About

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.

Origin

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).

Spread

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.
