Who is HQ the Maltipoo?
HQ the Maltipoo is my adorable little troublemaker of a maltipoo puppy. She became an overnight internet sensation when I put her first video, Gotcha!, on Instagram in September, 2105. The video spread like wildfire and suddenly little HQ was famous! To date, the highest-viewed clip has over 63 million vine loops and counting (please note this is not my Vine account, Gotcha! was pirated several hundred times).

Why the videos?
HQ was quite the little handful as a puppy! I made these videos to submit them to Cesar Milan's dog training show, The Dog Whisperer. Luckily, with a lot of hard work and training, she outgrew (most of) her bad habits.
