Dog Christmas Puns No One Asked For

We’re already in December, which means Santa Paws is coming to town! Time to decorate Christmas trees, bake cookies, and send greeting cards. We thought: why not do our part to sprinkle in a little pawliday cheer with some (hopefully) funny dog Christmas puns?

In case you couldn’t tell from our Star Wars Day puns post, we love animal puns and wordplay here at Outward Hound.

We hope you’ll gather ’round the Yule dog with your loved ones to share some joy this holiday season. Here are some punny dog and cat puns to get you ready to “deck the paws.”

Consider this the Christmas card you never asked for.
