Ah, the early 2000s. It was truly an era unlike any other. The first few years of the new millennium were marked by many a bad decisions: matchy-matchy velour jogging suits, lowrise pocketless jeans, blinged out T-Mobile Sidekicks, and so. many. sextapes.
While we wouldn’t want to go back (It was too confusing! Is Beyonce a solo artist or is Beyonce single-handedly carrying the weight of Destiny’s Child on her shoulders???), sometimes it’s fun to take a little stroll down memory lane. Here are some of your fave ’00 celebs and the pups that look like ’em.
1. Paris Hilton
They’re actually wearing the exact same amount of pink fabric despite their noticeable size difference.
2. Justin Guarini
Guarini might’ve been a runner up on American Idol, but he and this pup are tied for first place in the luscious locks department.
3. Britney Spears
TBH more people (and dogs) should try accessorizing with pythons.
One is a villain America loved to hate. The other is a doofy dingus. Both are golden goddesses.
5. Lindsay Lohan (+ Alison Pill)
The higher the fur, the closer to God.
6. Ryan Cabrera

7. Seth & Summer
What’s REALLY adorable is when these pups try their paw at the Spiderman rain kiss.
8. Carson Daly
Just two dudes with easygoing, natural smiles!
9. Vitamin C
Neither one of them is a natural redhead. Shhhh…
10. Newlyweds Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson
“HAHAHA I LOVE MY HUSBAND FROM 98°!”
11. Joe Millionaire
Joe’s money was fake, but his curly locks were au naturale. Strangely enough, this dog’s money is real, but his fur is permed.
12. William Hung
He bangs! …And HE bangs (barks)!
15. That One Dude from Sum 41
Both still have angsty LiveJournals too, but only the dog keeps his updated.
