If you live in LA and you're struggling to get a reservation at some of the best restaurants in town, it's probably because of Popeye the dog. Because while the cute little canine was once a starving stray who used to eat whatever he could find, now the fluffy foodie dines on the best food in town along with his owner Ivy Diep.

"I found him as a stray," Ivy told Bored Panda. "He was such a mess - super skinny, heavily matted, dirty." Ivy wasn't looking for another dog at that time as she already had a full-house, but no one wanted Popeye so she decided to keep him. "It wasn't long before he made himself at home at my place with my other dogs. And of course, my husband and I fell in love [with him].

"One of my friends, Jen, suggested that I create an Instagram account for Popeye because he was cute. Jen and I liked to go on what we call 'Instagram dates' and take pics of our food. I'd bring Popeye any time I can, and we realized he was really good around food. He doesn't lunge for food or really even care for it. He just liked to be out. He'll get nibbles of anything that's safe for him. I also carry a bag of treats for him, in case there's nothing he can have."

Popeye now has over 108k followers on Instagram, so if you can't get a reservation then at least you can check out his pictures to see what you're missing!

For those who don't understand, she loves to instagram her food. The food is for her, not the dog. She just takes a treat for the dog. I think it's cute :)

I bet the dog didn't know what was going to happen when he got rescued but he never gave up, and that was the work of God. AMEN
