Mark Zuckerberg's Dog, Beast, Celebrates St. Patrick's Day In The Most Adorable Way Ever — PHOTOS
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan's mop-dog Beast is an amazingly cute phenomenon. This morning, the Zuckerbergs posted a picture of his famous dog on Facebook and captioned it, "Beast wishes you a day of luck and joy." And cue the Internet bursting with "awws" all around. On St. Patrick's Day 2016, Beast — surely an ironic name for the adorable, silly creature — was officially everyone's little leprechaun. If you need more of this dog in your life, however, do not fear. He has his own Facebook page and makes appearances quite often.
The dog even comments on his owner's activities, as well as articles from The New York Times and other well-known media outlets via the social media site. In January, he posted a response to a Vanity Fair article that expressed disappointment at the fact Beast had to share his own fifth birthday with his recently born little human sister, Max.
But Beast shouldn't forget that when his parents announced Priscilla's pregnancy, he was the center of the photo posted alongside the announcement. Chances are, he'll remain in the doggy limelight for years to come.
He must have some insightful things to say, because he's raked in over 2 million followers and each of his posts gets thousands of likes. According to the majority of his posts, he spends a lot of time cuddling with Zuckerberg's wife, Priscilla. Beast has been an integral part of the Zuckerberg family since 2011. When Priscilla and Mark were married in May 2012, the beloved pet even walked down the aisle with the bride. His "about" page says it all.
I am a Puli, which is a type of Hungarian Sheepdog. I live in Palo Alto with Mark and Cilla. I like cuddling and herding things.
Here are some of the most memorable moments from Beast's Facebook page in chronological order from his puppy-hood until today:
His Little Nook
The fluffiness is too much to handle.
It cannot possibly get any more precious than this. He basically helped the Zuckerberg couple prepare for their baby girl.
The Jumpsuit Debut
He's probably not standing up because he's embarrassed.
He Was Made For This
Herding sheep is in his genes. After all, he is a Hungarian sheep dog.
Never Enough Cuddles
Beast posted this picture of him and Priscilla on New Year's Eve. What better way to begin the new year?
He's already won us all over.
