About

Doge 2 refers to a photograph of a dog named Caesar whose facial expression was deemed similar for that of Doge, with the dog earning the nickname Doge 2 and becoming a subject of memes and fan arts in early May 2020. A number of dog photographs resembling the iconic Doge photo preceded the meme.

Origin

On May 10th, 2020, Twitter[1] user @Pogsire (@Dogesire) tweeted "I'm in a sad mood, send pet pics," with Twitter[2] user @ourbravestoy posting a photograph of their dog Caesar (photograph shown below, right). On the same day, @Pogsire[3] quoted the post, writing "Doge 2 has been officially released" (tweet shown below, right). The tweet received over 25,400 retweets and 140,500 likes in one day.

FINALLY PARALLEL UNIVERSE DOGE fan art of caesar doge 2

Doge 2 was dismissed by moderators of major Doge communities such as /r/dogelore on Reddit[9] and Doge Collection on Facebook,[10] with /r/dogelore moderators removing the majority of Doge 2 memes in the following days. On May 10th /r/dogelore[11] moderator Thot_patrol_official made an announcement that only high effort memes based on the photograph would be allowed in the subreddit.

Development

Caesar went on to become an additional side character on r/dogelore, acting as a more laid back and sociable counterpart to Doge.[12] Additionally, a female counterpart of Caesar called Clara made an apparition in the lore.[13]
