In a special edition of The Style Sheet’s Day in the Life series, we hear from a wonderful pawfriend, Remy the Samoyed, who spends a day around Starstreet Precinct.
So, I may be a certified paw-fluencer with more than 100,000 followers on Instagram, but I haven’t talked that much about myself until today. I’m Remy, a 5-year-old Samoyed. Back in the day, my family came from Siberia, where we were working dogs, but I think I’m more suited to the celebrity life!
I'm very lucky to be part of a loving family here in Hong Kong, as my paw-rent got me as a rescue from the amazing people at a charity called Lifelong Animal Protection. They work to ensure that every animal has a good home — what’s not to love about that?! If you want to adopt a fur baby yourself, there are plenty of fantastic organisations in Hong Kong that help you do just that — The Style Sheet’s round-up of places to adopt is a paw-fect source of information.
I didn’t have the best start in life, to be honest. I was raised in a puppy mill, meaning I was malnourished, covered in ticks and kept in a cage. But thankfully I'm now in tip-top health, as you can tell from my beautiful fluffy coat and cheeky smile!
Anyway, there are few things I like doing better than getting snout and about with my two- and four-legged friends, especially around Starstreet as it’s super friendly to us canines. This is me starting the day outside the paw-esome Elephant Grounds — they have some great tables outside where I can chill as Mum sips on a latte to wake herself up in the morning. And if any of that creamy foam happens to make its way towards me on the tip of a finger.... well, a dog's not gonna say no!
