A Norfolk woman who created an Instagram account dedicated to her sausage dog obsession has turned her pups into online stars – with more than 100,000 followers. 

Michaela Bouskova, from King’s Lynn, first started The Daxie Trouble Instagram account four years ago to document the lives of her miniature sausage dogs. 

The idea came after she lost her two-year-old rescue Harvey in 2017, when realised she did not have many photographs of him.

After that, the 37-year-old would never let a moment pass without photographing her pups. 

“I definitely have an obsession,” she said. 

“My family have had sausage dogs since I was little, so there was never any other option for me.
