New Instagram trend #Petselfiez will make you smile

(WXYZ) - Pet owners, it's time to get your dog or cat camera ready.

We've all heard of selfies--that one-handed self portrait that you usually take as you're trying to look glamorous. Well, now pets are getting involved, and it's hilarious. 

A funny and popular hashtag on Instagram #petselfiez will definitely put you in a good mood.

Pet owners have been snapping a picture of their dog or cat as if the pets were taking a picture of themselves.

In most of the photos under the hashtag, the pet's arm is in the frame--so it gives the illusion that the pet is holding
the camera to take their own picture.

Just file this under:  "If this doesn't make you laugh, I don't know what will."

Instagram user Jeremy Veach started the trend with his pug Norm. Since his post, Instagram says more than 900 other animals have been inspired to share their own selfies with the hashtag.
