''Horndog'' is a FunnyAnimal {{Stoner|sAreFunny}} comic created by [[Creator/IsaacBaranoff Isaac M. Baranoff]] and drawn by [[{{Webcomic/Femmegasm}} Robbie Allen]]. The main character, Bob, is a "canine tomcat", a literal personification of the term "horndog", the original title of the comic.

Most of the storylines focus on his attempts to acquire [[TheStoner marijuana]], [[AllMenArePerverts sex]] or [[AuthorAppeal both]]. Storylines have focused variously on topics ranging from real-life based topics, including relationships, politics and racism, to more surreal subject matter, including [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies Zombies]] and AlienAbduction. Baranoff, who is of Russian, Irish, Scottish, Black African, Spanish and Native American origin, partly wrote it as a BeastFable about individualism, free love, interracial romance and libertarianism.

Created in 2003, ''Bob The Dog'' was the first underground comic to produce a webcomic spinoff (in 2009). ''Bob The Dog'' has been criticized for what some readers perceive as VulgarHumor, because of its high level of [[ClusterFBomb profanity]] and (initially) [[{{Fanservice}} nudity]] (which has been toned down over the years). In 2015, Baranoff announced that the comic had been renamed to the title of its main character to avoid confusion with the name of the publisher, Horndog Studios.

The comic's creator identifies the series as a "Funny Aminal" comic, instead of using the terms FunnyAnimal or UsefulNotes/{{Furry|Fandom}}. Its fans are known as "[[FanCommunityNicknames Horndogs]]".

* ContemptibleCover: Issue #6 is Charlene Kat sitting nude in a chair with a skull bong covering her crotch, but her breasts exposed. [[http://www.mspcomix.com/2012/04/comics-horndog-6.html Censored on the publisher's website, but not on the actual cover]].
* CreatorThumbprint: Bob's love of [[TheStoner marijuana]], HipHop and PunkRock are directly adapted from the author's own interests. Libertarianism and atheism also applies.
%% * {{Crossover}}: With ''Webcomic/HereWolf''.
%% * CuteLittleFangs: Charlene.
* ADateWithRosiePalms: A strip in issue 3 shows that Bob has the ability to perform oral sex on himself.
%% * DeadpanSnarker: Usually Bob, Charlene or Leonard.
* DoggedNiceGuy: Leonard shows signs of this with Charlene.

** Averted with Charlene, who is ''bisexual'' and libertarian.
* GranolaGirl: Alpha is this coupled with AlphaBitch.

%%* InkblotCartoonStyle
%%* IntellectualAnimal
* InterspeciesRomance: Most relationships and sexual encounters portrayed in the comic are of this sort, including Bob and Charlene (which is also a metaphor for an ''interracial'' romance).
%%* {{Juggalo}}
* LockedInAFreezer: Leonard, in a parody of ''Film/TheShining''.
%% * KilledOffForReal: Freddy
* MaleToFemaleUniversalAdaptor: All nude depictions of characters from this series indicate that they have human-like genitalia.
* MalignedMixedMarriage: Applies to Bob and Charlene even though they're not married. Averts DiscriminateAndSwitch because the fact that she's a ''cat'' is considered less important than the fact that she's black, so FantasticRacism is not called upon here.
* MundaneFantastic: ''Horndog'' has both social commentary and character-based material, as well as storylines featuring aliens and zombies.
* NWordPrivileges:
** Bob's use of ''nigga'' goes by without objection.
** Bob almost beat up a clerk because he thought the clerk called Charlene a ''nigger''. The clerk actually said ''niggler'' (which has [[IThoughtItMeant a quite different meaning]]). Even Charlene noticed it. Bob later noted that the similarity of the two words gave away some UnfortunateImplications.
%% * ThePornomancer: Bob
* PrepareToDie:
** Bob, to Leonard, who had drunken sex with Charlene:
-->I wanna run your head through a meat grinder.
** {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d two strips earlier by Leonard, who wonders if Bob will "be okay" with this, or [[BrickJoke if Bob will want to run Leonard's head through a meat grinder]].
%% * RefugeInAudacity
%% * RiseFromYourGrave: Freddy
%% * SeinfeldianConversation
* SelfDeprecation: Bob (whose personal preference is HipHop and PunkRock) and other characters make fun of HeavyMetal and Metalheads. In real life, creator Isaac M. Baranoff is actually a Metal fan.
* ShoutOut: The author loves these.
** Comics: Comicbook/TheFabulousFurryFreakBrothers, Peter Bagge, ''ComicBook/PlasticMan'', ''Webcomic/{{Femmegasm}}'', ''ComicBook/OmahaTheCatDancer'', Martin Kellerman's ''Comicbook/{{Rocky}}'' and ''Webcomic/WorldOfFizz'' are all mentioned to some degree.
** Literature:
*** Creator/HunterSThompson's ''Film/FearAndLoathingInLasVegas''
*** ''Literature/TheFountainhead'' by Creator/AynRand
** Movies: Among them ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead1968'' and ''Film/TheyLive''.
*** [[Film/HalfBaked Billy Bong Thornton]]
** Music: Many, including Music/BadBrains, Music/BadReligion, Music/BlackFlag, Music/BrothaLynchHung, Music/KottonmouthKings, Music/IceCube, Music/InsaneClownPosse, Music/{{Opeth}}, Music/{{Slipknot}}, Music/FrankZappa, Music/{{Twiztid}} and Zug Izland.
*** Subtle one. The character Tommy is a '''rat'''. The band Music/{{Primus}} has a song called "Tommy the '''Cat'''". Obviously intended as wordplay/tribute.
*** Music/TechN9ne is responsible for the acronym "F.U.N."[[note]]'''F'''uck '''U''' Niggas.[[/note]]
** "[[Creator/CheechAndChong Uh, Dave's not here]]"
* SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror: Primarily comedy; {{Horror}} elements sometimes played as parody, sometimes straight.
* SpeciesSurname: Andrea Mouse is a mouse.
%% ** Charlene Kat is a slight subversion. She's a
* SphereEyes: All characters.
* SpinOff: The main character in ''Webcomic/HereWolf'' made its debut in this comic, then went on to star in his own series, with a different plotline involving an InterspeciesRomance with a ''human'' female.
* TakeThat: Quite a few of these.
** Hot Topic is a reocurring one.
** Politics: Alex Jones and Bill O'Reilly have gotten a couple of these. Not to mention, Herman Cain, UsefulNotes/BarackObama, UsefulNotes/SarahPalin...
*** Averted when Baranoff almost put up a comic making fun of Creator/MichaelMoore, but took it down, not because he felt Moore was undeserving of satire, but because he felt he was coming down on the left too much and decided to switch it up and make fun of a right-wing figure, Sarah Palin.
** Music: Otep, Murder by Death and Music/TilaTequila are all the subject of mockery.
** Creator/WaltDisney: Characters that look like silhouettes of MickeyMouse and WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} are portrayed as Neo-Nazis who try to murder Bob.
** The character Alpha looks like WebComic/RaineDog. Considering [[http://isaacbaranoff.deviantart.com/art/I-got-99-problems-and-a-bitch-ain-t-one-276000426 Baranoff's interactions]] with Creator/DanaSimpson and the fact that Alpha is as a pretentious and hypocritical AlphaBitch GranolaGirl, this probably isn't a ShoutOut.
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: Freddy commits suicide, returns as a zombie, is killed by Bob, and is reincarnated as a teenage boy, only to once again be killed by a chupacabra. Then he reappears without explanation during the New Year's storyline solely for the purpose of being killed by a {{Stepford Smil|er}}ing AxCrazy [[InvertedTrope Lemming]].
