The Long Island Pet Expo is going on this Friday through Sunday at the Brentwood campus of Suffolk Community College. I've been to this event in the past and it's always a lot of fun. The first time I went to the expo, many years ago, I saw a cat training show. I was pretty amazed at what these cats could be trained to do, especially since I couldn't get mine to look at me when I said their names!
The event isn't only for dog and cat owners, either. There is going to be a lot to see there for owners of rabbits, reptiles, birds and more. One time I went and there was a man who kept Madagascar hissing cockroaches for pets. He had them on bedazzled leashes, I KID YOU NOT. He wanted me to pet them and I couldn't bring myself to do it. I'm an animal lover, but sometimes you have to draw the line. Turns out my line is right before cockroaches on leashes.
There are vendors, shows, educational sessions and demonstrations going on all 3 days. I'm especially interested in learning about the pet CPR class that's being held, because I've been wanting to learn those skills, just in case I ever need them
(and I hope I don't)!
Leashed pets are welcome at the event, just not with retractable leashes.
If you buy your ticket online, you get $2 off the admission price.
You can find more information about the event here.
I'll be visiting on Saturday. If you see me there, please say hi!
I look like this and I'll probably have a camera swinging around my neck :)
