What Does This Dog Look Like?
My sister-in-law’s Facebook post seemed uncontroversial: “Meet Gryffin, aka Finn, the newest member of our family. We had to tie in our favorite things—Harry Potter and Star Wars.”
After seeing the photos of Finn with the post, we all oohed and aahed and said those highly intellectual things one says in such situations: “Oh my, just LOOK at that face!” and “He’s so adorable!” Everybody agreed that he is a lovely little dog and that we are very lucky that we will get to meet him later in July when we vacation together.
Then, the disagreements began. There was conflict about what kind of animal he most resembled. Some of us saw fox in this little dog’s face, some saw a racoon, and others felt strongly that Finn was clearly channeling the face of a red panda. When we reported our controversy to my sister-in-law, she said that those are the same three animals that people repeatedly say he looks like. The controversy clearly extends beyond our household.
