Photoshop Fun: The Casts of ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Downton Abbey’ as Dogs
Ever wondered what the casts of Mad Men and Downton Abbey would be if they were dogs? Now we know!
Have you ever wondered what the casts of shows like Mad Men and Downton Abbey would be—if they were dogs? I can’t say that I have, but now that I’ve found out, it seems impossible that I would ever NOT want to know. Because it’s HILARIOUS.
1. Don Draper: Vizsla
According to Dogster, Vizslas are attractive, active, and cunning; they have a strong survival instinct, but they get bored with repetitive exercises and they ignore commands if they find something they think is more interesting. Hello, Don Draper!
2. Betty Francis, formerly Draper: Pomeranian
In the words of Dogster, “Unambitious, yet somewhat put-upon. Becomes crazed if ignored.” Sounds about right for Betty.
3. Joan Harris, formerly Holloway: Australian Shepherd
Apparently these beautiful pups can also become quite destructive if their energy isn’t directed in a positive way. That’s all well and good, but really, I’m still trying to get over the idea of an Australian Shepherd wearing earrings.
4. Peggy Olson: Beagle
Beagles are loyal with excellent tracking instincts, just like Peggy. They’re bred for the long chase, but because of their single-mindedness, they can be hard to train. This, however, is not necessarily a bad thing.
Are these spot-on, or are these spot-on? I don’t know about you, Bettys, but I’m currently laughing my head off. Let’s examine the Dogs of Downton next!
1. Robert, Earl of Grantham: English Bulldog
Says Dogster, bulldogs are “generally docile but sometimes willful,” and that their “aggression has been bred out.” Furthermore, “although they once had higher aspirations, they’re now content to snooze on the couch all day.” Apparently this is what a life of comfort does to you.
2. Lady Mary Crawley: Poodle
Perfect. PERFECT! Poodles are easily bored and therefore love to make trouble. Their haughty demeanor is the result of centuries of breeding and/or inbreeding. Hmmm…
3. Mr. Bates: Basset Hound
4. The Dowager Countess of Grantham: Persian Cat
There is NO way a dog would EVER be able to be haughty enough to be the Dowager Countess. She always gets what she wants, and she doesn’t give a fig for what you think about her. Go, Dowager Countess! Go!
