A joke, usually long, with a silly premise, often involving talking animals. Named for a classic joke involving a lost shaggy dog. Punch line: "Not that shaggy!"

A long, harrowing tale often beset by misfortunes that the protagonist endures, only for all his/her/its/their victories to be rendered pointless in one move.
The quintessential shaggy dog story goes like this: One day, a man was hiking when he had a terrible fall. Then, he was discovered by a shaggy dog. The man worked through the pain to take the dog home. After tending his injuries and feeding the dog, he discovers in the papers that a rich couple were looking for a shaggy dog, and were offering a reward for anyone who found it. The man then sold everything he could think of to buy a ticket to the owner's residence area. He even paid extra for handling the dog. When the man landed, he scraped just enough money to get a car. He went to the dog's owner's mansion, but missed the gate. When the man got to the door, he and the dog were shot dead by a guard.
