Heck, they probably let themselves out.
That song isn't about dogs but rather is saying "There are a lot of ugly women at this party." :P

actually its about a bunch of disrespectful guys trying to pick up chicks. "i hear a woman shout out, 'who let the dogs out?'"
either way it would be quite insulting to dogs in the HP universe.

Well, I mean, dogs are kind of ill-mannered in human terms - sniffing butts, chewing with their mouths open, etc.

Yeah, the original artist (Anslem Douglas) even said it's about women calling men who act stupid at parties dogs.

Maybe in the HP universe it's about a mass escape at an obedience boarding school. :lol:

I wonder if all pets in the hp universe get education and would want to learn about the world like us

What about superheroes and villains that have overt animal themes?

Batman, Penguin, Catwoman, Sabertooth, Rhino, Black Panther...

Heck, just Black Panther alone might be an international incident waiting to happen...

The Buddy Cop - Dog Movie subgenre (K9, Top Dog, Turner and Hooch, etc.) would be different. There would probably be more of them too.

There would probably also be a bunch of K9 officer shows.

Homeward Bound would be a lot less interesting.

(Over the phone)

"Shadow, I know I said I'd be back this Friday, but I won't be able to be back until next week."

"Oh, ok. We'll wait here a little longer."

*hangs up phone*

"It's a good thing I can understand humans over those things."

THE END :P

Secret Lives of Pets would probably be live action, and suffer from rampant 'incompetent child actor' issues given how HPU pets often act like kids.

...what about webcomics that heavily feature anthropomorphic animals in place of humans, complete with humanlike anatomy? Especially with comics like SaveState, where humans are actually a fictional species?

Most be considered some pretty animal-superiorist stuff.

...Hm.. Wonder how many games would be directed specifically towards pets.

That's interesting. I wonder what pet targeted games would be like.

Not pop culture, but if all animals had the same physical speech capabilities I'd say language as a whole would be very different, especially history and how the languages themselves developed. Probably the world's languages would have been more globalized for eons because of mass bird migrations and animal factions having different frontiers than human ones.

You know, I just remembered another webcomic that is exclusively populated by anthropomorphic animals. Just to mess with people, we see a strip of a random passerby WALKING A NORMAL QUADROPEDAL DOG. How in the world would something like that translate to the HPU?

Artistic license?
upright locomotion is somewhat of an anomaly among most species IRL, even if parallel evolution allowed multiple species to achieve that simultaneously in the HPU, they wouldn't have started like that and still would have needed some ancestor somewhere in history with a different locomotion method.

It would be the equivalent of Dragonball having living dinosaurs in the wild (yes, thats a thing).

I was just thinking how HPU might affect parts of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Parts of Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency I imagine would be downright unwatchable because they'd scare the living daylights out of pets (what would essentially amount to killing and eating a sentient being/watching a squirrel being possessed and turned into a ravenous maneater).

Oh, and Iggy would probably add the most sarcastic quips about the antics of Jotaro an co. in Stardust Crusaders, and it would be cool as to see him summon the Fool with a commanding shout like Jotaro summons Star Platinum.

So, there's been a lot of Star Trek talk recent(ish)ly, and as I was mulling things over it occurred to me, Data has a cat. He's never really important to the series, but in the HP! universe that could be different.

Also, in Enterprise (I know, but it's canon), Cpt. Archer has his beagle Porthos along the entire run of the series. Porthos being ill is a major subplot in the season 2 episode A Night in Sickbay. (He's important to the main plot too, for other reasons).

If the Federation is supposed to represent a Utopian future, do you think there would be animal officers on the shows?

What you mean Spot? Maybe she'd replace Wesley.

Wouldn't be hard, given a wet paper bag would be more interesting than Wil Wheaton.
Then the writers wouldn't be able to flanderize him into a mary-sue by trying to shoehorn in plots that are all about the character nobody actually cares about.
