VIERA — It’s a well-known fact that swimsuit model Kate Upton loves dogs. Recently, she even championed a pricey collar that acts as a Fitbit for dogs. Now, though, the stunner’s pooch Harley is getting into the fame game as well!
Harley, a boxer, has his own new Instagram account (therealharleyupton) and already has more than 8,600 followers! On the account, Harley can be seen dressing up, relaxing around the house and even floating on a pool raft.
As it happens, this isn’t Harley’s first brush with celebrity status. He posed with his Space Coast-native human Kate on her Harper’s Bazaar Singapore cover in January of 2016 and even starred in a web series entitled “Kate & Harley’s Adventures” in connection with the aforementioned Fitbit-style-collar.
While Kate, 25, may stroll catwalks professionally, she’s made it clear that “dog-walks” are more her style, and has often been seen out on the town with Harley.
“When you’re a dog mom, it doesn’t matter if you’re going to an event or not,” she explained recently. “You still have to walk them. They still have to go to the bathroom.”
And this—Upton revealed—is where she gets upstaged.
“[Harley’s] the best distraction,” she said. “People are drawn more to him than me. He’s so good looking.”
Upton is perhaps being humble about the allocation of the public’s attention. While 8,600 followers is certainly impressive, Upton herself stands at over 5 million followers, suggesting that the marvelous model is still the bigger draw of the two.
The pair have been together for 7 years, and certainly seem to be all but inseparable.
“Everyone was laughing because I was telling them how his personality changes,” Upton said of her canine friend. “We go poolside. He’ll follow any good-looking girl who passes. The guy’s gotta flirt.”
Judging from that, it seems that Harley has the right “dog mom” for him!
