* EvenTheDogIsAshamed, DogDiesAtTheEnd, EatTheDog, MicrowaveTheDog, ScareTheDog, PostApocalypticDog and so on are merely friends of Tropey, as their dogs are less metaphorical. And then there's TropeyComeHome and OldDog, which are as literal as it gets. Not to be confused with ThisIndexBarks, which is about real dogs. (MakeTheDogTestify 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.)
