Doge just wanted to be loved, and never understood why his original owners abandoned him at the animal shelter. Doge was sad and wanted to find new owners that would love him, but the shelter kept him in the back of the shelter because his face was too meme-like. They told doge that nobody would ever love him again, so doge decided to escape on the next daily walk. He slipped out of the collar the shelter gave him and decided to live on the streets of Portland. His fur coat was just getting thick enough to withstand the crisp, cold Oregon air. His first night on the streets, he started to smell an amazing scent that drew him towards it. Was that bacon? No! It was the smell of freshly baked donuts. He followed the scent and ended up outside the Portland famous Voodoo Donuts. He rummaged through the trashcans of the fine establishment and found a perfectly intact voodoo donut. The voodoo donut, the ghostly figure had something evil in it and doge started to feel a change in his tiny doge body. He started growing like Alice in Wonderland and soon was the size of the Fremont Bridge. Cute little doge was suddenly evil dank meme doge after eating that voodoo donut and started to wreak havoc on the city because all his sad emotions of being abandoned turned into evil ones. He wanted to find his old owners so he sought across the city. Will doge ever find them?
