In Honor Of #Dogcheese, A Brief Compendium Of Food-And-Pet Memes

Cats may be the collective internet's favorite pet, but dogs rule on social media. Doggos and puppers—and their snoofers, boops, and heckin' bamboozlin'—boast their own language, tropes, and memes. The latest, for those not yet in the know, is #dogcheese, in which dog owners toss slices of cheese onto their dogs and film the reactions. If you want context, I have none. That's honestly the entire gist of this meme.


It's hardly the first of its kind, though; here are some preceding pet-plus-food memes that we recommend you check out, especially if you find yourself stuck in an airport this holiday travel week:

Dog vs. lemon

Lemons freak dogs out, probably because they're tart.

Dog vs. strawberry

Cat vs. cucumber

Cats hate cucumbers, but no one's entirely sure why. Maybe because the veggies look like snakes?


Throw a slice of cheese at your dog? I don't know.
