It’s Not Unusual for Pet & Parent to Favor Each Other
Psychologist Sadahiko Nakajima has studied the resemblance between dogs and their people, with his findings offering plenty of evidence to support the idea that pets and parents can look alike. But why is this?
As Nakajima reported to The Huffington Post, the “mere exposure effect” could play a big part in the adoption of animals, meaning people might choose a dog because of perceived facial similarities between person and animal.
Does your dog wear the same silly grin as you? Do you and your cat have the same eyes? It could very well be these similarities that drew you to your pet in the first place. Now, put those adorable twinsie looks up for all to see by entering the Pet Doppelganger Contest for your chance at $1,000. That’s a lot of matching outfits for you and your buddy!
The deadline for contest submissions is Friday, December 17, 2021. The deadline for voting is December 17, 2021. Winners will be notified on January 3, 2022.
Good luck to all the purrfect pairs out there!
