Written and illustrated by Brian Anderson, Dog Eat Doug began in 2004 as a webcomic. but in November 2005 it was picked up for syndication by Creators Syndicate.
The "Dog" in the title refers to Sophie, a female chocolate lab and Doug is the baby of Sophie's owners. The two share a love-hate relationship in their everyday lives and imaginations, with Doug often responding to Sophie's actions by saying "Bak!" Doug's parents also make appearances in the strip as minor characters, though they are only seen from the neck down.
Brian sent his college strip to the syndicates in 1998. Although there was interest in developing the feature, Brian knew this wasn't the strip for him. For the next few years, Brian spread his focus on his dark comic book visions and fledgling screenwriting career.
All that changed in 2003. In a matter of months, he became a husband, a homeowner and father of a chocolate Labrador puppy. With the support of his wife, Tammy, and the inspiration of his dog, Sophie, he created Dog eat Doug.
The daily strip continues to enjoy a growing, international fan base.
