Festival Girl Verdict: 3.5/5
On a cloudy but still inviting Sunday morning, I decided to check out this year's Petfest which I missed out on last year.Walking through the gates of Holroyd Gardens, the sight of visitors embracing the spirit of the festival and bringing along their best friend. The only thing that seems to be missing from this day was Dr Harry. Indeed it was a day to walk with the animals, talk with the animals, Grunt and squeak and squawk with the animals... well you get the idea.
Festival Girl highlights:
Watching the Flyball tournaments and trying to remember whihc border collie was the one I was originally routing for? Oh yer, it was the one with the black spot on the eye, or was it the one with one white foot. Anyway, man can they move. What's even cuter is seeing the tiny puff balls trying to compete with the supersonic border collies and seeing the fluff on their tails whoosh as they collies speed by them. There's so much energy in the air, I think I need to take a seat.
Best Costumed Pets:
Look at those tiny shorts, I want to eat them
Is this a slurpee or a Maltese Terrier?
You can call me Princess Chihuhua
Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?
Woah - look at those ears
What a cutie, in a cross between John Wayne, Terminator and Beverly Hills Chihuahua
Cute stall called Gourmet Dog Biscuits and Treats. It was so cute couldnt resist buying a donut for my doggie. Be warned, as good as these look, they are PET FOOD ONLY and are all 100% perserviative free and colour free. So won't make your pet's tummy hurt.
Pizza for Dogs?
Bite Me! Genious work, comes with instructions
Lots of different varieties for even the fussiest pooch
Trust me - when I was looking at these, I had to keep telling myself PET FOOD ONLY
This event really highlight the importance and responsibilities of having pets and how much our pets mean to people.
Gold coin donataion makes this really economical day out for the family and supports a great cause.
Watching the little Jack Russell Terriers chase the fussy ferret thing was so cute. I tried to take some snaps, but they were to quick. Note to self, need to upgrade camera for fast action shots involving sprinting Jack Russell Terriers.
I couldn't have timed this picture better even if I wanted to
Randomly walking around and seeing a walking Petstore come to life and suddenly I feel like Angelina Jolie with her kids wanting to adopt a breed from every continent.
Love is in the air
Aww everybody loves pugs
I don't think this image does this GIANT dog justice. It was amazing to see in the flesh.
Random doogie poops on the grass that owners forgot to pick up. Eww. Its called Poop and scoop people.
Dammit I missed it?!
If you'd like to visit this event, it is happening again Next year around the same time.
