    Doug the Pug

    Doug the Pug

    While most dogs have friends like the mailman, the kid next door, and the guy strolling down the street, this renowned dog has John Legend and Justin Bieber among his mates. He also starred alongside Demi Lovato in a Fall Out Boy video and was the topic of a TIME magazine story. Doug the Pug, a pug from Nashville, Tennessee, has obviously achieved superstar status.

    Doug the Pug would certainly brag about his huge social media following–he has 3.7 million Instagram followers alone–and several (yes, multiple) appearances in big music videos, daily talk programs, award shows, and more if he could talk.

    Pavlov the Corgi

    There are a few factors that contribute to the internet's existence. Cats, pizza, and corgis are among them. Pavlov, a California Corgi, gets the whole Instagram thing done down. He's been known to wear a flower crown, and he recently purchased one of those enormous, inflatable unicorn pool toys that every Instagram influencer practically lives in over the summer.

    Chewie the Pomeranian

    When Chad from Accounting requests a high-five, it's difficult to inspire excitement, but what if Chewie, the high-five Pomeranian, requested one? You'd most likely give him your happiest, most passionate high-five. Chewie not only loves to upload images of himself high-fiving, but he also likes to wear the smallest Hawaiian shirts. It's worth following just for the little clothes.
