Pun Dog is a three-panel image macro series featuring photographs of an Alaskan Klee Kai dog with animal-themed puns and anticlimactic punchlines, in a similar vein to the advice animal characters Bad Joke Eel and Lame Pun Coon.


The photographs of the dog playing with a stuffed toy was submitted by Redditor lawlissmodia to the /r/aww[3] subreddit on October 30th, 2012 (shown below, left). However, the pictures went mostly unnoticed until Redditor Huglifehero re-posted them on November 19th via /r/aww,[4] where they drew more than 8,500 up votes and 130 comments prior to its archival. On March 9th, 2013, the first captioned image macro in its multi-pane form was submitted by Redditor ZeakQ in an /r/funny[7] post titled “Is it Real?” The post garnered upwards of 21,600 up votes and 240 comments prior to being archived (shown below, right).


On February 20th, 2014, Redditor gamesbeawesome submitted a Pun Husky image macro titled “A Spelling Bee” to /r/funny,[9] which gained over 3,400 up votes and 50 comments in the first 13 days (shown below, left). The same day, the Internet humor blog Tastefully Offensive[5] posted a Pun Husky joke about the title of a dog magician (shown below, right). In the next two weeks, the post gathered more than 60,300 notes.

On February 23rd, MSN[6] highlighted several notable examples from the image macro series, referring to it as “Bad Pun Dog.” On February 28th, actress Anna Kendrick tweeted a side-by-side photograph comparing herself to the Dog pictured in the third panel, both shown with an open-mouthed smile. On March 3rd, the Internet news blog UpRoxx[8] published an article about the meme, which included a slide show of notable examples.
