    Plus I think I'm puzzled that she doesn't need more given the extra exercise she gets here - oh well, I'll just have to think of her in the way that I think of myself - I only have to smell food and it goes straight to my derriere!

    Okay, must not feel guilty, must not feel guilty....
    True, we all have different matabolisms, dogs included. Oh to be a greyhound! lol.

    How much you feed depends entirely on the type of food! Do the bigger dogs get a different brand of food? I understand you may feel bad in the apparent lack of quantity of her feed, but if it's a super premium brand then you feed a lot less, so don't feel guilty, despite the sad dog eyes!!

    I dunno

    Some people / dogs metabolise cabbage better than others. In my experience it comes back to haunt us. So I don't have it often and neither does the dog.

    Maybe I should feed her up on boiled cabbage and send her to the b/f for a few days...
