Father's Day is coming up this Sunday, and while the holiday tends to focus on dudes who father kids of the human variety, we can't forget all the doggy dads out there, too. They're the early-morning walkers, poop picker-uppers and truly the unsung heroes of the modern world.
Photographer Chantal Adair (aka the mastermind behind The Dog Styler) understands this simple fact. That's why Adair decided to turn the spotlight on dog dads this year by having them dress up to match their furry sons and daughters. As Chantal tells Elite Daily,
I took theses photos because I enjoy making people laugh and the juxtaposition of dogs in human clothes strikes a chord in people that explores our evolutionary bond with these wonderful animals... As a photographer and dog lover, it's a dream come true!
Well, the end result is almost too good to be true for both dog and dad bod lovers alike. Here are 11 of the cutest daddy-doggy pairs around and the life lessons they have to teach us.
It's important to teach your kids how to look fly AF.
Because being this classy takes effort.
When it comes to style, you have to own it.
But don't forget to relax every once in a while with a glass of wine.
Learn a few recipes and you'll cook your way into anyone's heart.
Because there's more to life than just staying late at the office.
Like being a good loser and a good winner.
Sometimes, you just have to let your hair down.
And wear that Hawaiian shirt like no one's watching.
You just have to be you, whether you're a beer man...
Or an ice cream kind of boy. It's what's in your heart that matters.
