Saturday October 30th, 2010 was the big day. It was the day of the St. Louis Pet Expo. This was our first pet expo ever.
It was hard deciding what dress to wear.
Here is a pic from the main room. Thanks to the St. Louis Pet Expo staff for allowing me to snag from their FB page.
Now in a previous post we showed you and anti-Prop B poster we saw now we got the real story behind it.
Prop B is legislation that regulates breeders and makes life for the dogs in breeding kennels better. Some of the big points are:
-Fresh clean (free of debris, algae) water supply
-Adequate rest between breedings (A female can't be bread more than 2 times in an 18 month span)
-Adequate living quarters with no wire bottom cages. (allows for inside and outside runs with room to walk, turn, lay down, and stretch his/her legs without touching the walls of the enclosure)
This all may seem like basic dog ownership stuff but ya what most places will have a lot of cleaning up and changes to make and we hope this Prop B will be enforced and be a positive thing in breeding dogs lives in Missouri (known as the puppy mill capital of the US).
Can you believe there are personal pet nannies. I thought we were the only ones. Thats the benefit of living in a big city tons of great services. We even saw a poop scoop service. Hmm...
The groomers were giving dog dying demos. This poor girl looks like she fell right out of a pumpkin. BOL
This one didn't look so happy...Her cage has a sign that says she is a biter...I would bite too if someone dyed me pink and blue!
Usually we are the only pups with strollers...well not this time. We saw probably 10-12 dog strollers.
When momma and I saw this one we looked at each other and giggled....This is exactly what we had been looking for. Momma calls it a bucket style stoller.
We stopped the owner and asked where she got it and she said ebay...So as soon as we got home we found them and oh boy mine should be here any day now. YEA!!!
Since this is a human convention center and to avoid getting pet stains on their fancy carpets they put plastic down. BOL It made Bobo kinda hop/walk. Thank dog for strollers or he would have gone crazy. See he doesn't like plastic he is furry scared of it.
He even had his nails painted. Wouldn't the original Mango look nice with his nails painted...Oh say
In our opinion the Expo rocked!!! We will share the speaker and talent show with you Friday. Then on Saturday the BIG costume contest.
Wags and Licks,
Mollie JO & Bobo
