Maya IS svelte - but dobes aren't supposed to be twinkies. Her weight situation is similar to Ronin's... they're at "sport weight" as some have called it. No superfluous fat anywhere on their bodies - they are either muscle or bone, nothing in between.

It's a healthy situation for a dog to be inn, IMO. I like my dogs lean and mean...

I cannot go by without complimenting on the psysical condition of the dogs in this thread so far - what a MAGNIFICENT collection of dogs, in peak condition!

Virgo's photo took my breath away, even though she is at rest you can still see how muscular and fit she is... wowza!

Macs our little muscle machine, she's bit out of shape because she was in heat recently so had 3 weeks of no walks.
Buster's still not as fit as I want him, my fault, lack of work. I can feel his ribs, but not heaps. He does seem in pretty good condition though

I think it's sad how many people do not know what a dogs weight should look like.



Bandit's body shot. No one has ever said anything about him being to thin. He gets complimented on his trimness. But his brother....


You can really see Spanky's slimness in this picture. I cannot get him to gain weight but seeing a lot of other chaz dogs he doesn't look that thin. Not to mention he has a nice shiny coat and my vet said he is in terrific shape. So eh. Screw others opinions. My dogs are healthy.

I got one of Buster, I do obsess over his weight a bit. He lost a kilo fter winter, which I expected as he got a bit more solid, but stayed his usual weight. Hmm, what do you think?





And heres Harry, he's most out of shape out of our lot but OMG is it difficult to get the weight off him.
