There’s a street vendor in Vietnam that appears to be above his competition. Mainly because the merchant looks so appealing, he would probably persuade you even into buying sand in a desert.
He’s a 3-year-old cat and his owner, Le Quoc Phong, calls him Dog. Together they’ve been spotted in a local market quite a few times. Like a true businessman, Dog is always well-dressed, looking stylish while he’s earning a living. Turns out, he’s also a rockstar. “Dog loves ice cream, traveling and sleeping,” Le Quoc Phong told Bored Panda. “He also has a lot of girlfriends and a lot of children in the country.”
“My little cat loves taking pictures. He’s also very cooperative when wearing the costumes.” Le Quoc Phong gave his pet such a peculiar name because it usually breathes and acts like a pup. That’s why Dog has its mouth open in most of the shots! His images are making headlines not only in Vietnam, but in Thailand and China as well. Le Quoc Phong says some people think Dog is uncomfortable in the clothes he weares, but they couldn’t be further from the truth. “Dog feels very cosy [in these costumes] and can walk normally.” Scroll down to check out how this busy feline is getting ahead in life
What makes Dog so lovable and adorable is the fact that he’s super outgoing and he doesn’t seem to mind that his owner dresses him up in various costumes. Of course, seeing a cute cat in a costume would make anyone want to stop and chat.
Dog is a Scottish Fold who loves going to work with his dad. Le Quoc says he’s an amazing work partner, but also a wonderful friend and snuggle buddy
Dog has started gain quite the fan base. When he started gaining popularity at the local market, Le Quoc decided to set up an Instagram account for him. Since the account was opened, Dog has amassed almost 30,000 followers!
So, why is Dog named Dog? Le Quoc says it’s because he acts like one! He pants with his mouth open all the time and loves attention.
“Dog loves ice cream, traveling and sleeping,” Le Quoc Phong told Bored Panda. “He also has a lot of girlfriends and a lot of children in the country.”
Funny enough, Dog isn’t crazy about shrimp. Maybe because he’s around it all day long.
When Dog isn’t selling fish and shrimp, he might be selling meat or vegetables. No matter what he’s selling, it’s guaranteed that he’s going to be looking adorably dapper. There’s no way you could avoid stopping to say hello.
After work is over, you will probably find Dog wearing something a bit more stylish and fancy.
But, in his free time, Dog also likes to help out by directing traffic. Another hobby is dressing in fun costumes like a pirate or superhero. There really isn’t an outfit that Dog can’t pull off. He’s quite the trendsetter.
His outfits really just depend on his mood that day.
There’s no doubt that every single picture brings a smile to your face.
Dog will never turn down a nice dinner out at a nice restaurant.
“My little cat loves taking pictures. He’s also very cooperative when wearing the costumes,” Le Quoc said, assuring those who might think he’s uncomfortable. “Dog feels very cosy [in these costumes] and can walk normally.”
It’s not surprising that Dog is a total ladies’ man.
Despite all of the costumes, attention, and his name, Dog’s favorite thing is just being a cat.
