50 Dog Puns: The “Ultimutt” List To Make You Smile (Or Grrrroan)

Nothing could paw-sibly be cuter than dogs unless it’s cute dog puns! In fact, we’re pretty sure that even our dogs would be sad (maybe even “mellon collie” 😉) without some dog puns, jokes, and dog wordplay to brighten up the day.

Since we dog lovers have our own breed of language, Happy-Go-Doodle Chloe and I decided to put together an ulti-mutt list of punny dog puns, puppy puns, and dog play on words.  

50 Dog Puns: The “Ultimutt” List for Dog Lovers

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.

A big “pup-preciation” for dog puns and word play

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 is in on the dog word games with their article, Fetching the Latest in Dog Trends.

And our own blog posts? We have quite a pack of puns, memes, and feel-good blog humor including these posts:  

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.
