What Breed Of Dog Is This?

Maybe It's A Puff, Daddy

Photographs copyright: DAVID McMAHON


Calling all dog breeders - can you identify the pedigree of these creatures? Yes, all right, I know I'm being ridiculous, but it's already Easter Sunday here in Australia and I think all that excess chocolate is starting to take effect.

Now I think I need some exercise, to work off all those calories and kilojoules. Maybe I'll take the dog for a walk.

No, really. I mean the real dog.

Check out the rules at Camera Critters or go to Misty Dawn.

It's that rare breed that is a rapper and has its own line of clothing...

And just think, they're pure vegetarian.

Right?

Right...

Hey David...nice to be finally wandering around online a little and to see you...missed doing this :))

Hilary said...

All that chocolate has made you just a tad flakier than usual. ;)

Happy Easter to you.

Well...in America, dachshunds are known as 'wiener dogs', but I rather doubt (or hope) that they are on the ingredient list here!

(Although with frankfurters, one can never be sure ;-P)

Janie said...

The puffy dogs look like a lot of calories. Even more than chocolate, maybe.

Oskar said...

I would like to eat those dogs!

Seamus said...

I'm not sure WHAT those are but I'd just bet most any dog would gobble 'em down in a nano-second.

This looks like a mixed breed between a Halloween accident and a dachshund. You know how dog owners love to dress up their pets for the one holiday more sugary than Easter? This one was likely made to be a hot dog to poke fun at its body shape. The owners went above and beyond and used real baking materials in the breaded exterior. In the course of the evening, the unenviable canine managed to get soaked in oil before chasing a stray tennis ball into the pre-heated oven.

Anissa said...

Ananda girl said...

Happy Easter to you and yours, David!
Those dogs scare me. We used to call them pigs in a blanket. How did they get to be dogs?

Mattyboy said...

Happy Easter, we are still about 6 hours away here in Canada. Those are my kids favorite breed of dog, they would love to have them for supper.

Manz said...

As per your usual form, this is a very original post.

If I had eaten those dogs for Easter, I think my stomach would be growling at me now. Processed foods may taste yum, however eating them is not always fun.

Eddie Bluelights said...

"Sausage Dogs" as we call them in England. Very long with short legs.
They are really 'hot dogs'
