awww how could they let it get that fat?!
Don't you know? Because he was hungry - kept going to the bowl...oh, and because they LOVE HIM and share their meals with him...but mostly because he 'acted like he was hungry'...

Lordie, if I did that I'd be in the poor house <LOL>! My dogs will ALWAYS eat food put in their bowls - they're not stupid..but they are also not fat! If my dogs gain weight, I simply cut down on the amount of food I feed - it's that simple.

Hey, just thought I would share what happened today when I went to the pet store. I had Regen with me who is 16 mo. and I was picking up treats for tracking. Of course someone had to say what a nice dog I had and started talking. This guy shared that he used to have a male rottweiler a long time ago. I also shared that we have a male and two more females at home. He then shared that his male rottweiler weighed 160lb. Of course my response was that he must have been fat, and the guy said, "No way, he was nothing but muscle!" I didn't argue with the guy, just told him that our male rott that we lost last February weighed 113 lb. and was fit and trim and was well within the rottweiler standard.

I just have to vent as I am so sick and tired of hearing stories from people who either have/had a rottweiler who weighed 160 lb. plus, or know someone who does. Does anyone else out there get the same thing? I'm not saying that a 160 lb. rottweiler is not possible, I'm just saying that that rottweiler must be fat/overweight. What is it about people that makes them think that a 160 lb. rottweiler is something to brag about? :mad:

Anyway, thanks for listening to me VENT!!!!!! If you have any suggestions on comebacks that I haven't already tried, please share! If you have heard a similar story I like to hear it. :confused:
Our Boy Tyson is a German Rott, he's 2 1/2 yrs old and weighs 160lbs. He's never had human food, only gets the best healthy dog food, is worked daily, 2 mile walk plus fetching a chuck it 30-40 times. He's beautiful, our family member and in no way Fat

WOW!!!! He's Great Dane size. If he is a German Rottweiler and he comes from Germany he should fit in the breed standard, and for a male he is either way too tall and heavy or he is fat. It's really hard to tell from your pictures, but it looks like he may have some Mastiff mixed in him??

Since this thread is 11 years old, I'm going to close it. Feel free to post some more pictures and introduce yourself.
