Know what's funny about fat dogs?
Nothing is funny about fat dogs.

Eddy, you never call!

Wow, it took me until 1:22 in the Dogfit movie before I could say for certain whether or not he was serious. Of course dogs can't do CrossFit... no opposable thumbs Focker.

Comment #16 - Posted by: Jonny Utah at December 7, 2011 9:17 PM

Awesome job, Bloodfart (Eddie Ifft)! This truly is Jason's calling.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Sweet Assassin at December 7, 2011 9:47 PM

1. Great piece on Zach
2. Praying for Zach and his family
3. More in the journal, really? Wow, that is crossing the line. I did not see that one coming. The community is better than that, but the enterprise obviously is not. I am embarrassed.

Comment #18 - Posted by: kip at December 8, 2011 12:33 AM

Must be a real honor to know Zach. That made a grown man cry. Nice work, HQ.

#18 -- agree with you across the board

Comment #21 - Posted by: Ann at December 8, 2011 7:00 AM

Been DogFitting for six months with Scout (black lab). She's deadlifting 1/2 bodyweight. I just roll the bar over her neck and she arches up, but I still have to balance it. She's got paws off the ground pushups, great speed on repeating 100 meter dashes, box jumps, and jump rope - of course I twirl the rope! -sheesh! The "no opposable thumbs" thing makes anything with the bar or rings a challenge. We're just starting to work on a muscel-up. Are there other crossfitters who've come up with good subs for Oly lifts for DogFit?

Comment #22 - Posted by: Dave Smith at December 8, 2011 7:05 AM

Dogfit was awesome!

Comment #23 - Posted by: NAMWIZ at December 8, 2011 7:37 AM

I have Zach and the other Panther CrossFit bros back in Pitt to thank for my lifestyle, my occupation, and unique love/hate relationship with Old Crow. If anyone can pull through this, it's Zach Miller.

Keep fighting, buddy. You've got your friends, family, and a whole community pulling for you.

Prayers for Zach and his family.

As far as DogTown goes, that's some of the funniest stuff I've seen in a long time. Did you know that laughing realeases endorphins? And we all know how good that is. So please, stop taking yourself so seriously and laugh a little and benefit from it.
