Dogs deserve the whole world. They are so sweet, loyal, love you unconditionally, and never judge you. They can make any sour mood turn into a good one with just one wag of their tail. So, when it comes to celebrating the day your pup was born (or the day you adopted your dog), you need to return the favor with all the love and attention in the world. One way to do that is by putting an adorable pic of them on your Instagram along with special dog birthday quotes.

Obviously, you don't need to go out and throw a puppy party for your canine as well, but you definitely can, if that’s your thing. Call up their closest doggo friends, gather at a park, and have many treats on hand. If you’d rather just keep it between you two at your place, treats still need to be present, but grab a party hat and some of your favorite dog movies as well. While you’re cuddling close or partying it up, snap some lovable pictures of your fluffy friend. Post your fave snaps to the ‘Gram with any of these dog birthday captions.

The internet was made for happy dog pics, so you can easily gain some major likes with the right dog birthday Instagram captions paired with shots of their adorable face. Once all the posting is done, cap off the celebration with a homemade dog-friendly birthday cake your fur friend will woof a lot.
