My female shepherd Lexi has gained about 10lbs in the last 2-3 months. The last month, she has been on a diet, getting 3-4 cups of food a day. She is the same old girl - very happy - loves to play, chases her brothers around the yard. We walk about 1 mile 2-3x a week. She loves to chase her tennis ball - I quit before she does. She does not act "overly" hungry or thirsty.

She is a big girl, HUGE feet, about 27 inches at the shoulder. I'm not sure of her current weight, but she is very obviously overweight.
I am at a loss - I will be taking her to the vet for a blood work up this week. Does anyone have any ideas?

That was/is my first thought - she is almost 8 years old now. When I searched thyroid, it gave a lot of other symptoms that she does not have....so maybe
