While South Africa was in the midst of an apparent social media blackout, the world went on without us yesterday for #NationalSelfieDay.

Now we’re not here to talk about a made-up “day” and lots of pretty people on the internet taking pictures of themselves, no. We’re here to talk about something much more important: dogs.

Novelty account WeRateDogs hijacked the hashtag by asking people to send it selfies of dogs instead.

At the time of writing the account claims that they’ve received more than 6 000 pictures of good boys and girls and, while we haven’t counted them ourselves, we’ll trust them on this.
