Sweater puppies are the favorite breed of all men, overcoming every other incarnation of cuteness on this planet.
They are the warm, loving breasts of women.
Origin of the term
The slick name comes from the fact, that men love to pet and cuddle nothing more than the soft, round bosom of women… not even puppies.
The pet of choice for men reside under the shelter of the sweaters, which by the act of protecting them, take on the form of the mummeries, gifting us with the silhouettes of the very things we love and embrace.
Though the expression’s origin is hard to pinpoint, it came to our dictionary most likely in the late 20th century and by the 2000’s people have already been throwing the word around in conversations.
Spread of the term
The first Urban Dictionary entry, that shed light on the phrase for the dwellers of the internet, was written in 2003.
Since then there had been multiple other attempts on the site at finding a shrewder way of describing the puppies of the sweater.
Today, most people know what “sweater puppies” mean, and men are not going to picture a couple of cute dogs, wrapped in the cardigans of grandma.
