LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Ms. Percy is an eight year old "classy" and "sassy" pup whose stealing hearts this Valentine's weekend, and everyone knows her name.

"When she comes down the hall, the residents know it." said Tana Pierce, the fashionable pup's owner. "This is her Whispering Pines. They should change the name to 'Percy's Place'."

Don't call her just a plain d-o-g, she is Ms. Percy.

"Am I in your shot," Pierce asks Ms. Percy. "Excuse me," she laughs.

Pierce is the activites director at Whispering Pines Lodge. When she comes to work, Ms. Percy is right there behind her. Being a socialite, Ms. Percy wouldn't miss the Lodge's Valentine's party for the world.

"I don't know what I'd do without her if I didn't have her," said Pierce. "She's my child. She has to go with me up and down the halls when I visit the residents she has to check on them and make sure she's ok. She thinks she's Elizabeth Taylor and most of the residents tell her that she's prettier than Elizabeth Taylor."

From photo shoots to glamour christmas shots.

"She's Ms. Elizabeth Taylor," exclaimed Pierce. "She needs professional shots done," she laughed.

She is one pug that's got it going on. After all, she is Ms. September, the cutest pet pin up you'll ever see.

"She has a different dress that she wears to work everyday and she always has to have her hair bow to color coordinate with her dresses."

Don't be fooled! Ms. Percy isn't just a fashion statement. It is the love she gives to residents that makes her so adorable.

"As soon as they see Percy their whole face just lights up," said Pierce. 

She's a pupalious pup whose all pooped out. Tana said if you're around Ms. Percy, try not to mention the "D" word. She doesn't like being called dog.
