We all saw this at the SB Nation office and now you do too. It can’t be unseen.

Ellie Hall of Buzzfeed stumbled across this perfectly human-faced dog, and I promise you it’s not Photoshopped. It’s just a kind-eyed dog, living its life on the porch and perhaps selling some insurance.
Immediately people began to see whatever person they wanted to inside the dog.
I think it looks like someone else closer than Jake Gyllenhaal, but I can’t figure it out pic.twitter.com/bSv34JcWwy

It’s a labradoodle thing.
Understanding the human-faced dog is a lesson in the breed itself. Over the years we’ve seen several examples of dogs with human faces, and the vast majority are labradoodles. It comes down to the eyes, which tend to be more human-esque than any other breed.
So it leaves us with stuff like this.
Here’s to human-looking labradoodles. May we remember your contributions to the world — but only long enough that we get freaked out again in the future.
