Look at those jowls! He even has wrinkles on top of his head! Oh, that dog is one lard-butt!

I'm kidding, kidding, kidding. That's a handsome Boxer, True Blue! I've got no expertise on this issue, but I note on the first of three pictures immediately above, you can see his ribs.

Do overweight dogs still show their bony ribs?

All this emphasis on weight and body image -- we're going to cause a syndrome in our canine companions if not careful. Eating disorder contagion. Watch out!

He looks soft, but not really overweight. He could stand to maybe lose a few pounds, but I wouldn't say he's overweight. He looks to be intact? Most intact makes are going to weight a little more also as they're fuller most of the time. How tall is he? If you post a pic from above him it would help also.

I can see a couple of ribs not clearly but still. Maybe a couple of pounds by this pic but not 20!
