What is Doge

DOGE or Doge is the misspelt version of Dog. The word became famous after a 2005 home star puppet video was released. In this show, there is an episode titled Biz Cas Fri, in which the star character nicknames his Cohort Star bad, Doge. The idea behind this was to distract him from his work.

It was not until 2010 when the misspelt word was mentioned to Reddit and made aware of its existence.

It was only in 2012 that the word gained its popularity, enough to be turned into a meme and spread to the world. It was at a peak around 2013 where the whole virtual world was filled with nothing but doges!

Who is the Doge

The doge meme consists of a picture of a Shiba Inu dog, posing in a particular manner.

In 2010, a Japanese kindergarten teacher posted several photographs of her rescue-adopted Shiba Inu dog whom she named Kabosu. The photos were posted on her blog.

However, out of all the pictures, there was a peculiar shot of Kabosu, sitting on the couch while glaring sideways at the camera with his eyebrows raised.

It was only in 2013 after the doge meme was at a peak with its popularity, a tech news site known as the Verge, published an article identifying Kabosu as the original Shiba Inu that is shown in the meme.

The Verge also identified Suki, who is the pet of a San Francisco based photographer Jonathan Fleming to be the Scarfed dog which is another famous instance of this meme.

The popularity

The photograph of Kabosu was sent to Reddit which received about 266 upvotes, 218 points and 44 comments before being archived.

It continues to be popular since there are a lot of pages on Instagram, Facebook and even Twitter that have dedicated their love to the doge meme. And even today you can find doge memes on Reddit. The famous Shiba Inu has its Instagram page too!
