Ivy Diep found a homeless pup wandering the streets of Los Angeles in January of 2014. Starving, skinny, matted, and alone, she took took the scruffy pup, who she named Popeye, home with her. He instantly hit it off with her hubby and the other household pups.
One day she took Popeye along to one of her “Instagram dates” – get togethers with a friend where they try new restaurants and document their meals on social media … total #nomnomnom stuff. She realized that Popeye was a total gentlemen and polite little dinner date. “I would bring Popeye to any of the pet-friendly places, and we realized how good he was around food,” she told ABC News. “He would sit still for photos.” (I’ve known a lot of dogs, and I can tell you that is not the norm.)
The pup began making regular appearances in Diep’s #InstaFood pics, which led to her creating Popeye the Foodie Dog, an Instagram account dedicated to his foodie adventures. The ridiculously adorable page features pics of Popeye usually dressed in something cute, while he poses with plates of food. Steak to sushi, ice cream to pizza – he’s posed with it all! And for those of us trying ridiculously hard to grow our Instagram account, get this… he has more than 107k followers!
While it looks like he’s about to chow down, Diep says that’s not the case. He actually just likes to be out and about looking at people and food and barking at pups. So when it comes to his foodie adventures, he’s more about the adventure.
Now for the even more fun part: TONS OF POPEYE PICS!!
