What's that, Tropey? We're here to talk about something?
Oh, we're here to talk about tropes that use a metaphorical dog like yourself?
- Adopt the Dog
- The Dog Was the Mastermind: A slightly more literal case than most, but still falls under Tropey's purview.
- Pet the Dog
- Kick the Dog
- Shoot the Dog
- Shaggy Dog Story
- Throw the Dog a Bone
- Even the Dog Is Ashamed, Dog Dies At the End, Eat the Dog, Scare the Dog, and so on are merely friends of Tropey, as their dogs are less metaphorical. And then there's Tropey Come Home and Old Dog, which are as literal as it gets. Not to be confused with This Index Barks, which is about real dogs. (Make the Dog Testify is borderline; while the "Dog" in question does not have to be a Canine, it does have to be an animal, and it usually is a Canine.)
