Last Saturday, the Amazing Pet Expo was in my Windy City. We had a chance to go. It was a long drive and “Siri” misguided us. We finally got to the event after an hour drive.
I was Golden Excited while waiting in line …
It’s an indoor event and the admission for both people and dogs were free. The event required all dogs to have proof of vaccination and must have a proper fixed leash.
The first booth I visited was Jones Natural Chews. I got to meet Golden Ozzie, named after the White Sox former coach. He sure was checking me out. Oh! lots of good smells in Jones Chews booth. Lucky Ozzie he get to test and chew all Jones Treats.
The second booth I visited was our twitter friend @MyDogTalks. I got to meet one of the young creator of the app My Dog Talks. Yes, it is an app available at iTunes. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you saw a video embedded on my I Got Marge Simpson Head video, if you missed our post Click Here. I will have more about My Dog Talks in the coming weeks. We plans to chit-chat and have a doggy play date with their dog Roxy.
I got to meet the “celebrities” of the Amazing Pet Expo. One of them is Preston who was very busy campaigning for his Petties DogTime Best Blog nomination. The line to meet Shorty Rossi from Animal Planet’s “Pit Boss” was a long line but had a brief chance to see him closely on the side of his booth. Shorty’s “Pit” was not bothered with all the fuss in the booth, just sound asleep on the table.
Lastly, I had lots of Golden FUN in participating in a rally obedience and agility courses. I received many applause and praises from the trainers. Many could not believe that I am an 11 (s0on to be 12) year old dog. I also caused a commotion as everyone noticed me wearing purple PAWZ and I got my “TheFifthPaw” on my leash. Yes, many asked us about it and we were glad to provide helpful information.
As a young pup, I was used to going on shows thus I was Golden Good at the expo. Unfortunately, we witness not so nice incidents at the expo. Not all dogs enjoy going to dog events as it can be overwhelming. Also, it was stated on the site to have a fixed leash, we saw some have a retractable leash (maybe it was an accident that the leash was released, but it should have been reinforced).
Does you city/town have a pet expo/fair? Do you bring your dog(s)?
Lots of Golden L♥VE n Woofs
