We've worked really hard to get Sofia to her optimum weight of 78 pounds.. She stands 29 inches at the shoulder and a shadow of ribs show... she's healthy and seems very happy. Uno problemo... she has a ummm.. sorta.. saggy tummy...

Yesterday we took her to the wharf and fishing docks to look at the huge sea lions who line the docks and beg for little bits of fish.. She was entranced by the creatures who were not only bigger than she was.. could bark louder. nose twitching, stub going a mile a minute.. she was in fishy smell heaven.

Once again HRM was a great ambassador for the Doberman breed allowing little ones to come up to her pet her and get kisses...

One of the ladies asked: " Esta su perra pregnato?" Luckily for Sofia she doesn't speak a lot of Spanish and this being bikini season, she is MOST aware of her figure...

any thoughts  how to tighten up her ummmm... saggy stuff?

Our vet says, it's because she had so many litters... her coach Dad says she doesn't do enough crunches..

thoughts?

It doesn't necessarily mean she's had a lot of litters.  Some girls just don't tighten up like others.  For instance, my Shelby had one litter and she's kinda saggy, too.  I was at the vet's office with her once, when another visitor asked me when she had her puppies and I said "A year ago!"  I've had other girls that tighten right back up and look like they never had a litter.  They just seem to have differences in that department.  I really wouldn't worry about it.  IMO, it's one of those things that is what it is.

I think HRM is perfectly fine the way she is...she's knows she looks good and doesn't need a tummy tuck or anything of the sort to make herself look better.  She's gorgeous...

Awww mi Fanito Pequeno.. Gracias!!

She is so sweet.. and who cares if she has a middle aged spread.. ( shhhh she's listening) She's our 'sweet kisses' and is the 'bestest girl in the world!!'

So glad your HOA nightmare is turning out for the best.. You and Rene have worked so hard to establish Kratos as a great dog and also shows that he is another ambassador for the breed..

Evil puppies have a way of growing up to be incredible and regal DoberKings!! You've got one in the making.

Thanks Kate,

Trust me we really are trying, we have worked so hard and Kratos as well so we refuse to let go of him that easily!

But your girl truly is the best!  Give HRM some kisses for me...

Make sure she is not listening when you read this, but it was not only having the puppies that has had it's way with her middle, it was that spare tire. Red has a lot of extra skin also, and after a year, I not sure he will ever have tight skin again. (Remember he went from 147 to 100).

Just tell her we're not all lucky enough to have the genetics of Heidi Klum!

Heidi Klum is a freak of nature!

Thanks y'all.. ... we've had a shift here and allienation of affection.

I brush her teeth..I comb her hair, I buy her new clothes.. I give her three lovely low-cal meals a day. I even wash her face everyday with baby wipes.... 

But...

We'll be sitting on the sofa doing our usual cuddle time.... Mike will walk into the room and I'm dumped.. Dropped like a hot potato.. She leaps off the sofa.. will do the wiggly strut over to him as if he's been gone for a week...

Goes to show parenthood isn't all it's cracked up to be.. she'd rather run the fields with HIM than learn how to file her own nails with me...  Hmmmphh!!

One man dog? you bet!!! At least in THIS house.. see if she ever gets another royal purple collar from ME!!

We had that divide in our house too...it used to be that she would get super excited for me and whimper a little when I left her alone with my husband and barely get off the couch when he got home.  Now she is still excited to see me as well as him BUT her and I have a serious power struggle everyday!  I know she just wants to play but she is playing too hard...when I correct her she snaps at me tries to dominate me doesn't listen etc.  But don't worry I always win even if she gives me the cold shoulder and breaks my heart a little every time. LOL

Yeah she wants to use Harley (the cat) as a chew toy and he pretty much hates her.  He is pretty grumpy and has a skin disease which makes it even worse.  She used to play with my other cat a little but we lost him about a month ago to a very aggressive tumor in his mouth.  So she back to torturing Harley.
