Momo here. I know it has been awhile since my last post, but as you know – divas are busy. I’ve been traveling, photo shooting, and all-in-all just being pretty fabulous. Since Dad is holding a Model Search with LIFE+DOG, I thought I’d take time out of my busy schedule to give all the entrants some tips. Lucky you.
First, get yourself bathed and groomed. Stinky is not a fashion statement. I mean, look at Mickey Rourke – one day the guy is fashion model worthy, the next he’s jacked up and looking like a pro wrestler. (Downgrade).
Second, practice your poses! As Tyra Banks always says, “smile with your eyes.” (Wait, you’ve never heard that? Oh. Em. Gee. Quickly, go back and watch all ten zillion seasons of America’s Next Top Model.) Go ahead, try it. Not like that… no, you’re doing it wrong. Wow – do I have to show you everything? Here is the perfect model face – I call it my Pooch Steel.
Third, find a signature move. Sure there are tons of pugs in the world – but there is only one that always sticks her tongue out and is named Momo. Yep – that’s copyrighted, so don’t go sticking your tongue out now.
Fourth, get your beauty sleep! You need 15-16 hours AT THE LEAST. No one wants to see you if you're off of your game - or if you have a ton of crusty sleep in your eyes.
Lastly, don’t always look at the camera. I like to look off to the side and look like I’m really yearning for something - you know, like world peace or something. To get that look – I think about bacon. Works everytime.
Make sure to check out other puppy models for tips too – I personally LOVE Isabella (that girl is the Heidi Klum of puppy modeling) and am so jealous of her gorgeous hair. Hm... do you think they can put extensions in mine?
Now, take these suggestions and go work it! Good luck!
