You may have seen @DudeWithSign on Instagram speaking up about the unfairness of everyday life, but who is out there to help do the same for dogs? Don’t worry, @DogWithSign (also known as Baboy) stepped up to the mark back in January, and his wry written complaints and advice from a doggy point of view have continued to make him an internet sensation ever since then.

Baboy clearly believes in gentle written protest, holding handwritten signs in his mouth to point out how the world works from a pooch’s perspective. Messages like "Stop pretending to throw the ball," "Stop using me as your pick-up line," and "Stop blaming your farts on me," have already gained him 177K followers, and his following is growing day by day.

While @DudeWithSign’s Instagram description is ‘If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything,’ DogWithSign’s is the gentler, but still poignant ‘If you don’t sit for something, you’ll never get the treat.’

While dog shaming is all the rage across the internet, Baboy has turned the tables and has got human-shaming down to an art form, and one that brings a regular wry smile to our faces. We can only hope this adorable protestor gets an even bigger following, so our furry friends can rally behind his cause and make the world a better place for dogs everywhere!
