If I "free fed" this pack the way I did my keeshond and other dogs I've owned, they would be as big as a HOUSE! All my dogs get fed twice a day - 1/2 cup of good quality kibble morning and evening - and, though they all tell me they're starving to death, there's not a skinny beagle in the "tenpack". My "expectant mom" is getting more food now - have just increased the amount per feeding a little, plus added a little yogurt with each feeding to give her a little more protein and calcium, and occasional "scrambled egg". She also gets a little "doggie stew" with veggies and hamburger added to her dinner meal. I'm sure somewhere there exists a beagle that doesn't devour everything in front of them in 5 seconds flat, but it sure doesn't live here!
