Molly doesn't look fat to me either!
In fact, my little CoCo looks chunkier.... she's built low to the ground that girl, like a little tank! Our vet said not too worry too much about it on a growing puppy. What we did was not up her food amount for the last few months (she gets 2 x 1 cup), as we were giving her so many "extras" for training and in her Kong. I think it balanced out.

Molly looks good to me. Bruce weighed 100 lbs at his last vet check. Vet said she wanted him to loose 15 lbs. Well he has lost approx 10 and I think he looks good. If he lost another 5 he would look like a bone rack.
Duke thinks she is a cuttie pie!!
I wouldn't put her on a diet until she is full grown, she needs all the nutrition she can get.
Wouldn't a "well built", well exercised dog weigh more due to muscle mass and not fat? When I was into lifting weights, people didn't believe me when I told them what I weighed.... muscle mass adds weight but is a "good" weight. Why wouldn't dogs fall into the same thing?
IMO, I would be more concerned about Molly if you could physically see fat on her..... and I personally don't see anything fat about her.
If she's fat then Jasper has a BIG weight problem
Her weight sounds good and I think she looks perfect
I'm sorry....but where is the fat? If that photo is telling the truth, she is lean! I'd be hesitant to decrease her food intake but would just up the exercise a bit.
