If you’re a dog lover, what does your social media look like? There’s only one right answer. Forget about friends and family, you’re all about the dogs. 

And dogs are more popular than ever on these platforms. Doug the Pug, for example, has 3.3 million followers, which is more than the entire population of Chicago, Ill. After all, who doesn’t want to see more pups on their feed? Dogs are adorable, funny, carefree, and can easily brighten up anyone’s day. That’s why we’re excited to introduce our new weekly column: This Week in Dog Stars. 

Didn’t have time to stalk your favorite canines on Instagram? Don’t worry! Here’s a roundup of a few of the best posts from the past seven days.


Wally the Welsh Corgi, aka the King of the Insta-Corgs, got some thrilling news. He’s not only going to be a big brother, but he’s going to have TWO younger brothers. His owners are having twins!

When you wish for a sibling and you get blessed with two.

Wally also indulged in some retail therapy and dressed up like a lion.

Treat yourself to a little retail therapy.

The Newfoundlands of @MollytheNewfie had quite an exciting week. They took some adorable naps and learned how to get the mail. We also found out that Duke the Newfie loves a certain something even more than he loves food…

Dukes daily chore! Who else loves getting the mail?

Rocky the Samoyed, on the other hand, had a pretty uneventful, yet still cute, week. He lamented about the inconsistent weather.

He also got a bath and was feeling fresh and clean!

The LCC Comfort Dogs were hard at work, as always. They visited St. Charles East High School, comforted a woman in hospice, and posed like pros.

Biggie, Ruby, Sonny, and Lucy had a grand ol’ time playing outside and going on adventures!

All this exploring calls for a snack.
