No, Margaux's ribs aren't visable. I can feel them though. When think about it, I think she runs around too much!
I would say my girl is on the skinny side, but I think it's just her body type more than anything. Many pugs have a short and stout kind of stature, which I think is what people are used to seeing.
How much does your dog weigh? Lumie is also 8 months old and she weighs 15 lbs.
How much is she eating? And what does your vet say?

I'd say Matilda is skinny too and she'll be 6 months next week. At the vet today she weighed 11lbs8oz. I was surprised that it was that much, because she's so thin. However, she rarely stops moving.

StanLee is 4.54 kilograms now...I had to google a convertor, because I am a lazy American who uses pounds (10 btw). He has gained a lot of weight since I got him...which makes since, he is a growing boy.
He has doubled in weight between each of his vet visits.
He is still skinny, but I think that is normal for a puppy who is full of energy.
You should ask your vet about your concerns. She is probably fine but there could be a chance she is not getting enough food for her body/active life and that's why she eats the way she does. It probably wouldn't hurt to feed her a little bit more.
