The coddled canines are the beloved pets of nurse Abbie Sisson, 23, who has shelled out more than £25,000 on her pets.
Snaps of the nine pooches show them modeling the latest doggy apparel, relaxing in their very own swimming pool and stretching out over four poster dog beds.
The fancy pack consists of Chihuahuas Pixie, Tink, Sky, Murray, Maisy, Wendy, Lulu and Thelma, and petite Pomeranian, Dolly – who is thought to be the smallest of her breed in the UK, weighing just 3lbs.
Their account ‘Toosmallforteacups’ now has over 30K followers on Instagram with fans all over the world enchanted by the images of canine cuteness.
Abbie said: “I’ve spent at least £25,000 on my dogs but they are worth every single penny.
“The thing I like the most is that they are so loving they just want to spend time with you all the time.
"They just want to be sitting on your knee and cuddling up with you on the sofa, they are really, really loyal.
“I do think it is a lot of money but they are worth it to me.”
Abbie has been posting pictures of her pets ever since she got her first Chihuahua five-years-ago – but the account went viral after celebrities started liking and commenting on her pictures.
Abbie said: “Paris Hilton has liked one of our pictures, as has Charlotte from Geordie Shore, Emma Roberts, Lindsay Lohan and Georgia from The Only Way Is Essex.
“Rapper Agro Santos has commented on a few of the pictures and Mario Falcone from The Only Way Is Essex has sent messages about puppies before.”
The dogs have thousands of pounds worth of toys, are taken on trips all over the country and are set to start swimming lessons in a few weeks time.
And they even have their own personal groomer who does their nails and hair in the comfort of their own home.
Abbie said: “They prefer beds that are off the floor so we had them custom made with little stairs so they have their own little raised space.
“We have a paddling pool out in the summer for when they get warm with a little sun bathing area next to the pool.
“I have got some swimming lessons booked in that they will be going to in a couple of weeks so hopefully we will be able to fill the pool a little bit more.”
The dogs are sent gifts by their legion of adoring fans, some of who make couture clothing especially for the pint-size pedigrees.
“They’ve sent in pictures, baby grows, bunny rabbit outfits, little booties, everything,” explained Abbie.
“There is a lady who wanted my dogs to be the face of her clothing line and she was making little bow ties, custom made dresses and she sent them all gift wrapped.”
Abbie’s girls often have litters and the nurse has a constant stream of enquiries about the pedigree pooches.
But Abbie will only allow the puppies to go to suitable homes - ruling out households with children under ten or with large dogs.
And news of the high-class canines has spread far and wide with one of the puppies from a litter being sold to royalty in Dubai – where he now has his own yacht and personal maid.
Abbie said: “The lady wanted a Chihuahua and she couldn’t find any in Dubai that she liked.
“She was recommended our Chihuahuas so she came to pick up one of Sky’s puppies and he travelled over there on the aeroplane.
“Now he lives in Dubai where he has his own maid. We got pictures of him by the pool and on a yacht - so he is really well spoilt.
But although they might live the life of Riley now, not all of the dogs were given the best start in life.
Abbie rescued five of her dogs from neglectful homes, nursing them back to health and helping them to trust humans again.
One of the dog’s nails were so overgrown that they grew into the pads of her paws and left her unable to walk, while others were malnourished and distrustful.
Abbie said: “Thelma had been left outside in the garden. Her previous owners only wanted her for breeding and when she had a litter of puppies they froze to death.
“Lulu was rescued from a flat above a shop, she was in an awful condition and looked like a massive matt of fur.
“Wendy was rescued from a puppy farm. When we first got her she had no human contact whatsoever and she wouldn’t go next to anybody - she wouldn’t even walk across the floor.
“We used to set a camera so we knew that she was eating because she wouldn't eat when we weren’t in the room.
“She was absolutely terrified about humans so she has done remarkably well.
Abbie admits boyfriend Ben Newton, 33, sometimes comes second best to her pets.
Despite this he is also a fan of the dogs, although he draws a line at walking them on their pink leads.
Abbie said: "He makes out that he’s a macho bloke but he absolutely loves them too.
“The dogs are our family and we work our shifts around them to have as much time with them as we can.
“If we are watching television on the sofa, then they’ll all be all over me and Ben will be cramped up in the corner.
“He loves the dogs, he gets a little bit moody when they get their silly outfits and he will pretend to be mardy about them when they get all of the attention.
“But he absolutely adores them. He makes videos of them all the time and he has go all sorts of funny pictures of them on his phone.
“My mum thinks I’m mad to have so many dogs but they’re my babies and I’m already thinking about getting more.”
