Default Old pic of Opie and a new pic - Wow...

I was looking back at old FOHA pics in my photobucket and found this.

Opie when he first came to FOHA:

And this is Opie now:

He HAS lost quite a bit of weight. Although if you look at his face he looks much more relaxed in the second pic.

He has lost a lot of weight. He's also matured a great deal, and he DOES look far more relaxed in the "now" photo. In that first one he looks massively stressed.

Poor Opie, his ribs are showing now...

IMO he looks better in the second picture... yes he's a tad underweight, but he looks in better shape in terms of musculature and he looks FAR more relaxed.

I'm shocked he hasn't been scooped up yet, with all the people just here on Chaz that love him!

I wouldn't even call that underweight. His coat looks good his muscle tone too. If he showed up here for agility lessons I would say he looks perfect going by that pic.

Cartman is a tad bit ribby, but hes free fed and eats when he wants.

I think he does look like he has lost quite a bit of weight, but he doesn't look emaciated.

This. I also think he's put on maybe an inch of height.

He's such a handsome big guy. He looks much, much more relaxed in the second photo.

That boy breaks my heart. I want nothing more then to see him go to a good home. I can't believe he's been there that long!

I find he looks a little less hopeful in the second picture, honestly. The first, it's like he's looking for his people to come back, the second it's more like "They're not coming back" but he does look more relaxed... But he has been there for a while, hasn't he?
