About

Wide Dog refers to two separate images of obese dogs used in memes, sometimes with the premise of the dog being shy, embarrassed and/or bullied about its weight.

Origin

On September 15th, 2018, Facebook [1] posted an image of a large white dog in the Dogspotting Facebook group with the caption "Thicc sadboi in Brussels I saw just over a month ago. 😞 so precious. so round." The post received more than 21,000 reactions, 500 shares and 500 comments (shown below).



In the following months, the image was posted by several subreddits, with November 9th, 2018, post to /r/AbsoluteUnits gaining over 1,200 upvotes.[2] On January 16th, 2019, Instagram user bearboob used the edited image in post parodying a news headline, captioned "Wide dog gets somehow wider, seeks help from God" (shown below). The post gained over 32,500 likes in four months.[3]
