Willie Nelson calls for look-alike dogs in time for National Dog Day

National Dog Day is August 26, and Austin’s own Willie Nelson has joined in on the celebration with a four-legged Nelson look-alike contest on his official Facebook page.

UPDATE Wednesday: And on the day itself, Willie posted some of his favorites!

Thousands of fans responded by uploading photos of their dogs (and other pets) that either bear a close resemblance to the country singer, or are named after him.







The resemblances are striking.

Dogs aren’t the only animals named after Nelson – in June, the Fort Worth Zoo welcomed a pair of baby giraffes named Waylon and Willie, named after the great Waylon Jennings and, you guessed it, Willie Nelson.
