A Dog is Now the Fifth Most Popular Advice Columnist on Twitter

Durham, NC–8 August 2017–Dear Mishu, the self- described “Advice columnist and former street dog,” is the hottest new life coach for the Instagram and Twitter crowd, and now ranks as the # 5 advice columnist on Twitter — ahead of accounts from major magazines and newspapers in the U.S.

First launched in November 2016, the Dear Mishu account has grown to over 22,000 followers on Twitter (@dearmishudear) and 21,000 followers on Instagram (@dearmishu). The premise behind Dear Mishu is that dogs are smarter, or at least wiser, than humans because they live in the moment, stay present, and know how to give and receive unconditional love. Mishu – the dog who inspires Dear Mishu – was rescued as a puppy from the streets of Guatemala and gives advice to help people cope with the stresses of modern life, relationships and careers. read more

Did someone say celery? Mmmm…. sounds delicious

The Inside Story

Celebrity?  Mishu could not be less interested! In fact, she’s so not interested in being a celebrity that she doesn’t even know that word. For her, it might as well be celery.

Adopt Don’t Shop – Dear Mishu’s Adoption Story #AdoptAShelterPetDay

Is that E.T?  No, it’s me, Dear Mishu, skinny & dirty, when I was rescued in Guatemala by Animal Aware (animalaware.org), and before I got adopted. I’m sharing this very personal photo in honor of National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day. #AdoptDontShop #AdoptAShelterPetDay

The Inside Story

Dear Mishu’s adoption story is fairly well known by now. She was found at the gate of Animal Aware Guatemala when she was a puppy – scared, skinny, dirty and hungry. They took her in and cared for her, got her vaccinated and spayed, and a sister rescue group brought her to San Francisco, where we got to adopt her. read more

What’s your favorite food?  Aimee asks, Mishu answers.

What’s your favorite food? Aimee asks, Mishu answers.

Dear Aimee,
I’ll eat anything.  It must be my proud street-dog heritage –  I’ve got some scavenger in me! …  A lot of us with difficult pasts focus on the negatives, but we should remember that it gave us many things: resilience, flexibility, an appreciation for life and a willingness to eat anything!

The Inside Story

Yes, Mishu really will eat anything, including things she’s not supposed to eat.

She’s not like some dogs who you have to measure their food or they’ll eat everything in the bowl.  Even if it’s her favorite food, Mishu will generally stop when she’s no longer hungry and leave some food in the bowl. read more

Are you near sighted or far sighted?  Cathy asks, Mishu answers

Are you near sighted or far sighted? Cathy asks, Mishu answers

 Dear Cathy:

Neither. Glasses just make me feel smart & look great. Do you ever wear things to feel good about yourself?

Love, Mishu

The Inside Story

Yes, it’s true that Mishu does not technically need her very stylish glasses. But she looks so great in them, so why not?

We all put on costumes and masks to feel a certain way about ourselves, or to look a certain way to others. And that’s fine. Dressing up can make you feel good about yourself. It can even make you feel more like yourself. Or, it can make you feel like what you want to be. read more

Adventure is Everything – Mishu visits Paris

Hoping my black eyeliner is the right look for #ParisFashionWeek  I think this is a WWEBD moment – i.e. What would @ellabeanthedog do?  #DearMishu #Adventure

The Inside Story

Mishu may not be super fashionable, but she does love adventure. When she heard about Paris Fashion Week she decided that it was the perfect opportunity to visit Paris.

Ha, just kidding! But we did notice that cool eyeliner is the thing this year – See the Bold Eye Liner at Paris Fashion Week Pat McGrath – and since Mishu has her own, permanent, Cleopatra like eyeliner, we thought she’d fit right in! read more

Dear Mishu Tries Something New

Dear Mishu:  When’s the last time you tried something new?  From: Julianne…

Great question, Julianne – Watch this video to see Mishu’s answer!

Mishu is always telling humans to Try Something New and live like Everyday Is a Gift. Check out this video of the last time Mishu tried to follow her own advice! #TrySomethingNew #DearMishu

The Inside Story

It was back in January, when Guatemala bred and California raised Mishu, experienced snow for the very first time. She walked down the steps, took a few steps, and immediately tried to go back up. The video doesn’t show everything, but there was about 5 minutes of Mishu repeatedly being lured or carried out to the snow, and then escaping back under cover or up the stairs. read more

What’s your favorite #snack, Iris asks, Mishu answers. #DearMishu 


Well, I’ve always wanted to try #chocolate but my human friends never let me! I usually like to crunch on #carrots but if I feel like an extra special treat I like eating apple slices. One time I had peanut butter on my apple and I think that was the yummiest thing I’ve ever had! #dearmishu
