You Know What Is Fun? This.

June 10, 2011

Does this mutt look like me?

My friend Ronna once told me that if I were a dog, I’d be one of those stiff-legged red-haired maniac terriers that I love to hug so much: an Airedale.

I always thought I’d be a Husky, because people are always telling me that I have eyes like a Husky.

Now, there is no mystery. Now, it is science. A strange site in New Zealand, Doggelganger, assesses your facial features, and to the soundtrack of ghostly futuristic music, will match you with a dog in need, who is your doppelganger, from their database.


If you choose to do so, you can learn more about the dog. And if you want, you can donate money. It’s sponsored by Pedigree and it’s largely a marketing campaign, but I don’t care, it’s really fun, and it raises awareness about dogs in need.

It’s a delightful way to spend 10 minutes. I got Elliot, a mutt who is supposed to be a 65% match for me. I like it most when they focus on an eye, and then click through a thousand styles of dog eye, and then nose, etc. Lots of fun.

Try it!
