What a great idea for a thread! If I had a dollar for every "why is he/she so thin?" comment... I feel like I need a sign: My dog is not thin, this is what a healthy weight looks like!! Sorry... /rant LOL!

Anyway. Will try to get shots of the of the other two later today, but here are Bates and Breez on their walk this morning.

Bates:
Age: 3 years (estimated age)
Gender/Altered Status: N Male
Current weight: 80 pounds
Current height at the shoulders: 26"
Amount you feed per day: 4 to 4.5 cups per day split in to two meals (this is a LOT of kibble, so I add fatty ground meat a few times a week to keep from having to feed so much.
What you feed: TOTW rotate between all 4 varieties.
How active your dog is: Very! 3 to 5 mile leash walk at a brisk trot every morning, swimming, and lots of land to zoomie on
Don't mind the buzz cut on his side - what's left of the mess he made 2 weeks ago impaling himself on a tree brach while running mach 5 through the woods


Breez:
Age: 2.5 years
Gender/Altered Status: S Female
Current weight: 130 pounds
Current height at the shoulders: 33"
Amount you feed per day: 5 to 5.5 cups per day split in to two meals depending on activity that day.
What you feed: TOTW rotate between all 4 varieties.
How active your dog is: Very active like Bates.


On both dogs you can see the last rib or two depending on the light and how they're moving. If they lay on a hard surface, you can see even more.

Same here... I'd be rich if I got a dollar for every comment like that! lol According to many people, I need to add at least 10 pounds onto her

Sawyer
Age: 7? years old
Gender/Altered Status: male neutered
Current weight: 55lbs
Current height at the shoulders: 21 inches
Amount you feed per day: varies
What you feed: prey model raw and "last bites" from my plate
How active your dog is: Moderate; will lay around all day if needed, but will hike/run/swim like a boss when given the chance

It's hard to get a good picture of him anymore as his coat has thickened considerably in the last couple of years. He's standing rather bunched up, but you can see part of his tuck up.

You can see a bit better muscle definition here:

When he's totally dry and standing in a side wind, he looks huuuuge.

And my little JRT brat...no height or weight measurements on him though.

I get comments all the time from the "general public" who think that my dogs are too skinny. Nope, they are very fit dogs.
