About You Are Dog Now

“I make you dog” is the bold claim of this Twitter feed that went viral at the beginning of 2016, due to some features in Huffington Post and Mashable that told the world how you can simply follow and submit a selfie to @youaredognow and, sure enough, you will see a post with you and your doggie doppelgänger. As you can imagine, the followers quickly racked up, and that level of notoriety pushed You Are Dog Now to start including posts with celebrity “woofalikes,” including people like President Obama, Chris Pratt, and Justin Timberlake. If you have always dreamed of living a dog’s life, @youaredognow gives you a good glimpse of what that would look like!
