Puppy love

Weekend Herald - - News -

You might want to go pre­pared for some beg­ging if you take the kids to the Auck­land Pet and An­i­mal Expo. From tur­tles to ponies, they’re sure to want to take a new furry or slimy friend home. But it’s the last week­end of the school hol­i­days so pat­ting a cute puppy might be what the doc­tor or­dered as they pre­pare for an­other busy term.

You’ve al­most made it through the hol­i­days and if your chil­dren are still alive, you’re do­ing great. There’s a chance this fi­nal week­end will have them bounc­ing off the walls and lean­ing on your last nerve so why not take them out for a bit of pet ther­apy at the Auck­land Pet and An­i­mal Expo. There will be all kinds of pets there in­clud­ing ponies and al­pacas, and il­lu­sion­ist An­dre Ve­gas will be do­ing his an­i­mal magic show twice daily at 11am and 2pm. If you have pets of your own you can pick up all kinds of prod­ucts and ser­vices there, if you don’t, you may be leav­ing with a child who will beg you for one un­til you even­tu­ally give in or die. To­day and to­mor­row, 10am-5pm, ASB Show­grounds, Green­lane. Tick­ets $5 chil­dren, $11 se­niors, $14 adult, $35 fam­ily pass.
