What do you guys think?

he has been resting for two weeks because I thought he damaged his back leg but it turned out to be a muscle pull thank god.

He weighed 78 pounds at the vet's this Saturday, he eats two cups of taste of the wild a day.

He doesn't look fat, but he could use some toning. Start shaping into what you want.

He looks like he has an nice hrglass shape. He might benefit from a little additional muscle toning.

I guess his brindle coloring doesn't help revealing his muscle tone though lol

Brindle dogs are difficult to photograph well. Cree is stacked like a brick house, but it doesn't really give you any incling of an idea of what he looks like in person through even HD photos.

He also may just not have the genetics to be seriously cut up.

Brindle is very hard to photograph lol..It just does not show muscle. One reason it is hard to conformation show as well.

I think he looks really good. It is hard to tell in a picture. I have the same troule with my black girl need good lighting and good background. I guess you have to go by how he looks to you do you see fat on him or is he lean only you can judge that.

thanks for the criticism I am happy it appears that Bernie is no longer fat :)

This angle of light is good and shows some muscle definition but this is when he was thicker though. I have to get the sun at the right time to have a good shot lol

I find it's easiest to get the muscle tone shots right as the sun is coming up or when the sun starts to go down. You get the shadowing necessary to emphasize in the right spots.

EDIT: on a sunny day

Every time I see him, I can't help staring at his big ole head, lol. :)

And I can't believe you only feed him 2 cups of TOTW. Kane eats 3, almost 3.5 on his more active days. I wonder if I'm over-feeding him. :(

So at least I know I wasn't the only one- every pic I take of my boy doesn't look as defined as he really Is. Not quite where I want him but far from fat

Thanks :)

Every dog is different, how old is your boy? I can feel bernies ribs when he is standing straight. I still want to lean him out a little more and hopefully serious weight pulling will finish him up.
