Country music stars love their dogs and cats. And there are a couple of country stars who actually have official Instagram channels just for their dogs. Miranda Lambert does so much for dogs all over the country with her Muttnation Foundation, which raises money and encourages people to adopt shelter animals. Miranda has many dogs, including Delta, Thelma, Louise, Cher, and many more. In July, Lambert shared her sorrow after she lost her dog Thelma.

She wrote on Instagram at the time, sharing several images of her beloved dog, “May 1, 2016, I adopted 2 beautiful Great Pyrenees named Thelma and Louise to watch over one of my happiest places on earth. My farm outside of Nashville. The Kitties, chickens, and mini horses needed to be looked after, and these 2 girls have done that since the day we brought them home. They rode on my bus all the way from Dallas to Nashville, and on that 10-hour drive, I fell in love with them. Yesterday, we had to say goodbye to our sweet Thelma. She spent her days lounging in the barn and her nights keeping watch over all of us. She lived the last 8 years with no fences, just freedom to do what she did best. Love and protect. I loved her with all my heart.”

She continued, “Louise has retired from her farm duties and is getting all the more love and snuggles from Delta, Bellamy, Cher, Brendan, and me. It hurts so bad to say goodbye to these sweet companions, but their love is always worth it. How lucky are we to get to have friends like Thelma? I am so proud to have been part of her story. Thank you to my friends and farm managers Julia and Tommy for taking such good care of her and every one of my fur babies and loving them like they are your own. We all miss you, Telm Telm (broken heart emoji). Y’all don’t forget, love a shelter pet.”

Surprisingly, in my research for this story, I could not find any of Lambert’s dogs or cats or, for that matter, horses who had their own Instagram account. Maybe she doesn’t want to favor one over the other. However, Muttnation Foundation does have an Instagram handle.

Then there is Kelsea Ballerini, who adopted her dog Dibbs as a puppy and gave him his name after she charted a song called “Dibbs” in 2015 that went all the way to number one. In one of my first interviews with Kelsea during that time, I actually met the sweet pup, and well, he broke our new office in, if you know what I mean. It was pretty funny.

Ballerini constantly posts about her pooch on her social media, but Dibbs, as famous as he is, does not have his own Instagram account. Maybe his mom is waiting on that one.

So, what country stars have official Instagram accounts for their pups? Here are three of them. Let’s take a look at those accounts and the famous parents.

    Not long ago, she posted along with a video of her giving her pup treats, saying, “Go easy,” and then, “That’s a good way to do it, yeah,” as the dog worked to not snip at her, “Dolly Mama’s Doggy Training. I think @btkthefrenchie deserves a new toy!”

    Parton also celebrated her buddy a few days ago. “She wrote, It’s our favorite day of the year! Happy #NationalDogDay to all our Doggy Partoners (paws emoji). Shop our new Red Fur-Trimmed Cowboy Hat at the link in our story!”

    As for Porter’s own Instagram handle, it’s simply @porterthedog, and his Instagram features many posts of the dog asking “dad” to pay him, his many escapades, and the famous people he meets now and then, like a few weeks ago when Dad hung out with Gavin Degraw.
