If you haven't already heard of Vivian the dog, you're in for a big treat. Vivian is a mini dachshund owned by her human, Mitch Boyer.
As of recently, Mitch has been photoshopping images of Vivian to make her in her "true size." He wanted to capture her larger than life personality in a picture. As a result, he has created several realistic looking photos of Vivian being the same size as Clifford the Big Red Dog. Most dachshunds think they're big dogs, but in this case, Vivian is literally huge.
Vivian and Mitch have lived in four states, five cities, and ten different apartments and homes. They've finally settled in Brooklyn, New York and love it there. Vivian likes to believe she's just as big as the city she lives in, and because of that, Mitch has been inspired to create a children's book called "Vivian the Dog Moves to Brooklyn." The book is designed to help kids cope with big changes in their lives such as moving.
Here she is taking a selfie with her human.
Sometimes putting her on time-out can be very difficult, seeing as how she's so big she could just step out of any confined space.
Just hanging out during a lazy day. She typically takes up the entire couch.
She loves enjoying all the small things in life, like spending the day with her human.
She's always on the hunt, searching for that good New York street food.
Taking long walks in the park is her favorite form of exercise, especially with her human by her side.
Ready to see Vivian's REAL size? You won't believe how small she is.
Here's a short video of Mitch the human explaining a little more on the children's book.
