    How cute! A pair of Dobermans is such a nice idea but they're so much work lol.

    She actually looks fine to me. She doesn't look too skinny. Looks quite normal.

    Can't always judge by the numbers, but from the look of her she seems to be fine. I can't see her ribs but the pics are blurry too. Their tails look quite short too...am I seeing that right?

    Newbie here.. the common sense is, when the dog is fat, we can buy the low fat dog food to feed the dog, but I saw a low protein dog food also at the pet store, so is it the same purposes?

    I forgot about this thread.
    Since my last posting we’v managed to get Rocky down into the 80s.
    He was 86 on last vet visit in November I believe.
    He was 104 at a visit in 2016.
    Between a cut in diet and making sure he gets some action at least once a day real well or two short sessions spread out through the day. Which, he prefers :)
    If I’m home during the day I toss the ball upstairs many times throughout the day too, and play catch it as well.
    Make him go to the top of stairs, and sit. Then toss the ball so (if perfectly tossed) he won’t have to break the sit.
    He’s gotten pretty good at it and rather prancy when he does:D :dobe:

    Pics above would be before and I can’t really see a noticeable difference besides a top view where he’s a bit more slender through the waist to show more hip.
