The Wild Things Are Here

Your best bud Barkley has discriminating taste when it comes to television. Flick on VH1, and your beloved pup turns away with a derisive sniff. Switch to HBO, and he will not even wag his tail. Animal Planet is the channel your doggy adores, and at today’s Animal Planet Expo, all of his favorite programs will come to life. Bring the entire family to Bicentennial Park for a free weekend-long event. Mo Rocca hosts his popular WHOA! Sunday interactive trivia game on Saturday, and today the action shifts to the main stage with a series of live animal shows. “We’re doing a dog Frisbee show, which is one of the most fantastic things. It draws huge crowds of spectators … it’s amazing,” says Candace Mowery, account director for Comcast. The cable provider is also donating $1000 to the Humane Society of Greater Miami. Interact with exotic critters like alligators, wallabies, armadillos, kinkajous, and lemurs, and enter cool contests today from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Visit
