Dog Puns for Birthday
- As you turn one year older, remember: anything’s paws-ible, no matter what age you are!
- It must be someone’s birthday – the pup-arazzi are here! Note: this one is best if accompanied by an image of dogs holding cameras.
- It’s your birthday! We’re celebrating you today! Don’t terrier self up!
- Who let a birthday girl in here looking so fetching?
- For your birthday, I’m giving you the corg-key to my heart.
- I am the mighty wizard Labracadabrador! Hear my proclamation on this grand day. I hereby grant you a paw-some birthday. I ruff you! Note: this one works best if you put the first two sentences on the first page with a picture of a stern-looking dog in a wizard’s hat, then the last two sentences on the inside with that same dog now adorned by heart eyes.
- It’s your birthday: let’s get this pawty started!
- You are glowing today! You should be on the Vanity Fur cover.
- Spotted! It’s the birthday boy/girl/kid! Note: this works best with a picture of a dalmatian, preferably one wielding a magnifying glass.
- Dog-gone it, would you look at that! He’s gotten another year wiser, more experienced, and more beautiful! Happy birthday! I hope you have many more to come.
- Happy birthday, let’s hope it’s a Great Day-ne!
- Start your special day off right: with some Woofles and a pot of Earl Greyhound tea. Note: this is best accompanied by a picture of a greyhound dog sipping tea and eating waffles.
- You’re a whole year older?! That’s mind beagle-ing!
- The twenties/thirties/forties/etc. have ended their reign of terrier, let the paw-some thirties/forties/fifties/etc. begin!
- Front: I hope you have a grrr-ape birthday! Inside: But please do not have a grape birthday. That would be extremely poisonous for me. Note: Both the front and inside should be accompanied by a picture of a dog.
- Front: Happy birthday! I brought you something… Inside: It’s a bark-uterie board! Note: On the front, include a picture of a dog holding something behind its back. On the inside, have the same dog present a charcuterie board with dog treats.
- Front: I have to a-paw-logize to you… Inside: I let all my friends in here to wish you a happy birthday! Note: On the front, include a dog looking sheepish. In the background, you can also depict household items that are mostly hiding different dogs. On the inside, include a scene of all those dogs popping out and wishing the reader a happy birthday.
- Front: For your birthday, I got you a Furr-ari! Inside: I didn’t, that was a lie. I’m so sorry. I hope you have a happy birthday anyway. Note: This works especially well if you paste a gift card to the inside of the card, or accompany the card with a small, key-shaped gift. A rare alternative to consider is to simply gift them a real Ferrari.
- Front: For your birthday, I’m going to welcome you home with some… Inside: Paw-cussion! Note: For this one, include a picture inside of a dog playing drums. It’s probably best to have a dog not playing drums on the front as well.

Dog Pun Birthday Party Ideas
If you have a friend who loves puns, a friend who loves dogs, or even a dog you want to celebrate, you can use any of these puns and jokes to plan a delightful evening.
One way to do so would be to hide different ones throughout the venue, letting people discover them as they go to the bathroom or grab another drink.
Another potential activity is to give everyone one half of a pun or joke and then give out a prize to the first, second, and third people who find their joke “match” at the party.
