Thoughts Of Dog is a Twitter account that posts random thoughts from the mind of a dog. It spun off from We Rate Dogs and has achieved a certain degree of Internet success (over 3 million followers and counting) due to the inherent comedy and adorableness of the dog's musings and updates on their life with their human and their favorite toy, which the dog refers to as "my stuffed fren sebastian."

Thoughts Of Dog provides examples of:

  • all lowercase letters: The dog's tweets are written like this.
  • Attention Deficit Oh Shiny: At least he admits it.
    The Dog: i’m sorry i forgot to say gooooob morning. i woke up. and was immediately distracted by everything.
  • Beige Prose: Befitting of a dog. They're not known to be great authors.
  • Big Friendly Dog: If the profile picture is any indication, the dog is big enough to carry a large watermelon rind in their mouth with little trouble. And they certainly are friendly.
  • CAPS LOCK: When the dog park is mentioned, or when the human comes home early.
  • Catchphrase: "gooooob morning."
  • Companion Cube: Sebastian to the dog. There appear to be several "stuffed frens," but Sebastian is the only named one, and the dog is quite fond of him.
  • Department of Redundancy Department
    The Dog: occasionally. the freezer will provide crunch water. this is way better than regular water. because of the crunch

  • Friend to All Living Things: The dog loves meeting new people (as long as he gets to meet them, see below).
  • Green-Eyed Monster:
    The Dog: the human just came home. smelling like another dog. this isn’t a problem. i’m totally not upset. if anybody needs me. i’ll be over here. wondering what i ever did to deserve this
  • Implausible Deniability:
    The Dog: there was a sandwich. on the edge of the counter. and now there isn’t. those are all the details. we can confirm so far. the piece of lettuce on my nose. is purely circumstantial
  • The Klutz: He means well.
    The Dog: gooooob morning. i am already tangled. in the cords behind the couch.
  • Metaphorically True: The dog often uses this to justify behavior his owner might question.
    The Dog: when i run through the house. with paws full of mud. please remember. i am making art. i am an artist

  • OOC Is Serious Business: The dog blocking FCC chairman Ajit Pai after the 2017 net neutrality debate. You know you've messed up royally when that happens.
  • New Year's Resolution: The dog's is to love his owner even more, he says.
  • Nice Guy: The dog really is just a genuinely nice individual.
  • No Name Given: Neither the dog nor their owner has been assigned a name or a gender thus far.
  • Perfectly Cromulent Word: Fond of these, like „snoozles“.
  • Refuge in Audacity:
    The Dog: sometimes. i lie down during a walk. and refuse to get up. so the human has no choice. but to spend more time with me
  • Serious Business: Going to the park, it even makes the dog's thoughts change to CAPS LOCK.
    • The dog also spends a lot of time monitoring a single Skittle lying under the fridge. It considers this very important, but does not mention why.
  • Stylistic Suck: The dog's thoughts are formatted in all lowercase, with poor grammar, misspelled words, and very little punctuation except for lots and lots of periods where they don't belong. Then again, they are supposed to be written by a dog...
  • True Companions: The dog has this impression of the relationship with its owner.
  • Written Sound Effect: Refers to the sound his paws make when running as „tippy taps“.
