Cute dogs in cups


Animals in cups has been a thing for a while. But a trend that started in the US has taken it to a new level.

The #MuttMuggins hashtag on Instagram is where people take a mug and a dog and place said mug in front of said dog to make it appear like it's actually tiny, when really it's not. It's merely a clever, but very cute, perspective trick.

You can see a selection of some of the best pictures below.

If you don't have a dog, a cat will also work.
