North Texas Animals Actually Worth Following On Social Media.

We sure love our pets here in Dallas — to the point that we're willing to drop $26,000 if we think there's even a possibility that they might be sick.

Naturally, because it's 2015, we also like to bog down our social media accounts with more pics of our pets than probably most of our friends can handle. We don't really care, though. Dogs look cute in scarves, y'know?

Really: Pet Instagram accounts are at least a little more enjoyable than seeing yet another string of selfies taken in front of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge or that giant eyeball at The Joule. Hence this list of some of our favorite North Texas pets — and other animal-friendly feeds — with their own social media accounts.

Bentley.

To quote his owner — one Nina Pham — Bentley may be negative for Ebola, but the two-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is “positive for adorbola.”

Marshall Seguin.

Like his famous hockey-playing dad Tyler, this chocolate lab is busiest when the Stars are playing, tweeting almost exclusively about his game day naps and congratulating his pops when he scores.

Winspear and Amani.

The Dallas Zoo's official Instagram account is worth a follow in its own right, sure, but it's the pictures of #bff exhibitmates Winspear the cheetah and Amani the black Labrador that most consistently have us double-tapping. C'mon Dallas Zoo: Give these two their own account already.

Nelson.

Hands down the coolest pup in Dallas is Nelson, the going-on two-year-old Goldendoodle that can be seen puttering around town in the sidecar of his owner's motorcycle and always wearing his trademark Doggles. He's, um, bad to the bone. Oh, and his brother Walter the Wolfhound has his own account, too.

Benjamin.

A little backstory: Ben hails from Korea where he escaped from a restaurant that was going to serve him up as food. He lost his eyes in the process. These days, however, the resilient pup is thrilled with his new Dallas digs and typically sports a huge grin in most of his photos.

Art Ortiz.

Not a dog himself, per se, Art Ortiz of Dallas is a dog walker and urban trainer often seen around town walking a huge pack of pups.

C.A.R.E..

Do you like pics of lemurs getting their toenails painted or tigers munching on pumpkins? The Center for Animal Research & Education is a non-profit in Bridgeport that cares for big cats and other exotics. And, really, this Instagram account gives a more up-close and hands-on look at these magnificent creatures than the zoo's.

Kolache.

Kolache is a two-year-old French bulldog from Dallas with an affinity for wearing hoodies and rolling her big bug eyes when people think she's a boy.

Mochi, Taro and Kuma Bear.

Here's an account with more bang for your buck. Between the three of them, at least one of these boxers is always up to something interesting. Just remember: Mochi is the squishiest one; Taro is the pointy-eared one; and Kuma Bear is the biggest one.

Walker Texas Ranger Danger.

Like his profile says, Danger is this pup's middle name. His last name, of course, is Fabulous. Anybody that's seen that glorious mop of hair knows what I'm talking about.

Pets Who Party.

These Dallas sisters paint watercolors of their clients' pets — in party mode — and post the oft-humorous results online. Because pictures of strangers' cats are always better when they're eating Cheetos and Jim Beam.

Dallas Mini Pigs.

You need more pigs in your life, and these pampered, city-dwellers are just so stinking cute.

Rosie and Winnie.

Winnie the terrier mix and Rosie the poodle are an adorable pair of rescues that quickly bonded over the fact that they both prefer Dallas lapdog living to life on the streets. Besides, not having to worry where their next meal is coming from has freed them to spend their time on more important activities — like snuggling up on each other.

Dallas Pets Alive.

Aside from being loaded with pics of adorable local pooches, the Instagram account of local nonprofit Dallas Pets Alive also frequently features animals that are up for adoption and flyers for local pet-friendly events.
