I get excited for each month’s Instagram challenge, but this one was especially fun, mostly because it meant we got to look through over 7,500 of photos of adorable dogs, cats, birds, pigs and all sorts of other cute animals. If you ever need a little digital hug or pick me up, just search #DSPETS on Instagram — it’s an instant dose of cuteness. It was so hard choosing our top three for this challenge, but we made a decision, and our lucky winners are above and below. And because we couldn’t resist sharing a few more pets, we have 26 of our other favorites after the jump (I wanted to add 200 more). Thank you to everyone who took the time to share their furry friends with us. They’re all so lucky to have you as loving owners and families. xo, grace
*Thanks to West Elm for donating $50 gift cards to each of our winners! They’re having a pet party (with a pet Smilebooth and charity raising for The Sato Project) on April 13th. Click here to check it out.
