Who let the dogs (and cats) out?

Put more than 100 golden retrievers together, and both man and their best friends would have a ball of a time. That is exactly what happened at the Pet Expo, where 102 of these docile dogs came together and broke the Singapore Book of Records for the largest gathering of golden retrievers.

The dogs were also joined by Amber — a female golden retriever in Singapore which has its own blog. The blog, written in Amber’s name by her owner, Mrs Ainsley Chew, a housewife in her late 20s, is popular with pet lovers. Amber has 45,000 “likes” on its Facebook Page.

The Expo was also a “networking” event for the dogs, as many were seen goofing around with their newfound friends. Apart from dogs, the cats also had a large booth set up by the Cat Welfare Society, which was looking for people to adopt some of them.

Here are some pictures from the event.
