Through all the negativity and performativity on social media, posts about dogs remain the best reason to have an account. That’s why I pretty much exclusively follow shelters and animal influencers on Instagram. It makes all the noise worth it.
Just to bring some joy to your day, here are 16 of this month’s amazing posts from Twitter, Tik Tok, and Reddit featuring excellent puppers.
