It’s obvious, really: “God” and “dog” are just two sides of the same coin. Literally any pantheon, deity, or divine force that’s ever existed - yep, they’re all dogs somewhere.

But why? What reason could the omnipotent creator of the universe have to take on the form of man’s best friend?

Vaguely plausible answers preferable. If you’re a being capable of literally anything conceivable, would you really want to be a dog?

(Huge thanks to @Tim B for this question.)

    $\begingroup$ I'm confused. Are you saying that real-life deities are all dogs, or that all the deities In your world are dogs? $\endgroup$

A funny thing about being a deity is that it's not always obvious who is the head honcho. You can appear to have omipotent power to those little cute humans scurrying about, while still having to defer to the commander and chief.

So we humans see a bunch of deities that are all dogs. Funny. I wonder why all deities are dogs? I might even ask the question on Stack Exchange. But I have to see through. I have to see through to that clever conniving mastermind who lets all the dogs do their dirty work for them.

Yes. The real deity is a cat. The real deity is any cat, and all cats.

Specifically, these cats.

The "creator" is dyslexic. As such: "god" and "dog" are identical.

Also, (s)he can judge how Man treats his "best friend". This helps approve/deny Satan's request for an expansion.
