Pet Sounds is back! Aashton shares about the amazing Agnes – she sounds so cool!…
“Agnes is a 5 month old French Bulldog puppy, but I don’t really think of her as a dog. I don’t think I’d ever really describe myself as a ‘dog-person’ – I’m not one of those outdoors-y types that owns wellies or anything – but I have always been into the idea of having a cute little pet to chill with. As a kid I was really into those alien-as-pet themed sci-fi movies. Gizmo from Gremlins is probably my favourite but E.T. was also a pretty awesome pet and I even thought the Puckmarin from Flight of the Navigator was cute as hell too.
So yeah, maybe its just a hangover from childhood but I kind of think of Agnes as this cool little non-human companion that I hang out with and a french bulldog is probably as close to Gizmo as you’re gonna get in the real world.
Frenchies are also good studio dogs – as long as you take them out for a couple of hours exercise each day, she’ll pretty much just spend the rest of the time lying around. She seems to love music, at any volume – she can sleep through a blizzard of techno, which I find really impressive. The only music that really riles her, for some reason, is Trey Songz. Its not even an R’n’B thing either, its just Trey Songz; the guy starts singing and she just loses her shit – barks like the worlds ending until you turn him off. It’s one of her many quirks – she cracks me up.”
