Do people look like their dogs?


My blogging friend Mira asked whether characters resemble their authors. I don't know the answer, but I do believe dogs resemble their owners. Why? I think that people tend to choose pets that somehow look friendly or familiar, and unconsciously choose ones that resemble their own face in the mirror. Just my totally unscientific opinion, here.

For example, here are me and Teddy. Not that similar in hairiness, but we're both pretty pale and there's something about the eyes...

I wonder if that's true for cat owners. :)


Hi Christine! Your blog looks great. I'm going to take the Jane Austen quiz now.

I'm Elinor Dashwood, too! I always struggle with these quizzes because most of the time, the answers I would choose are not there.

I agree, Pam. As someone who used to design questionnaires for a living, I find it very frustrating.
