#260 People who look like their pets

“I moved in with a new roommate in the beginning of this school year and we decided to make our own list of AWESOME! things to hang up in our drab dorm room.  Some of our favorites are: Harmony, walking in the rain with rain boots on, a huge thunder storm, getting your AC fixed, and sandwiches cut into different shapes.  Next year we are getting in an apartment with another girl and we’re going to frame the poster!” – Kaitlin

  1. hahaha, awesome indeed! that is my favorite of all Awesome Posts so far…i often get a chuckle, when i walk in the street, and walk past someone who bears a strong resemblance with their dog….too funny! :D

  2. This makes me think of the beginning of 101 Dalmatians! When Pongo is looking for a girlfriend for himself and Roger, he keeps seeing all these wrong matches — and each dog looks like its owner :)

    Even though it’s been 15 years or more since I’ve seen that movie … and even though I had to Google the name of the guy … that was the very first thing that popped into my head when I read the title. Love it!

    BTW, Kaitlin, you and I could hang out and have a good ol’ time doodling with colored Sharpies. I have a slight obsession with them. Between the fine tip, extra fine tip, and chisel tip varieties, it’s safe to say I possess more than 100 of them. I love your idea for a poster of awesome!

    1. The picture is actually my roommate, but I helped too. I love writing with Sharpies, but I can only do it for so long before the smell is overwhelming!

    1. I have to tell you, idonthaveaname, your simple, dry humor cracks me up daily. I’m in an emotional, strange mood today and reading your post sent me into a laughing fit. I was picturing Bob Newhart or Steven Wright saying it. In your own unique way, you’re AWESOME!

  3. When we were young we had shiney golden hair and a soft silky coat,
    pearly white teeth and a love for “skinny-dipping”…
    now, we have tri-coloured hair with silver highlights, “yellow teeth”… are content to go for a river walk, beach combing and a for a ride in the canoe.
    One thing we always have is a love for music, to sing and feel “dancey” !
    She’s a Collie, Shepard and Coyote- I’m told we’re identical-pretty cool;)
    Happy Easter everyone:)

  4. I work in a veterinary hospital. All day long we see people who have a strong resemblance to their pets. Ill have to get some pics. Today we had a lady with 5 shih tzu’s. It was spot on. Lol

  5. While the post itself is great, I particularly like the captions of each of the photos when you hover over them.

    “they both are bald guys”


  6. wow! this is my firts time to visit here.
    i already feel awsome!!
    especially, the funny pictures make me more awsome!

  7. The real question – do you buy pets that already look like you? Or do you just start to look like your pets? Because I just bought an English Bulldog and he’s the last thing I want to look like.

  8. Thanks for another great article. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect manner of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I’m on the search for such information.
