the dog days are nowhere near over.

Okay, stop. I can hear you whining about all the photos of animals showing up on your Instagram feed.

Seriously, guys, can you honestly say all those blurry pics on your feed of random friends you don't hang out with looking awkward in poorly lit bars are more interesting than a real-live hedgehog surfing on a banana peel? Well, if you do, than this isn't the story for you, and you can feel free to move on.

For the rest of you, I'd like you to meet my five favorite animals on Instagram. I think you guys will really get along.

Name: Tupac Shacorgi Instagram handle: @tupacshacorgi Vibe: Not your Queen's corgi. Oh, And Also: From the looks of things, he got down with an Affenpinscher on Cinco de Mayo.

Name: Darcy The Flying Hedgehog Instagram handle: @darcytheflyinghedgehog Vibe: Darcy's not messing around. The artsy gal only posts super curated images, often concealing herself in what would otherwise be a still life. We think it's safe to say she's ready for her solo exhibition at the Whitney. Oh, And Also: She has her own professional hedgehographer.

Name: Montjiro Instagram handle: @montjiro Vibe: Gucci Gucci, Louis Louis, Fendi Fendi, Prada Oh, And Also: Too busy to give a quote.

Name: Eddy & Rambo Bunny Instagram handle: @bunnymama Vibe: The very best of friends. Oh, And Also: They love parsley.

Name: Pudge Instagram handle: @pudgethecat Vibe: Laidback girl from Minnesota. Oh, And Also: That Face!
