Representing the pet friendly hotel chain, Accent Inns, at this first annual Pet lovers show in Abbotsford, I was delighted to see how many people love animals! The show was very well attended; I think 13,000 or more came through the doors. There were some very interesting animals there to be seen, Woodchucks, Porcupine (which needed to be handled very carefully), Wallaby, reptiles, and a little petting zoo for kids of all ages.
The very unique Serval and Savannah cats were being shown. Starting at $1000 to upwards 12,000 for the rich and famous to own! They are absolutely stunning and reported to be very good companion pets but the big one that was there was NOT happy to be there. There was a lot of hissing and biting going on. Poor thing did not like the crowds. The owner assured us this was not the behavior at home, and was actually friendly and cuddly. She seemed to have all fingers intact, so I believed her.
The funniest thing I have ever seen was the rabbit show. Imagine little bunny rabbits doing an agility course just like the Super Dogs do! Run
you wascal wabbits! They are a lot smarter than we give them credit for. Cute, cute cute!
There were some wonderful rescue organizations there that were able to show case some of their dogs that needed homes. Thankfully a few of the dogs were adopted out to loving forever homes.
There were plenty of things to buy and sample for your pets, including snacks, toys and garments.
All in all, it was a great event and I look forward to next year!
