Meet the Incredible Hulk of Hounds

from the UK Daily Mail:
 
Maybe they should call her a whoppet - after all, she's a whopper of a whippet.
 
This is Wendy, the dog whose appearance is a long way from the usual long, lean and sleek look of her breed.
 
She was born with a genetic defect which has left her looking like the Incredible Hulk of Hounds.
While her head, heart, lungs and legs are the size of those of a normal whippet, her gene defect means she is "double muscled".
 
She weighs 4st4lb - twice as much as she should - and has bulging neck muscles, burly shoulders and haunches like a baboon. And unlike ordinary whippets known for their lithe and narrow frame, this four-year-old pedigree doesn't just have a sixpack stomach, she has a 24-pack.

(btw, 4 stone, 4 pound = 27 kilograms)
... oh, all right... 27 kilos is almost 60 lbs.
