In the midst of all the frolicking puppies, one dog on West Street in downtown Raleigh looked completely disinterested. As she sat on her barstool, positioned far above all the other dogs there, she had no intention of engaging in the fun things happening. This dog was undoubtedly the embodiment of an all-encompassing, relatable feeling for just about everyone.
This dog is Pogo, a four-year-old American bulldog-boxer mix who has become the newest TikTok celebrity. This dog prefers to be alone in an off-leash dog bar or a doggie daycare, where her mother, Grace Wheeler, works. Grace claims that she brings Pogo to work with her every day and that she is well aware of Pogo’s so-called snobbish demeanor.
Grace has worked in a few doggie daycares before she made it to this current business, and Pogo has always hopped on stools meant only for humans. She believes it is Pogo’s way of demonstrating to the other dogs that she is superior to all of them. Grace even jokes that Pogo is a judgmental queen dog, but she loves her just the way she is.
Aside from that attitude, Pogo exhibits also a variety of unique and intriguing characteristics. The first is the way she sits, which is quite similar to how people would actually sit on a stool – and is seen in her popular video. She also enjoys snuggling in bed and going on a drive with one of her legs out the window, exactly like a human would.
Pogo has now established a loyal and increasing social media following. She also has been attracting a large number of visitors to the place where her mom works. In fact, many visitors to the off-leash dog bar go there just to look for this very unique dog. She is unquestionably the queen of the dog bar, and no one else could dethrone her.
