ChiChie Tascoe
www.chichiesgroomingspa.com - In Washington, DC, most everyone who is someone, including the President (owner of Portuguese water dog Bo Diddley Obama) entrusts his or her canine pet's coiffure only to ChiChie's Grooming Spa. ChiChie and her daughter, business partner, and fellow expert groomer Aleta Elsayed are not only the premier dog groomers in the Nation's Capital but also old and valued friends of the author (see ChiChie's photo and quote on the title page for Section 5: Talk to the Animals).  
Karen Cataliato 
www.angelfire.com/zine2/shihtzuforum - Karen established the Shih Tzu Forum blog in 2001. How this Arizona fancier transformed her talented Shih Tzu puppy, Beau, into her hearing assistance dog, a Canine Good Citizen, and a decorated therapy dog is recounted in Chapter 12: Karen & Beau.
