So, ready to bulk up your "following" list on Instagram? Check out these 16 adorable doggie Instagrams you should be following.

    While most doggos can say they're pals with the mailman, the kid next door, and that person walking down the sidewalk, this famous dog's crew includes John Legend and Justin Bieber. Oh, and he's also appeared in a Fall Out Boy video alongside Demi Lovato and was the subject of a TIME magazine feature. Needless to say, Doug the Pug, a pug from Nashville, Tennessee, has reached celebrity status.

    If Doug the Pug could talk, he'd probably also brag about his impressive social media following–with 3.7 million followers on Instagram alone–and multiple (yes, multiple) appearances in major music videos, daily talk shows, award shows, and more.

    Did you know the name Maya actually translates to "FLUFF?" OK, it doesn't really, but dang this doggy is the definition of fluffy!

    Maya, a two-year-old Samoyed with 1.1 million Instagram followers, loves to frolic in water fountains, nom on humans' snacks, and balance dog treats on her head like a pro. Did we mention she's also really, ridiculously fluffy?

    Django and Chloe, two best pupper pals residing in Rio de Janeiro, are giving Aspen the Mountain Pup a real run for his money as "most enviable doggy traveler." Not only do they love to share gorgeous photos of Rio's white, sandy beaches and crystal clear water with their 18,000 followers, but they've also traveled to France, Spain, Portugal, Austria, and other countries. Suffice it to say: These dogs have more passport stamps than most humans!

    There are a few things that make up the very being of the internet. Those things include cats, pizza, and corgis. And Pavlov, a Corgi from California, has this whole Instagram thing down. He has tons of contemplative photos in front of interesting, artsy walls, he's been known to rock a flower crown, and he recently got one of those giant, inflatable unicorn pool toys that every Instagram influencer basically lives in during the summer.

    It's really hard to muster enthusiasm when Chad from Accounting wants a hi-five, but if Chewie, the hi-five Pomeranian, wanted one? You'd probably give him the happiest, most enthusiastic hi-five of your life. Not only does Chewie post tons of pictures hi-fiving, but he loves to rock the tiniest Hawaiian shirts, too. The tiny shirts alone are worth a follow.

    Most best friends get their quality time in by knocking back a few glasses of wine while watching reruns of their favorite trashy TV shows. Not Cooper and Capo! These Aussies prefer to live it up in the woods of North Carolina and have some seriously enviable outdoor adventure pictures to prove it.

    It's not often you get a glimpse into royal life, but King Kingsley, a Mini Long-Hair Dachshund, is clearly a pupper of the people. He shares daily photos of the luxe life–including lounging in bed with snacks and dressing up for special events–so we common folk can see what it's really like to live like a royal.

    Hey, the Royal Family doesn't allow anyone to have social media, so we'll take what we can get.
