As one who believes that perhaps the primary value of social media is to spread cute dog pictures far and wide, I always feel blessed to find an account curated by someone who appears to share my values and priorities. For example? The Instagram account of chiweenie (chihuahua/Dachshund) Mrs. Flans, curated by her caretaker, Linda Alvarez, brings cuteness by the handful. Mrs. Flans, rescued from a backyard breeder, is albino and deaf as a result of her breeding; she also has the ears of a bat, one good eye, and a tongue that seems to perpetually stick out. Despite her rough past, however, she now lives quite the interesting and pampered life, as her photos will attest.
