Growing up I always felt like my dads jokes were the cheesiest and was always embarrassed around my friends. They were mostly puns, seemingly aimed at an audience of age 6 or less. I’m not a parent yet, but at this age I have come to appreciate those kinds of jokes. They might be a little silly, but they are easy to remember, easy to tell, and the reaction to the joke is always entertaining.
So without further ado, here are my favorite dog jokes, most of which I will be telling to my kids with the same disregard for their popularity or comfort level as my dad did before me:

Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.
A dog walks into a bar and hops up on a stool. He looks the bartender straight in the eye and says, “Hey, guess what? I can talk. Have you ever seen a talking dog before? Amazing, right? How about a drink?”
The bartender thinks for a moment and says, “Sure, the toilet’s right around the corner.”
One weekend morning, a wife says to her husband, “We’ve got such a clever dog. He brings in the daily newspapers every morning.”
Her husband replies, “Well, lots of dogs can do that.”
The wife responded, “But we’ve never subscribed to any!”
A man takes his Bulldog to the vet and says “My dog is cross-eyed. Is there anything you can do for him?”
The vet thinks for a few seconds and says, “Well, let’s have a look at him.” The vet picks the dog up while examining his eyes. At long last, he says, “I’m going to have to put him down.”
“What? Just because he is cross-eyed?”
“No, because he is really, really heavy.”
On the door of the general store, a customer noticed the sign DANGER! BEWARE OF DOG! He carefully entered the store, but once inside all he saw was a harmless old hound dog asleep on the floor beside the cash register. He asked the store manager, “Is THAT the dog folks are supposed to beware of?”
“Yep, that’s him,” he replied.
The stranger could not help but be amused. “That certainly does not look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world would you post that sign?”
“Because,” the owner replied, “before I posted that sign, people kept tripping over him.”
A burglar is sneaking through this house one night, when out of the darkness comes a voice, “I can see you, and Jesus can, too”.
The burglar freezes in his tracks and is too frightened to move. He waits a few moments and nothing has happened so he moves forward. Again from the darkness comes the voice, “I can see you, and Jesus can, too”. The burglar is petrified and too frightened to move a muscle.
After thirty minutes, he decides to do something. He backs very slowly and tentatively to the wall and feels around for a light switch. He switches on the light and there in front of him, sit a cockatoo in a cage, who says, “I can see you, and Jesus can, too”.
Greatly relieved, the burglar sighs, “It’s just a cocktaoo”. The cockatoo looks at the burglar and says, “I might be just a cockatoo but Jesus is a big Rottweiler”.
