At the Chanel haute couture show in Paris this morning, there was one unsung hero who had nothing to do with the beautiful clothing, the garden party set, nor the model cast. It was Cara Delevingne's dog handler, who had but one job, and did it with aplomb: Handle Cara Delevingne's dog.

When she arrived at her seat in the front row, Cara Delevingne had her puppy, Leo, with her. All was well:

That is, until Leo spotted some fun-looking grass on the set, and according to WWD, became so excitable that he delayed the start of the show.

Enter: Cara Delevingne's anonymous dog handler, who brought Leo safely backstage and away from any grassy temptations.

After the show, he reunited Cara and Leo, but remained dutifully on-hand, should anything be required of him:

He's always there, watching, taking his important job seriously. Very seriously.

Even when you're not sure if he's still there.

There's only one thing left to do now: Cara Delevingne's dog handler must compete in a menacing stare-off with Jennifer Lawrence's body guard.
