Hawaii Pet Expo 2011

Every year I say I am going to go to this event but never quite seem to make it there.  This year I made it and it’s pretty darn amazing.  This is definitely something you should put on your calendars for next year!

Tails of Aloha banner sums up the whole event

No, “Tails of Aloha” is not the banner for the event but that name certainly sums things up nicely.  In reality, Tails of Aloha is the organization that cares for animals that need homes.  Visit their sight and check it out!

People and dogs everywhere!

People were walking around socializing with each other while the dogs were doing their own socializing.  You could tell that these animals had been socialized before — they must go to doggy parks a lot.  They were all so well behaved and people-friendly.  It was fun to watch this all taking place indoors at Blaisdell Center.

Birds are definitely a pet attraction!

The birds are always beautiful to watch and observe but they can also be life-long friends for some lucky people.

Felines have the personality to match!

The cats were here as well.  There were fish too!  Someone actually had koi there!

Persians are fun and fabulous felines!

These baby Persians, my feline breed of choice, were the cutest ever!

This very large Dalmatian was about hip-high if you stood next to him.

Dalmatians come in different breeds!

While there were not 101 Dalmatians at this year’s Expo, I am not altogether sure which one of these Dalmatians was the largest!

Pet Blessing anyone?  For more information on this event you can either visit www.e-shrine.org or call 841-4755.

Pet Blessing Festival takes place on June 5, 2011.

This was definitely an event I would like to attend again.  It was very crowded and there was so much to see.  There were animals and pet foods and animal care products and… just a lot of stuff!  An event for the whole family to enjoy.

    As a pet owner and animal lover, I loved reading this post and seeing the photos. The dalmatian standing at the sink made me do a double take!

    Wasn’t that a crack up, HVG? I still think the one walking on all fours was bigger! 🙂
