Dog Day Sunday: Our Favorite Dog Memes!

You can’t open a newspaper tab to a news site without reading about a global catastrophe or a terrible act of violence. You might as well stay off social media, too, lest you be bombarded with drama ranging from simple, sad laments about it nearly being Monday, to posts that will make you want to tearfully cancel your Internet subscription entirely.

There are few things that make me forget everything awful in the world and put a legitimate smile on my face, but one of those things is looking at dog memes with my pups Daisy and Shadow!

For those of you who have been living in a cave without wifi, this is the definition of a meme:

For those of you who have been living in a cave on Jupiter, this is the definition of a dog (take special note of the informal meaning that I definitely did not make up):

While there have been many adorable furballs who have found internet fame via dog memes (such as those mentioned by BarkPost in their feature 11 Essential Dog Memes You Absolutely Need to Know) I thought I’d share a few lesser-known doggies who always make me chuckle, even after a “ruff” day!

(Note: GeekGirl World did not create any of these memes – we’re just trying to spread the e-smiles by sharing these cute canines that we found on the interwebz!)

Dog Day Sunday: Get Your F’cking Dog Fixed

“Get Your F’cking Dog Fixed.”

This phrase is succinct, powerful, and can literally save lives— one such life belonging to Yoshi, a sweet dog who has literally been through it all.

In November 2014, a hero named Roxanne rescued him from a deplorable breeder and nursed him back to health. He was adopted out to a new family, and everyone expected him to live happily ever after! Unfortunately, in April 2016, his adopters reported he was not doing well and was in desperate need of vet care. While they originally considered euthanizing the poor pup, they eventually agreed to surrender him to the rescue group PAWSibilities are Endless.

Luckily, his story does not end there.

Roxanne shared Yoshi’s journey with Devanny Novak of Friends of Mayhem, a community-based program working to improve the lives of animals. It was through Friends of Mayhem that I learned of a witty t-shirt campaign. By making a $25 donation, I’d receive a shirt stamped with the phrase “Get Your F’cking Dog Fixed” (the “u” replaced with an adorable paw print).  100% of the proceeds would go directly to PAWSibilities are Endless to help cover the costs of Yoshi’s care.

Moved by his story, I immediately purchased the shirt! Every time I wear it, I think, “This could help Yoshi! This could help dogs just like him!”

Please consider helping Yoshi and dogs just like him by making a donation, purchasing the t-shirt, or by simply sharing his story.

Dog Day Sunday: Mia of the Rings

Meet Mia, one of the four-legged rescues at Noah’s Animal House in Las Vegas, Nevada, a refuge for abused and displaced women, children, and their pets. Sadly, Mia’s mom couldn’t keep her, so this sweetie is up for adoption.

She loves giving kisses, running to and fro, and playing with her toy ring (the latter which inspired this week’s Lord of the Rings themed edition of Dog Day Sunday)!

Update: Mia has been reunited with her mama! There hasn’t been a day this joyous since the Hobbits returned to the Shire!
