America's Family Pet Expo

Next weekend, April 20-22nd, one of the most fun activities in Orange County will be at the OC Fairgrounds - America's Family Pet Expo

In 2009, this is where my husband and I researched our ultimate ideal dog breed and agreed our next dog would be a Saint Bernard. (Done and done!) The chickadees were in animal heaven! One of the best parts were the animal shows - we all thought it was so entertaining.

Our ideal lap dog.
