Does Orson need to be fed more food?? I cut his food intake by almost half in Aug cause he was getting chubby but now I am afraid he has gotten too lean. He's not boney to the touch and he's got good muscle,
so am i being paranoid??
His head looks too big for his body :? :lol:

he looks ok from the pics, but it is hard to tell.i see no back bone or hip bones. i can't notice any ribs in that pic of him on the stair so i don't consider him "to thin"

Yes here is what you need to do.... give him to me and that will fix his problem
:lol: Not a chance!! :wink: :lol:
No, i cant see his backbone or ribs. I can feel his backbone lately.
He just has such a tiny waist (which im jealous of!) and such a big head.
He is only year & half old, maybe he's still in awkward stage?

I think he looks like he is in perfect condition, does he act hungry?(go crazy when you have your own food or anything like that)

Heehee, him and Atticus are almost identical in their body markings!


Plus they both come equipped with huge noggins!

Is he an inside dog just going out to do his business ? If so, then you could "work him", I mean play more and harder and longer, to build up the muscle, if his body gets thicker w/ muscle, the head will be in proportion.

He looks great!! His deep chest makes his tummy look smaller .I think that about Tora too sometimes and I know she could stand to lose about 5 lb.

Thanks for all the compliments on Orson! :D

No, he doesnt act hungry but he does sometimes want
human food but that is my fault for giving him bites of my stuff.
And he has a treadmill, so i can "work him" inside.
Like Angie said, i guess his deep chest does make his waist look small.
So it's all an optical illusion! And i am a worried mother! :lol:

and I've been showing everyone your videos all week! More please
I have a bunch on my computer that i need to edit and stuff.
I need to send some to Animal planet Funny videos so I can make
100 bucks and get that cool ass t-shirt!! :wink: :lol:

He looks good lean. He is exersized and well fed..You are doing great!!! I think diffrent parts of the year I adjust our dogs food depending on their exersize levels. As long as he is healthy and happy...

He looks fine to me too...he should have a thin layer of 'fat' over his muscles...and you should be able to easily feel his ribs when you pat his chest...

The ribs shouldn't be obvious when you glance at him, but you'll notice them under certain lights, or when the dog is running, etc.
