More and more celebrities are joining the sensation that is Instagram everyday. Usually, it isn't a huge surprise when a celebrity joins the social-imaging site, but we're pretty confident no one saw the induction of 72-year-old Barbra Streisand coming.

To celebrate and christen her brand-new Instagram account, the singer posted a gorgeous photo of her and her beloved Coton de Tulear, Samantha.

Perched beautifully (and also stylishly) on an outdoor wicker chair, Streisand posed with her cute pup, perfectly complimented by the sunny garden background. How she manages to look so glamorous at the age of 72, we'll never know. All we can say is: Boy, that's one lucky dog.

During the promotion for her film The Guilt Trip (2012), Streisand revealed how smitten she was with her new dog.

"She's like the daughter I never had," the singer told the London Guardian, "She speaks English. She understands English, I swear to God."
