Win tickets to Pet Expo in Orlando

NOTE: To enter the contest to win a pair of tickets to the Pet Expo, all you need to do is write me at with your name and email address, no later than 5 p.m., Saturday, July 25, 2009. A winner will be chosen at random and will be announced here Monday, July 27, in another blog entry.

The most unique dog, cat and exotic pet event in Central Florida - the annual Pampered Pet Expo brings together adoption (partnering with PetFinder), local AND national vendors and, most importantly, education in order to help "pet parents" nationwide care for that special member of their family. The Expo takes place Aug. 7-9 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

Pet Expo attendees can shop for pet food, toys, treats, supplies, housing, clothes, costumes, furniture, services and enjoy entertainment and education session.

Unfortunately, Convention center policies do not allow pets in the building. For more information, please check out Orlando Pampered Pet Expo.

For some, it's NOT all about the money

Anne Scholl-Mealey, D.V.M. of Orlando has been taking care of the pets of homeless people for 5 years. She does this in addition to serving the needs of other animals via her vet practice. SHE IS MY HERO. Go here to learn more about this woman. If you read above about the disappointing experience we recently had with our vet, who is now our former vet, you know Dr. Scholl-Mealey would get all our business if we lived in Orlando.

For those who do live in the Orlando area, here's the link to where Dr. Scholl-Mealey can be found, her own practice at Chickasaw Trail Animal Hospital.
