Okay here is my favourite pun, it may be hard to get but see it as a challenge:

"Was macht man mit einem Hund ohne Beine?" "Um die Häuser ziehen!"

:D

Yes, that is the literal translation of it. In German, the Phrase "Um die Häuser ziehen" means to go out and party with your friends, as in "Hey Jungs, lasst uns um die Häuser ziehen!"

It's a pun since you both suggest going to party with the dog (which isnt all that nice regarding the state it is in) and dragging it around since it would not be able to walk with the same expression :D
