    I'm so proud!

    We took her to P@H to get weighed and she's up from under 30kg to 38.1kg! :D

    On the way home we took her on the bus which also had a rottweiler bitch (beautiful). Luna was wonderful. She was interested but didn't react. A few times she tried to lean over and sniff the rott but of course on a moving bus I couldn't allow that to happen.

    I am so proud. I almost decided to not get on the bus because of the rott but I'm so glad I did!!

    Sadly though she met my father in laws boxer again and wasn't impressed :rolleyes: but Brody is only a few weeks younger than her and extremely boisterous. I'd be annoyed too :lol:

    No she wasn't ill. She just wasn't putting weight on :( She's perfectly fine now though, a proper chunky monkey lol!

    Aw hun :( I'm sure he'll bulk up soon x

    Not very long! About 2-3 months :eek: I forgot to weigh her at the vets when I took her the other day but the vet said she was well in proportion so I don't think she's gained too much too fast. She must be having a massive growth spurt :lol:

    He's 23lbs according to the vet who likes dogs slim he has sighthounds he should be 28-30. You can really see it too I get people asking me if he's sick. But we'll get there eventually. He's put some on I know it doesn't sound like much but I don't like it

    She sounds like a great dog gorgeous too of course

    Ohhhh he's so small!!! :D He's only got 5 or so lbs to go, you'll be there in no time :) I used to worry about Sky as she was terrible for not putting on weight. She was 34kg at one point but has gone back down to about 28kg. I realised she was running too much and not eating enough but she's regulating her own food. If she only wants half of what's in her bowl I don't force her to finish the rest. She'll probably be up and down all her life but she looks good and is healthy so I'm happy :)

    You're so biased :lol:

    It doesn't feel like that when he decides to stand on your stomach to lick your face lol. He's small but strong. He should get it quickly he loves his food. My friend has a golden like that he's pretty much been underweight from 6 months or so eats a lot but never really puts on weight. Lots of blood and hormone tests later they decided nothing was wrong and gave up trying to put weight on him.

    I do love mastiff faces I have to admit and she's lovely.
