It's Summer here in Seoul and as much as I adore Ferdi's fluffy hair which often looks a little like he's over done it with the crimper, it really doesn't suit these hot humid days.

It's just a side benefit that he looks so hilariously cute that I get weeks and weeks of entertainment, quietly chuckling to myself whenever I see him. Oh, and the puffy lions tail? That's the groomer being artistic - I'm not so cruel as to actually ask for that...(am I paranoid or is he rolling his eyes at me a little in that second photo?).
