    my dog and I certainly argue LOUDLY over who gets to eat the toast wtih promite on it, and what we have to do to get a bit. ...

    I think I cook more often for me. I don't think I've eaten tinned sardines since I got the dog. But she gets some. If I run out of the cooked stuff. I buy extra carrots.

    I've always been a fit, healthy person. I'm a huge fitness freak which is why my dogs get plenty of excercise but for some reason i haven't incorporated the same type of thinking when it comes to their food.

    I'm slowly getting out of the habit of feeling guilty, that i have to be cruel to be kind, and i have to remember that they are 'master manipulators' and that nobody manipulates me!

    So far i am doing really well lol. She hasn't recieved any 'human' food for 6 weeks everybody in the house is onboard with the diet & every sunday we sit around the scales in enticipation of how much weight she's lost & write it onto her calendar (like the biggest loser lol) that sits on the fridge in full display. I am in full control of her food, nobody else is to feed her so i know EXACTLY how much food she has been given that day.

    I will say they use to waste sooo much food. They would never touch their dry food, they would pick out all the hearts and leave the rest & there would always be leftovers. Now there is never leftovers, and they treat the dry biscuits like it's gold.

    Just ordered a 20kg bag of Black Hawk as i think that would be better to give her instead.

    My furkids are all on ProPac and nothing else. They get fed once a day around 6pm. The borders get 1.5 cups whilst the shelties get just 1/3 a cup . We watch their weight carefully and increase or decrease the kibble as needed. Occasional treats are chicken necks or wings,
    They are all high energy agility dogs and this diet works well for them.
    When one had a cruciate issue she blew out to a few kilos overweight which we fixed by dropping her biscuits by a third and adding cooked pumpkin as a bulker. It took a couple of weeks to get her back in trim.

    She loves the carrots and apples - what a relief.

    I chop them up and give them to her like biscuits, and she just scoffs them down. The other two aren't so impressed though :P

    Hopefully our bag of black hawk shall arrive soon

    Molly is now down to 14.2kg's! I'm so happy, thanks for the input everybody.

    I had to triple weigh her because i was like 'nah that can't be right' but it is, i didn't expect her to lose a kg within the month?!

    I recently weighed Frosty because she was starting to look a bit too cuddly...

    Yup - 1kg over where she usually is and 2 kg over where she should be as an athlete...

    So I've stopped refilling the squirrel dude every time she brings it to me. And I've started making her work for the whole of the dry ration of her dinner.
