up until recently i had never thought that seals and dogs look so much alike. Even though these two creatures live in two completely different habitats and realities, they have so much in common together. I know that many of you would ask: But what do seals and dogs have in common? Allow me to tell you guys, a whole lot. According to the genetic link canines share a lot of similar characteristics with seals for example, mainly because the two are considered Caniformes (which literally means “dog-like”) and come from the same suborder of Carnivorans (unlike cats, which are Feliformes).
But even though they do have so much in common, why many dogs still hate the water? Why can’t they just be like they fellow look-alike dog-like seal friends? Or you are thinking that even though they have genetic links, they will still remain authentic in their preferences :P. Anywho you guys, I want to share with you 10 funny picture collages that compare dogs and seals. Only after you are done going through each and one of them you will understand why seals are called the puppies of the ocean.
