My 5yo smooth coated male "matured" at what looked like a pretty healthy 45 pounds at three years of age. He is now 56 pounds which seems like he "has" to be over weight. But he does not really look or feel that way. Blue is 20" tall at the shoulders and 21" over his hips. Neck, chest and waist measure 16", 27" and 23" respectively. Skinfold on belly = 1/2" (same as mine :-). For an urban border collie, Blue gets lots of exercise. I walk him three miles six or seven mornings per week.

Hi Everyone! First post, new member here. I have been stalking this site since I first met Lexie (my new BC mix puppy) and I have learned so much! A little bit about how I got here.

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!
