The Literate Dogs of Instagram

Prepare for cuteness overload. Here are some dogs on Instagram who love to read.

“What? Can’t you see I’m reading?” Max does not like being interrupted in the middle of a Daphne du Maurier book.

This adorable fluffernutter’s name is Hermione. That is all.

Scruffy here loves a good intelligent coffee table book.


Pirate and his forever human are reading the #1 New York Times bestseller Do Unto Animals by Tracey Stewart.

After reading Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer, Dickens was thankful he lived in a country that doesn’t consume dogs as a rule of thumb.


Zissou stayed up all night reading Epitaph before finally nodding off.
