Dog eat Doug (often abbreviated DeD) is a comic strip written and illustrated by Brian Anderson. It began in 2004 as a webcomic that ran on the cartoonist's homepage and Comics Sherpa, and was later picked up for newspaper syndication through Creators Syndicate. The newspaper run began on November 14, 2005.
The "Dog" in the title refers to Sophie, a female chocolate lab; Doug is the baby of Sophie's owners. The two share a love-hate relationship in their everyday lives and imaginations. Doug's parents also make appearances in the strip as minor characters, though they are only seen from the neck down.
