Basil is a fetch MANIAC!

He makes me throw everything and anything for him, it's hilarious. It's times like these when I wish my camera was working!! He is laying on my bed like a person, with my cellphone in between his leg and chin. It sounds cute (and it SO is!), but the real reason he is doing this is so that I will be so enammered by his adorableness that I will throw his stuffy, as he has strategically placed his soaking wet, slobbery ring shaped stuffy in between him and myself. What a brat, hehe! It has taken me next to no time at all to pass this off as typical Boston Terrierness ;).

Ok, enough rambling.. I did have a purpose for this post after all! I was wondering if any of you find that your BT's have an unusually fast metabolism? I know that they are active dogs, but I have never seen a dog eat SO MUCH, yet stay so skinny. I haven't even been able to take him on his walks lately because of the rain. He is no where near a skeleton or anything, but you can see his ribs and when he rolls over they're even more visible.. I feel like I'm starving him or something! He eats a little more than his bag of food recommends for his weight and I give him at least 2-4 small treats a day. Since he eats his entire bowl of food at once in the morning, I am thinking about giving him a little more food in the evenings. I don't want my baby fat, but I don't want him underweight either!
