You ever notice your dog doing some small, adorable, ridiculous thing, and find yourself thinking– "man, there should be a word for that!" Well, ask and the internet delivers. Here's an introduction to some of our favorite dog words, or Doggo Lingo. If you constantly find yourself hunting down dog memes or talking about your favorite puppers with your friends online, this might be familiar to ya…

Whew, we're all caught up! And beyond internet lingo, there's a lot of fun in finding our own words for this stuff too. For instance– whenever a dog makes a squeaky whining sound, I call this a "skwerk," eg, "Hey pal whatcha skwerkin' about?" I don't know why I started doing this, it just… happened.

Do you have a word of your own that you use to describe something your dog does? We want to hear all about it! Reach out and we'll feature your definition in an email. Wagster's Dictionary is open for submissions.
