Let's All Live Vicariously Through The Rich Dogs Of Instagram
You know them by their fast cars, hot women, private jets and expensive leashes. We're not talking about Christian Grey wannabes but the rich dogs of Instagram.
Elite Daily writer Kaylin Pound launched Rich Dogs of Instagram last week, and it's quickly become our favorite thing on the Internet (aside from #dressgate). It's a riff off of the Rich Kids of Instagram, which shows wealthy, trust-fund kids pouring champagne all over each other and flying on private helicopters. While those photos make us gag, we actually enjoy scrolling through these snapshots of dogs living the life of the 1 pupcent.
These pooches hang out at the Hotel Bel-Air, decked out in Chanel, lounging on yachts and chugging bubbly. Some look like they might be wolves of Wall Street, others are straight-up Cali but one thing is for sure: all these pups are first-class citizens of Chillsville, USA.
