When Luke Kavanagh from Australia posted a picture of Tea, his Afghan Hound, he had no idea what an internet celebrity she would become. The picture got more than a million hits online with memes and modeling offers following.
We always thought that she was far too pretty to keep at home, he says…Even our weekend walks draw a crowd. She pretends she doesn’t need the attention, but she definitely loves it, just like any supermodel.
Tea had a successful career as a showdog, but now she is retired.
She is the spokesdog for Royal Canine, a premium dog food brand, and she has appeared in commercials for a dog perfume. The income is nice, but it isn’t enough to get Kavanagh to quit his day job.
