First, a confession. I have a serious weakness for pugs and cute pug pictures. So much so that I actually became a pug owner myself a few years ago after living in Brooklyn. There is something about their adorable wrinkled faces, large eyes, stout bodies, and silly expressions that opens your heart to them and just elicits an uncontrollable “Awwwwwww.”

To make it easy on you, we’ve rounded up the 10 most popular pugs on Instagram that you need to start following now! Consider your daily cuteness quota met.
