If you have spent even a modicum of time on Unleashed, you are well aware that we are Stassi Schroeder superfans. One of our favorite things about the Vanderpump Rules ex-SURver? Her loud and proud dedication to being “basic.” From her love of ranch dressing and rosé, to her commitment to crystals and Khaleesi, Stassi is the epitome of the word.
So clearly, we lost our minds when we discovered the Instagram @DogsBeingBasic, which is basically a venn diagram of our two passions: Dogs, and basicness. The account features puppers doing all of the stuff basic bitches (sometimes literally) do: Going to Starbucks, eating carbs, napping, and the like. It’s almost as if Stassi’s dog Zoe started her own Instagram and we are here for it, which is a phrase that basics use all the time.
Major bonus: Dogs Being Basic isn’t just for jokes. It’s also philanthropic. They have a website where you can buy all kinds of dog-themed basic merch (think: a tanktop that says “Adopt and Chill,” a mug that reads, “Boy, Bye. Dog, Hi!,” and a t-shirt with the slogan, “Pajamas, puppies, & pumpkin spice.” Proceeds benefit rescue organizations where the customers live.
“The concept of Dogs Being Basic originated from a hashtag written below an upside down slumber bucket which soon grew into sharing humorous, cute and touching moments,” reads the website. “We now want to grow together while giving back to the wonderful world of the dogs we all love. That’s why it is important to us that a percentage of our profits go back into the dog community in the form of rescue groups and shelters.”
