Man's best friend is an important part of our lives, and even some of the best rap songs are about dogs. Our warmest, fuzziest thoughts come to mind when we think about our dogs. They’re part of our family, the one that is always the very first to greet us when we come home, the one who patiently sleeps by our beds all night waiting for the moment we wake up, the one we can always count on to be there for us when no one else can be found.

Because of all the above "dog" has  become a term, for the buddies who have your back no matter what. So unsurprisingly, many good hip hop artists have written lyrics talking about our furry friends. This list features songs that inspired by some of the top rappers' top dogs (both literally and figuratively), such as Lil Wayne and Reel's "I Miss My Dawgs" and DMX's " For My Dogs." Additionally, songs that center around or heavily reference the word “dog” or “puppy” within the song itself are eligible for inclusion, such as the self-hyping jams from Snoop Dogg and Bow Wow, "Who Am I (What's My Name)" and "Bow Wow (That's My Name)."
