Doesn't work for me

These people and dogs are allegedly the winners of an 'I Look Like My Dog' contest.

Am I the only cynic who doubts whether the humans and dogs had even met before the photo session?  There's something too neat about it all, as if human models were chosen to match dog breeds.  Of course, I further wonder whether the dogs and humans really are so similar - Photoshop allows subtle yet powerful changes.

That'd be absolutely fine for an ad campaign (which was the way the images were used), but at least to me, the (potential) lie that these are genuinely the dogs' owners diminishes any trust I might have had in the company, so I'm actually less likely to buy the advertised product than if I hadn't seen the adverts.

Not that I have a dog or eat dogfood.
