Talking Strange thing to see with new puppy but mabye im just inexperienced :)

Hi there, I am new to the forums, My name is Lori and HELLO!

I have a 2 month old Golden Retreiver who is playful, eating, drinking, loving, cuddly and all around seems great. He was the runt of the litter according to the breeder and it was evident by his skinny flank. When he came to us 2 weeks ago we worked on making him realize all that food was his and only his, now he knows it and enjoys eating even with my big hand poking around in there :P

Here is my concern for him. He got up from his nap and we went for pees then came inside to eat some chow. I stood above him just being a mom and wanting him to eat and when I looked down at him his flanks look..."sucked in" for lack of being able to describe it. they were sunken on the sides quite dramatically. Once he finished eating and drinking and we walked around they seemed to "pop out" lol hard to describe. has anyone seen this before? again he is acting completeley normal just a visual thing from my side.

Thx guys!
