“Part bat, part pig, part alien. 100% cute.”

This fashionista is here to slay! Donatella the miniature French bulldog is one stylish city girl with real modeling experience. Yep, you read that right, she’s the real deal. This superstar has boatloads of sass and more outfits than we can count, and she rocks every single one of them.

You’ll love Donatella’s account if you follow other influencers or fashion lines. You can tell she’s extra to the core — her page is all glam and pink and oh-so-fabulous. She serves up a chic new look nearly every day, so you won’t be kept waiting either. A star has to know how to please her fans, after all! And there’s no doubt that Miss Donatella the Frenchie is the brightest star of all.


This sweet bully boy is breaking stereotypes one smile at a time. Baloo is a 2-year-old rescued American Staffordshire terrier and red heeler mix with a gorgeous, unique look you’ll never forget. He and his mom are huge advocates for “bully” breeds, including the American bulldog, the American pit bull terrier, and the cane corso, among many others.

In his impressive Instagram portfolio, you’ll find Baloo showing off his agility skills, extensive wardrobe, and signature bunnylike red ears. Each new post is a total surprise — from canine couture to travels to silly faces — so you never know what you’ll find next from Baloo! But one thing’s for sure: You’ll always be smiling.


This 6-year-old lady is spreading the smiles one cuddle after another. Sadie the golden retriever is playful, sweet, and oh-so-fluffy. She’s a pro in front of the camera and has kisses to spare, which is as true to her breed as she could be. The other golden retriever in her house is her beloved plushie, appropriately named Bestie, who often makes appearances in photos.

This AKC-certified golden girl is full of love, not only for her followers but for her little human brother as well. If you keep up with this family gal on Instagram, you’ll often find these two playing in the snow and napping together. So cute!


If you can’t get enough of those cozy winter vibes, this account will be a double win for you. The gorgeous photography, beautiful home, and natural color scheme complement the rugged beauty of the Husky Squad themselves: Tidus, Yuna, Kimahri, and Nikolai, the newest addition to the pack. You’ll be blown away by their modeling talent and stunning eyes, but if that doesn’t get you, their love for their human parents certainly will.

The Husky Squad are also behind the Kibble to Raw meal plan, which may interest you if you’re considering raw food for your pet — just don’t forget to consult your vet, too! Check out the huskies’ Instagram page to keep up with their treats, trends, and total cuteness.


You asked for adorable dog pictures, and now you’ve got ’em. Reagan the Labradoodle is a whole dose of cute on his own, but your heart will melt when you see him with his favorite people — his family’s foster kids! This pup’s family is a huge supporter of foster care and adoption, and who doesn’t love a dog with a cause?

Reagan’s best friend Little Buddy was officially adopted by the family a few years ago, so now they get to hang out all the time with their silly antics and their matching shirts. They go on all kinds of adventures together (with an adult and a camera not far behind) and continue to spread joy wherever they go. Give Reagan a follow!

Can dogs eat seafood? Yes, if you follow these tips
If your pup likes it, then why not make it a snack for them?

Dog food isn’t just chicken and rice. As healthy as these staples may be, variety is just as important when it comes to creating a balanced meal for your fur baby. There are many safe and nutritious protein alternatives to chicken or your regular dog food, including turkey, beef, eggs, and even fish. Yep — fish.
Many people foods are known to be safe for dogs, but seafood doesn’t usually make the list. Fish certainly isn't the most popular food for dogs, which might have left you wondering: Can dog eat seafood? Is seafood bad for dogs?

Can dogs eat seafood?
Absolutely! Dogs can eat seafood, but only when it’s prepared correctly. The meat of many fish species contains healthy fats and nutrients such as omega-3s that are great for a dog’s coat, but you must be extremely careful not to feed your dog certain parts of the fish, including bones — or shells, in the case of shellfish. Any seafood your pup gets also needs to be completely cooked, or you run the risk of bacterial or parasitic infection.

Yep, a dog with its tongue out is enough to break the internet!

It's pretty dang cute, after all, but it's not always easy to figure out why a dog's tongue is sticking out. Don't worry though, pet parents — this is a great place to start. This is everything you need to know about bleps and what they mean.

Is your dog drinking Christmas tree water? It could be more dangerous for their health than you realize
What you should know about this not-so-good behavior

Bringing home a fresh-cut Christmas tree is only one way to get into the holiday spirit, but it could cause a problem for your pets. Not only will you need to make sure no one relieves themselves on the tree (in their defense, it is a tree), but you'll also need to keep them away from the water.
Dogs drinking Christmas tree water may seem completely logical, but it could also lead to a wide variety of unpleasant side effects for them and for you. Keep scrolling to learn why Christmas tree water could be dangerous for your pup and what you can do to keep your doggo from bothering the tree — all while keeping your Christmas tree healthy, of course!
Protecting your pets this holiday season will help you let go of your worries and enjoy every festive moment so you and your family can have a very merry Christmas!

Why is Christmas tree water bad for dogs?
Even though you may use plain water to keep your tree hydrated during the holiday season — which the National Christmas Tree Association recommends — it’s not a good idea for your dog to drink it. According to the National Capital Poison Center (NCPC), a small amount of tree water may not cause any issues, but it could become a real problem if your pup makes a habit of it. Granville Veterinary Clinic notes that lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, and other behavioral changes can be some of the signs of poisoning from Christmas tree water.
Water that sits in a tree stand for even a day or two can gather lots of bacteria and other nasty particles, according to NCPC (not to mention the pine needles that will likely fall into the water — they can be sharp). It’s easy to see why this concoction could be dangerous when swallowed. Hartz notes that fir tree oil can also be mildly irritating to dogs, too, whether ingested or simply touched. It makes sense -- even some people experience allergies and irritation around these trees!
Sometimes, Christmas tree farms use preservatives to help their firs and spruces last. NCPC explains that commercial preservatives often contain "some kind of fertilizer, some type of sugar, and perhaps fungicides." This can seep into the water, which could cause mild to severe illness in pets.
Homemade fertilizers and pesticides can make an appearance, too. NCPC lists these common ingredients in DIY tree food:
