Theme Thursday = Pets

Have you ever noticed that some people look
like their dog? Did you know that studies show that
it actually happens more with people who buy
purebreds? That is because people making a
serious, expensive purchase like that take
time to shop and research the dog and most
times without realizing it, they are drawn to
dogs that resemble themselves!
Muts on the other hand, are usually bought
spur of the moment...it's love at first sight
and brought home from a kennel or pound
without as much thought as to the type.
OK...so it's time to 'fess up! If you own
a pure bred dog, do you resemble it?

  1. Those are hilarious! We had a chocolate lab. I don't think we resembled him, but you never know!

  3. I don't have a purebred dog, so I can't look like it, but that said, those pictures are absolutely stinkin' hilarious! Love, love, love them!

    Reminds me a little of those commercials they had on tv with people and food that looked alike...maybe it was a cholesterol medication they were advertising. It was some kind of medication.

  6. Birdie and I share so much gray...and it started appearing at the exact same time. Fortunate for me, I color over it :) Wonder if she would be down with some doggie hair dye? I once had a date in college that insisted we looked just alike. Was that a compliment? It was a first and only date. He was a tough one to read and he told me that I should have ironed my khakis. That was the deal breaker.

    Wow, thank's for letting me stop and ramble :)

  7. Some of those are really funny! My cat, Orson, doesn't really resemble me... except maybe in attitude.

  8. Solar ~ you should have ironed your khakis? Oh my. He's probably still single. ha.

  14. WOW, I'm not sure I could pick a winner out of these pictures. The similarities are very uncanny. I don't have a dog now, but those I have had I never resembled. Nor do I look like the two cats and two guinea pigs we have now. Thank goodness.

  27. This is too funny. I know that people have often said that my personality and that of my golden retriever are very similar. I wonder if we look alike too.
