'The Office' Characters As Dog Breeds

'The Office' Characters As Dog Breeds

"Business is a doggie dog world. And I am a shark, who eats doggie dogs." -Michael Scott

My two favorite things in this world are "The Office" and dogs. So, what better to do than write an article combining them!

1. Michael Scott: Golden Retriever

Just as Michael Scott might be the first thing you think of when you think of "The Office," the golden retriever is what you think of when you think of a dog. Both Michael and golden retrievers are loyal to their friends, great with kids, smart but can sometimes act sort of stupid, and most of all loving. Golden retrievers do not make good guard dogs because they are friendly and loving to everyone, even strangers, and Michael is the same way.

2. Dwight Schrute: Wolf dog

Dwight is definitely the most unique character on "The Office," so I had to choose the most unique dog I could find. As it worked out, the wolf dog is actually incredibly similar to Dwight. Like Dwight, the wolf dog tends to be aggressive. They're both very stubborn with a "what's in it for me?" attitude. However, they do have a sweet side and might be a little sensitive-- but they try not to let that show.

Jim Halpert: Husky

This is the best legal photo I could find of a husky looking into the camera like Jim. Jim and huskies get along well with pretty much anybody. They're athletic and independent, yet also like companionship. They both require physical and mental activity and are very clever. Like Jim, the "Siberian Husky is inclined to use his intelligence in clever ways that suit his own purposes." Jim's carefully thought out pranks can be compared to the husky's elaborate attempts at escaping!

Pam B. Halpert: Border Collie

Like our favorite receptionist-turned-office-administrator, the border collie may be shy at first. However, once they are out of their shell they both are great at herding! Pam is excellent at rallying everyone behind a cause just like a border collie is great for gathering all the animals together!

Phyllis Vance: Old English Sheepdog

Just like Phyllis always seems a bit sad, so does the old English sheepdog. However, like Pam and border collies, the old English sheepdog is great at herding and is maternal just like Phyllis.

Ryan Howard: Jack Russell Terrier

Arguably the most accurate match up, Ryan and the jack russell are eerily similar. Both are small but think they're all that. Jack russells consider themselves to be the same size as a great dane, and although they do not match in stature, they do match in the size of their ego. When Ryan worked for corporate he thought he was all that, but really he's still just the fire guy.

Kelly Kapoor: Pomeranian

They think they're all that and yap if they don't get their way.

Andy Bernard: Beagle

...Ok so I don't really have an explanation for this one... All I'm saying is that if the 'nard dog was an actual dog I think it'd be a beagle.

Erin Hannon: Dachshund

Dachshunds and Erin Hannon are both cute and energetic!

Kevin Malone: Pug

Pugs and Kevin both have certain charms. You either love or hate them. But if you feed them, then they'll be your loyal companions.

Stanley Hudson: Bassett Hound

Basset Hounds always look like they don't give a crap. Neither does Stanley.I know there were a bunch of characters I missed, but maybe you'll see them in another article!

Board Games Are More Important Than You Think They Are

They've become a defining part of my family.


Remember when you were a kid and you'd have a family game night? Or your friends would come over and you'd open the game cabinet and play at least three different games together?

Maybe it's just me, but those are some of my best memories from my childhood. My family loves games, board games, and electronic games.

Of course, as I got older, gaming consoles like PlayStation and Wii became more and more popular. That meant that the game cabinet was opened less and less, collecting dust.

Thankfully, I live in New Jersey near the shore and Hurricane Sandy left my family with no power for five days. Sure, it was scary not having power and walking around my neighborhood seeing fallen trees or roof shingles, but we were inland enough to not have had any flood water damage.

No power also meant no PlayStation or Wii games. The gaming cabinet was opened again, this time with vigor. Now, four years later, and I still think about sitting in the dark with a flashlight playing Scrabble with my family.

That was also the week I learned how to play Yahtzee and dominated my dad in every game. My sister constantly was looking for someone to play her to Battleship. We exhausted Rummikub.

The game was already a family favorite, and that's including extended family. Family barbeques had been ending with late night games of Rummikub for at least a year by the time Sandy hit.

We were ready to strategize and crunch numbers, but after day three, we never wanted to a number ever again.

This semester, there's been a surge of board game love again in my family. My sister bought Jenga, which we are currently trying to exhaust ourselves with. My favorite board game also had a comeback: Life.

I loved this game so much that I had the SpongeBob version as a kid. I would play it with my best friend, just the two of us, playing game after game of Bikini Bottom themed Life. Now, I have a car full of "kids" that I've started to make pets in my head. I can handle having five pretend dogs, but not five pretend kids.

I don't know what it is about board games, but my family has always had an affinity for them. We've gone through our cycles of playing video games and card games, but we always come back to the classics. Maybe it's more a defining part of my family than I originally thought.
