Do You Look Like Your Dog? The Experiment

Did you know that strangers can match a picture of a person to a picture of their dog 80% of the time?

Amazing isn’t it?

Do you look like your dog?

Does Ruby look like her person? Or does her person look like Ruby?

But what’s really amazing is that even when the pictures show only the eyes of the dog and their person, the experiment’s subjects guess correctly 75% of the time.

I didn’t believe it. So I asked you to send me pictures of yourself and your dog so I could do my own experiment.

Now I need your help one more time.

Take a look at our pictures below. Let me know in the comments which letter person matches which dog. If the pictures are too small for you, click on them. To make them even larger, click on the image again.

I’ll keep the experiment open for a week. Please share on Twitter and Facebook so we can get a few more random people guessing.

Next week, I’ll send a $20 Amazon gift card to the person who makes the most correct guesses. If there’s a tie, I’ll choose the winner at random from all the highest correct guesses.

Sound like fun?

Then let’s get started. Share your matches in the comments.
