Rubee Twohig, 19, has always loved dogs.

So when a coworker suggested creating an Instagram page dedicated to Victoria’s four-legged friends, the 19-year-old jumped at the chance.

“I was working at a cafe job and a lot of dogs would come in and I’d do little mini doggie interviews,” says Twohig.

“Dogs have so many personalities and characteristics and finding them out and writing little blurbs about them is pretty fun,” adds Twohig.

Over the past year, there have been dogs of all shapes and sizes featured on the page, and the response has been nothing but positive from pet owners and fans alike.

“I think it’s a really cute and fun idea,” says dog owner Zoe Newsom.

“I think it’s something that can really brighten somebody’s day and it’s such a simple and cute idea,” adds Newsom.

“People seem to be really excited about it, especially in Victoria everyone has an Instagram account for their dogs,” smiles Twohig.

As for what makes a good feature dog?

“I would just say like friendliness from both the dog and the owner, I don’t want to approach a dog that’s really timid or shy,” says Twohig,  who always asks permission from dog owners before documenting their canines.

It’s been a fun pandemic pastime that Twohig hopes will continue to bring some smiles.

“It’s pretty silly but it’s pretty fun and I hope it makes people’s day,” says Twohig.
