New York City, NY - Celebrity sightings in New York City aren’t uncommon, but most of the time you have to be in the right place at the right time.

But that’s not always the case!

We found one block in the Big Apple where everybody knows where, and when, a celebrity of a different kind will make her daily appearance for her fans.

Her name, is Louboutina.

5. Priorities



I have 2 Rotts. Big babies, but at 185+ and 105, no jumping up to hug. I've trained them to 1 paw hug folks who squat next to them.

6. Awww! I know people have done this and gotten a lot of attention

But I'd be willing to bet that Louboutina gets more hugs than any of them...

9. This Instagram Dog Wants to Sell You a Lint Roller

The couch set up in Central Park was oversize and lime green and crowded with Instagram celebrity dogs and cushions bearing the logo of Scotch-Brite lint rollers. It was a warm, sunny Wednesday in May. The dogs wore lime green and yellow Scotch-Brite bandannas and their owners wore expressions of strenuous amusement.

The event, Scotch-Brite said, featured some of New York City’s leading “pupfluencers”: Toast (@toastmeetsworld), a rescued spaniel with 377,000 Instagram followers, famous for her hanging tongue; Louboutina (@louboutinanyc), the “hugging dog” with 165,000 followers, and more.

Fans and passers-by waited in line to take selfies with the dogs. People magazine was doing a Facebook Live piece. “Guys,” the moderator asked, “how important are lint rollers to all of you in your day-to-day life?”

“They are very important for me, particularly when it comes to clothing,” said the owner of the up-and-coming Griffon, Sprout (@brussels.sprout, 63,000 followers).

To some, this scene may have seemed odd. In fact, given the rise of influencer marketing, in which people with big social-media followings are paid to promote products, and the hugeness of animal photos on Instagram, it was closer perhaps to inevitable.
