Call us barking mad, but the latest in our doggie Photoshop series takes on the vibrant world of celebrity food personalities. Though it could seem mean on the surface, it’s all in good fun. It’s an easy metaphor to make, after all: Like our favorite breeds, our most popular TV chefs all have distinctive personality traits and quirks that either endear them to people instantly or that foster a love-to-hate relationship.
Check out these hot dogs and let us know what you think. Have we left out a favorite food personality? Tell us what sort of dog you think they would be in the comments.
Snarly and growly on the outside, but only to scare away the weak people. Like the Tootsie Pop, there’s the sweetest possible center.
Ruddy and ready for palling around or getting some serious work done.
Regal and loyal, but not always the quickest wit in the dog park.
Guards family with amazing fierceness for such a cuddly creature. Can also hide a lot of fattening foods under that fantastic mop.
A bighead who doesn’t always know his own brute strength. Can have trouble hiding his true affectionate side.
Watch out for this pretty lady, who looks demure but hides the heartiest of appetites. She might eat everything in sight if not monitored.
Everyone’s buddy and pal, who can also get down to business when required.
Amiable and dignified, yet also aggressive and daunting. This classic specimen is yin and yang in a powerful package.
Classy, sometimes pampered, and always inquisitive — or maybe that’s just the adorably innocent-looking features.
This cute but sometimes vicious one is tiny but yappingly loud. The smallest breed makes one of the biggest impressions.
Cross this beast at your own peril and plunder. But on the flipside, his true friends get to see the tender underbelly to his personality.
All artistic manipulations by the talented Audrey Fukuman.
