Do you think it’s true that pets and their humans often look alike? We don’t know that this is always the case, but in a series of photographs, Gerrard Gethings has definitely made a case that there is often a clear resemblance. 

Sometimes the resemblance is in the hair or the eyes. Sometimes it’s just the overall way the two are sitting. Sometimes we can’t quite put our finger on why the humans and pets look alike; they just do.

Gethings in a British photographer, and he did a shoot where he posed humans and their dogs in similar positions to show just how much they look alike. See for yourself in the images below.

If you can’t get enough of these images and wish there were a whole game based on matching dogs with their humans, you’re in luck. Just such a game actually exists, and it’s called “Do You Look Like Your Dog?” These pictures and more are featured in the game, a total of 50 cards for players to have fun matching.

Do you have a dog? If so, do you think you look like your dog? Why do you think it is that humans sometimes resemble their pets?
