By    |   Friday, 08 Aug 2014 11:26 AM

Barbra Streisand officially entered the world of social media this week when she joined Instagram, and the award-winning singer and actress commemorated the occasion with a stylish photo of her posing with her Coton de Tuléar dog, Samantha.

Streisand posted the picture Wednesday with the simple caption: "Hello Instagram . . . isn't my Samantha just precious?"

"The world welcomed the one and only Barbra Streisand to Instagram on Wednesday," Time magazine reported. "The 72-year-old singer-songwriter/actress/producer/director/national treasure shared the pic below with her 1,699 followers, and we’re already thinking it’s time to start calling her posts Babstagrams." 

The photo has generated more than 5,000 "likes" since the posting while Streisand's account overall has drawn more than 19,500 followers. She is currently following 13 other people.

Streisand's Instagram account links back to her website, which includes a button for sales of her "Back to Brooklyn" CD and DVD, numerous fan websites, and her Streisand Foundation. The website also includes a blog, the latest post titled "The U.S. Must Lead on Climate Threat."

"It's fitting that Streisand . . . would want to post about her beloved Coton de Tuléar," ABC's "Good Morning America" noted. "When she was promoting her film 'The Guilt Trip' last year, she gushed" over her dog.

Streisand has said in the past, according to The Independent, that she and James Brolin, her husband, purchased a truck with a back seat just so Samantha can tag along on trips.

"[Samantha's] the most beautiful thing you've ever seen," she told the U.K. newspaper last year. "She's like the daughter I never had. She speaks English. She understands English I swear to God. She'll come up to me and go 'mmm' it sounds like a baby. That means she wants water. Or she'll just look at me with those eyes and then she wants a treat. She always comes with us. I would never leave her."

Entertainment Weekly announced earlier this month that Streisand may direct and star in the film version of the musical "Gypsy" with Richard LaGravenese.
