In 1972, Elizabeth Taylor made history. Not for her legendary acting roles or humanitarian work, but for her iconic photo with her dog. The British Vogue photo features Taylor sporting a big gray wig to match her Shih Tzu’s hairdo, which has led to many online noticing their own hair-don’ts.

The far away stare, the serious expression, it all built up to the perfect storm for a viral trend. Immediately people started posting their own pet pictures to show the family resemblance.

Many people realized that they didn’t even need a big wig to show that they looked just like their furry friends. Others found a new aspiration to achieve, hoping one day they could look as adorably cute as their pets!
