'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!

9 Eligible Princes You Need To Know About Now That Prince Harry Is Off The Market

You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting

Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.
