Do you Look Like your Bird Dog?
Last week, fellow QF co-worker Rehan Nana sent me the link to a website called Doggelganger. Are you familiar with the term “doppelganger?” In short, the word’s definition is “a look-alike.” Consequently, the dog version of the definition would be a dog that looks like its human counterpart.
The creative folks behind the Doggelganger website instruct you to upload a photo of yourself, which is then scanned for your unique features, followed by a run through their database of homeless dogs available for adoption “matching up” to your physical appearance. The website is promoted as “Human to Canine Software Pairing.” Complete with fun graphics and a voiceover fitting “Final Fantasy,” Doggelganger is an entertaining two-minute brain break.
There was a time when folks thought I looked like Mike Myers’ doppelganger, but I’ve never been mistaken for my German shorthaired pointer. Perhaps that’s because Doggelganger says I look more like a beagle. While I’ve heard of beagles being used to hunt pheasants before, I don’t think I’m going to be making a switch any time soon.
What about you, does your favorite breed of bird dog match up as your Doggelganger?
