There’s a new rising star on Instagram, and he’s only one year old and walks around on four legs. It’s Trotter, a San Francisco-based French Bulldog owned by photographer Sonya Yu. Six months ago, Yu — a professional food photographer — began dressing Trotter up in various costumes and snapping clever portraits of the outfits.
“Doggie Style” is a cute series of fashion photos shot by photographer Emily Shur for Paper Magazine. They’re pretty different from ordinary fashion photos: Shur had her human models face backwards while holding dogs facing forwards. She writes,
This shoot was presented to me with this image of my husband and The Baroness as the impetus and inspiration. A lot of these dogs belong to friends. Some I found via friends. All in all it was such a funny day and shoot. I loved it… even when one dog, who will remain unnamed, peed on my softbox.
Check out this Humunga Stache dog toy — it’s a rubber ball toy that adds some culture to photos of your dog by giving it a massive mustache. They cost $10 each over on Amazon.

P.S. According to customer reviews, the toy apparently isn’t very durable — even more of a reason to use it as a photo prop rather than a dog toy.
