If you’re on Instagram then you know what a big love fest it is on there amongst our furiends. If you are not on Instagram with your Shih Tzu. Why not? It is the perfect place to post all your 50 million pics of your Shih Tzu you have on your phone. Plus they are ADOABLE so get it started today.
Then all your friends and family have a place to go to see your cute pics. That’s why Akasha has an Instagram account. I would get texts from people wanting to see Akasha and asking me how she was doing. So I figured hey look… here is her online space where I’ll post ALL of Akasha’s pics. Go for it!
Fast forward and we had no idea what amazing friends and experiences we would have just by starting an account. It inspired our monthly Shih Tzu Socials in Houston. It inspired us to reach out to our Instagram friends when we travel. And next thing you know we are able to connect with other dog-lovers and most are also Shih Tzu obsessed like me!
Because of Instagram we’ve had afternoon playdates at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande-Lakes, a gigantic party at the dog park in California then brunch at Fashion Island, spent the afternoon drinking rosé by the pool at the super swanky Hotel ZaZa, and we meet up across the country at Blog Paws in Myrtle Beach with lots of Instagram friends in real life! YAAAS! (and we even end up being roomies with one of our Instagram pals there.)
The love and friendship that has happened because of this app fills my heart with so much gratitude. That, on top of the love Akasha spreads is what keeps us always grateful.
For Akasha’s 2nd birthday I went ALL out for her birthday party on Instagram. I took photos of her with all kinds of birthday props (yes even a little piñata). Then I posted throughout the day as the party progressed. Through the announcement, cake, the dance party, then posted in a video all our friends that used her hashtag throughout the day. Scroll down her feed, you wont be able to miss it. Lots of pink and a large 6-tile photo of her in her party dress.
It was quite a day! All while walking Akasha, and playing games with her. So you can go BIG like I did on her 2nd birthday, or you can go smaller, like I’m doing today on her 4th birthday. The fun part is to be engaged with everyone who comments and wishes your Shih Tzu a happy birthday. And sending more love back is fun too!
This takes time, I totally get it. You can schedule the Instagram party on the weekend when you have more time just like you would a birthday party in real life.
Today is Akasha’s 4th birthday!
My love is growing up! Today I posted a photo mashup of her in her Birthday Queen bandana. To the tune of Beastie Boys, The New Style. She just got a new hairstyle so that made sense. You can see it @loveakasha on Instagram.
So these are a couple of ways you can celebrate your Shih Tzus birthday on Instagram. Share the love of your Shih Tzu!
