In some languages, seals are referred to as “sea-dogs,” although they don’t have a lot in common. We never knew where this term came from, but looking at this costume, we’re starting to realize dogs and seals are a lot more similar than we thought. This dog actually looks a lot like a seal, doesn’t he?
There are several kinds of marine mammals, from the elephant seal to the sea lion and the walrus. What they all have in common – which they also share with dogs – are their adorable whiskers and their big, round eyes. Until we saw this costume, we never realized dogs and seals had such similar facial features.
