Do you love pets? Dogs, miniature horses, rodents and creepy crawly critters?
If yes, you’ll want to attend the Powell River Pet Expo.
There is so much to BARK about beginning with the Trick and Treat Dog Show hosted by Coast FM’s Bobby Fields and Mr. Ed. Every entry wins a prize! Kids and adults can enter their pooches in the costume class or best trick class.
You’ll want to visit Mother Nature’s Face Your Fears reptile tent. Snakes, spiders, lizards and other creepy crawly critters. There’s also Chicken Oops Bingo. You never know when or on what square a chicken will let go on! If you win, your prize will definitely help your garden as it is the gift that continues to give. Chicken manure!
Valley Building is sponsoring the Rodent Races and has built an amazing race track for these little critters. Ready, set, go! Watch our racing rodents and see who is the fastest.
Pet portrait artist Lowell Morris is raffling off a gift certificate. If you are the lucky winner, he will sketch a gorgeous portrait of the pet of your choice.
Professional dog trainer Milan Jackson of Dogworx Pet Ranch and her Wonder Dog Bump will demonstrate a variety of tricks. You won’t want to miss Bump jump, twist, and turn as he performs a whole slew of tricks. Twelve-year-old Olivia Tibbles will guide her Labrador Retriever Buddy over a course of jumps and obstacles.
There will also be some yummy cupcakes for sale with a puppy paw print on them!
There’s a raw food seminar, meet and greet with Frodo the miniature horse, toenail clippings for charity and a dog smart talk. Check out Battle of the Breeds at the City of Powell River’s new dog park beginning at 2 pm. You’ll see everything from a Newfoundland dog to an itsy bitsy teenie weenie miniature pooch no bigger than one of those rodents you’ll see on the racetrack.
