People Break Down Which Fictional Dog Is Their Absolute Favorite

Y'all I love Scooby-Doo so much that I watched a marathon while in labor with my first kid.

It's THAT serious.


Reddit user Fearless_Link_3464 asked:

"Who is your favorite fictional dog?"

So of course the memory of me pain-singing the theme song to What's New Scooby-Doo? immediately came to mind. That theme song might be my favorite thing Simple Plan has ever done - and that's me speaking as a fan. I never moved beyond my emo phase and there's nothing wrong with that.

Just like there's nothing wrong with loving a sort-of-talking cartoon dog.

Or loving any of these dope doggos; and yes, Scooby shows up on this list - as well he should.

The nose is constantly being attacked by odors of the world.

Going through one day without having to hold my breath during a certain point, is a miracle.
