Doug the Pug doesn’t just wear flannel.

He’s no average dog, that’s for sure. Nashville native Doug the Pug entertains us with daily Instagram photos captioned with witty sayings. He’s been featured on Good Morning America for Halloween, he’s been on the best-seller book list in the New York Times, he’s been written about in Buzzfeed, Mashable, and he basically owns social media with his costumes and funny captions.

But he doesn’t just sit at Starbucks wearing flannel and drinking pugkin spice lattes. Nor does he spend all day on the couch in his robe eating pizza.

Doug the Pug has a closet full of pug-sized and canine-approved costumes for every occasion, even when it’s not Halloween.

He loves hot dogs…

Doug the Pug doesn’t really care what he wears, as long as there’s pizza involved. He stays up on the pop culture news and has been seen dressed up as Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, stealing John Legend’s wife, and recreating a Fall Out Boy music video. Basically anyone on the Billboard Hot 100 is up for grabs for Doug.
