Mishu - a dog -  No. 4 Advice Columnist on Twitter
March 22, 2021: Mishu – a dog – No. 4 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.

Dear Mishu’s followers agree. One recent post (https://www.instagram.com/p/BRy3XUpjjtu/) asked people to describe Mishu in three words. The 72 comments used adjectives like wise, kind-hearted, funny, warm, zen, understanding, and insightful to describe their favorite canine life coach.

Recent posts submitted by followers and answered by Dear Mishu have included questions about dating advice, depression, motivation, stress, friendship problems, staying hopeful,  career advice, fear of failure, and noisy neighbors, as well as more lighthearted questions such as what dogs do when they’re home alone all day, and how to stop wasting time.
