Do You Look Like Your Pet?

Do Tell: Do You Think Your Pet Looks Like You?

Checking out my favorite websites the other day, I came across a cute slideshow on Petside where they've matched up celebs with their animal look-alikes.

I got a good chuckle from the post, and it got me thinking about the pet/human look-alike phenomenon, which was proven by researchers back in 2004 (at least in cases where humans owned purebred dogs). The old adage is true — there really are people who look like their pets, and sometimes the resemblance is uncanny!

I find this especially true for some of the contestants from Greatest American Dog. Don't you think Beth Joy and Bella Starlet, and even Ron and Tillman, look exactly alike?! But what about you — do you think you and your pet look alike?

My cat Jellison and I look alike in the way that ours faces always have an "annoyed" look on them.

My pup and I both have really long torsos and tiny little legs. Coloring-wise, we couldn't be more opposite!

Oliver rocks a harelip, his tongue is often hanging out, and he has buggy copper-colored eyes. I would have to say no. ;)

Totally! We have the same colored hair (dark brown), big brown eyes and big grin! He is a pomeranian, pretty petite for his size, as am I!

Definately. I own a longhair miniature dachshund and I am 5'11. We are both long and skinny! We both have brown hair with blonde highlights too. It's kind of scary! :-)
