Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Trillion is 8 months and 44 pounds.

She gets 1 1/2 cups in the morning and then 1/2 cup at night

she's currently eating Halo's Spots Stew (Salmon recipe)
My mom feeds her dog (Greyhound X Lab) Science Diet (yuck) and he free feeds since it's so hard to keep weight on him but Trillion has a knack for Wolfing down his food if she gets a chance so when we go downstairs for the day in the morning I put it up so she can't get it and the bring it down for him when we leave the room/house.

Even when she hears somebody move his food container thing she runs over to his bowl like it's meal time for her.

Im wondering if im underfeeding her?
the Vet says that she's in great shape (not under or over weight)
What's your opinion?

Sounds like she's getting fed what she needs. All of my dogs would have you believe they were absolutely starving by their behavior, and they are all healthy weights. If they ate how much they wanted they'd be rolly pollies.
