While the rest of the world has sped into the digital era, we’ve seen a growing demand for publicity on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook erupting with new faces and personalities. And, like their human counterparts, our dogs want a place in the public eye as well.
While blogs have been a great outlet for publicizing our favored friends and associates, social media has become a great source for really defining the personality of a dog and even providing a little insight into what they are thinking.
Dogs as entertainers
We’ve all seen dogs rise in fame, often maintaining their actual names in the movies they’re acting in. https://twitter.com/#!/cookiedabooboo is a well renowned dog actor, making appearances on such television shows such as Desperate Housewives. But to really give the dog a voice, this Twitter site is dedicated to providing a voice for Cookie and effectively creating a character that enjoys telling its owner what to do (which many of our spoiled dogs enjoy doing).
Oprah is the rather foul-mouthed advocate of rapper 50 cent, often holding nothing back when it comes to offering an opinion. But, this just goes to show that even dogs have a few rights that we humans take for granted when it comes to speaking our minds. You can find this furry and funny minded dog on Twitter as http://twitter.com/oprahthedog. It’s definitely a site for anyone that enjoys a few laughs and entertainment.
Dogs in politics
One rare and rather surprising area to see a dog in is politics. While it’s a rather unique situation, dogs such as Sutter Brown have found their way into the top ranking official statuses of the world, and exhibit their profound desire to really press their views on life. Found at http://facebook.com/sutterbrown on Facebook, this four-legged politician really dishes out the facts and views regarding how a dog interprets the world, and provides plenty of insight concerning bone taxes and other doggy political processes. Combined with both humor and fact, this is a definite like for any dog owner.
Dogs represent: tumbler, schools, even blogs
Dogs are found in every aspect of life, even business and education. So, to provide a little doggy insight into these worlds, Tumbler has actually put a doggy advocate as a spokesdog for their business. http://tommypom.com/ is a site dedicated to the furry Pomeranian Tommy. Though small, this dog has a big voice, helping to endorse one of the fastest growing social media sites on the internet. Filled with pictures and blogs, you get a dog’s-eye-view of what it’s like working as an intern for Tumblr.
http://twitter.com/sullyburger is a site dedicated to the cutest of cute puppy mascots for the site Cuteness.com. This furry representative flaunts his cuteness to really provide the character that is needed to endorse a site that focuses on being cute. And what dog isn’t?
http://twitter.com/butlerblue2 is a Twitter site dedicated to the Butler University of Indiana, promoting the importance of education and its value to society. Full of school spirit, this bull dog is an excellent representative of determination and effort that is needed to accomplish any goal you set your mind on- for both dogs and people. He’s definitely something to like and admire, even if you don’t attend their school.
We can never forget those that represent the everyday dog-life, which is where such sites have dedicated time and effort to supporting their four-legged friends like Rocky the Chihuahua. These tales tell of Rocky’s adventures with his companion, and while fictional, are actually based on the everyday events that this clever pup enjoys taking advantage of. And you’d be surprised at what dogs can really get away with when you spoil them. The blogs http://blog.porchpotty.com/category/the-adventures-of-rocky/ really give an exotic outlook on the world through a dog’s eyes as they interact with companions and friends alike. Rocky is definitely mischievous in real life, and definitely shines as a bit of entertainment for the everyday dog lover.
Another site that definitely says: I think like a dog, is http://twitter.com/mikeythebrat , who does indeed live by his name. Full of sassy quotes and some great humor, this Twitter site is a favorite if you want to put a few words in your dog’s mouth.
Throughout the internet, you can find dogs representing anything from products to politics, giving dog owners something to really enjoy through a slight bit of dog humor and some interesting facts. These sites really give an effort in creating a dog’s character and personality, allowing us humans to associate ourselves with some of our best friends in the world: our dogs.
