If there are two things dog people know, it’s that every dog is unique in their fluffy own way, and that every dog is the best dog.

Of course, every dog already knows this, but just in case, we asked you take to Instagram and compliment your dog. Now, not only does your dog know all of weird and potentially inappropriate compliments you give them, so does the rest of the world.

Here are 15 of our favorites:

15. Trevor

“It’s ok if you bark sometimes. You’re a guard dog, that’s your job, and I respect the hell out of it.”

14. Lena

“You can really rock those doggles, beans!”

13. Noodle

“You are such a good meatball, I would order you at Olive Garden. I want to put sauce on you.”

10. Doc

9. Ginger

“Ginger you’re so good at wearing hats, and that takes talent!”

8. Stogie

“Your stretch is the best stretch. Stogie, look at your trout mouth. Your trout mouth is the prettiest trout mouth. And look at those whiskers. They’re so whiskery!”

7. Lilly

“Lilly, you have the greatest hair. You look better in my glasses than I do. You have a great smile. You always finish my food. You’re the bestest dog ever. Thank you for being you!”

6. Emma

“Have you been on a cleanse? Oh my god, you’ve been killing it at SoulCycle. You’re gonna look so hot at Coachella.”
