Do you and your dog match?
My husband has a lookalike brother, but alas, not a lookalike dog

Houston Pet Talk Magazine has recently announced one of my favorite contests—the human-pet lookalike. From June 1 to June 10, you can submit pictures for the chance to win cash. This contest includes pets of all kinds, but naturally my favorite are the dog-human couples.

It is always so fun to see those pairs who actually live up to the saying that people and their pets start to look alike. It’s especially fun to see how people’s hair can resemble the fur of their dog—the red-headed girl and her Irish Setter, the man with dreads and his Puli, the boy with glossy black hair and his Rottweiler, and the Poodle who is with the grey-haired woman with a perm. Check out these amazing photos of matched sets.
Do you and your dog look like you were separated at birth? If so, what makes you look so similar?
