Dog owners do often resemble their dogs, strangely enough. We recently saw a perfect example of this. A young lady we know has a broad face with flattish features and distinctly downturned corners to her lips -- she's not caught smiling often, and she has a droll, almost lethargic tone of voice. She is also a bit pudgy. We ran into her at a horse show recently and met her dog for the first time -- a puggle with a classic pug face, pug expressions, and that plump pugly body. (If she has a cat, I'm sure it's a Persian!)
My husband is most closely bonded to our McNab stock dog. They're both natural athletes with the same play drive, and spend hours daily playing ball, running, and playing tug of war. They, too, have much in common.
As for me, though, I must be a chameleon, because I have three dogs of great variation -- a Papillon, a McNab, and a ginormous black Lab. I like to think I share qualities of each -- only the best qualities, of course -- not that my beloved pups would have any bad qualities!
