Default Why can't people mind their own business?!!

I was at the dog park, and a woman (who by the way had a very overweight lab) says "Your dog is so thin!" I said "excuse me?" and she said "Yeah, she's really skinny!" I told her I didn't agree, and that our vet also thinks her weight it perfect for her breed mix and age. She's 52 pounds- these are recent pictures. Does anyone think she's skinny?




one more

I told my husband about it, and he said she probably thought Zoe was a full lab. She's only part lab, and part border collie. So I guess if she were a lab she'd be on the thin side. Still- it's rude to make comments like that!

Also- we don't measure her food. She self-regulates. I just keep her bowl full and she eats as much as she wants. She's never been a "gobbler".

She looks great! Not too thin at all.
