Here's my poor, starved Zeus. So many people have commented on how "skinny" he is, or how he needs "fattening up". I don't even keep count anymore. I even had one person tell me that his muscles were clearly defined---therefore, he definitely doesn't have enough body fat. And I've also had a bunch of people say that he must be part greyhound, because only greyhounds are that thin.

Here's my skinny dog:

He may not look so lean in these because he has a lot of fur. I can feel his ribs, his spine and his hip bones. I thought he looked good. *shrug*

I hear it a lot, but last week, my agility instructor said he seemed skinny! That tells me maybe I should look into it.

This pic was last winter, but Missy seems the same. She seems to self regulate her intake. I measure out her food, and she gets extra but she doesn't always eat it all. When she gets RMBs in addition to her regular meals sometimes she'll eat it, and sometimes she'll bury it for later.

People tell me she's so skinny all the time. Even my parents

Rose is a trim little dog, even though she's gained quite a bit since we got her.

I think she's at a great weight right now. Of course she was shaved in that picture.

Beau is actually in the best shape imo.

He's all muscle if you get your hands on him.

We never get any comments since all the dogs have long hair.

Most people don't know what their own healthy weight should be - let alone all the breeds & mixes. As responsible owners you are displaying your commitment to keep your dogs at a proper weight - the pics posted confirm this. No one is doing their pets any favors by having them carry around excess pounds and straining their joints, hearts and frames.
