    DefaultFrankie - overweight?

    Lots of people tell me he's fat, I think he's just beefy He's almost 16 months and probably about 75 pounds. Sorry, this is the only side shot I could get of him, he's stalking a cat LOL! He's not real shapely when I look down on him, but I think he looks good from the side and I can easily feel his ribs.
    What do you think?

    What does your vet say? That's the only opinion I would worry about.

    Looks alot like Tank's shape who is a little overweight but not much.

    I compare Tank to cars as I do myself.

    He/I looks like a nice in shape Lexus sedan but if he/I lost a few pounds we could look like a Corvette ;D

    He hasn't been in a couple of months, he was 71.5 pounds then.* He's going next month for his yearly.

    If you can feel his ribs easily as you say I doubt he is overweight. Many people will pass incorrect judgements on a dogs weight and the best thing to do is just ignore them. I can see that Frankie is more of a show type so he will never look like the tall, lanky greyhound look-a-like BYB Labs that the average person is used to seeing. IMO, Frankie looks great. He is deep chested so that adds to the 'beefy' look.

    I think Frankie looks great, but that's based on the fact that he and Abby are very similar in shape! Sometimes I think she is maybe overweight but I can feel her ribs.
