    Kangaroo meat has a paint peeling effect around here, If I could bottle it as a bio weapon i join the arms race.

    I've gotten the best results of adding weight with chicken frames and coating the dog. I had to ease them into lamb very slowly.

    Mickey has been coated of a night all winter and was put onto the mainly raw diet at the start of winter, combine this with no girls being in season for a few months and reaching maturity (nearly 3yo) and I can't wait until the specials come around.

    Good luck with your little man.

    Thanks MAC, I have tried minced frames but he really didn't go much on them and I can't give him necks because he is a swallower

    He is 22 months now, I was hoping once he hit 18 months he would start to bulk out but no such luck, he'a a very late maturer by the looks of it.
    I can't notice much difference yet, we have only been feedng the raw for a little over a week but my OH swears he has gained. He was 5.6kg at his last vet check which was about 2 months ago so will put an update here on Friday when we go back.

    The funny thing is, he is a very refined and elegant dog, he is 3/4 inch under the measure, yet he is right on the knock for the breed weight and in my opinion he needs to put on at least half a kilo.

    I give frames to my lot whole, luckily none are gulpers so can also give chicken necks.

    Lamb mince is a great weight gainer but I've always had to start off on it very slowly, not sure if you have the time for that.

    I also use a working dog kibble. But by far I think the biggest difference has been the coat and warmth.

    I prefer a slow maturing dog, his weight is more than likely in the muscle if he's an active little fellow.

    I'm quite fond of Chinese Crested, could we have a new pic of him?

    I think he looks good, how long ago was this taken

    He's very active so he has good muscle tone. It's just those ruddy pin bones on his hips that I would like to see some cover on.

    Mum bought a big bag of hollistic select for her Basset and he refused to eat it so she gave it to me, Cyrus loves it. Quantity certainly isn't a problem, he will eat all day.

    Hopefully I can get another photo soon, he is behaving much better now so he doesn't crunch his bum under and give himself a wonky topline like the photo above. That photo was taken around the end of March from memory.

    No shows here for 3 weeks then we have 6 over 3 weekends, he just will not stack at home so can only take photos when we are at the showgrounds... he seems to know he can get away with misbehaving at home.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Thanks Jadielee My parents have always had giant breeds so it's nice to live with the little tackers! The heaviest dog I have weighs in at 11kg.

    Here's a puppy photo just for fun, he looked like a little alien
