Dog Owners Mimic Their Pooches' Expressions, And It's The Cutest Thing (Photos)

Let's face it, dogs are awesome.

If you've ever experienced the luxury of being able to call one of these furry creatures your best friend, you've lived a life worth living.

And you've probably also been told you look like your dog, too. This is a common statement made toward dog owners because, well, it can sometimes be true.

In a recent photo series we came across titled "The Dog People," German photographer Ines Opifanti asks dog owners to reenact their dogs' facial expressions.

The side-by-side photo collection makes for a great midday pick-me-up.

Check out the photos below for a closer look at owners impersonating their dogs!

If you've ever owned a dog, you've probably been told you look like it at one point or another.

Maybe it's because you spend so much time together!

In Ines Opifanti's ongoing photo series, "The Dog People," the photographer has dog owners pose with their dogs.

But as you can see, they aren't asked to strike just any old pose!

Opifanti asks the owners to recreate their dogs' facial expressions.

The results? Pure gold.

Say "cheese!"

Keep up with the series on Instagram.
