So…  It’s a Sunday and your out looking for something to do in Pasadena?

We had a friend who was entered in the Creative Grooming Competition at Groom Expo West, so we thought we’d have a look around. As Poodle lovers, we knew we would be in for a treat.

On a beautiful sunny day in January, look at what we came across at the Pasadena Convention Center.
