Today we got the honor of interviewing Lisa (Mr. Pink, Nita & Vinnie's Human). You can find a direct link to their Instagram here.

Here is their story:

Can you tell us about your journey to becoming a dog influencer? What inspired you to start sharing your dog's adventures on social media?

Godfrey: Mr. Pink’s story is an interesting one. He was owner surrendered at Philadelphia animal shelter in 2020. We adopted Pink from a suburban animal rescue, desiring a snuggler and wanting to add a third dog to our pack. As an animal photographer I found him visually interesting because of his tiny size. Three weeks after adoption, Mr. Pink’s behavior changed, as is common for a rescued dog. I immediately enlisted the help of a behaviorist and veterinarian. She said Mr. Pink was terrified. We started taking a cooperative care approach with Mr. Pink and his behavior reverted back to a sweet little guy. He is still wary of strangers, but will warm up to people if given the chance.

Mr. Pink hikes, paddles, snowshoes and camps with us. The outdoors soothe him. Mr. Pink loves doing big dog things and going on adventures. Pink loves to hike on his own little paws and has done a few 7 mile hikes.

Mr. Pink is 3.75lbs. He is half the size of a normal Chihuahua. His tiny size does come with some challenges. Mr. Pink has a few neurological ticks, including prancing in place when he is happy.

I started @smallest.of.the.small to spread joy comparing Mr. Pink's tiny size to the big world. Pink's story is one of overcoming adversity - a thrown away dog to finding a loving home. There needs to be more love & joy in the world.

What do you think sets your dog apart from other dogs on social media? What makes them unique or particularly interesting to your followers?

Godfrey: Mr. Pink is a tiny 3.75lb Chihuahua. He is an adventure dog. Pink goes everywhere my big dogs go - Hiking, camping, paddling. Pink travels with his tiny tent (don't worry he always sleeps with us). I also create tiny planet reels with Mr. Pink. People seem to really respond to the tiny planets.

How do you come up with ideas for your dog's posts and content? Do you have a specific creative process?

Godfrey: I am inspired by the world around us. I'm always on the hunt for things I can compare Mr. Pink's tiny size to or somewhere I can shoot one of his tiny planets. We also have an ongoing series - Day xxxx of my new life as Mr. Pink. I recently started a nature series where Mr. Pink talks about something he has found in the wild.

Have you ever faced any challenges or negativity on social media, and how have you dealt with it?

Godfrey: People have strong opinions regarding Chihuahuas. Our account is about spreading joy. If you are just there to spread hate, you will be blocked and possibly reported. Life is too short to focus on the negativity.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start their own dog influencer account or share their dog on social media?

Godfrey: What is your why? Why are sharing your dog on social? If you are hoping to have a large following, your content has to be relatable to people. Content that people want to share with their friends.

How has your dog influenced your life outside of social media?

Godfrey: I am a commercial photographer, I specialize in animals. I understand how the energy I put out there affects my shot, or at least I thought I did until I started training Mr. Pink. He has definitely upped my training game.

Mr. Pink is also the smallest dog I have ever owned. I never really got the whole small dog thing. I do now. They intensely bond with their owners. I am his whole world. I am honored to be Pink's human and try to be the best I can for him. I often joke no one loves you more than your Chihuahua. It's very true.

Can you tell us about a particularly memorable or funny moment you've had with your dog during one of your photo shoots or adventures?

Godfrey: Mr. Pink has a prance he does when he's very happy. He does it often when we are hanging out on the porch or when he has scored a tortilla chip and is taking it back to his tent. Pink often gets stuck in prance mode. Pink looks like he's dancing with himself.

Mr. Pink also does not like the mud. It's his kryptonite. We were on the intertidal mud flats on the Bay of Fundy. The tides go out a mile in places, it also means the tides come in quickly. I had to scoop Pink up because the tides were coming in and he was "stuck" in the mud. I had picked him up by his harness, he was a muddy mess. Pink had a funny conversation with me about the mud. He was grateful for the ride, but wasn't quite done exploring.

What is your favorite thing about being a dog influencer?

Godfrey: Spending time with Mr. Pink exploring.

Lastly, what's next for you and your dog on social media? Any exciting plans or projects in the works?

Godfrey: Our annual summer roadtrip is coming up. You'll have to follow along to see where we go!
