Keegan is a bit tired, here are some pics.  Kiah was trying to get him to play, my "wild child" recovers after about 5 minutes and is ready to go again.

Sharon, do you notice his rib and how much it sticks out.  He is still pretty thin, I can tell he has put some weight on but I can still feel his hip bones but not as much on his spine anymore.

I love it when they are all tired! He is so cute, just trying to soak up some sun- maybe to recharge? :)
I don't think his rib looks normal. maybe it is just the angle of the picture but it looks more like a knot than a rib.  Perhaps it was broken at one time?

It is definately his rib, but the other side does not stick out as much.  I just took them outside and I don't see it if he is standing straight.

We went yesterday afternoon to see the vet, and he said like Sharon did that it was a floating rib and nothing to worry about.  About 5% of dogs have ribs that stick out like this and he thought that once Keegan puts on a bit more weight it won't be as noticeable.

barb - great looking kids as usual!


A small camera tidbit for you (or anyone else) if you are interested.  The third picture looks kind cool because you see Kiah's silhouette, so it's a neat picture.  But if you want to see the details of Kiah (the color of her coat, her face, etc..) you have to force the flash on.  Think of it this way, in the auto mode when you pointed your camera at the dogs it "see's" a lot of light since there is that bright light shining through the door, so it figures it doesn't need the flash, and therefore it's off when you take your picture.  When you force the flash on it lights up everything in the darker shadows and it'll help balance out the light in the picture.  Pictures inside, in front of windows, are some of the hardest pictures to take (unless you are standing right next to the window to be on the "lit up" side of the dog/person/object in regards to the lighting.


I'm turning into a real camera nerd but I love it!!  :)
