The age old saying is that over time, dog owners begin to resemble their pets. Some cliches are clearly true! Dogs and their caretakers often seem to meld into the same being. The celebrity set is not immune to the phenomenon of dog morphing.
Such a mystery, but it’s science to the rescue! Sadahiko Nakajima of Kwansei Gakuin University provided subjects a controlled game of ‘match up’ by showing them photographs of people and dogs. The photographs were paired up with those that most resembled each other. Results suggest that people and their pets do look alike. According to Nakajima, it could be that people gravitate toward things that are familiar to them. I think Adam and his dog would be really interested to know this while they stare at each other in the mirror.
