Default Sonny Big boned? and a few fun

I keep wondering if my muscle man is fat or just solid. I can not feel any fat on him and he is SOLID. He is just so much bigger than his sister. What do you think? His neck has to be double BG. He looks to be in porportion but when I lift him I go Ugh is he fat?

Sonny




BG


Together


BG's take on me trying to get her to go to school (do training lol)


We throw mom's pillow on the floor then wrestle on it

He's absolutely beautiful, and so is his Sis! Just a lil cut back on his food portion and he should be A~OK. He's by far, fat.

Surprising enough you rarely see him eat anything (free feed Ziwi Peak), He is addicted to cookies (pure bites dehydrated chicken) so I have to watch that and he is beyond active. Tearing through the yard with my hounds, always running through my house.

I would like to see his waist a bit more defined. Maybe do portion controlled feeding for a while, see how much he is actually eating and then cut back a bit.

I was thinking that too. I do not see a waist like I do on BG. I might try that. They get 1 1/2-2 scoops ZP in their bowl and it last 24-36 hours. I might try portion controlled to see what he is getting. I see BG eat all the time but not really Sonny.

I see him or shall I say feel him every day so it is hard to tell. He goes to the Vet next month for his yearly so it will be interesting to see what she thinks too.

I see two real cuties!! He kind a looks like Angel, in shape. I usually pop into the vets office once a month to check his weight. My scale only does half pounds. I haven't gone for a while, he is due for a weigh-in!

I agree with Stella that his waist could be more defined.

How big is his chest? It's hard for me to tell from pictures. These guys are deceiving, but just looking at Angel, I would not guess him to have a 16" chest, 9" neck and around 10" long. He weighs 8.5 - 9 pounds, as a rule, but hasn't been weighed in a while.

They are so cute!

I agree his waist could be more defined. I think putting him on a scheduled eating and cutting back on treats should make a huge difference.

You have such beautiful babies.
