This Instagram of dogs eating gently is your new relaxation happy place

You haven’t reached the end of the internet until you’ve seen this relaxing Instagram account where sweet and mild-mannered pooches eat treats, noms, and fuds gently… oh so gently. They’re so sweet and so relaxing and ZZzzzzzz…
