What are babushka dogs? Well, babuska is the Russian word for “grandmother,” but can also refer to a head scarf tied around the chin. You also may have heard Russian nesting dolls referred to as “Babushka dolls.” Babushka dogs are like those dolls, but a million times better because they are DOGS.
We’re a 100% convinced that this is what dogs looked like in the Old Country, which would have made 3 daily meals of turnips and borscht much more bearable, in our opinion.
(*bonus FUN FACT: “The Kate Bush song ‘Babooshka’ and famed ‘If you like Pina Coladas!’ song tell the exact. same. story. These are the things you notice when you put on theme music and scroll an endless parade of perfect dog pics.)
