No I can't see it either.  I think it is due to Photobucket's new payment policies

No can't see it, think you have to pay photobucket for them to allow your piccies you have there in other places. Some COL'rs use a different free service now.

Look under our 'Forum Support' there are a few suggestions on there of who people use now, I think a couple mentioned are Flckr and imbg but as I don't use either not sure how you get the details, sure someone else will though, good luck

In terms of the way he looks, I can feel his ribs and if I pinch the fur around his ribs it feels nothing more than skin. He has a waist when looking from above

If that's how he looks he probably isn't overweight, because that sounds good in terms of body condition. If you do an internet search you'll find lots of charts showing body condition from underweight through to obese. I bet your boy will come into the ideal category.

Cockers vary a lot in build and height, from pocket rockets that are slim and fit at 9 or 10kg up to those who are several inches taller than breed standard height and weigh more than the breed standard average even when slim. Vets often seem to go by breed standard when determining if a dog is overweight, rather than using their eyes and some common sense ;)

Couldn't agree more with Elaine

Yes thankyou Elaine that's very reassuring, I have never thought he looks overweight. He had a play with a 2 year old worker today and owners said theirs was overweight and I could certainly see it.. Leo also went to the groomers today to get rid of his puppy fluff and he's come home looking 5kg lighter haha he certainly dosnt look large to me... He looks beautiful..  but I am biased haha

Hes in fine condition and definitely not overweight AT ALL. In my opinion.
