Just wondering about size and weight of dogs..or more appropriately, how they should look at their correct weight.
My cocker spaniel is about 8kg (she's litttle, the runt), and I have to keep on top of what she eats, as she will gorge on whatever is available.
I've heard some people say that you should be able to see the dogs ribs (at the rump end), and that their waist's should be fairly slim. I know a koolie who's very slim (can see ribs and spine - although, he's very short haired, long legged etc), IMO far too slim, but apparently, according to his vet, he's a healthy weight.
So, how do you really know? I suppose that there are an array of opinions, as with us humans, about whats healthy - expept that our dogs rely on us.
I look forward to hearing what others think...
