How do you know...
What a good target weight is for a chi? Spud and Libby were weighed yesterday. They weighed 8.8 and 7.8 pounds respectively. This surprised me because Libby's bigger than Spud. Anyway, my mother-in-law told me that they've lost about a pound and a half each in the last 6 months or so, presumably because grandma wasn't eating so wasn't feeding the pups table food but also because it was summer and they spent more time outside. How do I know what my "goal" should be in regards to how hard we should work at getting the extra weight off?
