Rush is getting bigger. He definitely getting more of a big dog look to him.

Even though he is bigger he still has a lot of puppy in him.

Never in my life have I ever met a hungrier dog. You would think that poor Rush is deprived on a regular basis because he is OBSESSED with food. He eats his dog food in about 15 seconds. Literally. If he knows you are holding treats he is absolutely frantic. He is one of those dogs who would eat until he burst.

It seems kind of strange because I know for a fact that he has always been well fed, even as a small pup before I got him. He really is a nice pup, but poor thing....he's not very bright. Either that or whatever intelligence he does possess is far overshadowed by his frantic food freak outs.

Good thing he's cute.

Those dogs are just too cute! Nice.

BTW, I'm still waiting for you to tell me whether you want a parrot screensaver (windows only) or parrot wallpaper from the contest you and Ish won.

I dog sit for a friend on a pretty regular basis, and he is the same way. He just inhales his kibble. I've found that if I soak it in water he can't 1, eat it as fast, and 2) actually gets full. Besides, making him sit and stay while the kibble soaks is good training.

He is cute. I don't know about your KBD, but mine isn't food obsessed. Well, he does like treats, but his food can sit out all day and he only eats it when he's hungry.

My Karelian is definately not obsessed with food. She takes her time when she eats and never wolfs her food.

She is also MUCH smarter than poor rush.
