Excuse us. We know there are some really serious and important things going on in the world right now: Brexit is a shamble, the US election race is on, the Rugby World Cup is happening and so on.
And these things deserve time and attention because they are important. But sometimes… one just really wants to tune out from the news and focus on something that may be considered a tad frivolous.
Like dissecting which Bachelorette contestant you’d date, rating cheesy Christmas movies or discussing what you’d do with your money when you win Powerball. (Definitely buying some swanky Italian property porn, for me!)
But there’s one thing we really like to do in our spare time: Looking at dogs doing cute things on Instagram. And this is totally okay (we tell ourselves again and again).
Dogs are, not-quite-literally-but-nearly-there, little rays of sunshine. And when a smiling, care-free Labrador or Dachshund pops up on our Sunday arvo feed, our it’s-nearly-Monday sob fest eases a little. So we’ll keep following cute dog accounts, thank you very much.
Now there are a frillion dog Instagram accounts out there, including one my sister made for our now-passed dog, Bella, who had a whopping 14 followers and used to give shout-outs.
But do you know whose dogs don’t have 14 followers? Kylie Jenner’s dogs. Katy Perry’s dog. Or any celebrity dog, for that matter.
Here’s our pick of the very good boys and girls who deserve a follow:
Katy Perry’s dog – @officialnuggetperry
Katy Perry’s dog’s Instagram was launched at a certainly, erm, convenient time for the singer.
@officialnuggetperry was apparently launched ahead of the release of her ‘Small Talk’ music video, but we’re not complaining.
Look. At. This. Good. Boy.
