Weight watchers

Posted by laurie on September 30, 2010

Stanley got a little chunky so we put him on a diet. It worked! He’s at his fighting weight!

Sherman was on a mini-diet, and Phillip thinks that he is now underweight. I’m not sure. You can’t see his ribs. Your opinions?

And guess who has lost 21 pounds with just 4 more to go? Doesn’t he look great?!

    stanley looks great! however, I do agree with phillip on sherm. although you can’t see his individual ribs, you can see the rib cage a little too much. a pound or two would look a little better.

    dont you wish you could give them all the food they desire and they stayed a healthy weight? no measuring and trying to get it right? works with some dogs but certainly not mine!

    Sherman is too skinny! Phillip is looking great! Stanley is absolutely suave & debonair!

    A pound or two for Sherm is okay, however to me, they all look just fine!

    Stanley looks great. I do agree that Sherman looks a little underweight. A little more chow for him would do the trick. You can see the rib cage a little too much I think. Phillip looks great.

    The Kramer boys are looking good! My beagle Marley and I could certainly benefit by dropping a few pounds. What’s the secret?

    Sherman looks a little under weight to me. As they say on Animal Planet he needs more groceries.

    I’m going to ditto everyone. Sherminator looks a little too thin there. Stanley and your Phillip look FAB!

    You guys are such great parents! I read one time that if your beagle is overweight….YOU aren’t getting enough exercise! Our three are all over weight as am I. Keep up the good work and don’t worry about Sherm- he will put it right back on….it’s the beagle way of life!

      I agree with Kim, little Sherman may be a pound or two underweight, but it’s nothing to be alarmed about. He is just a petite little fella. Really, all three Kramer boys look great! Good job!

    All your boys look great, but I agree with the others that Sherman could you a little more around the middle. We had to get about 5-6 pounds off Spunky a couple of years ago and, thankfully, have managed to keep it off. She’s still not as slender as your little guys, though. Does anyone know – are females tend to be chubbier than males? (Beagles, not people:) )

    • Spunky's Mom said

      ….sorry, that’s DO females tend to be chubbier, not ARE females tend to be chubbier. Changed my wording, but forgot to change all of it….

        I don’t know about anyone else, but I have a harder time with getting weight off my girls. It seems easier with the guys, don’t know why. However, in defense of my girls, they are pretty muscular–it isn’t just fluffy fat.

      • Kate said

        Grew up with Female Beagles, and it was harder to keep weight off, or simply get it off! It does seem easier with my guys.

        Much like in the human world!!! ugh!

    • Cobalt & Onyx's mom said

      Cobalt, our male, has always been stockier than Onyx, our female. But she is the more active of the two.

    Impressive results, but Sherm is a tad too thin. You need a little meat on your bones in case you become seriously ill. My Blue has lost weight also. I replace some of his chow with cooked veggies. Measuring all their food is important.

    Of course, if anyone really wants to lose weight fast, there’s nothing like ulcers and ibd. A cruel boss helps also.

    Finally thanks folks

      Hey C. Siding.

      Looking Good! I lost 15 lbs earlier this year and threw out (donated) all my “fat pant”. Be sure to do that!

    How did Phillip lose the weight?

    Darn men! They drop it just by walking an extra block!

    Everyone looks good but Shermie looks a little thin.
