Tico is just starting to thin out from his rolly-polly puppy look, and I noticed today that his sternum sticks out right where his harness crosses it (at it's highest point). I don't know if I've just never noticed this before, or if since he's maturing his bones are moving about - but thought I would check with you all if this is normal. for frame of reference - if chihuahuas had adams apples like men, it would be that much of a distance away from the rest of his chest as a chi sized adams apple (does that make any sense?).

sternum

I think this is normal? If not then Yoshi is in trouble? He has always been a skinny boy and never had a puppy belly but his little chest bone sticks way out. My vet has never mentioned this to be a problem nor the fact that he is skinny. He is more like petite featured. He eats well.
