Since he walks, talks and is generally more rational than any other character on the show, it's easy to forget that Brian from 'Family Guy' is a family pet. But as this side-by-side comparison of Brian and a real-life pooch reminds us, he is, in fact, just a dog.

This living, breathing pooch has Brian's white fur and black nose, and although he doesn't completely mirror the character's look, we think he's a pretty close facsimile.

Of course, we doubt this dog is a struggling writer with a drinking problem, and he probably doesn't have Brian's unremitting sense of self-righteousness. But we're willing to bet they have at least one thing in common -- a hatred of vacuum cleaners.
