How to Be a Gentleman — According to a Pomeranian

By babbleeditors |

Just when we thought chivalry was dead, Norman appears with his sophisticated man bag and coat of well-groomed fur to make us swoon. Fist-pumping, flipflop-wearing guys today could learn a thing or two from this stylish 12-year-old Pomeranian who is more polished than Prince William — and more adorable than Justin Bieber.

Just one look at this pup leaves women everywhere wondering: why can’t all men be like Norman?

Lucky for you (or your potential suitors, rather), Norman and his leading lady, Laura Martella, wrote Gentleman Norman: How to Be a Man, the ultimate guide to grooming, dressing, relationship maintenance, and male etiquette. Take a sneak peek inside this must-read book and check out some of Norman’s tips for becoming a true gentleman, after the jump!

The Rules of Male Etiquette — According to a Pomeranian

Own your size

I've discovered ... it's not so bad being the little guy.
"BIG" is an attitude.

Excerpted from the book Gentleman Norman: How to Be a Man (Gentleman Norman, 2012) with permission of the author.


Laura Martella published her first book, Gentleman Norman: How to be a Man, co-authored by her beloved and well-bred Pomeranian, Gentleman Norman, in Spring 2012. Martella has always said that Norman is the perfect man, and his twelfth birthday this year proved there was no better time to share his wisdom with the world. Martella currently resides in Rancho Santa Fe, California with her husband Mike and two Pomeranians, Norman and Howard.
