Bodhi the Menswear Dog Meets Rachael Raythe daily dish
Do you like to dress up your dog? If your canine's couture is truly stylish, the mutt could gain enough attention to wind up on TV. That's what happened to our pal Bodhi, the dog who makes menswear look better than a lot of human men can. Bodhi's star continues to rise, with appearances in Esquire and GQ, and now a visit to "The Rachael Ray Show."
Bodhi is a 4-year-old Shiba Inu who lives in New York City and possesses what his owners describe as a "panache for all things style." That panache has paid off big time in terms of online influence. The dog has become one of the most notable pets on Instagram, amassing more than 68,000 followers as of this writing. That popularity has led to even more success and opportunities for Bodhi and his family.
"The site has somewhat become a source of income," said Bodhi's owner, David Fung, 29. "My wife and I have both become freelancers so we do work on the side, but the advance we got from the book deal, and various advertising opportunities from the site, photoshoots, paid events, etc. all help pay the bills. Aside from the blog, and the book, we're also currently working on a canine fashion line; menswear-inspired clothes for dogs."
A savvy dog like Bodhi isn't hard to find online. Visit him on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr.
