the phrase initiated in the 16th century when dogs would guard homes and small communities, were fed scraps, slept outside and had short lives. so it meant life wasn't good.
whereas today dogs are well fed, groomed, pampered, sleep inside and live longer, so it now means a good life.
I had breakfast in bed and lay around the house all day. its a dogs life.
