Sandwich Showdown: Adorable “Dogwiches” Spark Online Frenzy!

Surely confinement has instigated many great ideas and not so many. When boredom set in, men turned to their pets as they were their last source of entertainment.

Before we knew it, the animal pun “in bread” arose. In fact, people found it so funny that it became one of the biggest Internet fads. The recipe is simple. You take a piece of bread (of your choice) and put it on your beloved furball’s head. You laugh out loud, preferably hysterically, at this priceless spectacle. Grab a camera and take a picture. Voila! Your pet in bread is ready to share.

Bored Panda compiled the funniest examples of pure bread dogs, but beware, the post is gluten-free!

If you’re wondering why the hell people put slices of bread on their pets, you’re not alone.

A Reddit user on the r/outoftheloop subreddit: “I keep seeing dogs on the internet (specifically Pomeranians) with slices of bread around their heads. Is there any reason to do this other than it looks cute? And why bread? Does anyone know the origin of this meme?

Fortunately, people had many theories in their answers. One responded that the meme has to do with “that they are purebred, race = bread.” Another suggested the joke dated back to cats. “If you put a rope or a rubber band around a cat’s whiskers, he will get scared and start backing away as if he were stuck in the middle of a pipe.”
