dog stars of instagram

Though the weather may be inconsistent as we near the end of summer, there’s one thing we can always count on: the dog stars of Instagram. No matter what else is going on, adorable pups always make us feel better. Scroll down to see what a few canine celebrities were up to this week.

If there’s one thing that Doug the Pug loves to do, it’s dress up. No one rocks a costume like this little avocado.

Even when he’s just chilling by the pool, he’s dressed for the occasion.

He can even pull off the Harry Potter look — and hang with the most enthusiastic Potterheads.

Smalls the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is also a pup that doesn’t mind posing for pictures. Check out his version of “blue steel.”

But when Smalls wasn’t busy modeling for his many fans, he took some time to frolic in the water. Here he is practicing his herding skills on a Labrador Retriever with a stick.

Goldie the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel started the week by comforting patients at a medical center.

After all that hard work, she thought she deserved a piece of her owner’s food. How can you resist that face?!

Goldie then participated in a photo shoot with a bunch of her Cav besties. This is quite a squad.

The Black and Tan Coonhounds of @oregondog were awfully goofy this week. Tod is definitely showing some sass in this picture.

Puppy Lou wanted to play with Tod and Rocco, but she’s still working on her coordination. It’s tough when you have long ears and long legs!

She reeaaalllllyyy wants to join the big kids…

These B&T puppies know how to make our hearts melt.

Meanwhile, Ty the Belgian Malinois gave some kisses to his unbelievably cute bunny friend. We could watch this video on repeat for hours.

After being such a softie, Ty got rough and rugged with a little bit of hiking that involved climbing over rocks.

Finally, he took a moment to stop and smell the roses (or leaves, rather). Ty clearly loves being out in nature.
