He’s got attitude and he knows how to use it – that’s why Justin Bieber is my kinda guy.

My favorite Bieber look is a punked up pompadour, cool varsity jacket and stark white T-shirt. It also never hurts to see that pained, puppy dog expression on his face. He’s got it down! I’ve tried pulling that one when my owners are chowing down on steak and I’m left to chomp at my kibble.

But, it just doesn’t work. Maybe if I had Bieber’s charisma I’d get somewhere. For now, I’m happy to bask in my Bieber Fever with a healthy dose of “Boyfriend” or “As Long As You Love Me” and call it a day. My owner adores this heartthrob, so I’m exposed to Bieber tunes day and night.

Recently, he’s been called out for being rowdy and misbehaving (not unlike some dogs I know). But his mentor and trainer (if you will), Usher, recently told the Ellen audience: “He’s a teenager having to live his life in front of a camera. Imagine if you had to do that as a teenager.”



I’m with Usher on that one. I know I love being anonymous here at home with my owners. And I’m happy I can go out for a walk without paparazzi popping out around every corner to see what I might be doing – which could, truthfully, be pretty embarrassing.

And I am truly happy to be able to just stare up at the TV and see Justin Bieber do his thing on The Voice or some music awards show and know that the most stressful thing I had to do to get there was to bark until someone switched over to the right channel.

I’m also pretty sure I’d look a little silly sporting a pompadour, varsity jacket and white T-shirt!
