There are few greater pleasures of the modern world than Instagraming selfies of yourself and your dog. No wonder our pals in the celebrity universe have taken to this particular trend with all the veracity of a pooch attacking a particularly tasty bowl of Pedigree Chum.
What's more, stars tend to be a bit more candid when they're posing with their four-legged friends. Whether they're make-up free (Selita Ebanks), pulling a silly face (Lena Dunham) or getting right up close to the camera (Gisele Bundchen), there's something about being snapped alongside their dogs that makes famed names let their guard down a little.
