There's a dog roaming the streets in Montreal that turns heads everywhere she goes. The diva Tika the Iggy, an Italian greyhound, has recently become the trendiest fashion icon in the doggy world. Her two gay dads dress her up in fashionable clothing, ranging from faux fur to onesies and tracksuits, in order to warm her up and protect her from the relatively cold Canadian climate, so it's not only just for the aesthetics, but also has practical reasons. Since Italian Greyhounds are desert dogs with relatively short fur, from about October to May, it's too cold to go out naked.
Despite the practical necessity, her two dads love to have fun with it, and try to dress Tika the Iggy in very trendy clothes. They find them at local stores, as her shape is very unique, and clothes from general stores just don't seem to fit right. And boy oh boy, don't they fit her just perfectly? She looks like a lean Italian model in them, if I dare say so myself.
She looks so good, in fact, that it caught the attention of fashion giants such as Vogue and other trend-setting media outlets out there. Tika the Iggy even gets paid for her photo sessions, making her a true professional model. But it's not just for the money. Her ever-growing media presence raises awareness about the LGTBQ community, as she's a proud advocate of them, and one of her preferred pronouns is Kween.
Her dads say that her diva personality is not an act, and she's a true princess in all aspects of her life. She sleeps for 22 hours a day due to her age. Apparently, she's nine and a half years old, and she can be deemed one of the more successful examples of senior modeling (but don't dare call her old).
Tika the Iggy recently rose from prominence to stardom, as one of her videos went viral on TikTok and Instagram, racking up millions of views across both platforms. Her Instagram followers rose to 1 million in no time, and she has become a phenomenon dominating the world of dog fashion. And good for her, she deserves it!
