LOL... Your post made me laugh bigredpoodle! So I thought I'd correct youSee what a good eye I have HA HA :doh:
Actually they did have a yarn dog competition at that particular show - as well as many other events - not only professional grooming contests... that is why they had the yarn dogs there. They also had a trade show there along with multiple other events including dancing with dogs etc.Those dogs were the real dogs at the show. This was a professional grooming contest of groomers from around the globe. Now there were one or two in those shots that were not real but mot were. Also very few schools use yarn dogs they just are to much cost and no profit for the school.
