RUFF LIFE: Pampered four-legged types filed into the CH Carolina Herrera boutique in Paris on Thursday night to fete the designer’s shaggy new Gaspar bag, named after the New York-based designer’s pet poodle — and resembling him, too.


Invited to bring their dogs, a mix of fashionable Europeans, and breeds ranging from bulldogs to terriers, mingled in the sprawling store.


“It’s a doggie bag,” filmmaker Simon Brook howled as his friend Lina Botero, daughter of renowned Colombian painter Fernando Botero, plopped a Gaspar on her shoulder.


Botero said she is currently pet-less, but grew up on a farm and is partial to big dogs. “The bigger the better,” she enthused, rattling off large breeds including Great Danes and German Shepherds.


Brook, funnily enough, doesn’t have a dog either and is preparing a comedy about divorce with a title Gaspar might not like: “You Keep the Cat.”
