From Mikaela about our logo dog Dexter:
In 2012 I completed trade school and went to work at a salon that was in the same space as my salon is. We did various grooming for Boone County Animal Shelter and we did clean ups for dogs that needed to be spiffed up to help their chances at getting adopted. In came dexter who was very uppidity and excited. He was in a new place, with new people. He didn't like anyone touching his paws, that were red and raw from running, he didn't have black paw padding in some places. I easily connected with him, he let me work on him and no one else. He liked being scratched behind the ears. I didn't have a dog at the time, until dexter walked into that shop. We have a bond that is unbreakable. Today, he went back to the salon where we first met. Although it looks VERY different, I could tell he knew it was where we had met. 4 years later and we own that special place. Rightfully he is my mascot and through everything that has happened in our 4 years so far, I feel so amazing that dexter and I have that special place and special moment to look back at. And trust me he was in there today (when we first opened) like he was the boss. Kae-9 by Design llc grooming studio is not just a grooming studio, it holds a very special place in my heart. Whenever I see him on our window it instantly takes me back to when we first met. Everyone that comes into our salon instantly knows there is something different about it, we have a sense of love and warmth that floods the whole space and I truly believe that Dexter is the reason why.
