Have a Pet

Your pets are your kids. You dress them. You feed them gourmet grub. You cuddle them at night. You neglect your significant other for doggy quality time. So it’s pretty important that you stay abreast of all things pet. After all, you could be missing out on the latest and greatest kitty toys, canine fashion trends, or training tricks, and man’s best friend wouldn’t appreciate that. Hit up the Miami Pet Expo this Saturday to get more than your fair share of animal education. The expo will include an appearance by Shorty Rossi and his pit bull, Hercules; stars of Animal Planet’s Pit Boss; plus tons of adoptable doggies and kitties, agility demos, giveaways, a talent contest, and — yes — a costume contest. Break out the tutus. Pet owners can also get low-cost microchips for their pups so they can keep close track of their four-legged babies. Did we mention Fido and Fluffy can come along? It’s an outing for the whole family, furry and otherwise.
