Capaz told BuzzFeed News her personal favorite is her kindred spirit pup, a gray French bulldog named Bowie.

The personalities are pretty arbitrary, Clark admits, but he does enjoy watching them every day and being reminded of actual people and their caricatures.

Clark has not yet told any of the dogs' owners about this little venture, but they of course will soon find out.

If you are an owner of any of these featured doggos, please comment below and confirm, debunk, or add to any of the listed personality traits. It's important. It's journalism.
