Ever since I found these forums I wondered if my border collie is fat. There are posts of female border collies averaging 30-35lbs, mine is 52 at 2yrs of age. She has daily walks, runs and frisbee/ball playing in the yard. She eats 2 2cups of dry food, one morning and one evening. When patting her down she feels dense, not fat like you expect a person to be . Her fur is thick and fluffy, especially her rear, so it makes it hard to eye but the pounds don't lie as she seems a little on the heavy side. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
