An Italian Greyhound who went viral on TikTok after her owner posted a video of her showing off the outfits she hasn’t been able to wear this year due to the pandemic has now offered a look at the spring wardrobe of the dog.

Instagram star @Tikatheiggy, who lives with her two owners in Montreal, Canada, has had over 25 million views after the short clip showed her wearing clothes including a canary yellow tracksuit and knitted jumpsuit in a shade of burnt sienna.

Tika’s post, hashtag #LoveItCouldntWearIt, drew a crowd of celebrity fans with Sharon Osbourne following her and Modern Family star Sofia Vergara copying the video with her own parody version.

Nonagenarian model Iris Apfel this week declared the adorable pooch, who turns ten next summer, “King of Unworn Fashion 2020”.

Tika’s latest Instagram post shows the couture-loving dog trying out some new styles, including a double bow tie and a pink shirt – for the “office”.

There’s also a sleek gray mac over monochrome jumpsuit and a more incongruous Halloween outfit.

The hilarious videos, narrated by Lorena Pages, show Tika speaking in a Spanish accent as the dog reveals his thoughts on the different outfits.

Speaking to Fashion Magazine, Tika’s owner, Thomas, one of her two fathers, said the family pet loves the attention from these shoots, saying: “She really is a diva in the real life and I’m trying to convey that online with his online persona. I’m not really making anything up.

Earlier this month, Tika experienced high-profile flattery when Sofía Vergara, who has 43.9 million social media followers, recreated the viral TikTok video.

“I had so many cute hotter outfits planned for this year that I couldn’t wear,” Vergara said on Instagram, adding, “So I just wanted to show you guys.” I love it, I couldn’t wear it!”

It was a smart way for the America’s Got Talent judge to showcase some of the styles from her latest clothing line with Walmart.

His owner says his wardrobe is actually a necessity rather than a fancy one, as Italian Greyhounds are “desert dogs” and need protection in a cold climate like Canada’s.
