Who would our celebs be without their adoring audience? Fans and followers are really what makes a celebrity. PETS decided to go out and have a chat with our most loyal readers to dig their views and best gossip on who’s who and what they think we should all be wearing. Our first profile is on Gringo the Pug and here’s what he has to say:
First of all, could you start by introducing yourself?
My name’s Gringo, I’m a pug from North London and an avid celeb-dog follower. My human is Ruyi and she gives me all the cuddles.
Describe yourself in three words.
Short, wide, witty.
How would you describe your personal style?
I’m kinda going through a tough phase with my body at the moment. I’ve been eating way too many dog biscuits and really need to get back on track with my walks. I guess I therefore like to wear loose things; wide harnesses, maybe a kerchief but NEVER any tight, knitted jumpers.
What is your favourite S/S 2018 pet trend?
I mean, I’d never really wear it myself but I’m really digging onesies at the moment. They suck all the fur in but I think to look good in one you’d need longer legs than I have.
Can you let us know of any Instagram accounts you follow?
What are your top tricks so keep up to date with our fav celebs?
Every morning I wake up and the first thing I do is scroll through all my favourite pets’ Instragram stories! They’re a super great way find out immediate info on what they’re doing, wearing, or even eating! Keeping up with all the pets I admire is a really motivation start to my day. But then for those times where I need more in-depth and structured news I will always turn to Pets Mag. It has the 411 on all the pets you need to care about.
Who is your biggest inspiration in the animal kingdom?
I’m going to have to say Ryder the Samoyed. As a fellow plus-sized pup, I love seeing my kind being represented and think it’s important for pets to see that skinny-minnie Chihuahuas are not like the average dog!
What is your favourite scandal story so far?
A couple of years ago Doug the Pug was in London and came to visit The Batman Pug– it was all over my Instagram feed. They looked really cute and happy together but apparently Batman chased Doug’s tail so ferociously that he bit it, leaving Doug in tears. I was a real fan of him before but I can’t believe he did that to a fellow brother! The day I heard I blocked him off Insta, I don’t really want to see him pretending to be nice to all of his followers- it’s all fake!
Any celebrity crush we should know about?
Not at the moment, I’m at a place in my life where I want to just focus on my owner and myself- she gives me all the love I need!
