Luke Kavanagh always thought his gorgeous Afghan hound Tea was ‘far too pretty to keep at home’. He was a bit surprised when Tea’s picture he posted on social media was shared 1 million times.
After Tea became an Instagram sensation, Kavanagh was approached by a dog food brand Royal Canin who asked if she would be their ‘spokesdog’. In addition, she was booked for and ad campaign for Harriot and Hounds dog perfume.
“Even our weekend walks draw a crowd. She pretends she doesn’t need the attention, but she definitely loves it, just like any supermodel.” But other than a few jobs here and there, Kavanagh says Tea is already in retirement.
”I reached a point where showing (grooming and show day) was taking me away from spending time with my family and I want to prioritize them over campaigning my dog”.
Nowadays the father-of-two is focused on his two Staffordshire terriers, as the maintenance of their short hair is way lower, taking less time to prepare for dog shows.
”I have such a special bond with Tea & we have shared a lifetime of wonderful moments together.”
This is a photo of Luke Kavanagh’s Afghan hound Tea that was shared 1 million times, making the pooch an internet sensation!
“I guess people were mostly drawn to [the photo] because of her silky coat coupled with that dignified look that Tea has.”
Since then, Tea modeled for a dog food brand Royal Canin and booked herself a gig in an ad campaign for Harriot and Hounds dog perfume.
But Tea is in retirement now, because her owner simply can’t spend so much time grooming the pet.
Nevertheless, she is still his sweetheart: “I have such a special bond with Tea & we have shared a lifetime of wonderful moments together.”
