Need a lift? I know a Samoyed who can help. If you like big, fluffy, white dogs with sweet faces and long pink tongues, head to Instagram for Maya the Samoyed’s account. Her owner (whom I’d hire to be my social media guru any day) has a knack for posting videos of the canine cotton ball eating treats, such as a wedge of golden watermelon, giant carrots and a banana, that never fail to make me laugh. Maya is perhaps one of the most photogenic dogs of all time; instagram.com/maya polarbear.
