To all those that know me, my fascination (yet another obsession) with animals has always left me with an inner urge to own a pet. Unfortunately, owning a pet is not that easy to do when you’re a family of two workaholics that slave away at jobs till 6 pm.
One of my favourite annual events in Dubai is the Pedigree & Whiskas Dubai Pet Show held at the 7evens. A full day under the sun on a beautiful green pitch surrounded by hundreds of furry creatures… I could NOT ask for anything better!! The pet show starts from as early as 8 AM with tons of competitions, parades and dress-ups. The only downer is that it’s a one day event, super bummer for me.
My only disappointment this year was the new rules & regulations which banned many dogs from attending the show. Although I don’t care too much for big dogs (I’m more into fluffy balls of cuteness) my husband was devastated, being a Rottweiler breeder back home. Breeds like Rottweilers, Dobermans, Shar Pei’s and various Bull Terriers were not allowed for safety reasons, which I believe could easily be solved with muzzles and more responsible owners.
To sum it all up, it was a beautiful sunny morning, blue skies, beautiful dogs and tons of ice-cream to cool us all off. Sad you missed it? Make sure you catch it next year, all details can be found on their official website here.
I leave you with pics! xx
