20 Dog Puns That Will Have You Howling

·2 min read

Sometimes words just aren't enough when it comes to accurately describing just how important dogs are to people. Dog owners often sleep with their dogs, wake up to them, spend the day with them, and come home to them.

Dogs are also notoriously funny. There are millions of videos, photos, memes, and movies dedicated to how funny dogs can be. My family dog growing up had a strange and hilarious hatred of bananas, so anytime anyone in the house would eat a banana in front of him, he would bark and growl, while wagging his tail of course. You could say they drove him bananas. (I'm getting ahead of myself.)

Dogs feature prominently in most people's favorite funny stories and jokes, which is why there are hundreds of puns and jokes about dogs. These dog puns might have you LOL-ing or rolling your eyes. Either way, they're an ode to the joy dogs bring their humans every day.
