The Internet has been a vessel for letting yourself be heard all over the world, connecting with your dearest friends, and more importantly: flaunting your pets.
In high school, I was super into Emily The Strange so naturally I thought I was a cat person. I was set on getting a black cat and naming her Saabbath. How narcissistic, right?! Actually, I was more of a copyCAT – Emily’s favorite was named Sabbath.
But while we were living at home with our parents we weren’t really allowed to have pets of our own. I tried to bend the rule when I bought a turtle but then it died the next day. Rest assured my parents did not murder it to teach me a lesson. God, no. It was just floating upside down in the deep part of its aquarium/terrarium the next morning. I was so sad, I didn’t think I deserved to ever have a pet again. :(
Until 2 years ago when I babysat Maxx’s dog for her and if you’ve been following me for a while now, you’d know the story. I fell in love with Charlie the Yorkshire Terrier and I cried when I realized I had to give her back. When Maxx heard about how upset I was, she surprised me with a beautiful baby pomeranian and I cried even more!! Shout out to my sweet sister, Maxx!! Shout out talaga?!?!? Ano to, radyo?! Chos.
As we are celebrating #JoeyBear’s 2nd birthday this Saturday, I want to dedicate this entire week to pets leading up to her special day!! Okay, well, maybe not the ENTIRELY about pets but I’m aiming to do at least one post a day about pets!! I turned out to be a dog person after all so I want to share some of the Internet’s most famous dogs with you guys!
Boo is officially the most searched dog on the Internet with a whopping 15 million likes on Facebook! His worldwide fame started in 2006 because of his unusually large head and cute haircut! He’s appeared on TV shows such as Good Morning America and Anderson Cooper’s RIDICULIST! He and his brother Buddy are super fluffy and cute, Maxx and I have been sending each other screencaps of their Instagram page for years! Follow them here.
Ginny used to be homeless, tied to a gate left for dead. Now she has over 300,000 followers on Instagram where her owner posts random photos of her. Her rescuer, Chelsea Hope-England says she started Ginny’s Instagram page, “because I am obsessed with her and to be honest she has a far more interesting life than I do.” Cute!!! Follow her on Instagram.
Menswear Dog is a 5 year old shiba inu living in NYC with a penchant for all things style. His interests include never washing his selvage denim, lurking around Soho for someone to notice his steez, and sniffing fine a$$ bitches. (source)
Beast the dog is a Puli, a type of Hungarian Sheepdog, and is most famous for being The Facebook Dog. Why is he called The Facebook Dog? Because he is Mark Zuckerberg’s dog!! He lives in Palo Alto with his billionaire parents. Be part of his 1 million plus followers on Facebook.
Marnie is another famous rescue dog. Adopted at 9 years old and is well-known for her Hanging Tongue Syndrome. My favorite photo series of her is that of her copying James Franco’s selfies!! Follow her on Instagram: @marniethedog.
