These Dad-Doggie Duos Are Serious Family Goals

Happy Father's Day to all you doggie dads out there!

Fathers of humans aren't the only ones who need a little recognition. Doggie dads deserve a bit of lovin' too!

In honor of Father's Day, New York City-based photographer Chantal Adair, who created the The Dog Styler Instagram account, shot a photo series featuring pooches and beloved dads in matching outfits. The series, called "The Dog Styler's Father's Day" will make you fall completely in love with these dynamic duos.

The snapshots include dogs and their dads wearing anything from snazzy denim outfits to Hawaiian shirts. Adair, whose series was a two-month project, said that the pairs exhibited quirks that a typical father-child duo would have.

"It's always amazing seeing dog parents and their pups. Everyone has a special way with their dog," she said. Adding: "Some of the dog dads literally look like their pet."

Indeed, many of the pup parents involved in the series said that not only do they love their pooches unconditionally -- much like a parent does a human child -- but they also drew further similarities between themselves and "real" dads.

“I imagine being a dog dad is a lot like being a real dad. You provide food, water, shelter and love. You make corny jokes and embarrass them at the park in front of their friends," Joey Texeira, who's featured in the shoot, told The Huffington Post. "You clean up a lot of poop and develop an unbreakable bond. It's the best decision you could ever make!"

Adair told HuffPost that hopefully, through her series, people are able to see just how rewarding "dogfatherhood" truly is.
