"Dogs embody loyalty! They follow their master's commands above all else! Be a jerk to them and they don't complain, and they never once beg for a pay check! Trust me, Fuery, they're the great servants of MAN! LOYAL CANINE, HOW WE SALUTE THEE! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

Supergirl: Krypto! Come here!
The Flash: ... Superman has a... dog?
Supergirl: Krypto, it's me! It's Kara! You survived!! Oof! I never thought I'd miss your drool!

Supergirl: You better hope our dog is okay. Or we're going to hurt you.
Power Girl: Oh, Kara, Honey. That's a given.

All I know for sure is, Krypto is a good dog.

"People who do not like dogs do not know dogs. It is very difficult to dislike a being who worships you and would gladly die for you — especially when it is handsome and frisky and empathetic, and a good, good doggie, yes it is."
Roger Ebert on My Dog Tulip

"Snowy, the half-Bichon, half-Shih Tzu bundle of energy trotting from the end of my arm, whom everybody wants to see or touch as he passes them, shifts my position on the map of the global village out of the cave and onto a wholly different plane. Little kids gasp 'Doggy!', grown adults point him out to each other, and the elderly — who often pass me fearfully in case of an imminent mugging, even though I try really, really hard not to give that impression, with my best efforts at genial body language — all want to stop and rub his little ears...having a dog is some weird invitation for people, especially other dog owners, to stop and talk to you, like they’ve put on the ray bans from They Live, and suddenly see a person, where once was nothing but a 6′ tall space of transparent atoms."

Nasthalthia Luthor: Okay. So Lex and Superboy were enemies, now. Lex wasn't in trouble with the law yet, but that wouldn't take long. Lex tried to kill Blue Boy and his stupid dog with some living-Kryptonite thingies he'd created, and got close as dammit to doing it. It took one of those Legion kids to save Supes's backside in that one.
Starfire: Did he take Lex to jail after that?
Nasthalia: No. Believe it or not, he was still willing to give Lex another chance. He just wrecked his equipment and gave him a warning. It was more like, 'Three strikes and you're out.' But Lex was never much into baseball. So he pulled another job, when that Robin kid was visiting from the future. That was the third strike. After that, Superboy up and took him to jail, pushed charges against him, and got him sentenced to reform school. I guess it was a bad idea for Lex to involve the dog in that Kryptonite caper. The kid liked that dog.


How well does it match the trope?
