ooops, I forgot you asked about the water.

I usually add any fat(like what I cut off plus the drippings) from my food into midgets. Keeda... eh, depends on how I feel. she got a little bit chubby since putting her on dry... so I think I will have to cut back a bit... so no extra fat for her. lol.

My poor starving Meggie.

I've pretty much stopped raw right now for a couple of reasons (none because I wasn't satisfied with it), so she's pretty much on just Orijen.

She gets a whopping 1/3 cup per feeding, twice a day. She sometimes (probably 25% of the time) gets some of whatever is leftover or an egg tossed on top.

That keeps her at a nice weight for agility.

2 - 3 mugs depending on the day.

Sometimes more, but not often.

Buster depends a bit, last night he got a huge meal of leftovers from work, so I didn't do brekky for him thismorning, he had 1/4 chicken for dinner so we'll go breakfast again in the morning.

I just vary it around, generally I go with kibble in the morning, about 3/4 cup. Than meat at night, maybe 200-300g, he's not a big eater.

At the moment I'm stilla djusting his food a bit, he's always been around 21 - 21.5kg and latley he's been around 20.2, I don't know wheather its a good thing or if e should be slightly heavier, so i've upped his feed a bit in the last few weeks. Considering I've also started jogging with him now, I'm going to keep it this amount and see how he does.

free feed so they eat as much as they want i guess but they are an appropriate weight. Sibes are picky when they eat anyway.

Ditto.

My two are on EVO RM right now and both are doing surprisingly well on it. No gas, no chewing, minimal loose stools.

I feed once a day, I'm lazy.

Izzy gets half a cup and Frodo get's 3/4 of a cup. Right now they're not getting a whole lot of exercise during the week because of my class/work schedule so they don't need much.

I add water to both.

A cup in the morning and a cup in the evening.

depending on what we did that day (lots of excersise - such as a cottage, where he plays all day non stop) I will through in a extra half a cup to a full cup.

My dogs are free fed, and I have quite a few very lean, fit, good looking bodied dogs! (But I do have a fatty as well).
