Intro to Lick-erature: Funny Parodies By a Happy Dog

Red goldendoodle dog with tongue hanging out of mouth and title Intro to Lick-erature

As students everywhere head back to school loaded down with books and required reading lists, Happy-Go-Doodle Chloe and I had a funny thought…  

What if we could swap those textbooks out for some cute dood lit?

So in the spirit of floppy-eared fun and slobbery silliness, we created a not-so-required reading list of funny parodies for our fictitious Intro to Lick-erature course at Dogs Love U. No essays. No critical thinking. Just funny parodies by a happy goldendoodle dog who loves to share a smile, a laugh, or a WOOF! And every story has a happy ending, of course!

4 Funny Book Parodies Every Student Should Find In Their Backpack

4. HAIR WARS: Return of the Brush

In a blog not so far, far, away (right here, actually), our young PAW-dawan, Obi-One-Cutie, is gifted in the ways of the fur. With gentle brushing and skillful scissoring, our puffy pawadan leaves a cloak of curls on the floor as a gift for her master.

May the fur be with you.

  3. SO cute!! Love these photos and story titles. I relate to these with my boys. Ha!

    1. Glad we could add a smile to your day! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I think Mr. N would enjoy being in an epic fantasy the best. Lots of adventures and naps in front of a fireplace afterwards!

    1. Awww…Mr. N you’d make a great main character in an epic book! Oh, the fantastic places you would go! And the naps you would take. Thank you for attending Dogs Love U’s Intro to Lick-erature class with us.

    1. Thank you! Sounds like is is a star of your family!

  8. This is about the funniest thing I have read in a long time! So clever and well-written! My dog’s book/movie would have to include Slobber as perhaps a main character since that really defines living with two mastiffs. Haha!

    1. Thanks so much! I love your Slobber concept! What a great image that would be!

  9. Thank you so much for helping me smile. I was actually laughing the pictures are so cute and the titles are PAWsitively clever I’d read any of those titles.

  12. Kat-Mandu is a good one! 😸

    1. Great one! We’ll add that to our Intro to Lick-erature summer reading list! Thank you!

  13. Such a cute post! I know my gang would be starring characters in Hair Wars too! MOL! And perhaps in Sleeping in Macon (rather than Sleepless in Seattle) 😉

    Perfect summer Lickerature for pups!!!

    1. Thanks! Happy we brought an extra smile to your day!

  15. I don’t know which book cover of yours I love more. I’m not sure which book Bernie and Lizzie would pair with. Maybe Fellowship of the Ring. They love it when I feed them breakfast, and then Daddy accidentally feeds them second breakfast.

    1. That made me laugh and Chloe WOOF! We do the same thing and Chloe loves getting a second meal out of the deal! Thanks for adding a great read to our Intro to Lick-erature class at Dogs love U!

  16. Hair wars – I just love that one! This is such a great and fun post – I’ve marked it to come back to in my “fun things to lift your spirits” tab! Thanks for the smiles!

    1. Awww…thanks so much! Your comment made OUR day! So happy we could share a smile with you!

  17. These are hilarious! I love the Hairy Slobber one the best… so creative! 🙂

    1. Awwww…thanks, Debbie!

  18. Love this. These are the types of books I would love to read. Our girls would have a book titled “Un-fur-gettable!”

    1. “Un-fur-gettable!” I love that. It would be a must read for us! Thanks for joining in on the fun!

  19. HAHA, I love your titles. What book could Cookie be the main character in? I don’t know but it would have to involve kissing a frog. LOL

    1. Too cute! Any title with the words “Cookie” and “frog” would get my attention! Thanks for joining in on the fun!

  20. Those are all great titles and should be on everyone’s reading list! My dog Theo would probably like Catch 22 Tennis Balls.

    1. Love it! Catch 22 Tennis Balls would be a hit at our house too! Sounds like Theo and Happy-Go-Doodle Chloe have a lot in common. Thanks for joining in on our Intro to Lick-erature fun!

  21. OMD, this is SO clever I love it! The PAWS one cracks me up, you really got the cover down pat on that one! I think mine would be called The Abominable Snow Dog; A Wet & Sloppy Disaster! LOL!!
    Love & Biscuits,
    Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

    1. Thanks, Cathy! Happy-Go-Doodle Chloe and I had such fun making these parodies. When we’re in the middle of creating something, we just go with the flow and see where it leads us! Love your title and can imagine Icy starring in that adventure! Thanks so much for stopping by for a little Intro to Lick-erature fun!Tail wags and take care.

  22. Love this Intro to lick-erature list- so funny. We made Star Paws- the Pug Awakens and Secret Life of Pug videos and Game of Bones and other memes. You have inspired me as such fun.

    1. Happy you stopped by for our Dogs Love U adventures. Your memes sound so cute! We’ll definitely stop by your blog and check them out. Thank you!

  23. LOVE the Hair Wars photo. That is too good. Made me smile for sure! Thanks for the fun post!

    1. Happy we could add an extra smile to your day!

  24. What a fun post, I love it! For my dogs, I think April would be in a book/movie called April Fools. She looks sweet and innocent, but is quite the plotter/instigator. J.R. is a dog that loves to dance, and lives for attention, so a dance movie, possibly Saturday Night Fever spinoff

  25. HA! So funny and clever! I’m a personal fan of the Hair Wars! It’s a battle in my home (but for me the human). What awesome photos to go along with the books 🙂

    1. Thanks! I’m glad it brought a smile!

  26. The print-outs are such a nice touch! I’ll use them in some scrap-booking projects for my pets’ photos. Thanks for a blog that brightens my day effortlessly, without having drama or controversy. These days, we need to refreshment of visiting a blog that’s simply fun and warm-hearted!

    1. Awww…thank you! We’re happy to know that our stories brightened your day. That’s what Happy-Go-Doodle is all about. Also, scrapbooking is a great use for the printables. Enjoy!

  27. MOL! All kiddos would get A++ in their studies if those were their text books ! Oh, I’ve been on the receiving end of one of those slobbers from my Basset minion, Bessie. I think she and H G Doodle are in cahoots! Mom says the Hair Wars come to our house daily! Tee hee hee!

    1. Yes, moms would never hear “my dog ate my report card” if all schools were Dogs Love U schools!
