Popeye – From A Stray Dog To A Regular Customer in LA Restaurants


Popeye is living the life, dining at some of the best, most popular restaurants Los Angeles has to offer. He has developed quite the reputation for being a foodie! But it wasn’t always like that for this adorable pup.

Before being rescued by his loving owner, Ivy Diep, Popeye was your run of the mill stray living in LA. Diep recalls him being malnourished, dirty, and a complete mess. Already the owner of a house full of dogs, she and her husband were not looking to adopt yet another. But no one else wanted Popeye, and she just couldn’t bear to see him – so they decided to take him in. He quickly adjusted and became a part of the family.

Diep and a long-time friend had a habit of going to popular restaurants in LA and taking pics of food. One day they decided to include Popeye in one of the photos – and the response was greater than they ever expected. What makes it work is how well-behaved Popeye is around food. Rather than lunging at each dish, he’s able to pose with the food, making for some REALLY cute pictures. Take a look at some of our favorites below.

Popeye has an eye-popping 108K followers on Instagram. Check out his cute pics below!
