Have you ever seen people that look like their pets? I have had a few people at work comment that Waffles kind of looks like me. The main reason being that she has an auburn colored coat, and i have red hair. We also both have long narrow noses, and skinny, underdeveloped arms. (I like to think that i have ears that are much more proportional to my head though...) There are a few good examples out there, but other than maybe matching hair colors, it's hard to find a dog to be your doppleganger.
While i may not really look like my dog, it is becoming more and more apparent that we have similar personalities and living styles. It might be because i have raised her since she was a pup, but we definitely act alike.
We are both hating winter. We just have no tolerance for the cold. It's nice for running, but pretty much nothing else. Our daily walks have been shortened because we are both miserable, and salt burns the pups feet. I usually end up having to carry her home. We are waiting for summer! A 90 degree day SUCKS for running, but is awesome for everything else. We are anxiously awaiting the warmth. We both are picky about our food (Hey! We're classy gals that deserve the best!) and love our sleep. We radically sway from running/playing tirelessly for two hours straight, to napping on the couch all afternoon. We are super active and super lazy simultaneously. We also both get overwhelmed in social situations. Too many people/dogs make us uncomfortable, and i deal with it by drinking and saying awkward things, and she deals with it by snapping at unfamiliar bigger dogs that approach her. We're like two peas in a pod!
Hooray for running and watching TV after running - our two favorite activities!
Do you share any traits with your pets? Would you seek out a pet that matches your lifestyle?
