The most important sporting event after the Olympic Games is the World Cup, the World Cup in football. It was held for the first time in history in 1930 in Uruguay. From then until now, we have been waiting for the start of this great competition with great uncertainty.
This year the World Cup is being held in Qatar, and while the euphoria continues, we present to you incredible photos inspired by this great event.
Eric Isselée was inspired by the most important side thing in the world to create incredibly funny photos of dogs AND connected them to the football team of the country they come from.
- Dogo Argentino
The Argentine dog, also known as dogo argentino or Argentine mastiff, as its name suggests, originates from Argentina, and the creators of this breed are the brothers Antonio Norez Martines and Agustin Martines.

Chihuahuas do not usually show fear; even though they are a smaller breed, they do not see their size as a disadvantage.
4. Russian Husky
Huskies are an intelligent breed, and intelligence is often the reason why owners can’t handle them. The character of this dog is so strong that it will think twice or even three times before doing what the owner asks of it. If he concludes that he does not like that order at that moment, it is possible that he will not carry it out – continues the experienced owner of Siberian Huskies.
These dogs are calm and social indoors and can be quite lazy. They are sensitive dogs that can become ideal family pets for inexperienced owners! Although they are gentle by nature, their natural hunting instinct is always present and owners must be prepared to take on the necessary responsibilities if they take this dog.
