Funny thing is Tess looks very good. She is 'fat' compared to AAPs dog, but she is a lean pet weight. I think given the exercise she gets, if I cut back to a normal amount of food she should look good.
My husband thinks Tess is fine and that i want her to look like a skeleton!

You can see his ribs and his spine bumps up in his brown patch

A lean body with being able to see slight ribs is ok but when you can see the spine thats a problem. Just thought Id share. Not meant to tinkle anyone off
