A dog with a camera mounted on her neck is becoming all the rage on Instagram (KTRK)

Tula, a 4-year-old rescue, loves nothing more than playing with her canine companions at the dog park, and is now becoming a social media star because of it.

"She just has a very sweet demeanor, very loving dog," says Tula's owner, Ken. "Snuggles up, very well behaved, thankfully."

Ken's daughter, Susie, loves getting shots of the dog park action.

She ever launched an Instagram handle for Tula called 'Canine Happy Hour.' And there's something very different about it from the other dog social media pages.

"Now Susie started 'Canine Happy Hour' back in January after trying to get shots of Tula playing with her friends on her own," Ken says. "But she decided to try a new approach."

"It really wasn't working because when I got close to the dogs and they were playing, they'd just stop playing and pay attention to me," Susie says.

So Susie decided to put Tula in control.

With a GoPro mounted to her harness, she catches her playmates in action, from her point of view.

"I really like capturing what the dogs would be like if humans weren't there and capturing true interactions," Susie says.

The camera takes two pictures every second. After a typical dog park visit, they end up with about 7,000 photos. Susie goes through and picks the best ones. It's a process that often ends up with a lot of laughs.

"There's pictures of dogs in the air with no feet on the ground," Susie says. "They look like little ballerinas and dogs like mid jump that are really really cute."

It turns out, she's not the only one. Canine Happy Hour has taken off.

"One of the articles that was published on Facebook got two thousand shares on Facebook, so the response has been really amazing."
