Originally started as a simple Instagram account to show off her Chow Chow, Lexi, @lexithechow has grown into an epic narrative following the young pup’s coddled life.
“I started taking and posting photos of Lexi on my own Instagram last year,” explained owner, Michelle. “She was too cute not too. I quickly understood moms on Facebook who post incessantly about their kids….I couldn’t stop!”
Since the account went live, Lexi’s popularity has made her somewhat of a viral sensation.
“I was very aware that this was probably annoying for a few of my followers so I created a separate account for Lexi, so only people who want to follow her could follow,” elaborated Michelle. “Didn’t realize that 30,000+ people would hit follow!!!”
A fan of Chow Chow dogs already, Michelle says that it felt like fate when she went to adopt Lexi.
“I got her when she was already one year old,” explained Michelle. “Someone I knew got her and couldn’t keep her for personal reasons. I was obsessed with chow chows for YEARS. When I heard that she was looking for a home it felt like destiny!”
When she isn’t out achieving internet glory, Lexi loves beef liver treats, sleeping (with lots of snoring!) and dipping her paws into water. Lexi truly is just a dog loving life and relishing every moment of it.
