Fat boy

Funny story from our Vet check up. Hubby and I had decided that Ollie was fat. I was sure we were going to get fussed at. He looks big and he feels heavy. Well, Vet says he's not fat. He has a little extra around his shoulders but he is NOT fat. He has a stocky build. So here is what we figured out. He has the most hair of the 3 boys and he is in dire need of a hair cut. He is almost twice Bentley's weight. Bentley was 6.5 an Ollie was 11.3. No wonder he felt heavy when we picked him up.

We also found out in the last couple of days that Bentley has not been eating all of his breakfast and Ollie was more than happy to finish it for him. That is coming to a screeching halt.

Same here with Brandy. We felt she may be a bit overweight but Vet said no, she is just a bit more stocky framed than most maltese. So probably the same with Ollie. I have to watch mine like a hawk when I feed them because if one of them dares to leave any food there is always another one willing to help them out!!

Charlie is 9.3 lbs and looks overweight when his hair is long.
