Bubba's owner David Barrett, from Prestwick, Ayrshire, told local media that his greedy canine friend snuck into the kitchen and stole the turkey from the kitchen counter.

Well, that's the mantra a five-year-old Chi Apso named Bubba (a cross between dog breeds Chihuahua and a Lhasa Apso) adopted - and she didn't even wait until Christmas Day to do so.

According to her owners, Bubba left just a tiny scrap of the turkey breast for the family of three to enjoy, because she is very kind and considerate.

"She (Bubba) just couldn't move".

Luckily, the family did not go hungry after an aunt gave them one of her two turkeys to eat. "It was pretty big, a whole turkey breast", explains David.

The food may have been wasted, but not the opportunity to capture the hilarious scene on camera.

'No chance has my dog scranned the whole turkey for tomorrow, ' the exasperated owner said before sharing the image.

"There's the culprit she can't move. She's not moved since she scranned it".

The Barrett's relatives were able to save Christmas Day dinner by bringing their own turkey and chubby Bubba is to be put on a New Year's diet to burn off all that excess bird.

Owner David Barrett tweeted a photo of a bloated Bubba on Christmas Day (Dec 25) collapsed on the floor, unable to move and the hilarious pic quickly went viral, racking up 24,000 likes and almost 10,000 re-tweets.

One Twitter user said: "She's the same shape as the turkey, oh my god".

Meanwhile, another added: "Looks like she's about to burst".
