Well, maybe just "Furred Down" lol. In any case, Gibson is looking a lot less pudgy lately! If you remember, in late February I took him to the vet and he weighed 26lbs when I thought he only weighed 19 (according to our home scale). This kind of freaked me out since he was only 7 months old, so we fed him less (went from 2 cups a day to 1.25-1.5 cups a day) and walked him more (3 instead of 2 a day). His weight hasn't changed much (25 lbs), but my husband and I can definitely see a physical difference! His belly is higher than his chest (it used to pudge out below his ribs lol) and his hips are well defined. We can feel his ribs but not count them. So, I think he is in pretty good shape for now :)
This was him back in March:
Now check out that waistline!
Of course, the fact that he is 'blowing his coat' for spring is helping the situation also. I cannot believe the amount of hair that comes off of this dog! During the winter, I'd swipe the furminator over him once a week and only get a handful of hair.. Well, now, I can keep brushing him forever and the hair does not stop coming out! Just yesterday I filled up a wastebasket with hair by just brushing his tail! Which isn't even a tail, it's a nub! lol I couldn't believe how much hair was hiding in that little puff on his butt.
