    Ok so this is going to be about 6 posts worth of pics, so be patient! :) Also, they unfortunately came out blurry because my camera has a tiny little lens that doesn't do well in the low light of the indoors (but I <3 it anyway).

    The Pet Expo was fun.

    There were bored ponies giving pony rides.

    And the bully breeds always come out in full force.

    Dogtopia's booth had someone in a big dog suit. Kids liked him.

    Cricket made friends with some dogs.

    And she made friends with people!

    This is Lolo, a FOHA dog! She was at the shelter for a while and did NOT do well there, I was so happy when she went to foster. She is doing much better.

    I love this pic. This dog really wanted those treats!

    Cute paps in a stroller!

    Grabbed a pic of this dog because I thought he looked a lot like Cricket, although not really "Mexidog"-like.
    [​IMG]

    Whale-eye pibble looking a bit happier.
    [​IMG]

    I walked up to these people and asked if their big dog was a Presa since his head looked very Presa to me, and they said "he's a Brazilian Mastiff!" and I was like "oh, he's a Fila Brasileiro?" and they were like "um, yeah that!" I really don't think he looks like a Fila, but ok. They said he's very friendly in public but is very protective of his home territory.

    This guy was just chillin' and looking cute, so I approached him closer to get his pic and he lifted his head, his eyes grew hard and he clearly sent signals telling me not to approach him any closer. When I was resizing this pic I noticed the "DO NOT PET" sign on his leash. I don't always notice that stuff right away in person, I let the dog tell me if he wants to be petted or not.
    [​IMG]

    The bichon in the forground actually lunged halfway out of his stroller right at Cricket's face. Cricket's reaction was pretty much "wtf wrong with you, little fluffy thing??"
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cricket met a sheltie. Sheltie sez "Hai, please exit my personal space, kthxbai."
    [​IMG]

    This guy was laying there like "Hai, take my picture." So I did.

    Its Skittles!

    What great photos! I wish we had expo's here. So many beautiful pups!

    I really love that dog laying down in the blue harness. It looks photoshoped almost, he looks like a Rottie head on a Pointer body!

    The Bull Terrier Rescue had a green bull terrier at their booth.

    It's not easy being green.

    These six pictures are linked instead of posted in the tags because they contain snakes and reptiles. The first two are of a big lizard called a Tegu who was just chillin like "'S'up? I'm a Tegu." There are also pics of Skittles with a pretty boa.

    Gah!!!!! I was so in love with that Suriname Red Tail Boa. I can't wait to see her at the upcoming reptile expo. She is the perfect size right now but is going to get quite a bit bigger. Want want want... She has the perfect pink face.

    I agree with you on the Fila, Sweet. I'm really not sure what he looks like. I couldn't tell really well from the shots you were able to get, but he surely doesn't appear to even have the Fila butt.

    I want to go! It looks like you guys had a great time - did you do any shopping?

    Also, holy fat Cavalier in a stroller. Perhaps it needs to walk instead.
     
  17. It looks like you guys had so much fun!!! I'm dying to go to one... I'm hoping Las Cruces has one soon... It would be too much to hope that El Paso would do anything as cool as that. LOL

    I didn't do much shopping because my husband told me I couldn't spend any money. I did however spend a whole $5 lol. I got two car magnets. One is shaped like a give and says I love my border collie. The other is shaped like a paw and says Bitch on Board.

    Lilvati did a little shopping though. She got an awesome new lead
