Pet monster Chubs

Updated information will be posted in the Instructions below.
It's a little pet monster for the 3d artist mag contest and it's supposed to be a decoration item.
Please let me know if this model can be printed or if the details are to small. I'll try to fix problems with the model.
I don't own a 3d printer so I'm not sure if everything is as it should be.

Thanks for explaining this to me, I'll try to upload a lowpoly version soon. As I've no personal experience of how a 3d printer works this kind of information is really helping me to understand it!
I'd like to throw in some observations. "Higher Resolution" in this instance should refer to a model having more polygons. Both of these models have about 337,000 faces, so they are only scaled wrt each other. That isn't necessary. All printers software can scale a model. Reducing the number of faces would help speed up the slice time, and since most printers aren't very high resolution the lower faces wouldn't be noticable in the 3d print. I'm glad you upped a version without the hole, since I like to print hollow objects and having a hole in the model makes that mroe difficult to achieve. I'd say both models 50mm tall one high res (300k polys) and low res (30k polys). But this can be done by anyone with meshlab so not really an issue.

Update 1: Orientation fixed.
Update 2: Chubs v2.1
As a result of the prints of Zarquon, mrtaylor and print3dXYZ and the feedback I've received so far I did the following changes:
-> no hole
-> higher resolution
-> about 110mm in hight (old one had 50mm)
-> exagerated details for better visibility
Update 3: Added new pictures.
Update 4: Chubs v2.2
-> Changed the spots on his head.
-> Now available as LowRes (50mm) and HiRes (110mm) version.
-> Updated the images.
Update 5: The LowRes Version is now also LowPoly ;)
Please let me know what you think, thanks!
