Dogs Playing Poker: The History Behind the Classic

You may not even be conscious of it, but when someone says “Dogs Playing Poker,” you have a distinct image in your mind. You’ve seen dogs playing poker somewhere… you know you have.

Almost everyone has. Whether it was in the basement of your best friend from high school, or alongside the ping pong table in that one apartment building, the strangely famous painting by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge has mysterious mass appeal, and a permanent place in the hearts and minds of almost all living pre-millennials.

Dogs Playing Poker is an iconic centerpiece of wood-paneled dens everywhere, so it’s time you know the history… and some little-known facts… behind the clever canine masterpiece… or masterpieces.
