Bonus: The Trendiest Dog Name of All


One of the earliest Instagram canine sensations, Toast was a King Charles Spaniel that had a caramel-colored coat. Sadly, Toast passed away in 2017 but is survived by her sisters, who are on Instagram too.

The story of Toast, a puppy mill rescue pup,  gained momentum and spread all over the social media platform, where the dog came to be recognized and loved for her unique name and unusual facial features, especially her hanging tongue. You could pay tribute to this lovely dog by giving your pup her trendy name.
