Food on dog blog goes viral

A website in which a dog owner balances items of food on his dog's head has become an internet sensation.

The blog, called Food On My Dog, features Tiger, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and American Bulldog mix, balancing a range of snacks on her head.

Owner Andrew Small from Crystal River, Florida, started the website after his dog seemed to enjoy impressing humans with her abilities.

It features a gallery of balanced food including a banana, doughnut, candy floss and rasher of bacon.

The website has racked up almost half a million hits and Tiger even has her own Facebook page.

Mr Small said: "My dad would come round and balance snacks or biscuits on Tiger's head.

"She likes it because she knows she is getting a reward. I wouldn't do it without giving her a reward.

"She doesn't get to eat food that's not good for dogs either. What she doesn't eat, I eat. No food goes to waste.

"In some pictures, such as ones like doughnuts and cakes, she will receive a treat instead."
