Default I have a question

I know Chihuahuas are naturally small and littleish lol but I just wonder if Kizzie is too skinny? Obviously Shayley and Kizzie are two different types because Kizzie has been just petite every since we brought her home and Shayley has always been on the chunky side since we've brought her home.

They were recently at the vet and I asked and she thinks she's normal for a Chihuahua but I think just because I'm her mom and I'm not use to having a petite Chihuahua I amjust a little concerned. Kizzie eats perfectly, she loves her treats and even gets people food from time to time (Esp when family is over lol she begs like crazy) So she's not every NOT eating. If that was the case I'd be really worried...even though I still am worried.

Kizzie was 8lbs last time she was at the vets but she just seems so itty for 8lbs to me....i don't know why but again I've had my first CHihuahua (Shayley) since I was 16 and now Kizzie in 2009 so maybe I'm just not use to it? What do you all think? Any input from you Chihuahua long timers would help! Thanks!





Trying to find some older pics of her too of her whole body....lol not easy when all the ones I have loaded already mostly have clothing on! LOL dang it!

I think she looks a good healthy weight.
Cant see ribs.
She is just the slender type with longer legs like my Darla.
I worried about Darla too, cause Daisy has the shorter legs and seems more cobby.
Then of course i worried about Daisy being overweight in comparison. lol
Anyway, she is a real black beauty, and so shiney!!

She looks perfect to me! You don't have nothing to worry about unless she stops eating for a few days. My chi's body physique looks just like Kizzies & she's close to 7 lbs. With these little guys being so small, it's better they keep a slender shape than be slightly heavy because of their little skinny legs & the chance of LP.

Thank you Terri! lol I know I do worry a lot when it comes to their health ( I know we all do that!)

That's exactly how it is with Shayley & Kizzie...Shayley has the short legs and Kizzie has the longer legs. I think I just compare Kizz to Shay and of course I know I shouldn't because Shayley has always been chunky but never over weight... She was the chunkiest out of her siblings (The reason I chose her too hehe) I never had to worry about Shayleys weight either way (rather too skinnyor too chunky)

Thank you though, very much about the rock photo! I have it framed in a 5x7 but I want to get a nice big one after we move into our new house down the road lol.

Thank you woodard! The vet said the same thing.....about the slenderness rather than being over weight because of LP.......

Everyone will have their own opinion, I'm sure. Some might say she is perfect, some might say she needs to loose a few ounces. She has about the same "tuck" in her waste as Chance, and some said he was "pudgy." He is “fuller” than my girls, so I assume/assumed he needs to lose weight. He isn't "leggy" or "lengthy" though. My Vet doesn't seem bothered by it at all. He said that I can take 1/2 lb. off of him if it will make me feel better. Anyway, my opinion is that she doesn't look overweight, or underweight. And she is quite the beauty!
