    Ok, it's hard to take pictures of Boris. He's either assaulted by Tips or trying to get close to me.

    So this is what I managed to get today - don't mind the disgusting floor, it's what it's like after 2 rainy days, going to have to clean this today...

    Wondering also... does he look too skinny? He was a bit overweight at some point but I'm worried we're starving him now or something... although he seems much happier this way.

    A-w-w-w....what a nice boy. He looks like he has a sweet disposition. Could be just a tad underweight...not much. I'd check with the vet. Lyric, my Dobe was a little overweight too several months ago...maybe almost a year ago (113LBS) but he is a pretty big Dobe. A vet told me he had love handles. a-r-r-g-g-g...can't have that. So I cut him back all these months gradually and I just took him in to see another vet the other day and he thought he was a tad underweight (84 LBS) so now I need to fatten him up just a little without going overboard..maybe to about 93-95lbs. It's weird, his ribs don't show but I thought it was good to have them a little on the lean side. (I'm especially paranoid about heart problems that Dobes are prone to) I feel awful now....no wonder he's been acting hungry more than I thought he should. Sometimes it's hard to get it regulated just right.

    We can feel his ribs ok, there's definitely a layer between them and the skin, so he doesn't seem too underweight at the touch, but he just looks a bit underweight. With his hip problems though, I think we just want him to stay this way anyway... He runs around more now, is more active in general (still can't keep up with Tips but I don't think it's possible, lol), and at least he has a good appetite. (it used to be hard to make him eat).

    So, I don't know... I guess we'll see next time we go to the vet.

    Cute pictures! And it is hard to tell weight in pictures. But I don't think he looks at all underweight. It is better a little underweight than a little overweight anyway. ;)
