So whether you’re looking for a little cuteness overload to brighten your day or you’re searching for inspiration for your own dog’s Instagram page or doggie photo caption, we’ve written a “mutt-iculous” list of puns, captions, and cute sayings that’ll make you say “p’awww.”

And at the end of this article, you’ll find more of what you’re searching for: lists of doggo lingo and some inspiration to help you come up with the perfect punny message or add more smiles to your day.

Why so much dog pun and comedy cuteness?

Well, I was thinking back to a time when pups and puns or canines and comedy didn’t go together. All joking aside, I couldn’t “retriever” one time from my memory. I think you could say that our dogs are the “Carol Burnett Scarlett O’Hara curtain dress comedy scene” of our time. Dogs (and all the wholesome camaraderie that they inspire through doggy memes, Instagram posts, and photo captions) are ridiculously silly, good-natured, and wholesome happiness…and they are deeply woven into the “fur-abric” of our dog-loving lives.

So, without further “a-doodle”…

…here’s our latest mixture of cute dog puns, clever dog sayings, doggo lingo, and funny dog memes for dog lovers. Some are written from Happy-Go-Doodle Chloe’s point of view (doggo lingo) and some from her hooman’s pov. (Let’s coin a new phrase: “doggo mommo lingo.”) And, for even more dog wordplay, check out our companion article: The Ulti-mutt List of Dog Puns to Make You Smile (or Grrroan).
