Dogs, kittens, and sea lions, oh my!
As a dog lover, it was a treat to attend the OC Pet Expo in Orange County two years ago. I think my favorite exhibit was the diving dog exhibit. The dogs would climb the stairs, wander the diving board, some would turn around and others would run headlong into the water, chasing a toy. I got some of the best laughs that day watching those beloved furbabies experiencing pure joy as they played in the water. There were even a couple that didn’t want to get out!
My sons loved the dogs but they spent more of their time in the reptile hall. It was a big hall full of people excited to see the many types of reptiles, such as lizards, snakes, geckos and scorpions, amongst other types of animals. That day, we drove home with a lizard and a dwarf bearded dragon, but of whom are still happily alive and ensconced in my son’s rooms. (And that day started my younger son’s begging for more and more reptiles! As he also has a Labrador, who sleeps in his room, I had to put a stop to it at two.)
The OC Pet Expo is a great place to visit if you’re looking to buy or adopt animals, but it may be even better if you just want to show your kids animals that you don’t want to buy.
