What about using a (low sodium) broth -and adding a little to the kibble? I do understand your frustration (and sometimes embarrasment) with a skinny dog. When we brought Bosco home he weighed less than Kona...58lbs. He is a good 4 inches taller than her. I stopped at a pet store on the way home with him and people stared at us, and I could tell they thought I was a horrible person for having a dog in his shape *and* bring him out in public Poor guy, he's so vocal, so he was whining and carrying on and talking to me the whole time, drawing more attention to us , plus it was the day after he was neutered, so he was a little dazed and sore. Ugh. I feed both of my two a raw diet, and 18 months later, he's gained almost 30lbs is shiny, healthy and happy (still noisey tho), but he is still a thin dog.
