Here’s what Arnold Schwarzenegger’s been up to this summer: partying, lifting weights and Tweeting.

While he’s been posting to Twitter for some time, the former governor of California only earlier this week began using Instagram, and he’s making the most of it.

“Am I doing it right?” he posted on Tuesday, sharing a photo of him smiling and picking up a kangaroo.

The Expendables 2 star met the marsupial over the weekend at Hollywood talent agent Michael Kives’s house, which also played host to an alligator and possible new couple Katy Perry and John Mayer.

But while the Schwarzenegger’s love for animals was clearly on display, he’s most often spotted with one closer to home: his pet dog.
