Instagram's Newest Star, Yogurt the Pirate Dog, Almost Too Cute to Believe

We all know cuties like Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub can make a big splash on Instagram. But there are always challengers to the throne of the Internet's most adorable animal, and Yogurt the Pirate Dog is racking up followers and superlatives from Instagram's masses.

The account began in May, although Yogurt's human companion did not post any photos for a good five months afterwards. Perhaps after realizing he or she had a star on their hands, the frequency of posting pictures has increased in the past few days. Now you can see the one-eyed, long-tongued mini beast sporting outfits, running around with a bunny, and getting all cranky thanks to a vet appointment.

The swashbuckling 5-year-old Chihuahua calls Bangkok her home port, and has nearly 5,000 followers. And to call them enthusiastic would be an understatement. One person wrote on a photo, "I'm so happy to know that this little sweetie has such a good owner who loves her so much and who will never leave her. Yogurt is the happiest doggy ever. Wish you to stay this way forever!<3"

Why not walk the plank yourself, and plunge into the adorable life of Yogurt the Pirate Dog?
