Default What is WITH People Lately?????

I've noticed sooooo many threads about rude strangers approaching Chazzer about their dogs' weight. I know canine (and human) obesity is reaching horrible heights, but is there something in the water?

I just had someone tell me that Ronin looked emaciated. He was really rude about it too, like how dare I have a dog that doesn't have a badonkadonk butt and a spare tire???

So let's see 'em, Chazzers... lost your pics of your "skinny", "emaciated", "unhealthily thin" dogs!

Here's mine...


Oh wait - you mean not all Corgis look like Twinkies?


Heck, even middle aged old ladies can look pretty good...

I know you think she looks skinny, but from the pictures, her body condition looks ideal IMO!

Maybe it's just that in the past we have always owned dogs that had more "fat" to them... but I just cant get over it.

Hopefully, tomorrow, Sizzle can easy my mind a bit

I can barely feel BDs ribs. If you look close and I get good pics you can see Verdes ribs.

Joey is actually getting a little chubby, but he was at an awesome weight in September when I took him to the vet. I had a lot of people asking me if he was still so skinny from his surgery earlier in the summer. I just told them that the vet said he was at a perfect weight. They didn't really know what to say to that.





This reminded me of a funny story. This summer I was back in my hometown living with my parents. My mom does daycare and all the little kids LOVE Joey. Well, one little boy was petting Joey and he said "Boy Joey, you have a REALLY HUGE tummy!", but he was rubbing Joey's ribcage. I don't think a diet is going to help with that, lol!

Even with all of her fur, people are always telling me Dance is too skinny:

^ I don't think she looks at all thin, especially with her thick coat. You can easily feel her ribs and she visibly has a waist. The picture actually makes her looks a little over-weight I think, but she isn't.

I know you keep saying that, and it's hard to tell from pictures, but I think she looks great for her age and build.
