ive just weighted tillie but im not sure if shes overweight or not shes 7lbs! :O can i tell some way or something :S im so confused lol x
ive felt and i can feel her ribs ect. but she does feel ever so slightly squidgy but only REALLY slightly and no she dosent look fat i just think im worrying lol xDoes she feel fat? Can you feel her ribs? She should feel lean and sleek under her fur, not squidgy. Weight is only a guide, you can tell by looking if she is too fat or not.
the last time i checked (About a week ago) she was 7.6 inches x7lbs isn't massive, many pure Chi's weigh this much. How tall is Tillie?
yeah i just always hear 2 to 6lb lol and that just get stuck in ya head xMy chi is about 7 lbs & has a nice hour glass figure.
Thats just the KC weights. I thought Tillie is a mix anyway? You might expect her to be a bit bigger too because she has slightly bigger breeds mixed in.yeah i just always hear 2 to 6lb lol and that just get stuck in ya head x
Well that is only if they are bred to standard and even then its not a hard and fast rule. Chis come in all shapes and sizes...even though TECHNICALLY they 'shouldn't'. Even in my show dogs, there is a great variation in size, weight, height, length, etc. I'm working to make them more consistent, but yeah...my pets especially are all over the board.yeah i just always hear 2 to 6lb lol and that just get stuck in ya head x
yeah i dont have to press that much (Like a v dinky bit) so hopefully shes ok?! lol xIf you can feel her ribs without putting pressure, she's not over weight. But you should not be able to feel a layer of fat over her ribs. My chi is 6 pounds and she's so thin. She is lean and her thigh muscles are big. But she's a smooth coat so its easy to tell. She's built like an italian greayhound. And Sophia is great not, she was fat when I got her.
