Dog Puns: The “Ultimutt” List for Dog Lovers

Have you ever noticed that pups and puns seem to go hand in paw?  Could it be that we dog lovers have our own breed of language? In celebration of National Dog Day, Happy-Go-Doodle Chloe and I decided it was time to put together an ulti-mutt list of punny dog puns and dog play on words.

How our pup-preciation for dog puns began

The other day, my husband mentioned to me that our Happy-Go-Doodle blog posts and social media included a fair share of dog puns. Like Chloe after a lone treat under a couch cushion, I dug through my own dog blog, sniffed out pet brands, and peeked into dog publications. Fur sure, wordplay and punny language had, well, gone to the dogs!

Modern Dog Magazine?  Their headline read “Pup-tacular Dog Finds.” Shopping? Check out “Pawty Box” or the “Furminator.” Pup yeah, even Google’s in on the dog word games with their article, Fetching the Latest in Dog Trends.

While I have no scientific evidence to explain why puns and pups go together, I’d venture to guess it’s simply because like humor, dogs bring smiles. Really, how better to describe a dog’s silly, goofy, happy, splooty personality than with a pun as pup-tacular as our pooches!?!

So, for pure doggo wordplay fun and happiness, Happy-Go-Doodle Chloe and I put our hands and paws to the keyboard and created our own mega list of pup puns and dog play on words. We hope our ulti-mutt guide brings a smile, a p’awww, or maybe even a grrrrroan.
