A Pet's Guide to Taking the Perfect Selfie

Most cats and dogs may not have their own Instagram or Snapchat accounts, but we know they dominate yours! And, of course, a staple of Internet photo sharing is the selfie. Selfies, for those not in the know, are self-portrait photos typically taken with a smartphone. They're all the rage among the human (and animal) set. We asked our Facebook fans to submit their pets' best selfies — and we're sharing our favorites.

Strike a pose with your besties.
