Duke eats pretty fast too. As long as she's not choking or throwing up she's ok. And she's a very pretty girl!

Sasasola, thank you. She is lovely. She's throwing up or choking. Just eats fast.

She looks a bit on the skinny side, I can see quite a few of her ribs. You may want to consider a better quality food. Eukanuba is not a very good quality food, it has lots of fillers and not much nutrients so she should be getting fed more to get what she needs as far as nutrients. Not sure what it says on the bag of food, but they have a suggested amount to feed per day depending on the weight of your dog. If you feed 3x per day then split the suggested feeding into 3.

Check out: Dog Food Reviews and Ratings | Dog Food Advisor regarding good quality food.

LOL! Yeah Duke was eating pretty fast too and it was causing gas because of the air going to his tummy scarfing so fast. So I started putting a rubber Kong ball in the middle of his bowl and it worked like a charm just to slow him down.
