A model’s life can be ruff.

Just ask Mikey, an 11-year-old pug and professional model, who graces the cover of the June issue of Real Simple magazine.

After striking poses, the wrinkly pooch scoured the floor of the photo studio, sniffed the legs of some modern furniture and poked his little nose around the photo props. How do we know this? Because the magazine’s team attached a camera to the dog’s collar so he could record all the behind-the-scenes action from his low level. Watch the video below for a peek from Instagram, and for the full (and even more adorable!) version, click here.

Should the modeling gigs dry up, we’ve decided that Mikey’s next career should be with the Secret Service. A dog this curious would be an asset to the President’s security detail! (As long as he gets along with Sunny and Bo, that is.)

Mikey’s new issue of Real Simple magazine is on newsstands now.
