Gentleman Norman’s name tells you all you need to know. This tiny pooch is a class act. With adorable looks to rival Boo the -ahem- “cutest dog in the world” and an attitude that is quickly gaining admirers, Norman is slowly becoming the next big little dog star.
To help out his human fans, the gent has published “Gentleman Norman: How To Be A Man” — full of helpful tips that have guided him through his glamorous life. He was kind enough to offer us a look at some of his manly advice. It’s something every gentleman-in-training should see.
Norman’s Classy Canine Credo: “One very important thing I would like you to know about me, as a man, I have boundaries. I do not do silly costumes and cutesy sunglasses or hats. I prefer golf shirts, cashmere sweaters and the occasional jacket.”
His Color of Choice: “Real men wear pink.”
Lessons to Live By: “Just smile adoringly.”
Also: “NEVER answer the question … ‘Does this make my butt look big?'”
And: “I’ve discovered, it’s not so bad being the little guy. ‘Big’ is an attitude.'”
The Smell of Success: “Remember, cologne is only for people for who get close to you, not for everyone on the elevator.”
A Word to Fellow Gentlemen: “Remember the importance of a breath mint. Keep them in your man-bag.”
Also: “There is nothing wrong with a man-bag. It’s practical.”
On Real Men: “A good man is not too proud to ask for directions.”
