    Came across these charts on Facebook today - thought it might be useful to put these on file here too

    Those pictures are very helpful! Thanks for sharing.

    So, it looks like Wonka is a Grade I and Nilla is a Grade II

    Yes I'd say that Xanthe was a Grade I on both of them - and far less affected by heat or exercise than my Cocker Spaniel!

    Yes, that's the ideal healthy, slim pug physique. As others have pointed out, that can be hard to maintain, but it's in all likelihood the single best thing you can do for longevity and health.

    Around here pugs seem to start at a 7, with far too many way, way obese

    why is it hard to maintain? regulating food and exercise won't cut it?

    Personally I wouldn't want mine to be quite as skinny as a 4. I think 5ish is ok for me, but it has to be remembered that my eldest pug is still only two and a half years old so quite easy to keep at this score. I've also not owned any pug's before, so whilst like you I might presume it's just down to limiting food intake and keeping up the exercise it just might not be that simple with an older pug. Not just because they might not physically be able to exercise much for various reasons but also perhaps because they are able to use their intelligence to procure extra food items in very creative and imaginative ways, especially when you need their co-operation in some way. I'm already 'signed up in a contract' with the pair of them for bits of arrowroot biscuits at night in order to get their eye drops in! Now that's not something that would ever have happened with any of the German Shepherds or Collies that I owned in the past - they would have just obediently sat and had the eye drops put in!
