It’s safe to say that everyone in the world is suffering from a similar feeling of uneasiness right now.
We don’t know how long we’ll have to stay indoors. We’re not sure if our jobs will hold out throughout this mayhem. And for many of us, we’re home with our families. Typically, this arrangement is wonderful. But after weeks of nowhere to go and no one to see, everyone’s bound to get a little stir-crazy.
And that’s where cute dog photos come in. There’s no shortage of sweet animals out there who are just so happy to be by your side throughout all of this.
Some dogs are actually well known due to their adorable photos and bubbly personalities. In 2020, “dog celebrities” are a real thing, and they’ve racked up plenty of followers for just being themselves.
In times like these, we need as many delightful dog photos as we can. Following some new-to-you dog celebrities is a great way to temporarily make you feel more at ease.
