread a while back about Summer weight I have a few questions about Teagans weight.

I personally am not super worried about it as she is on the smaller size and she is so freaking active and always on the go, but my parents keep on commenting on her weight and how they think she is too underweight. So their worrying about it is making me worry about it.

She is on the smaller size for a westie at about 13-14 pounds. And you can very easily feel her ribs.

Here is a wet picture of her to hopefully help you guys out.

Kinda hard to tell from this pic, but she looks ok to me.

Are her hip bones protruding? Like, can you see them sticking out?

Feel her. A dog's ribs should feel like the back of your hand. If she is bumpier than that.. then you could have a problem. If not she is likely healthy .
