about me :: My name is Cookie, and I'm a 3 year old Red Toy Poodle.
nicknames :: Pumpkin
how did you meet your human :: My family adopted me from a foster home. I was originally rescued from a puppy mill.
take us through a day in the life of Cookie :: Some days are just normal dog days, filled with plenty of naps, treats, and walks. And other days are very busy ones - they include attending various event, shows, and modeling for different projects and brands.
who is your favorite artist :: My favorite artist is Banksy. I love the way that he creates his artwork, using satire to send a message.
how would you describe your style :: A minimal, sophisticated hipster.

about me :: My full name is Ella Bean, and I'm a Yorkie mix. I'm a rescue so we aren't exactly sure, but I'm likely between 7 - 8 years old.
nicknames :: Beanie, The Bean, Beanie Baby, EB
how did you first meet your human :: My lady human saw me in a cage at the shelter and I wiggled my ears at her. I've always been quite charming and strategic in that way. My lady human understood this message and pulled me from the shelter, we've been together since Valentine's Day of 2008 (I'm definitely the best Valentine's Day gift she's ever received!).
take us through a day in the life of Ella Bean :: I always start every morning with some deep yoga stretching and a brisk walk. I'll have a paleo breakfast of duck or rabbit. Then, I'll spend some time focusing on my social media channels and engaging with my fans. After a nap or three, I'll spend some time on my plans for a luxury canine outerwear line, which I'm hoping to get into production soon. This is all assuming of course, I don't have any photo shoots, appearances or travel planned.
how would you describe your style :: I suppose the best way to describe my style would be 'bougie hipster'. I love an edgy vibe, but I really appreciate high quality materials, soft fabrics and interesting design. Sunglasses are also a key part of my look. It's very to me important that I have something soft to sit on. Fleece, cashmere and faux fur are all acceptable materials. I've ensured the humans designed their home to accommodate this need.
what's the toughest thing about being a dog model :: Paws down, it's the beauty regime. I'm so jealous of the Chihuahuas and Frenchies of the world who can just roll out of bed looking fabulous. I require at least bi-weekly bathing (totally traumatic) and fluffing. I also have a full grooming every 4-6 weeks to maintain my coif.
what would you most like people to know about rescue dogs :: Humble beginnings do not indicate the quality of our character, limit our ability to love or preclude us from stardom. I hope all humans seeking a new family member will consider adoption.

about me :: My name is Walter Cronkite. I'm a French Bulldog, and I just turned 8 - but age ain't nothin' but a number.
nicknames :: My pawrents like to call me Mr. Pig, the King, or Little Man...among other things.
how did you first meet your human :: I came to my forever home in 2008 via pure luck. The person who originally had dibs on me wound up moving and couldn't take me...so my pawrents swooped in...and the rest is history.
how did you get your name :: My high intelligence and commanding voice (j/k, I don't ever use my voice unless a vacuum cleaner is involved).
take us through a day in the life of Walter :: Well the first thing I do when I wake up is read the news, duh, and scroll through the 'gram, catching up with my friends. Then I go back to sleep, either inside on the sunny spot or outside on the patio. My ma is a freelancer and often works from home, so sometimes I'll wake up and drop a little knowledge on her (yo, Ma, did you know Frenchies REALLY like cheese? And I'M a Frenchie?). Then I go back to sleep. I'd say that, like Peter Gibbons, in any given week I probably only do about fifteen minutes of real, actual work.
what's your favorite new source, mr. cronkite :: cheese.com - gotta know all about my favorite food. I also dig Last Week Tonight with John Oliver! A John Oliver segment on cheese would be a dream come true.
describe your style :: I Aside from newsworthy (ha ha!)? I'm like a cross between the OG Walker Cronkite and Brooklyn #hypebeast ; I like my collared shirts, and mix local brands like Billy Wolf, independent brands like Wagwear, and small brands made just for Frenchie body types (we're hard to fit, with our short bods and barrel chests). I inherited my dad's love of sneakers - yo, Nike, where my dog-kicks at?
