Dogs are among the few things that can bring an immense amount of joy to one’s life. These cheerful four-legged companions have the ability to spread boundless happiness wherever they go. Hamilton Taurino is a devoted dog lover who has dedicated his entire life to them. He began his own taxi service for pets to ensure that rejected canines get to their appointments safely. Furthermore, he captures a selfie with each pet passenger as they conclude their journey, producing a collection of delightful doggy selfies that will brighten up your day!
A Kiss for My Prince
This dog with ocean blue eyes should be informed that possessing attractive eyes does not give him an exemption from adhering to proper passenger behavior, which involves obeying the first rule, i.e., refraining from interfering with the driver’s concentration, in this case, by not meddling with the driver’s mouth.
This small dog is showing appreciation to Taurino by giving a kiss, most likely as a gesture of gratitude for the enjoyable ride. We can’t blame the owner or the driver for their happy expression.
The idea that only humans are capable of looking good is false. It is widely recognized even among dogs that “on Wednesdays, we wear pink!” This statement is a direct reference to a famous line from the film Mean Girls.
Take a glance at the passenger riding in Taurino’s pet taxi, they are carefully clad in a pink bow and leash that match each other. The bow is adorned with rhinestones to add some elegance. It is likely that this furry creature is en route to either a birthday celebration or a possible social outing.
A Different Angle
Similar to any other taxi service, Taurino’s pet taxi encounters peculiar passengers who exhibit their unconventional behavior while riding in the car. Taurino has noticed that some of his clients who become his acquaintances have a preference for taking extraordinary selfies rather than regular ones.
The dog has tilted his head to the side, perhaps as a pose or to maneuver his way between the seats to be closer to his companion.
Let Me Take a Selfie
Taurino established his pet transportation company after identifying the issue that a limited number of taxi drivers agreed to transport dogs in their vehicles. Subsequently, they would frequently reject the adorable animals and their owners.
It would be an understatement to claim that the entrepreneur was happy with his new work. This can be seen from the photo of Taurino and the dog, who are both happily posing for a selfie. The dog is also grinning with its tongue out, indicating that it has found a new companion.
It’s impossible to ignore the lovable nature of dogs – they’re adorable, energetic, and above all, exceptionally loving. Spending time with a furry friend is guaranteed to release feel-good dopamine in your system.
This passenger has chosen to take a selfie while digging into Taurino’s ears as though searching for gold. Alternatively, it is possible that Taurino applies peanut butter behind his ears to please his passengers. Whatever the method, we are interested in learning more about it!
Beware of Excess Cuteness
Taurino’s selfies do not always result in every dog showing a very happy expression. Some dogs choose to have a more menacing expression which indicates that they should not be underestimated.
This dog is showing its tough side by squinting its eyes, while it is possible that Taurino distracted it from its deep thinking when he requested a selfie. However, one cannot deny that this is an extremely adorable photograph.
The Mark of Happiness
Taurino experiences immense happiness when he transports dogs to and from veterinary appointments and brings them back home safely. This satisfaction is shared not only by Taurino himself but also by the dogs and their owners.
For instance, consider this cheerful quadruped with his attractive patterns and an amusing smile with his tongue out. He appears quite delighted to have finished his visit to the veterinarian.
Are We There Yet
There are some passengers in the pet taxi who don’t have the patience to enjoy the calm journey. Rather, they prefer to gaze outside through the window and eagerly wait to get off and stretch their legs.
This particular black dog belongs to the group of pets who are more interested in looking out of the windows than posing for the camera. We hope that his eagerness to move around is just a desire to stretch and not because he needs to relieve himself immediately.
The Green Leash
When you observe this photo, the green leash catches your attention immediately. Its vivid color and attractiveness perfectly complement the white furry dog sitting in the backseat and posing for this selfie.
In contrast to Taurino’s cheerful expression, this person appears extremely impatient, perhaps scrutinizing the route and muttering curses at the driver for making incorrect turns and weaving in and out of traffic.
Dalmatian Number One
The Dalmatian, with its distinct spots of black and white, appears eager to climb into the front seat. It seems that taking a selfie is not enough for him, as he wants to show his affection to Taurino through more direct means like showering him with dog kisses.
The owner appeared to struggle to control her dog, preventing it from jumping upfront. It is important for everyone’s safety that she managed to do so successfully.
Got a Secret
Cab drivers are privy to numerous incidents and events occurring on the phone or within the cab, thus making them a repository of information. Furthermore, some individuals may voluntarily confide in their cab drivers, sharing their most private and confidential matters.
It appears that even the dog is joining in on the deal and appears prepared to share a secret with Taurino. It seems that pet taxis are not free of their own set of controversies.
Three’s a Crowd?
Occasionally, Taurino’s animal transportation service has numerous riders when the entire pack of pooches decides to go out together. The destination remains unclear, although it’s amusing to speculate that they may be visiting a veterinary clinic, or perhaps they are part of a dog crew known as The Furry Boys.
It appears that the dogs are all well-mannered and not causing any issues for the driver, which suggests that managing multiple passengers is not a difficult task. In fact, it seems that having more passengers can add to the enjoyment of the ride.
Tipping With Affection
There is no need for the humans to tip Taurino for the good service because it seems the canines have that part all covered. These furry four-legged creatures seem to be ready to tip their chauffeur with the best thinga of all — little kisses and licks.
Who wouldn’t want an extra dose of love and affection from these gentle creatures? This one also has her owner helping her with a leg up to give the mandatory peck.
We totally understand how the expression “puppy-dog eyes” came to exist. Just one look at this golden retriever will tell you that dogs do indeed have the kind of eyes that look bottomless and can make you agree to anything.
No wonder most dog owners end up giving their dogs extra treats, or buying them cute little jumpers. Don’t look at us that way, golden, we’re already sold on your cuteness.
Some dogs are beautiful and different. You see them and you can’t help but exclaim at a certain feature that stands out from the rest. For this pink-nosed fella, it’s definitely the ears. It could give Yoda a run for his money.
Almost as big as his face, the ears are standing up tall and high and are the most distinguished feature of the dog. Maybe he’s just posing in an attentive manner for the selfie.
Am I Close Enough?
There seems to be something extra special about Taurino’s photos that not only captures the dedicated driver and the dog, but also the owners lounging in the back seat.
Take this photo for example. The brown and white dog is going for a close-up look in the selfie along with Taurino, while his owner is sitting and smiling comfortably in the back. Just the best pick-me-up capture of the day!
These two pooches look like a mighty fine example of opposites attract. One of the black dogs looks very excited to be in the photo with his tongue hanging out, while the other is silently staring at the camera like a stern parent.
The juxtaposition of the expressions is enough to have any viewer smiling, so no wonder Taurino looks like he’s grinning ear to ear under the mask.
Too Excited to Sit
We’ve all been there, eagerly awaiting our destination. The excitement builds so high that we bounce up and down in our seats, unable to sit still.
This dog looks like he too is waiting to get somewhere. Maybe his owners are taking him to a pet cafe to hang out with his friends. If there’s a way to score an invitation to this hang, sign us up.
The Cutest Passenger
This dog is probably one of the cutest passengers to ever sit in Taurino’s pet taxi. Looking right out of the cast of Marley and Me, the young golden retriever looks to be of the age where they’re all cuddles and cuteness.
Looking at this, most of you probably want to switch places with Taurino just so you can get in on the absolute adorableness leaking from this puppy. We sure do!
Jumping Over the Fence
There’s always that one kid in the cab that is always jumping up and down in excitement, constantly peppering the driver and their parents with questions about their destination with their favorite words — ‘are we there yet?’
This bulldog looks to be going through something similar, with his head stuck out from between the two seats, close to Taurino. Regardless, his excitement has made for one of the best selfie pics ever.
Everybody Say Cheese
When the owners in the pet taxi are as excited and ready as the dogs for Taurino’s traditional selfie, we love the results all the more! Like this adorable pic, where all three riders in the cab have posed for the photo.
Taurino is smiling as usual, while the owner and the pet both are looking straight at the camera. We love the protective cuddle given by the owner to her pet.
Taurino can’t, and doesn’t, expect all his passengers to be well behaved. Just like a human taxi, he gets a mix of pets to drive around. Serene, angry, or, sometimes, overly rambunctious.
Like in this photo, the owner is desperately trying to control his two pups from going berserk in the back. But, we don’t think he’s succeeding, if the thrown-back head and overly large tongue are any indication of their excitement.
The Green Leash Returns
Taurino has at least a few returning customers that come back to his pet taxi time and again. Like this green-leashed, white-furred pup, who is back for a joyride. Only this time, her expression suggests maybe the ride isn’t very joyful.
Her expression and her tongue being out are classic signs of nausea of some kind. Maybe she’s ready to throw up all over the cab. If that’s true, we’re glad we’re not in Taurino’s place.
A Good Boy
It’s fairly easy to gauge what kind of dog you’re dealing with by the way they carry themselves. Whether they’re too excitable or plain old lazy, it’s mostly visible within the first hour of hanging out with them.
Sometimes, it’s visible through just one snap. Like this little lad here. For the selfie, he has chosen to stand ramrod straight, like a good little boy. The lolling tongue is a night touch to his otherwise serious demeanor.
Look at Me, Please
This Labrador is very clear about what he wants, and what he wants is attention. He’s clearly giving Taurino a look that is begging for some pets and hugs.
But, a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do and the pet taxi selfie is important. Hopefully, after the pic, this doggy not only got some pats on his head but also a treat or two for being such a good boy.
The Mark of a Dog
The first thing that pops out in this photo is the beautiful logo sported by Taurino on his uniform. The bright blue T-shirt and the Taxi Dog logo with the picture of a dog hugging a shape like a heart is adorable beyond words.
Not to mention, the passenger in this selfie shot only adds beauty to the photo. He also seems to be sporting some pretty cool markings.
I Call Shotgun
This little dog got stuck in the backseat of the pet taxi while his owner and Taurino enjoyed a leisurely drive in the front. His head tilted in the front indicates that he’s also interested in joining the duo.
Sadly, it looks like he won’t be able to get into the front seat, so his owner is giving him all the affection. Love the relationship between the owner and their dog.
Do I Look Cute?
This is another dog that has ears that are almost as big as his face. Another one of the beautiful and regal pets Taurino has driven in his car, it seems like.
The owner seems to be holding the dog back by his chin to stop him from jumping at the camera. After all, we all know that dogs are easily excitable creatures, especially if they get a glimpse at their own reflection.
Is This Enough to Be a Filter
Who else remembers the famous dog filter that turned human photos into a walking talking dog picture? The craze took over Snapchat and every person on the social media platform was sticking their tongue out to look especially dog-ish.
This dog looks like a real-life version of the filter, with his tongue hanging out for the selfie. If this pose is good enough for us, it’s good enough for him.
In Too Deep
Have you ever had those rides in cabs when you get so lost in your own thoughts that anything that the driver says goes right over your head? Well, this dog seems to be having just one of those days.
This pet taxi passenger looks to be deep in thought while Taurino is trying to take the selfie. Maybe he had a spat with a fellow dog, or maybe he had a tiff with his lady love.
I Want In
For every pensive and broody canine in the pet taxi, Taurino drives an equally excitable and hyper pup. Look at this golden dog, who can’t seem to contain his excitement and looks ready to jump into the camera.
A plausible explanation might be that he’s on his way to a soirée for dogs, and can’t wait to get his hands (or paws) on all the doggy treats available there. Or, he might just be ecstatic at being asked for a selfie.
There Are More Interesting Things Outside
Not every passenger of the pet taxi is satisfied by the arrangements made by Taurino in the car. Some just want to start out and gaze at the passing scenery, just like we humans often do.
This one also seems to have found something much more interesting to stare at outside than the interiors of the car. Maybe they had just passed a bunch of kittens, or better yet, a dog park.
Can We Stop Now?
This little guy with the brown patch around his eye seems to be on a mission. And his mission seems to look a lot like trying to give his drivers some guidance.
His barks could be about anything, from the Wendy’s that just passed or the upcoming turn on the right. Regardless, which Uber driver doesn’t love an alert and informative passenger?
Sometimes, all that passengers wanna do is chat with their drivers. It might be out of boredom, or stress, but, sometimes, there can be quite a bit of comfort to be found in confiding in a complete stranger.
This dog also looks ready to just about yap Taurino’s ear off with his conversation. We wonder what new business scheme this little pooch has come up with, and whether Taurino will take the deal.
You Can Put Me Down Now
This white Shih Tzu does not like being held hostage in the backseat. Or at least, that’s what his extremely peckish expression seems to be saying. Dogs are free creatures.
They like to roam and have the option to spread their legs and just take off. We wonder how Taurino has made his pet taxi into a space where dogs feel comfortable. There’s evidence of comfortable seating and a divider cloth to make the ride better for its canine passengers.
Accessorizing is a styling choice made by an individual. Some like their accessories minimal, while some opt for the flashy kind. This pet looks like the latter kind.
The multicolored scarf is bold. With dark green and hot pink layered between the colors, he looks like he’s either ready to join a gang or go to a club. Another advantage of driving pets around is that you get the chance to check out what’s hot in doggy fashion.
There’s always that one person in every friend group who’s a diva and isn’t afraid to show it. In this pet taxi, this lady seems to have to take it upon herself to be that diva.
Just look at the way she’s lying down. If royalty dogs had a pose, this would be it. Serene and haughty, all at once. Even Taurino’s selfie post seems extra polite, or maybe we’re just projecting at this point.
There are many things that can look like betrayal in a dog’s eyes. These include, but are not limited to, going out without them, taking them to a vet, and tricking them into a bath. Many, many things can bring the look on a dog’s face.
This pet-taxi passenger also looks like he’s been betrayed by the driver quite thoroughly. Since this pet taxi was majorly started to drive dogs to their doctor appointments and back, it’s safe to assume that this trip is on their way back from the vet.
Mostly, the dogs traveling in Taurino’s pet taxi are medium-sized so they fit quite easily, whether standing or sitting, in the backseat. That’s not the case with this large fella.
He looks like he’s ready to burst through the roof as his head is currently touching the top of the car. But, there’s a pretty good chance that he’s spotted a Dairy Queen on the way, as he is busy licking his lips.
Another Day, Another Selfie
For Taurino, this is a regular day in his life. But, for all his followers on social media, it’s a slice of happiness. His selfie ritual is a cute and adorable tradition that brings happiness not just to him and the passenger, but also to the viewers.
This impatient pug looks ready to de-board the car at this point, which is probably why his owner is holding him so securely. While this doggy doesn’t look super comfortable, you can find plenty who are on Taurino’s Instagram!
