Get ready to get all of your Christmas shopping done if you are a pet lover: The Blair County Convention Center in Altoona, Pennsylvania, is going to the dogs (and er, cats and more) this Sunday, October 18th from noon until five. And Fidose of Reality along with Wigglebutt Warriors will be launching the debut of our dog lovers store in person!!!! And if you aren’t able to attend, don’t fret: The online dog lovers store launches on Monday, October 19th. Here’s the scoop on everything – and yes, this is a road-worthy trip!

Altoona, Pennsylvania is located in the central part of the state in Blair County. It is about 3 hours from Philadelphia, 4 hours from New York City, and a great place to visit if you live in New Jersey, Connecticut, or other sister states. The day will be filled with pet lover things like demonstrations, contests, exhibits, pet vendors, animal rescue groups, and much more. Plus if you are into meeting celebrity pets, then this expo is designed for you. On tap this year is the mascot and ins-paw-ration for Wigglebutt Warriors, Dexter Bryant!!!

Here is a quick Q & A overview of all the fun at the expo:

What Celebri-Pets Will Be There for Me To Meet?

There are countless photo opportunities for photos with pets. Dexter, Coco the Couture Cat,  Madd and Wyatt Hallmark Dogs, and there will be opportunities to meet “Denver The Guilty Dog” and have your photo taken with all these pets! Dexter will be waiting in his famous Wigglebutt Warriors cape! Angie Bailey will be in attendance autographing copies of the book, Texts with Mittens!

Plus meet the many breeds in attendance with the Altoona Kennel Association and the rescue groups in attendance.  You can even feed Charlie the Camel for a $1 (with part of the proceeds benefiting local rescue). Or, have your photo taken holding a baby wallaby (for a nominal fee – with proceeds to benefit local rescues)

What Kind of Items Will be In the Fidose of Reality Dog Lovers Store?

Apparel, jewelry, and accessories designed with the dog lover in mind! Plus a very special toy for ball-obsessed pooches! This is the type of ball that your dog is mesmerized by and sleeps with, see?
