This Mexican Dog Has His Own Instagram Account And It’s The Cutest Thing Ever

Nowadays it’s fairly common to see people’s pets with their own social media accounts, and there’s one dog in particular who is killing it with his artsy Instagram posts. He goes by the name of Käifän and is a Mexican hairless dog who is all about ✨aesthetic✨.

You might recognize this dog from the Pixar movie “Coco,” and that’s because they’re both of the same breed: Xoloitzcuintli (or Xolo for short).

The Xolo is Mexico’s ancient Aztec dog of the gods. The coat of this dog not only makes them hypoallergenic, but also serves as proof of evolution. And as you can tell by Kai’s pose in the picture, these dogs are very confident in their hairless coat.

What makes Käi stand out in the doggie internet world is that he has a great sense of style.

When it comes to fashion, Käi pays great attention to detail. It’s all about combining colors and getting creative with accessories.

He never misses an opportunity to throw on a statement necklace.

TBH, this dog has a better sense of style than me.

In addition to accessories, Käi’s closet of clothes is also filled with lots of colors and beautiful patterns.

Okay, this dog definitely belongs on a fashion runway.

And since Käi is always looking extra cute, he never misses a chance to catch a glimpse of his reflection in a mirror.

Every time he passes by a mirror and catches his reflection he says, “Damn, who’s that good looking stud looking back at me?”

Sometimes, Käi likes to strike the candid pose, as if he has no idea his picture is being taken.

His tiny almond-shaped eyes are the cutest! ????

One of his best features are his pointy, bat-like ears.

Every time he’s happy, alert, or attentive, you’ll see his ears pointed straight up into the air.

And when it comes to the background of all his insta pics, there’s never such a thing as boring.

The design in this picture is beautiful!

Some of Käi’s hobbies include having outdoor picnics…

I’ve never seen a more aesthetically pleasing picnic picture.

Shopping for rad music…

Okay so, who wants to have a jam-out sesh with this cool doggie?

And taking afternoon strolls throughout his neighborhood.

@xolito_magico / Instagram / Digital Image

This dog is living the best doggie life!

Käi loves to shop for all of his looks in the streets of downtown LA.

Even his leash is on fleek!✨

When it comes to having fun, Käi’s favorite plush toy is this stuffed Tapatío bottle.

@xolito_magico / Instagram / Digital Image

This is the *hottest* plush toy I’ve seen.

One of his favorite games is hide-n-seek.

@xolito_magico / Instagram / Digital Image

He may not be any good at this game, but he sure does look cute attempting to hide.

On his more relaxing days, Käi likes to snuggle up in bed with his paws up to his chin.

@xolito_magico / Instagram / Digital Image

This is absolutely adorable.

And sometimes these snuggles lead to cozy afternoon naps. ????

@xolito_magico / Instagram / Digital Image

Awwwwwww ???? My heart!! ????

Even though Käi was a bit shy at first about taking pictures and posting on social media…

@xolito_magico / Instagram / Digital Image

Baby Käi is the cutest. ????

He now slays every photo he takes and is a star on Instagram.

@xolito_magico / Instagram / Digital Image

Okayyyyyy Käi, I see youuuuuu. ????

Yalitza Aparicio Has Landed Her First Role Since “Roma” And We Cannot Wait

For fans of Yalitza Aparicio from the now iconic film Roma, we have been waiting almost three years to know what’s next for the Oscar-nominated actress. And now, we finally have some answers.

The Roma actress is set to star in an upcoming horror film that’s already started filming.

Anyone who saw Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma immediately fell in love with Cleo, the character played by Oscar-nominated actress Yalitza Aparicio. Her award-winning part in Roma was her very first acting gig and despite her success, she hasn’t acted in anything since, until now.

Aparicio is set to star in an upcoming horror film Presences, a horror film from Innocent Voices director Luis Mandoki. As reported by Mexican publication El Universal, production on Aparicio’s second feature kicked off this week in Tlalpujahua in central Mexico.

According to El Universal: “The film tells the story of a man who loses his wife and goes to seclude himself in a cabin in the woods, where strange things happen.” Production in Tlalpujahua is expected to last for a month.

Although this is only her second role, Aparicio has kept herself busy with several projects.

Aparicio was a schoolteacher plucked from obscurity to star in “Roma,” which resulted in her becoming the first Mexican woman to be Oscar nominated for Best Actress in 14 years and the first Indigenous woman in history. And her Indigenous identity is a major part of her career.

While “Presences” marks the first movie Aparicio has taken on since “Roma,” the actress has remained busy over the last two years, including supporting Indigenous film community efforts in Mexico.

The actress has teamed with projects such as Cine Too to help extend access to cinema to marginalized communities. Cine Too is a one-screen, 75-seat cinema in Guelatao de Juárez, Oaxaca that serves as an educational center for the next generation of Indigenous filmmakers.

“It’s important to save these spaces because they reach places where the arts are often not accessible,” Aparicio told IndieWire. “I come from a community where there’s no movie theater, and as a consequence the population, especially the children that grow up those communities, has less of an interest in the cinematic arts. [Cine Too] has the possibility to reach these children and provide an opportunity to instill in them the passion for cinema and teach them about this art form.”

Aparicio continued, “My objective in my career is to give visibility to all of us who have been kept in the dark for so long. The acting projects I’m working on are moving slowly because I’m putting all my efforts in not being pigeonholed because of my appearance. There are many people who have the disposition to help change things. We’ve had enough of people being typecast in certain roles or characters based on the color of their skin. We have a complicated job, because these things can’t be changed overnight but hopefully we can show people that the only limits are within us.”

“Wherever I go, I’ll always be proudly representing our Indigenous communities,” the actress concluded. “I’m conscious that every step I take may open doors for someone else and at the same time it’s an opportunity for society to realize we are part of it and that we are here.”

A Woman Saves A Dog During The Texas Snow Storm Using Tortillas

Texas recently dealt with one of the worst winter storms in its history. Millions were left without water and power for days and Sen. Ted Cruz was caught up in a scandal after being caught going on a Mexican vacation. One pup is catching everyone’s attention after being rescued thanks to tortillas.

One lucky dog in San Antonio was saved from the cold by a caring woman with tortillas.

Kristina Salinas-Labrador was out buying tortillas for her family on Thursday when she spotted a dog in the freezing cold in San Antonio, Texas. Instead of driving by, Kristin stopped her car and spent 30 minutes luring the dog to the warmth of her car using tortillas. Kristin told the WOAI reporter that he stopped to save the dog’s life because he was skinny and could likely die from the cold weather that crippled much of Texas.

According to her interview with WOAI, Kristin saved the dog because she felt like helping during the hard times Texans are facing.

“Dogs, they don’t know what’s going on; cats, pets, they don’t know what’s going on,” Kristin told the reporter. “So, we try to help them out – one dog at a time. I’m hoping the next person will stop, too, and help the different strays.”

This isn’t the first time that Kristin or her wife have picked up a stray animal.

Nicole Salinas-Labrador, Kristin’s wife, told NBC News that the dog’s name is now Taco. Nicole admitted that she and her wife often stop for stray dogs and cats when they see them while out and about. Nicole joked that her wife used her “Mexican ways” to get the dog in the car, according to NBC News.

The couple is taking care of Taco until they can find a forever home for the sweet pup.

“Hello everyone! Thank you for sharing and for your interest! He was scanned for chip and he doesn’t have one. And no one has still claimed him,” Nicole wrote in a comment under the Facebook post. “He is with me and my family for now. He is getting fully vetted today and making sure he is in perfect health. Anyone that is interested in adopting him feel free to PM me. This process will def take some time.. I do extensive background checks to make sure any stray that is in my care goes to the absolute best forever home. Any questions feel free to message me.”
