Day in the Life: Pawfluencer

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!

Morning


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!

Day in the life of a pet influencer

Mid-morning


Just like with my friends, few things get me as excited as the prospect of a nice treat. Crunchy or chewy, long-lasting or instantly gratifying, biscuits, banana or blueberries — especially frozen on a hot day! — I’ll take ’em all. Of course, they don't come for free, and occasionally a mutt’s gotta do what a mutt’s gotta do. I can pull a sad face with the best of them, but the sure-fire winner is to throw in a little trick or two. Sitting nicely to attention is for beginners, but give a big smile with the pink tongue hanging out, offer to shake paws — just like that, you’re on the way to Treatsville!

Afternoon & Evening


After eating, the afternoon is all about nap time. A cheeky siesta lets me paws for thought and recharge the batteries before more adventures. Find a little spot in the shade, under a tree or a table, and just relax.


After that, one of my great pleasures is lazily watching a movie as Mum pretends she’s ‘working from home’. What could be better than three hours of Jurassic Bark with a huge tub of pup-corn?! I love a dog-umentary too, like 101 Dalmatians or Lady and the Tramp. I mean, I've always thought that I could make it in Hollywood. Sometimes I imagine myself on the cover of Vanity Fur…


Anyway, it’s been lovely chatting, but I’m starting to feel a little husky. Speak to you later!’
