Proud dog owners have shared extraordinary pictures of the struggles of owning huge Irish wolfhounds.
In a hilarious gallery shared to Bored Panda, the overgrown pooches were seen battling to fit onto sofas, in their dog baskets and even into cars.
The sheer scale of the wolf-like dogs, originally bred as hunting dogs in Ireland, is clear in pictures which see the canny canines posing next to baffled babies and bewildered sausage dogs.
Elsewhere the cowering creatures are seen towering over Shetland ponies, as owner are left squashed by their attempts to be lapdogs.
