Instagram pet influencer’s cute, funny, sassy, and a little melodramatic when her breakfast gets served two minutes late—but that’s exactly what audiences love about Winnie the Cattle dog.

  1.  Tika the Iggy | @tikatheiggy

Tika’s pet parents have acknowledged that she’s quite the diva in real life—and it’s that type of persona paired with her impeccable fashion choices that have turned her into a social media sensation

Being an Italian greyhound (essentially, a desert dog) who lives in the colder temperatures of Montreal has turned into the perfect runway for her to strut her style while keeping warm, which is vital to her health. From French tulle to faux fur and designer bags, the fashion police would be saluting her every style choice.
