Gone to the dogs : Phrases


Someone who has worsened in appearance, character or behaviour.



This is an analogy to the scraps of waste food etc that were thrown to dogs from medieval baronial dining tables. They were of no other use. Thus, if someone is said to have
gone to the dogs, he is also regarded as worthless.
