He’s got quite a following. But if you follow him, he likely won’t follow you back. When a big personality collides with interminable cuteness, you can’t blame a guy for being selective with his social media picks. With more than 6,800 followers on Instagram, this lil’ fella with a big Hollywood name proves good things come in small packages. If you haven’t “met” him already, Stuntman Mike (@stuntman.mikey) is my favorite pooch to follow through @maplegrovemagazine.
The 5-year-old Yorkie-Biewer Terrier mix is owned by Abby Jimenez, owner of Nadia Cakes in Maple Grove, Woodbury and Palmdale, CA. and author of The Friend Zone, in which Stuntman Mike appears. Jimenez says he also has a few cameos in another one of her titles, The Happy Ever After Playlist.
Should any of her books make it to the big (or small) screen, or some producer recognizes his “It Factor” for a biopic, Jimenez doesn’t think casting for Stuntman Mike’s role will be difficult. “Stuntman Mike would play himself in the movie,” she says. “Nobody else could pull it off.” Agreed!
Regardless of his acting future, one never knows if Stuntman Mike will need to create a dating profile. I thought I’d get the ball rolling with a few personal questions.
Walks on the beach or Quiet nights at home
My own bed or My owner’s bed (“My owner’s bed IS my bed.”)
Pajamas or Au naturel
Leader of the pack or Passive pooch
Dog food (“I never eat table scraps.”) or Table scraps
Cream cheese (!) or Doggie treats
Best in Show or Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show
Clifford or Snoopy
What’s scarier: a trip to the vet or The Roomba? (“The Roomba doesn’t scare me.”)
What’s worse: thunder (“I hate thunder.”) or Sharing my toys?
