We spoke to the man behind the world's best Vine account

If you've spent any time on Twitter over the past couple of months the chances are you've come across this dog.

Maple, a border collie/golden retriever/Sheltie cross has become one of the most-loved Vine stars for the way her owner involves her in his acoustic guitar sessions.

Sometimes Maple is chill. spoke to Maple's human, a multi-instrumentalist from New England who goes by the name of Trench.

He said he adopted Maple as a puppy from a rescue shelter, and they "bonded immediately and have been inseparable best friends ever since".

She enjoys climbing into my lap while I play the guitar and usually falls asleep, the music seems to soothe her.

Trench said Maple is "very intelligent and picks up on things quickly".

"I worked with her for about an hour the night before filming the Vine where she holds my hand with her paw, teaching her how to do it at the right time," he said.

"When we filmed the video the next day we got the shot on the first take. The majority of Vines with her are done without any guidance though, and I'll just record for a while until getting a shot that matches the feel of the song. She's asleep in my lap in a lot of my vines as well, and you can sometimes hear her little snores if you listen close."

We've been having a lot of fun recently with Maple joining in playing instruments alongside me, and although she does a lot of it on her own she sometimes gets a little help.

Trench said it had been "pretty surreal" to see his videos go viral, but that he's just happy people enjoy them.

He told us he couldn't pick a favourite Vine, but that this one was the most fun to film.

Check Trench out on Vine, or on Instagram or YouTube.
