People carry signs all the time to make a point – so why shouldn’t pups? Especially when you’re cute as this little character and you have plenty to bark about.

Meet Baboy, the two-year-old Cavapoo (cavalier King Charles spaniel and poodle cross) that wants you to know she has feelings. Deep feelings.

Life isn’t all about catching balls and napping and stuff, you know.

Known on Instagram as @dogwithsign, the pooch can be seen walking the streets of New York City, sharing her thoughts and all the annoying things humans do on tiny cardboard signs clasped between her teeny-tiny teeth.

Baboy and her human Caroline, who is also the pup’s personal photographer, were inspired by Instagrammer Dude with Sign, who holds up relatable signs on the street.

After seeing him, Baboy knew she needed to be a voice for her fellow furry friends. 

“Stock up on treats”, “train your human” and “puppies against fireworks” are just a few of the feelings she shares on social media.

According to her Instagram bio, “If you don’t sit for something, you’ll never get the treat” – and with her black-and-beige fluffiness and comical protest signs, she’s won the hearts of over 182 000 followers. 

In fact, they just wuff her.

Check out her humorous signs.
