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 and Bella (@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

A post shared by Doug The Pug (@itsdougthepug) on

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?

5 Fandom Friday: 5 Favorite Things I Own That I Bought at Cons

Five Fandom Friday

I’m not one to spend hundreds of dollars at cons each time I attend, but I do like to snag at least one awesome thing. I’ve probably attended about 10 cons in my life as I only really started going to them after college. Here are my five favorite things that I bought at cons (so far!).

Abe Lopez Batman Haunted Mansion

This signed “Haunted Arkham Asylum” print by Abe Lopez. It’s pretty much the best thing ever. I snagged it at Wondercon this year. It combines two of my favorite things: the Batman universe and Disney’s The Haunted Mansion ride!!

Pugs Book

I am completely in love/obsessed with pugs and I had to have this book when I saw it at Comikaze last year. It features a really cute and derpy pug, doing what they do best. Being cute and derpy. 😀 The author also signed it and made a small drawing on the inside. You can check out Dave Kellett’s stuff here.

Camille Rose Garcia 1st Edition Signed Snow White and Print

Camille Rose Garcia has been my favorite pop artist since high school when I saw her work featured in Nylon magazine. I have her first art book and the Alice in Wonderland book she illustrated that is like this Snow White one. I have always wanted to own one of her prints and this deal was pretty much the closest I could get currently. Snagged a signed first edition of her Snow White book along with a signed print at Comic-Con this year!

David Mack Kabuki The Alchemy

I met David Mack at Miami Supercon back in 2010. I was wandering through Artist’s Alley and his watercolor work caught my eye. I told him I thought his work was really beautiful and he was super sweet in response. I bought this version of Kabuki and he threw in a couple of the comics, signing everything. David is one of the most generous artists  out there. He’s featured in the documentary Temple of Art, which I am proud to have been a supporter of via Kickstarter. This year, I found him at Comic-Con and he signed my copy of Fight Club 2. He’s also very responsive on Twitter, which is awesome.

Tardis Blueprint Tank Top

Bought this Tardis tank from GeekyU at Comikaze and am super in love with it. I love nerdy tank tops and would much rather wear them than t-shirts, especially since I live in Southern California. The design of this shirt is really cool because it’s in that blueprint style, which is kinda popular right now. I’ve received lots of compliments on it too!

I’d love to see your favorite con purchases! Link me in the comments below!
