    Thanks Auss
    And yes , as Beau said ( I didn't even see you there , good to see you,hope all is well up there ) , the weight varies through this breed .
    What could be considered overweight for one dog will be perfect for the next.

    My dogs are generally a good weight - perhaps one day I can emulate them

    I currently have 2 Pugs of my own, one that weighs 11 kilos and although he is overweight he isn't overweight by much. Monte weighs around 8.5-9 and he is ideal for his size. Little Lilly is only approx 6.8 now and I can not get her to put on weight so she is actually slim for a Pug. I haven't weighed Lulu or Harvey but Harvey is overweight and I would say he weighs in at around 9.5-10 kilos and Lulu is just perfect and would be around 7.5-8 kilos, whilst Mocha, the little girl that went on trial on the weekend was the perfect for her size at 7.4 kilos.

    Some of them weigh only a little but are overweght, while others weigh a lot and are not overweight. These days, you can not judge a Pug by weight alone, it has to be a visual thing.

    I tend to try and keep my Pugs on the leaner side and I advise anyone with Pugs to do this. Show Pugs sadly are too fat if you ask me but this is what the breed specs and the interpretation of the specs say is ideal.

    I agree with DH on this too that many overweight parents have overweight children and animals. I like looking at other people's trolleys when out shopping.... it is really sad to say that those who spend the longest in the soft drink/chip isles are usually those who can least afford to eat and drink that crap. I know, I am critical...but what can I say. It is awful watching people kill themselves.

    I have trouble keeping weight on Griffen, he's a fussy eater. Last time I weighed him was about 3 weeks ago and he was 53kg. He some times looks a bit skinny, my other half keeps saying he 'needs to bulk up' but due to problems with his hips I prefer to keep him lean.

    I haven't weighed Madeline in a long time but I'd estamate (sp) her between 20 - 25kg she's boxer cross bordeaux so I'm not sure what she should be.

    This isn't the most resent pic but it's the only one I could find standing

    Cookie weighs just over 10k (malteese x poodle) but is about 4x the size and 4x less hairy than any other we have met.
    I am overweight but my kids and my pets are not and will hopefully never have to suffer that.
    I have seen alot of huge dogs with really old owners both struggeling to walk its sad to see but I suppose they are trying.

    looks fit to me, wouldn't force more weight. You have an interesting mix of lean boxer and massive bordeaux and she's right in the middle

    my rottie is about 38-40 kg, she varies, and my little pekingese x cocker 11 kg. Both are fine.
