PET EXPO, HERE WE COME...
Hey: keep reading, because there's a chance to win 2 free passes to the Expo below!
As many of you know, I have a new Aussie shepherd puppy. (He was briefly named Fawkes, but it’s been switched to Corben; he seemed to refuse every other name.) Corben is smart. The kind of smart where I keep expecting to come downstairs on Saturday morning and find him sitting with a cup of coffee, doing the New York Times crossword puzzle. At three months old, he’s consistently outwitting me. It’s terrifying.
He’s also—bar none—the most adorable creature on the face of the planet.
So of course, as owner of a new pet, I want to make sure he’s got the best treats, food, training, and toys. How lucky for us that the OttawaPet Expo is coming up this month! (You can also check them out on Facebook and Twitter.)
We attended the Pet Expo last year and were really impressed with the cool things to see. There’s a fabulous pool set up for the waterdogs to show off their water tricks, and this year Natalie Duchesne of Mini-Cochon will be showing off the training of pot belly pigs, as well. Exotic pets are also on the agenda!
Visit the vendors’ tables to get advice on training and feeding, and take home some samples for your fur-baby to try.
And of course, the event is pet-friendly, so you’ll see Corben there with his five Italian Greyhound extended siblings. If you see us, do come say hi! Corben loves to meet new people and by that time, he may even know how to greet you in fluent English.
