What was the first picture uploaded to Instagram?

What was the first picture posted to Instagram? Was it food? A beautiful sunset? Was "selfie" even a word yet?

On July 16, 2010, Instagram co-founder and CEO Kevin Systrom uploaded the first picture in Instagram history. 

"This picture of a golden retriever was taken at a taco stand called 'Tacos Chilakos,' and the foot belongs to Systrom’s girlfriend, according to a spokesperson for Instagram," reports Time. "The name of the dog and its owner are unknown."

The picture itself features no caption.
