We love our dogs, but how much do our personalities match theirs?
Everyone loves you for your great wit and easygoing nature. You're independent -- sometimes stubborn -- sure, but you're an extrovert who enjoys the company of family and friends, most especially when you're all in the great outdoors.
Peace, love and cuddling: That's gentle you to your core. When you have the choice between relaxing and exercising, you, couch potato, will pick the former every time. But if your friends are up for action, you are too: You're just that mellow and happy to go with the flow.
OK, sassy, what can we tell you that you don't already know? While you can be a bit, shall we say, moody, you are devoted to those you love. Sure, you're a bit shy with strangers, but once someone is in, you're a loyal best friend.
With an impressive resume, you are certainly smart and career minded, but there's much more to you than that. Family matters most, though your focused devotion can read as overly suspicious of people you don't know.
Well, aren't you the popular one! It's easy to see why: You're so friendly and loyal to those you care about, the kind who will spontaneously show up with a gift, just because. You can be a bit boisterous if you don't get ample opportunities to exercise that inner athlete.
To you, City Mouse doesn't know what he's missing. You're most at peace in wide, open spaces, but you don't want to live in the country alone. Though you tend to keep your feelings to yourself, your loved ones mean everything, something you prefer to show with loyalty rather than more outward displays of affection.
When Iggy Pop sang "Lust for Life," he sang it for you. You just love this place called Earth, whether you're swimming its waters or running its dirt, and you're happy to have pretty much anyone by your side. Though you can be high maintenance, you're also highly smart and a great student.
Yeah, you're one of those Type-A personalities, but apply it to a job and you, oh-so confident you, are definitely getting it done. You get a bit cranky if you're static for too long, which is why you're an independent leader who people will follow thanks to your loyalty and devotion to the task at hand.
You are always up for an adventure and fun times with your many friends. You do have a bit of a mischievous streak than can get you into trouble, especially as your sense of independence (some might call it obstinance) can lead you astray. So, you just have to keep busy, and when you're on the right task, your co-workers and family are always impressed.
Move over, Spuds MacKenzie: You are the original life of the party. Your huge personality can read as overly chatty, so you feed that need to be extroverted with a social life to match. And that's never a problem, as the only thing you tend to shy away from is breaking a sweat.
