Buster's Dog-Human Beard Look-Alike Contest

Hey, it's Sephie, the perceptive observer of male vanity at the keyboard...I was wondering if anyone else was noticing similarities between bearded dogs and bearded people. And are these resemblances meaningful?

I submit, for your consideration, one such coincidence:

Exhibit A: Buster the Alleged Wonderdog. Venture Capitalist. Conservative Consumer of Dog Toys and Treats. Definitely not a revolutionary.

Exhibit B: Karl Marx. German Economic Philosopher. Author of Das Kapital and co-author of the Communist Manifesto. Definite revolutionary.

Are there any other dog-human look-alikes out there? I'd like to know!

Very good. Ma says do you remember the post Oscar did on his lookalikes (including Einstein)

Love ya lots,

Habca & Miriam said...

Oh yes, definitely. Habca's moustache looks exactly like the one of a famous singer from Cologne, Germany. I'll tray and find a picture for you.
Love from Berlin,

Crikey, Buster is far better looking than Karl Marx.

Very perceptive of you, sweet girl! Personally, I've always thought Karl Marx looked a little abnormally hairy and part animal. As much as I like Karl's beard, I envy Buster's even more!

In case you guys didn't know, I'm hosting a beard growing contest - it started a little over a month ago. You just measure your beard now, and then again on Jan 1. There are 2 prizes ~ 1 for the beard that has had the greatest growth during the contest, and 1 for the overall longest beard. Are you or Buster interested in entering?

Goober love,

Ume said...

I know of one case in particular. It is of an old man and his bull dog. It was hard to tell who was who! Sorry I don't have any photos.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
