These pups take poops in handbags that cost more than your rent.
When Rich Kids of Instagram hit the Web, it gave us mere plebeians and serfs a glimpse into how the children of the 1 percent spend their time and their money. But what about the furry companions of the wealthy?
With so many pets getting their moment of viral fame thanks to the photo-sharing app, isn’t it about time that four-legged companions of the rich and famous get their own digital shrine to extravagance? Enter Rich Dogs of Instagram.
Established by Elite Daily writer Kaylin Pound, the feed gives followers a chance to see just how privileged the life of wealthy pooches can be. From using a pair of Valentino slingbacks as chew toys to enjoying chef-prepared meals while flying on private jets, there is truly no luxury too expensive for these canines.
“Seeing all of that frivolously spent money made me feel like I needed to do something to make the world a better place,” Pound wrote on Elite Daily. “Therefore, I did the most logical thing I could think of: I set out to find the most badass dogs on the planet and put them all on one hilarious Instagram account for your viewing pleasure.”
Since she began the account in late February, it’s taken off, amassing nearly 15,000 followers in less than a month. Though her original posts consisted of aggregated photos, it’s now become so popular that Pound has a multitude of owners trying to get their posh pet featured. “Thanks to all of the people that have been sending me images, I am now strictly posting submissions,” she told Business Insider.
Before you begin sulking that you’ll never be able to afford all the luxury handbags, Lamborghinis, and champagne these pups are lavished with, take solace in the fact that it’s all for a good cause. According to Business Insider Kaylin has teamed up with New York City’s Posh Pets Rescue to help spread awareness about dogs that are simply looking for a good home, regardless of price tag.
