10 Pugs on Instagram You Should be Following

Do you like pugs? If you said ‘no,’ we probably can’t be friends.

You see, I have an obsession with pugs. I am what you might call, ‘pugsessed.’

I can’t get enough of their cute, smushed up, derpy little faces. And all those rolls! And their curly tails! And…ok let me stop right now before I get carried away.

But seriously, I LOVE pugs. And I don’t even own one. YET.

I can, however, live vicariously through other people who do.

Instagram is full of pugs. And it’s where I spend most of my days oogling and crying over the pugs of the world.

In fact, I probably follow more pugs than people.

“But, Liana,” you might say. “There are hundreds or probably even thousands of pugs on Instagram. Which ones should I follow?”

Well, the honest answer is…ALL OF THEM. ALL OF THE PUGS!

But I understand not everyone is as pugsessed as me. And for that reason, I put together a little list of the 10 pugs on Instagram you should be following.

These are some of my favorites, for various reasons (and in no particular order). And hopefully, they may become some of your own.

Without further ado, may I introduce:

1. Mr. Pickles and Bella

Hi 👋 #pugstagram

A post shared by Mr Pickles & Zander (@mrpickles_and_bella) on

Mr. Pickles and Bella are a fawn and black puggy pair owned by known pug aficionado and illustrator, Gemma Correll. Follow their adventures around Oakland, CA and across the world as they travel with their mom and dad.

2. Percy the Pug

A young, UK, fawn pug, Percy the Pug always looks dapper in one of his bowties. You never know what he’s going to get up to next from having pool parties to carrying the rings for a wedding.

3. Doug the Pug

Probably the most famous pug of all, Doug the Pug is the king of social media…and pop culture. He has his nose to the ground when it comes to the latest trends and even got Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness to officiate his mom and dad’s wedding!

4. Loulou the Pug

Loulou is the most adorable baby girl pug. Like seriously. Just look at her. 😍 I love her Instagram for all its vibrancy and colors. Plus, she loves to dress up and looks especially pretty in her puggy hats and flower crowns.

5. Butch Cassidy the Pug

Butch Cassidy is probably one of the most majestic pugs I have ever seen. I mean…he’s just stunning. As such, he was the star of the BBC2 Documentary ’10 Puppies & Us,’ and even does modeling and stunts! What a professional!

6. Sir Sauerkraut

Sir Sauerkraut is an older, California-based puggy with lots of personality. His Instagram handle is @pugridesshotgun because he gets to ride up front with his ma. He’s also got a thing for sharks, and like Percy the Pug, rocks a mean bow tie.

7. Milo & Otis the Pug Walsh

Milo & Otis are actually both pugs despite the fact that they’re named after a dog and cat movie from the late 80s. These fun guys love dress up and have crazy pool parties with all their puggy friends. Plus they almost always have their sad, pug face on so you can’t help but say “awww,” through their entire Instagram feed.

8. Brandy the Pug

Brandy the Pug is probably the most impressive of all the pugs on this list. Not only can she swim with the best of them, she actually hikes, surfs, and snowboards. She has competed in the World Dog Surfing Championships (placing 3rd) and is even sponsored by GoPro!

9. Lil Pickles Da Pug

Lil Pickles gives new meaning to the pug loaf. He has rolls for days and is super chubs. In fact, he’s often seen looking longingly at something, which is most likely tasty food of some kind. He makes me giggle and has some of the funniest outfits I’ve seen on a pug.

10. The Pugdashians

Despite your opinion on the actual Kardashians, I don’t think you’ll have any trouble getting behind the Pugdashians. These three sisters do everything together, and their humans often dress them alike too despite them being different ages. The youngest, Tilly is a prize-winning show pug while the other two are more into that snuggle-life. Plus their whole family works with a pug rescue in Maine so they’re even philanthropic like their human counterparts.

Are you going to follow all these fabulous puggies on Instagram? Which one was your favorite?


My blog was nominated for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award!

I was very pleased to find out yesterday that my blog was nominated for The Dragon’s Loyalty Award by Travelling In My Bookcase, a fellow tabletop gamer and avid book reading blogger! Thank you my dear!

Dragon's Loyalty Award

The Dragon’s Loyalty Award is an award for the loyal fan/commenter, whether the recipient is a fellow blogger or just someone who follows and comments regularly. 

The rules for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award are:

1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and a link back.
3. You must share  7  things other bloggers may not know about you.
4. Nominate up to  15  bloggers for Dragon’s Loyalty Award, provide a link to their blogs in your post, and notify them on their blogs.
5. Copy and paste the award somewhere on your blog.

So my dear readers, here are seven juicy things you may not know about me:

1. I have absolutely no tattoos, but have 9 ear piercings and my nose is pierced. I usually only wear earrings in about 4 of the 9 ear piercings and have a tiny silver star in my nose at all times.

2. I don’t remember my first kiss or who it was with. I’m not sure what that says about me, but I guess it wasn’t very memorable. Oh well!

3. I named my first cat Sherlock after Sherlock Holmes…when I was six. My Dad was an English teacher and I loved the Sherlock Holmes mysteries. I’m still very much into mystery and am definitely a fan of the BBC series with Benedict Cumberbatch.

4. I really, really dislike and am kind of afraid of kangaroos. I get that it’s pretty much an irrational fear, but not if I came across one in the Australian outback! I think it’s their giant legs and tiny arms. It’s like a miniature T-Rex without the giant teeth and aggression. Plus what’s with their pouchy thing and their 3 VAGINAS?! Come on now…I can barely handle having one.

5. My first nerdy love was probably reading, followed by Star Trek: TNG. I am lucky and have highly educated parents with good taste.

6. I had a phase in high school where I was obsessed with Tinkerbell. I started a band with some friends and we called ourselves Tink & The Lost Boys.

7. If there were no health repercussions from it, I would eat pizza every single day. The more toppings the better.

Ok, so I have to nominate a bunch of people now. You’re all so awesome though!

1. The Nerds of Color
2. Metal and the Geek
3. Schtick & Substance
4. Giirl Gone Geek
5. Rebekka Lien
6. The Belle Jar
7. You Fancy Me Mad
8. De Pepi
9. How to Fan Girl
10. Geek and Prosper

Now be off and spread the love with more of your fellow bloggers! ❤
