Dog Days of Summer

Here in South Carolina we are definitely in the dog days of summer. It's warm for sure, but not as hot as you'd think it would be in the midst of global warming. How about where you live? Those reading this in the Southern Hemisphere might be longing for some warm summer days.

Over lunch this past Sunday someone mentioned having seen a man who looked remarkably like his Saint Bernard. It struck me as funny, especially since someone recently commented on the pictures on my old dog/owner look-alikes page (back in the days before I had my blog). Have you ever noticed how many people end up with dogs that resemble them?

Here are some pictures from my files of children who look remarkably like their family dog. I suspect that the photographers did a lot of staging for these pictures, but they're cute nonetheless.

Hope that those of you in this hemisphere have a nice summer weekend, and happy dog and people watching!

Did you know that in 1850, the first all white Dalmatian dog was spotted?

    I love the pix! So cute! I saw the other Dog-Owner look-alikes, and those were also very funny. Yes, I’m sure they had to do a lot of staging for some, especially the one with the black eye.

    I’m adding this comment for Dawn who forwarded me the picture below of her nephew. She said, “So I guess it’s true….”
