Think of it as our late Christmas gift to you … the latest in Snapchat pet news for your pets.
This week, the popular social network presented lenses specifically for your pooch. Dog lenses come on the heels of October's release of cat lenses. They launched just before Christmas with some reindeer filters, including as a pizza face and glasses.
People have long used Snapchat lenses, which add animations to selfies, to their dogs, but the human filters haven't always worked properly, algorithmically. Now, when you see "try it with a pet," the lens should work perfectly, that is, the animated butterfly should lie exactly on the Fido's nose.
Striking dear lovers are another smart move for Snapchat, which has a shrinking user base.Snapchat owner Snap said 186 million users logged into the ephemeral messaging app daily in the third quarter, down from 188 million users in the previous quarter. It was that Snapchat had seen a drop in the number of active active users.
Snap did not immediately respond to a request for more information and comment on dog lenses.
