HILARY SLOAN: Ella Bean is obviously priceless.
HILARY SLOAN: Good stay, good girl.
来认识下约克夏的名流 艾拉 宾
COMM: Meet Ella Bean, the jet-setting Yorkie
mix with a taste for the finer things in life.
HILARY SLOAN: I had this idea and thought
然后觉得 如果把它当成时尚圈名人 给她建一个社交平台 会很有意思
it would be really funny to create a social platform for her as if she was a fashion influencer.
COMM: The petite pooch now has 46,000 followers on Instagram.
NOAH SHULMAN: I don’t think Ella is any
more spoiled than any other normal person would spoil their dog; they’re like their
孩子养 知道吗 我们要跟艾拉一起去迈阿密和洛杉矶的漂亮度假村旅游了
children. We’ve gone on trips with Ella, you know, nice resorts in Miami and in LA.
HILARY SLOAN: I lead a business development
team for an online shopping website. I think because of what I do for a living and I bring
所以可以把她带在身边 我的意思是她会跟我去时装周 她最喜欢
her along with me, and by that I mean she’s come with me to Fashion Week. She prefers to drink
喝我的杯子 我猜 她大概是以这种方式来确定自己有主角光环
from my cup, I guess in that way she’s sort of established herself as a little bit of a diva.
COMM: But Ella’s story is one of rags to riches.
HILARY SLOAN: I rescued Ella 7-ish or 8-ish
years ago at the animal services about 2 days before she was set to be euthanised. She was
那时候 她污秽不堪 有一大串医疗记录 她的尾巴
in really rough shape, she had a number of medical conditions. She also needed her tail
还被割掉了 因为尾巴损坏 感染得实在太严重我真的做不到不救她
docked because it was so broken and mangled and infected. I just couldn’t leave her there.
HILARY SLOAN: The type of conditions that
puppy mills keep the dogs that they breed in are incredibly inhumane and often get busted
for inhumane treatment.
HILARY SLOAN: The contrast of Ella’s life
和现在的样子 简直一个天上 一个地下
between the Puppy Mill and her life now it, it couldn’t be more different. She was really
nervous around people and other dogs. Who she is today is in complete contrast with
她很健康 很乐观开朗 很活波好动
that. She’s healthy, she’s outgoing, she’s vivacious.
NOAH SHULMAN: As soon as the camera comes
out, she knows what to do. She literally knows what to do, she sits and poses. Having met
去跟一众粉丝见面 有点疯狂 但是 你懂得 真的很好玩儿
all these fans, it’s kind of crazy but it’s, you know, it’s, it’s really fun. We, we
don’t take ourselves too seriously.
COMM: And having such a large following, means
Ella’s got to be photo-ready at all times.
HILARY SLOAN: Definitely has more clothes
than other dogs would have. You’re such a good girl! She needed to have a really,
really on point wardrobe, and nothing out there was really satisfying sort of my needs,
所以 我就开始自己给她做衣服 最终目标是
so I started sowing my own clothes for her. The goal is eventually that people will be
able to get Ella Bean’s leather jackets. Most of the things that she wears that are
大部分衣服都很搞笑 其他的衣服 是我们
really ridiculous, I’m hand-making them myself. Other items, we get gifted in exchange
for promotion on our social media. We also use her platform to do consistent education
about her history, coming from a puppy mill. We’ve raised money for the National Mill
Dog Rescue, which supports puppy mill rescue. I think what people really respond to is,
对 这只狗因为搞笑 现在当上名流了
yes, there is this humorous element of this dog living this fashion luxury lifestyle,
但是 同时 她也在回馈社会
but also she’s giving back. but also,she’s giving back.
