I worked like a dog and now I’m dog tired…

Maybe I need a nip of the hair of the dog.

It's a doggy-dog world.
Here's a funny one.

Every dog has its day - meaning everyone has their time in the limelight, their period of success or power.

But compare the Arabic (and Hebrew) saying that has the opposite meaning:
Every dog's day will come (Kul kalb biji yomo - كُلّ كَلْب بِيجِي يُومُه) - meaning every evil person will get there punishment some day.
We are not terribly far from the dog daze of summer.
Interesting @Noam Bergman. But the dog still gets his idiom.
Lol. Is it dog eat dog or doggy-dog world @Dean Calahan?
I think it's a doggie-bag dog world.

Doggonit, i can't think of any puns.
Always take a doggie bag or you’ll be in the doghouse
@Will - keep at it, and you will find some more. You need to be doggedly persistent.
Hot dog, you found some more idioms.

Eat your own dog food
Where's all that water coming from, Fido?
Roof! Roof! Roof!
Snow and cold wind, it's a three dog night.
I need another two dogs.
Of course. One is the lonliest number that you ever do.
I suspect I’ll need all three dogs tomorrow night.
“I am his Highness' Dog at Kew,
Pray tell me Sir, whose Dog are You?”
It would seem that the dog in the manger has been long forgotten.
Oh yeah--you can't dog-ear a Kindle. That might cause any old bibleophile to have a hang-dog appearance. But kids these days would certainly know how to screw the pooch.
This thread has gone to the dogs.

Who let the dogs out
Woof, woof-woof, woof woof.

Patti Page - How Much Is That Doggie In The Window
Elvis knew “You Ain’t Nothin’ But a Hound Dog”.
There was a farmer, had a dog
And Bingo was his name-o!
B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O
And Bingo was his name-o!

/me ducks and runs for leaving such an ear worm
That is an earworm song, all right.
There is only one riposte.

"Cry 'havoc', and let slip the dogs of war".

Earworm war, of course...
The can has been opened
...and out comes an album from Nazareth, lookin' 'bout half past dead...

(Okay so I mixed two things there; just take a load off).
An interesting choice @Simon Ashcroft. I forgot about the “dogs of war.”
The shaker of the spear would be distressed at such amnesia...
The venom clamours of a jealous woman poison more deadly than a mad dog's tooth.

William Shakespeare
I am misanthropos, and hate mankind, For thy part, I do wish thou wert a dog, That I might love thee something.

Ah - you cannot beat the classics.
I think Shakespeare said everything we quote. 😉
Some claim that Wigglepole wrote all the drafts and Shakespeare edited them.
We’ll never know…
I think Rumplestiltskin may have been a continuity advisor.
Well, discussing dogs wouldn't be complete without Fascinating Aida's very rude song. Look away if you're of a sensitive disposition...
I don't really mind the subject matter, and I suppose playing the piano like a jackhammer is concordant with the song's topic, and she does say dogging a lot, so I guess there's that. But is it art? After a fashion, bloody hell yeah.
I'm just Walking my Dog.
