Did you visit the Orange County Pet Expo 2008? If not, then you must go see the 2009 OC Pet Expo. If you were there last year then you already know how much fun this event can be for animal lovers and I expect to see you there.
For those of you who have never been to the Orange County Pet Expo here’s a little bit of what you can expect:
Orange County Pet Expo 2009
Stetson and I were there last year (Stetson can’t attend this year because he’s no longer a Guide Dog Puppy In Training) and some of our favorite events were:
- Splash Dogs
- Parade of Dog Breeds – almost every dog breed you could think of was represented at the Pet Expo
- Alpacas, Pigs, Lizards, Snakes, Cats, Birds, and many other animals were all in attendance.
- Land dog sledding.
- Police Dog Demonstrations
- Of course Guide Dogs of America were there, we also saw Canine Companions for Independence, and Guide Dogs of the Desert at the Pet Expo
- Petting Zoo’s
- Pet Products
- And of course all of the great rescues at the adoption tents.
