(a.k.a. Chihuahue(o) (FCI standard)
The F&d&ration Cynologique Internationale (FCI) calls for Chihuahuas to weigh about 34,700 grains. Relative to their body sizes, Chihuahuas have the largest brain size of any dog breed.
It's about four-fifths as heavy as a Brick
In other words, 34,700 grains is 0.780 times the weight of a Brick, and the weight of a Brick is 1.30 times that amount.
(Standard, traditional face brick - 1,900 cu. cm (120 cu. in))
A standard, traditional face brick weighs an average of 45,000 grains. The steeple of the Church of St. Martin in Landshut, Germany is said to be the tallest brick tower in the world at a height of 130.6 m (428.5 ft) and was constructed using an estimated 650,000 bricks.
It's about one-and-two-thirds times as heavy as a Human Brain
In other words, the weight of a Human Brain is 0.5990 times 34,700 grains.
The average weight of an adult human brain is between 20,800 grains. In humans and primates, sight and vision utilize about 30 different parts of the brain which together account for about half of the brain's size.
It's about half as heavy as a Cat
In other words, the weight of a Cat is 2 times 34,700 grains.
(Felis catus) (Domestic; healthy weight)
The average domestic cat should weigh about 70,000 grains. Cats are known for their righting reflex, which allows them to land on their feet and survive falls from heights of 1 m up to about 21 m.
It's about two times as heavy as a liter of Water
In other words, 34,700 grains is 2.2484590 times the weight of a liter of Water, and the weight of a liter of Water is 0.4447490 times that amount.
(fresh; 4° C / 39.2° F; maximum density)
Contrary to popular belief, 1 liter (0.0.264172052358148 gal) of water at 4° C / 39.2° F (its point of maximum density) weighs 15,432.790 grains rather than 1 kg exactly. The total volume of water on the planet Earth is about 13,590,000,000,000,000,000 (13.59 quntillion) L (3,590,000,000,000,000,000 gallons).
It's about two-fifths as heavy as a Gallon of Paint
In other words, the weight of a Gallon of Paint is 3 times 34,700 grains.
(excluding container; average weight)
A gallon of paint weighs about 80,000 grains. Every day, 10,000,000 L (3,000,000 gal) of paint are applied in the United States.
It's about one-third as heavy as a Bowling Ball
In other words, 34,700 grains is 0.330476190 times the weight of a Bowling Ball, and the weight of a Bowling Ball is 3.0259366 times that amount.
(most common selection among male bowlers)
With an allowable range of 77,000 grains, the most-preferred bowling ball weight among adult, male bowlers is 105,000 grains. Because regulation balls measure the same diameter irrespective of their weight, ball density varies by size and balls weighing less than about 77,161.79180 grains will float in water.
