Humans may live on the internet, but dogs and cats are its rulers. For proof of this fact, look no further than Troja, an Irish Setter with an Instagram account (faithfully managed by her owner George). Troja loves nothing more than to explore the beauties of nature in Norway, and we love nothing more than to explore her feed.
Troja is owned by photographer George Rotan, who told Buzzfeed a little bit about how the Instagram started:
Troja always came with me on hikes, but I never thought about photographing her until people on the trail started complimenting her looks.
Rotan believes taking Troja’s picture so many times has built a stronger bond between them:
Since I’ve started taking pictures of her, it’s created more of an interaction between us on our hikes. It’s led to a very strong companionship,
The pair met shortly after Rotan’s last dog passed away. He was looking for a new pup, but Troja’s caretaker wasn’t sure the Irish Setter was ready:
Troja was very weak and insecure as a pup, but she had such a soulful, unique personality. I instantly fell in love with her and vowed to help her get better.
Fortunately, helped along by their walks, Troja began to calm down very quickly!
Being with her throughout her process has had such a huge impact on my life and personal development as well. She’s shown me why humans and dogs have coexisted so peacefully for thousands of years.
Instagram and Twitter users are obsessed with Troja’s gentle soul and beautiful coat:
