Billie Valentine is a chihuahua rescued during the Katrina disaster in New Orleans. He has become a famous modeling dog. To this day, he still dislikes the rain. But now that he lives in San Diego he doesn't have to worry about that much.
His life before Katrina is a mystery. But his new owner soon discovered that he didn't enjoy playing with toys, though if he saw you take out a camera, he started posing. And so a star was born.
Every year he has a new calendar which helps raise money for other rescue dogs. There are lots of photos of Billie in costumes, quite fun, but I especially liked this portrait of Billie getting a bath and just being a regular dog.
