Gerrard Gethings, a well-known animal photographer, was commissioned by Laurence King Publishing to photograph 25 pairs of identical-looking humans and their dogs for a game called “Do You Look Like Your Dog?” In October 2020, Gethings also released the pairs as a book, as well.

They then turned it into a game called “Do You Look Like Your Dog?”
If you don’t have the best memory, we’ve rounded up some easy tips and tricks to help you slay this game.
In October 2020, Gethings converted the photos from the game into a book, titled “Do You Look Like Your Dog? The Book: Dogs and their Humans.“
It’s a memory game in which players must match up owners and their dogs.
You can see what the hype is all about here.
It comes with 50 cards — 25 pairs of dogs and their human counterparts.
These two are clearly not messing around.
Gethings has a knack for matching up dogs and their humans in subtle ways…
They both are rocking pigtails.
Like this man wearing a white tank to match his dog’s white stomach, and winking so it looks like he only has one eye, like his furry friend.
The best kind of winky face.
The way hair is styled also clearly evokes similarities.
Though their style isn’t as epic as this groomer, who literally turns dogs into fluff balls.
Gethings wasn’t always involved in pet photography. In the beginning of his career, he was actually interested in painting.
Two scruffy little guys.
He made the switch to animal photography back in 2008 … after getting a puppy.
According to Gethings’ bio, he brought home a 7-week-old border terrier named Baxter, which is when he discovered his true calling – animal photography.
“I don’t want to create images of animals that are patronising. My subjects are complex and characterful creatures, full of pathos, humour, and unpredictability. I want them to appear epic,” said Gethings.
Coincidentally, both this owner and his dog have two different coloured eyes.
“For me, a domestic pet is no less beautiful or majestic than a wild animal,” he said.
“Familiarity often makes us forget this, but when you get up-close and capture every soulful detail in the eyes of a dog, cat or horse, then you start to remember where it came from,” Gethings continued.
He has five distinct collections on his site — Bee, Feather, Fur, Hoof, and Scale.
They’re pretty self-explanatory – bees, birds, dogs and cats, horses, or reptiles and fish.
But if you’re not in the market for new artwork — this game will definitely provide some solid entertainment.
