I wondered that at first, but they're not as fluffy as that.

LOL - I know! I'd love one, but apparently the breeding of them can make some have health problems, such as blisters forming underneath their rolls, but if you buy one that has a certified health certificate, they're usually fine from the word go. It seems that the adults who're covered in rolls might not be so lucky. A mature dog should have rolls on its face and shoulders, but not huge ones all over its body. I read that on a shar-pei site, but I think they're beautiful dogs, and I think the folds look brilliant! : )

OMG!! NO, NOOOOOOooooo!!! :lol:

You make me howl with laughter - no pun intended. I don't believe that for a minute you're anywhere near like that, and even if you are, oh dear... you're so funny. Does it matter?? :naughty:

Anyway, "roly" rotund dogs look beautiful, even though it might not be healthy, so why shouldn't a human be so as well? :shrug:

well, plump babies are cute, although, funny enough, they do get skin problems from their rolls. plump big people not so much.

Oh. Well .... :???: ... that woman's not just plump, but ... somewhat obese!

Having said that, there's a slim person under there bursting to get out. Look at her comparatively slim ankles.

:shrug: Well there you go. She looks happy and confident, and there are men out there who'd find her physically beautiful.
