Dog Days: Canines and their Humans
September 27, 2017
It’s easy to get caught up in the seemingly frivolous world of #dogsofinstagram. Yes, there are frenchies living glamorous lives and shih tzus with better hair than you, but there’s a reason these and other canine chronicling accounts exist.
Dogs have the uncanny ability to brighten otherwise dark days. Why else would we set aside a whole week in September to celebrate them and educate the public on their care? They also happen to be incredibly photogenic—just look at the highbrow dog docu-series that is The Dogist. These accounts bring attention to playful pooches in need of homes, whether they’ve been displaced by hurricanes or neglect, as much as they entertain.
Today, we look at Instagrammers who have welcomed canine companions into their homes and hearts, showcasing their better furry halves at every opportunity. Sit, stay and read on.
