Super Pet Expo

Last Sunday, Tubby and Norbert went to the Super Pet Expo in Edison NJ.  We have gone every February for the last four years, ever since moving to Jersey City, and its always packed to the gills with people, pets, and great deals on products for pet lovers.

The crowds are a bit much for Bob and Dr. Zira who prefer a more sedate environment, but they where nothing to Norbert and Tubby who have braved Manhattan crowds, (Ping would have been fine too, but we decided two dogs would be easier to handle at the Expo then three). 

We saw lots of cute dogs (as well as birds, cats, and pigs!)

There were treats galore and lots of free samples.

Tons of people where selling home accessories for pet lovers.  Last year mom bought a pug sign for our front door from this vendor:

 Other stands had all sorts of toys and clothes.

 We had so much fun shopping.

 It was hard to decide what to buy, but we settled on a bag of Duck Strips from Plato Pets that is as big as Dr. Z!

Mom also got a shirt for Tubby with a T on it from NJ based Diva Dog Designs. They make such cute stuff and have a shop on Etsy!

For a toy mom and dad selected Kyjen Star Spinner puzzle toy.  

"Can I eat this mom?"

"Oh I get it there are treats inside!"

 Norbert and Bob solved the star puzzle quickly, though Bob was a bit handicapped by his lack of a nose.

Tubby did a respectable job and was clever enough to use his paw when his nose proved to short to properly turn the puzzle.

Ping and Dr. Zira where a bit baffled by the toy.  They seem to think all treats should be hand delivered.  Classic diva behavior.

All in all the Pet Expo was a big success! 


  1. Looks like you guys got a lot of awesome stuff, espeially the puzzle toy!

  2. Wow - that pet expo looked SUPER FUN!!!

  3. It seems like the expos near us don't let us take our dogs. Does that make sense?!

    We tagged you! Come on by and see what it's all about!

    This puzzle toy sounds a lot of fun. But maybe not for Ping and Dr. Zira..hahaha :-)
