wow, 1/2 cup sounds so small--does he have a nutritional supplement with it, or is it enough? how much exercise does he get? i don't exercise zack every day. by exercise, i mean taking him to the dog park to run with the dogs and run around the big park for an hour or so. sometimes it gets too late after work. i was just wondering how much exercise rory gets and whether it makes a difference in preventing post neuter weight gain, or whether he's gaining in spite of exercise.

(in the photos, i can't really see any sign of being overweight--he looks just right).
