A dog has broken the world record for fattest pet and fattest plane passenger in one fail swoop.
Dragged on to his flight in a luxury bed-cum-trolley, the dog – seemingly King Henry VIII reincarnated – was guided to the front row of first class with its owner.
Let’s hope the air hostesses on the American Airlines flight to Denver had plenty of extra meals prepared.
This picture of the sausage roll-shaped mess has been retweeted nearly 4,000 times at the time of writing.
According to the Twitter user who snapped the dog, @madeleinedoux, the owner had bought two tickets – but the mammoth dog lay silently sprawled by her feet throughout the flight.
Madeleine revealed: ‘Everyone, both while boarding the plane and on the plane before takeoff, was speculating as to how the dog got so fat. You could legitimately hear hushed whispers of “He’s riding first class.”‘
The chubby pup shouldn’t rest on his laurels, though. The record for fattest dog in space is still up for grabs.
