So how do I know that doesn't mean:

The puppy of my fat girlfriend?

:lmao:

 

Til, the subject of this sentence is the puppy being fat.

 

If you say, "The puppy of my fat girlfriend.." what? what happened to the puppy of your fat girlfriend? It's just the complete subject and the predicate is missing.

 

If you want to say "The puppy of my fat girlfriend is fat.", then you say it this way, "Ang itoy sa akong tambok nga uyab tambok."

 

This means that both your girlfriend and her puppy are fat.
