Although Instagram is known for being home to countless selfies, plates of food, sunsets, and feet on a beach, we all know the true kings and queens that reign Instagram are dogs. While you worry about getting your 500th follower or 100th like, Doug the Pug is living a carefree dog life at 2.1 million followers and is published with his own book.
Marnie the dog was a shelter dog adopted at the age of 11 and has since shined on Instagram with her infamous tongue pose. Her owners encourage to adopt older shelter dogs. She has a verified account (which lets people know it’s authentic) and currently has 2 million followers which is most likely more than you or all your friends combined could ever dreame of achieving.
Some dog accounts have themes, such as the account Mensweardog, which brings a new meaning to fashion. In a recent Q and A it revealed that this unique breed requires peanut butter, good music, and ego boosts during his photo shoots.
Other dog accounts exist as community accounts that feature dogs such as Campingwithdogs, which is pretty self-explanatory. This account shows a vast range of adventure dogs “inspiring the world to go camping.” National Camping with Dogs Day is coming up October 15th, so mark your calendars!
Loki_the_wolfdog is a husky/wolf/malamute mix that spends his days chillin’ in a hammock or chasing after snowboarders. He and his owner’s mission is to inspire people to explore the world and make memories with their dogs. At 1.2 million followers, their mission seems to be a success.
Dog Instragram accounts are not limited by any bread or name. While there are a plethora of corgi accounts, there is only one special corgi named Burrito.
Of course you can never go wrong by following just one dog account, which is Dogsofinstagram. Dogsofinstagram, qutie literally, brings together all the dogs of Instagram to spread the joy of our beloved pets. At the end of the day, these dogs don’t care about the number of likes or followers they have, they are living their dog lives to the fullest and naturally encourage happiness by just being a dog. Maybe we can learn from them.
