Dolly gets fed twice a day.. once in the morning and once at night. She is soooo skinny though! Is this common in chi's? I just saw another baby chi tonight and she was much bigger than Dolly. Maybe because it was male.

How old is she - they still should be fed 3 times a day until 6 months and twice a day after that - girls do tend to be smaller than boys :wave:

Yes she is still getting puppy food and stuff. Most of the time I feed her and she doesn't even eat it all anyways. But I will now feed her 3 times a day.

I have to free feed Pip (7 months old)-he never got into eating when we put the food down, he never eats at the same time. He is skinny too though and we want to beef him up a little. He is healthy, just skinny.

Poppy is a little piggy! I feed her 3 times a day and she just wolfs it down! At least I know exactly when she is going to need to do her business...its like clockwork now which is so good!
