The Doggie Expo

Last week I went to the Doggie Expo in Halifax, a one-day fund-raiser in support of the Nova Scotia Greyhound Rescue Group.  The wonderful thing was the measly $2 entrance fee included your dog.  What a deal !

Exhibitors were selling doggie hats, scarves, collars, leashes, toys, food and other paraphenalia.  Dog rescue groups, therapy dogs and dog trainers were also there to answer your questions.

Interestingly it wasn't the booths that garnered the most attention -- it was the other doggie visitors.  It was so much fun to wander around chatting with dogs owners, hearing about their dogs and enjoying the doggie interactions.

Rare Chinese Crested dogs. 

It was a good opportunity for Buffy to experience a new situation.   Kait had brought her dog Sooki and the two dogs reactions to the crowded exhibit hall were quite different.  While Sooki wagged her way through the throngs eagerly greeting two-leggers and four-leggers alike, Buffy found it all a bit overwhelming.

It was the most fun I'd had for $2 in a very long time.

One of us was very  tired when we got home.
