I’ve been growing Cairo out since September to be used as a demo dog for an Asian Fusion seminar that happened last weekend. His head and body was done by Groom Team USA member, Olga Zabelinskaya. I was hiding under a table so he couldn’t see me while she was working on him. She did his head and ears SO. CUTE.

The picture with him attached to the car seat with the bow in is right after I got home from the seminar, and the two pictures below are from today when I groomed him to scissor his legs. (Of course it’s raining like crazy outside lol)
