THIS LOOKS LIKE the type of dog Paris Hilton would carry in her purse.

She’s petite, fashionable, cute and a bit of a show-off. The dog, I mean, although those adjectives certainly describe Paris as well.

But this fashion conscious, chic Yorkyshire resides far from hip Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Baby lives in Faribault, Minn., where I saw her strolling recently along Central Avenue on our first really cold autumn evening.

Typically, dogs don’t draw a second look from me. But Baby, well, who could miss her strutting her stuff in a cotton candy pink turtleneck?

One-year-old Baby posed nicely for my camera, until she apparently decided she’d had enough. I don’t know for certain, but I expect she was tired of the paparazzi hounding her.

Enough of this already, Baby seems to say as she turns away from the camera.
