In one corner, wearing skull + crossbones, we have me. A lean, mean carrot eating machine. In the other corner there's Frank, wearing my harness with planes and stuff on it. Frank likes carrots and can be kinda mean to bikes and stuff with wheels, but he's not exactly lean.

Our combined weight is 49.9 lbs. The big question is: who weighs more and who weighs what? Be the first to guess each of our weights and you'll win a package of supertasty Omega treats (duck, chicken or salmon).

If nobody guesses right by this time tomorrow, whoever comes closest without going over wins. And trust
me - you totally want to win.

Since most of you have never met either of us, here are some clues:

Me + Frank, side x side

Frank + Me, frontal

Frank + Me, Jimmy view

Good luck & happy guessing!

I think you guys both weigh 25.15 pounds, Puglet, because you look exactly the same to me. Nice try though!

Megabyte said...

Hmmm, Puglet looks leaner but seems taller and longer than Frank. Therefore, I think Frank is 25.3 and Puglet is 25.

Anonymous said...

Frank - 26.5
Pug - 23.8

That's our guess.

Pug 25,5 Frank 24,8 and you are NOT happy on the first pic :) love you both :) Gosia

ChazthePug said...

This is difficult because your body is taller and longer than Frank's... I say you weigh 25.3 and Frank weighs 25..... I heart duck treats....Although once I got cat salmon treats and they were awesome!!

Pepper the Pugalier said...

Hmmm... I say Frank is 25.7 and Puglet is 24.6.

THE PUGLET said...


My human was checking our solo weights and just noticed that theu don't actually equal the combined weight of 50.3.

I keep telling her scales can't be trusted, but nooooo.

Anyway. She just added our actual weights by hand (with a calculator) and it's really 49.9. So far, no one's guessed right (duh) and if you've already guessed - you can totally guess over!

Frank = 24.6 lbs.
Puglet Baconator = 25.7 lbs.

Ohhhh .... we hope we are right. Those treats sounds amazingly supertasty and while we really shouldn't count our treats before we get 'em, there would be a flavor for each of us. Roxi wants the duck, Lea wants the chicken and I'll take the salmon. Paws crossed - we hope we'll win!

Frank = 25.5 lbs.
Puglet Baconator = 24.4

We think there is only about 1.1 lbs. difference between you and Frank.

Pug - 25.2
Frank - 24.7

Frank may not be lean, but muscle weighs more than, erm, non-muscle! Also, you're taller than Frank. Also, you just ate that entire bag of omegas.

Did we win?

Anonymous said...

Okay - here's a go.

Frank: 23.9
Puglet 26

This estimate it based on that day you had hives in May and weighed 26.5. I think maybe you lost half a pound during the summer. Plus, you are way taller than Frank, and that means you can be heavy but look skinny (which is why you are a super pug-model, of course).

Ollie said...

You're muscular, taller and have less tummy. You have fur folds, meaning lower body fat (see in the jimmying picture how your neck fur folds but Frank's is smooth because he's got more fat?).

Frank is kind of tubby and well padded; like a solid little sumo wrestler.

So based on my scientific observations, I think there's got to be a 2 lb difference.

Frank - 25.9
Puglet - 24.0

Frank, we still love you even with the extra chubb! Just go visit the cows more with Puglet and Dutch.

Payton said...

This is so very hard! I'm guessing that Frank weighs slightly more because even though you are taller Pug, Frank is a tiny bit more beefy.
I'm going with a very close race:
Pug is 24.9 and Frank is 25.
My paws are crossed!
PS. Love the pics of you and Frank!

Ummm we thinks:

Puglet Baconator 25.54
Frank Jimmy 24.76

Jen said...

Napoleon and Janey barked this out for a long time. Our family guess is going to be....

Frank: 26.3 lbs
Puglet: 23.6 lbs

Anonymous said...

Pug 24.6
Frank 25.3

Final answer !


Taryn said...

Knowing you are a taller/longer pug and one that gets lots of exercise, you may well weigh more than Frank. You know, being so buff and all. So my guesses are Puglet: 25.5, Frank:24.4

moPSY+MISIOber said...

haha Pug 25, Frank 24,9 :) ???

The Fabulous Felines in MD said...

Ummm we had to re-thinks due to the new combined weight. Our new guesses are:

Puglet Baconator 25.54
Frank Jimmy 24.36

Gunnie and Gabby "The Gabbinator"

You've been looking very non-tubey lately and have not been complaining about being forced to diet so I guess.....

Puglet Baconator 24.5
Frank Jimmey 25.4


Gracie the Agility Pug said...

Frank, dude, cut back on the carbs. You are a little tubey. Pug, you look lean and non-mean.

Frank - 25.1
Pug - 24.8

signed, skinny (because I do agility) and starving, and NEED to win the treats, Gracie

Christa said...

Puglet 24.3
Frank 25.6
Hope everyone has a great day! :)

The Slimmer Pugs, Kitties, and Mama said...

Since around 1/2 of us'uns are around your size'ums...we will guess the following:

Puglet: 22.6
Frank: 27.3

We figure if you eat those nasty carrots then you must weigh alot less than your snack goal of 25...however you did have that "incident" a post or so ago...hmmm...we'll be kind and keep our guess'ums.
Much luvums,

Barney the pug said...

I think that even though Pug is leaner and meaner, you are also taller and stronger. I know that I am a BIIIG pug. Even though I'm not *fat* per se, I can't seem to weigh less than 24 lbs because I'm just, you know, tall and big boned and have a lot of muscles.

Pug - 25.2 lbs
Frank - 24.7 lbs

Crabbie Chris said...

I can't guess because I already know the answer, but I just want to point out, that you're both super handsome....but no Dutch HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Kathleen Drew said...

Brody and Mia, Oregon pugs says Pug weighs 24.9 lbs. and Frank weighs 25. I agree that although pug looks a little leaner, he is taller and muscle weighs more than chub. :)

Brutus, Ellie, Pippa and Otto said...

We think that you are both pretty close to the same weight... this is pretty hard, but here is our guess:

Pug - 25.5
Frank - 24.4

Maggie the Pug in Dallas said...

I love the pics of you and Frank...hmmmm, I bet one of ya'll weighs as much as me so I am going to guess you Puglet are 24.5 and Frank is 25.4! I hope I'm right but if I'm wrong that's ok too, it was fun playing!

Anonymous said...

LOl. This is a riot!! I find this so hilarious for some reason...

Pug Slope said...

It's nice to see us larger pugs represented. In the pug pack in our neighborhood, all the pug's weigh in the teens! I'm in the low-to-mid twenties depending on the day of the week and whether or not I stole a whole package of Newman's Ginger-O's or not.

You guys both look great, so I wouldn't change a thing but it appears to me that Puglet is leggier and longer.

Puglet Baconator = 26.2
Frank = 23.7

P.S. If by some miracle I win, I'll donate my treats to Puglet because I have insane food allergies and you are my super-model role model, Puglet.

Anonymous said...

You: 24.6
Frank: 25.3
You are both sugercute!
If I win, please give my treats to a dog in need (I have allergies and I'm a tad overweight already)!

Robin and Randy said...

Ok Puglet - you are definitely leaner... 24.5 lbs
Frank - sorry the belly and haunches are largess... 28lbs.
Good luck on the treats everyone!

Noodles said...

Hi Puglet and Frank
While you are both devilishly handsome, you are not at all alike in girth or height. I am not gonna guess a weight because I am a lousy guesser BUT
Puglet I am SURE you weigh less because although you are taller, you are lean lean lean. AND you are more active than Frank PLUS your human would freak if you were too close to the TREAT CUT OFF of 25 pounds. So while I know your weights may be close, I am gonna tag Frank as the tubbier of the two of you. But FRANK . . . totally love ya dude.
Love Noodles

Mr. Murphy said...

Frank:27 - my goal weight BTW
Puglet: 22.9

Mr. Murphy - 28.9 ugh

Hi Puglet and Frank
Here is our guess


Hope we win

Lola said...

Our guess is Pug 25.3, Franky at 24.6
I, too, will have to donate my treats if I win because of crazy allergies. And a little tubiness of my own. My mom made me say that, even though I would love to eat them myself.

Hi Puglet,
We're not going to guess the weight, only because if we won Emmitt can't eat the treats... sensitive stomach!

But we think that Frank is a tad bit heavier than you..

This time we have a winner! My girl Lola in Lafayette guessed right: I weighed in at 25.3 and Frank was 24.6.

Don't ask me how I weigh more than Frank. I mean, hello! He's got rolls where I've got ribs. My human swears a pound is a pound no matter what it's made of -- but maybe muscle really does weigh more than chub??

Anyway. Congrats to Lafayette Lola! If you're 100% sure you (or a friend of you) really don't want some tasty Omegas, let us know where they should go. We can always Randomizer them here on the DP? Donate to pug rescue? Whatever you want - they're your Omegas (even if you can't eat them).

Oh, and HUGE thanks to everyone who voted me skinnier than Frank! Not that chub is bad or anything - but the skinnier I am, the more I get to eat!

Two Pugs in a Pod said...

Awwwww, MAN! Off by .1!! Soooooo CLOSE! Congrats Lafayette Lola...even though you can't eat 'em. ;)

moPSY+MISIOber said...

Congrats Lafayette Lola! I also voted Frank is skinnier, but he must be because you are taller! This is the only reason!!! Taller must eat more because he needs more energy! Please tell thos to yor Human :) kisses Gosia

You two look really great, no matter what weight you are. Two very handsome pug boys!

My mum says that I look like Frank's twin and she is right - we are almost identical. I have short legs, lots of muscles and big bones. And our faces look so very similar. I have got this tiny weight problem, no matter how much I walk or move and I am never overeating. I race around hours in the park - ahem, I am never slim.

But my mum loves me however I am. That's a good feeling.

I weigh 9,2 kg which equals 20.28219 lbs or 1.44875 stone or 0.0101411 short tons or 0.181091 long hundredweight. I never knew all these units of measurements existed *sigh*. It makes it all worse ..

Congratulations Lafayette Lola, well done.

ONE DOLLAR!!! Ooops, wrong show....

Congratulations Lafayette Lola!! You must have superspecial orbs for figuring out weight just by looking at pictures. (Remind me never to show you my picture....) Enjoy!!

Amy said...

It's a very close call, but since you're longer than Frank, I'll guess


Max the Jack Russell, Pearl and Goldey and Autumn said...

Hi Pug,

We think Frank is 25.5, and you are 24.4. That is our best guess. Oh, and Max is eating the treats. Not us. ;)
