To be fair, most of these animals went derp because humans did derpy things to them.

Spider-Cat is not at all derpy. Spider-Cat knows exactly what Spider-Cat is doing.

I love how the Unicode glitched the layout in the title :-)

i wonder if the term derp is a little ablest, and i would be worried about using it.

This is a cat, but a cat who looks like a damn muppet. As noted by one commenter, the relevant muppet would be Animal playing the drums.

I have the birthday blues, today - and this was sorely needed.

Thank you!

I'm also worried about the Zalgo-text around said word.

I like how there's two. Do they have some sort of bitter rivalry going on? Was there an invective-laden schism?

Is it dogs themselves, or just their joie de vivre you are disdaining, sir and/or madam?

Yeah, I'm with PinkMoose. I cringe a little when I see the word "derp" because I remember when it was obnoxious 4chan nonsense intended to mock people with disabilities.

Language changes and evolves. Context is the most important thing.

I think it's fantastic that the Internet has wrestled a word away from the likes of 4chan and turned it into a word with an affectionate tone.

Yeah, like when I affectionately call someone the n-word.

Regarding the upside down pretzel dog with their foot in their mouth;

I've often thought that if I were a werewolf, don't be scared. I won't be out killing, I'll be at home licking those unreachable parts of my body.

Maeby the Found Hound is my derpier dog.
Kenda, my Border Collie mix, is usually very self-possessed so this is the only derpshot I have of her.

Bonus Maeby shot! My teef: let me show you them!

What do you call that weird character business going on in the title of this post? Like if I wanted to know more about it and/or how to do stuff with it, what would I search for?

deadbilly: That's from Zalgo (nsfw), as mentioned above. Specifically, you want the Zalgo Text Generator

Zalgo glitch text

In essence it's taking the accent marks that other languages have and piling them on top of each other.

Shout out to artist Shmorky for coming up with Zalgo, the god of approaching a destination.

Came looking for the derpy dogs of Mefi, was not disappointed! (phunniemee I laughed heartily at Truman staring at the back of the seat)

These dogs are perfect.

They are all wonderful beasts but that right there, that is the Tongue of Derp.

Not to be all downer but probably something is wrong with its teeth. Like it might not have any.
