Five fun questions to get to know Matt Antoine

Matt Antoine runs an Instagram account for his dog, Dixie

Do you have pets?

Dixie, a Golden Retriever. She's my best friend and I couldn't imagine not having her there each day. I adopted her two years ago from a shelter in Phoenix. It was a bit of luck for me to get her and I think it was meant to be.
