Hmmm.. I'll have to check his sides to see if I can feel his ribs. Our former corgi's were very food driven and could easily gain weight if that wasn't monitored and managed. Our heeler just hangs around at 42 pounds, she wasn't interested in breakfast this morning.

Like most dogs they have different frame sizes. You should see the variations in frames amongst these puppies.

My wife's service dog, Dane II, (real, not a pretend one) ideal weight is 67 lbs. If he gets 2 lbs over we adjust his food intake. The provider of Dane pushed very hard on maintaining his ideal weight. We "parents" have to look at the big long range picture when it comes to feeding. Tough job being a parent sometimes . Rewarding though. Our close watch on Dane's weight easily flows to watching Shoba's food intake too.

LPL, yep I watch the pup's food intake. I put 12-16 cups of food out and watch it get devoured in 2-3 minutes, then they are off to the back and run and play for a few hours, then repeat in the evening. You wouldn't want to put your hand in the feed bowl once they get started.

6 month old! We are working on Shoba not being so protective. I know she comes by it honestly though. Once she is introduced to a person, and especially if given a treat, she calms down. But, pity the fool that approaches me or my wife uninvited. Even a previously met person.

Just think if you had ten with that instinct. LOL To be honest, I worry more about the pups around here given the people who live all around me.

Here is a pic of my little porker Spirit. The Male pups are the same size physically but she makes them look scrawny. I think the females just have a fuller build than the males. I still don't know how much she weighs. I don't feel like picking her up.

I was in the shop working on my latest chemical engineering project, and I had way too much help, especially when the help is stealing! What's worse is this is not all of them. LOL Oh, don't worry about the rat trap on the floor behind the dogs. It's a modified rat trap. I took the good springs off, and made some out of a clothes' hanger to replace them. Just enough tension to set the trap, but once sprung it has lost momentum before half-way thru it's arc. Just don't tell the pups, it still scares them. LOL It scares people as well. You walk in someones house, and there is a set rat trap right where you want to be. LOL It's my variation of the mouse trap in the box for nosy people!
