Fat Dogs

I wonder what these dogs eat that makes them so fat?

How much do they eat a day?

Why do their owners feed them so much? My dad taught me that when dogs are this fat, it is bad for their heart, their bones & joints and they can not be as active.

What do you think about fat dogs?


This dog doesn’t really need to lose weight but I thought it was funny how he is holding his bowl… asking for food.



This chocolate lab seems to eat A LOT of chocolate!



Wow. This dog needs TWO seats. I’m sure this dog weighs more than I do.



This is the fattest Rottweiler I have ever seen. Didn’t know they could get this fat.

Fat dog hanging out on the beach.



A very fat poodle lab mix. Seems like this picture was taken a long time ago.



The fattest lab ever. Poor doggy. Looks sad.



This one is funny, checking his pounds on a scale. Normally only humans do this but this dog is watching his weight. 🙂



Boxer is a great name for this dog because most heavy-weight boxers are also kind of fat.



This dog looks surprised… “How did I get so fat!?”



This tubby dog is cute and looks happy but looks like it needs to lose about 50% of it’s weight.



This bulldog looks sort of mean… it could use about 50% of it’s weight!



This Dalmatian looks kind of fake because the head doesn’t fit well with the body.  But if it is real it needs to lose a ton of weight.



This Dalmatian seems really, really heavy… and if I was going to lift this chubby pooch, it would need to lose about 50% of it’s weight.



It’s cool that this person took a before and after picture to show how different a dog can look when it gets so fat. I like the before dog better.



This dog is cute but it needs to lose some weight!



This pooch should be really lucky to go into a restaurant.



This doggy is fatter than me so it should lose a lot of weight.



I like how this picture shows the same type of dog except one is fat and one is skinny next to each other.  It’s sort of funny.



This is really fat for a puppy.  Usually fat dogs are adult dogs.



This sure is a fat weeny doggy.



This wiener dog is really fat.  He looks sort of freaked out and tired.



This one is super-duper fat and needs to lose a bunch of weight.



This beagle mix is very fat. I didn’t think beagles could get this fat.



Here’s a pooch working on GETTING fat.


Tell me what you think about fatso dogs below with your comments…


The Dogs of Cancun, Mexico

I went on a vacation with my mom and dad to Cancun, Mexico last week.

It was actually to a wedding in Xcaret which is near Playa del Carmen.

We stayed at a beautiful villa owned by my dad’s friends’ family ( Thank you Mr. Daniel Marcos.

Anyway, my dad had the idea to take a bunch of pictures of me with every dog we saw on our trip.  We missed a few because we were sometimes in a hurry or in a car and with other people.

But here are the ones I did get:

OK, there are no dogs in this one, but I wanted you to see me having fun on the beach!

So we were having lunch at this cool restaurant on the beach and a really cute dog came to our table.

My dad asked me to walk away from the table to the beach so I could get the beach in the background. Good idea dad!

He was a very well behaved dog!

Here’s a dog that we didn’t get a very good picture of… because we were late to the rehearsal dinner.

Here is a cute little weiner dog and another puppy with their owners who were also very cute Mexican kids 🙂

OK, so these are not REAL dogs but they were neat stacked dog statues in this gift shop. The lady that runs the shop was not going to let us take pictures because there was a sign that said NO PHOTOS.  But my dad convinced her because he told her about my blog. :)  We would have bought the sculpture but we were travelling light.

So we were in this restaurant and my Uncle Ricky noticed a “NO DOGS” sign!

Kinda funny for a restaurant because this is not something you would see in the US but in Mexico a lot of restaurants are open to the street with no air conditioning.  And there are more dogs running around on the streets than here in the US.  I was acting like I was mad that they did not allow my best friends… DOGS! into the restaurant. (again, the pose was my Dad’s idea).

Let me know what you think of my pictures.

You’ve seen the Dramatic Prairie Dog… here’s the DRAMATIC DOG!

My dad found this video from someone who sent it on Twitter.  I had seen the dramatic prairie dog video and I can’t decide which one is funnier!


I can’t decide which one I like better…


Which one do YOU think is funnier: the prairie dog or the doggy dog?

A story of why I’m doing a blog and business

Dog with money

You may not know me but after you read this story you will.

OK maybe not all the way but you’ll know enough for a major situation.

The situation is me (Eirene) and my good friend here (Emma) are going to make $30 each month, for 6 months in a row! Yaaay!

eirene & doggy on the beach

Back to me.  (We’ll continue with Emma later.)

The thing that I wanted to talk to you about is that you know when your father or mother gives you a crazy deal?

Well, that’s what I got.  As you may know, I am making $30 a month for six months.  The reason I’m doing that… well, really there’s two reasons:

First when I do this, my dad will be getting me a doggy and second, I want to learn business.

By the way, I’m in 2nd grade and I’m 7 years old.

Emma I cannot say it all because she made a book and she has an all about Emma page too.

Here is my first non-dog blog post. I hope you don’t mind.

I think this is one of the funniest videos I have ever seen but I sort  of know that it is not real.

Do you think this is funny? you can reply below.

HUGE POOCHES… a post about Big Dawgs!

Today my dad and me decided to look up the biggest dog breeds.

We saw HUMONGOUS dog pictures!  He tells me some of them aren’t real… Which ones aren’t real?  Can you tell?




According to wiki.Answers: People seem to forget that ‘biggest’ does not mean tallest. Biggest usually has to do with volume, mass, girth.

The “tallest” dog by foot-to-shoulder height is the Irish Wolfhound:

eirene-wolfhound (Here’s a picture of me with an Irish Wolfhound… taken when my family and I went to Ireland last summer… His name is Arthur!  He lives in the old castle that was turned into a hotel.  Arthur, king of the castle, get it?)

but the BIGGEST dog (by way of girth, weight, strength, and general size) is the English Mastiff.



Not only the breed, but the largest recorded dog in general (which weighs over three hundred and fifty pounds, and can pull over fifteen hundred).

So here are some more pictures of GIANT dogs… see if you can guess if these are real or Photoshopped.














Half-man Half-dog breed is freaky


When I first saw this ‘dog’ it gave me the heeby-jeeby’s!

But I could tell it was fake… Or is it?  You be the judge.  Please leave comments below telling me if you think this is a REAL dog breed, or if it is a photoshop fake.

Also, if this were my dog, I would name it “Weirdo”.  What would YOU name it?

Dog has nightmare and runs into a wall (in his sleep)!

This is the most hilarious thing I ever saw a dog do!
