Or so these guys think. :rolleyes: Considering I've owned 7 different breeds in my lifetime, I'd love to know which one I'm supposed to look like. :D


SCIENTISTS have proved it is possible to match a person to their dog just by their appearance.
And the study suggests a possible reason - people are drawn to pets with similar physical attributes.

Men and women shown pictures of dog owners and asked to guess whether they had a labrador, poodle or staffordshire bull terrier fared almost twice as well as would be expected by chance.
Researchers at Britain's Bath Spa University first set out to see if dogs and their masters had similar personalities.
Questionnaires filled in by owners of labradors, poodles and bull terriers found little difference in their traits and habits.
Researchers then asked a group who didn't own dogs to look at pictures of dog owners and guess which of the three breeds they had. Their answers weren't perfect but they were correct up to 60 per cent of the time, the British Psychological Society's annual conference heard.

Dr Lance Workman said there might be a simple logic behind it.
"If you are of a robust build, you probably get a robust-built dog because you'd want to get lots of exercise," he said. "If you are slight, you might be more likely to have a poodle because you think it needs less exercise."
But he warned it was quite superficial and didn't translate to personality.

My guess is you look like your pug Garth and act like a Chihuahua
Yeah but which Chihuahua? I've had 6 or 7 of them. :rolleyes:

Hey Di, you know how to spell Chihuahua. I'm impressed! :D

Garth

If we saw a picture of you then perhaps we could make a judgement ?
Here Col, you & Di make your judgement. I haven't changed that much in the last couple of years. :rolleyes:

I've had an Italian Greyhound, pit bull, St. Bernard, several Cocker Spaniels, German Shepherd, Great Danes, Golden Retriever, and Labs. Can you figure out what I look like based on that? LMBO!

Same here. My record goes:

Silky Terrier (1)
Chihuahuas (7)
Pugs (6)
King Charles Spaniels (2)
Shih-Tzus (2)
Labrador (1)
GSD (1)


I must be REALLY confused! :D
