    Aww darn, I would have loved to have gone to this, but only just read this now!

    However, why is it called “Feria de Mascotas” when the programme appears to only revolve around dogs? Do you know if there are other animals like cats, birds, rabbits, hamsters etc. represented too?

    Either way, I am going to watch out for this if there is one this year. :)

    Hi Barbarella.
    Yes – all the images we saw afterwards looked like dogs were the main focus. But it may be worth contacting them when (if) it is announced for the end of this year.
    If you do go – enjoy!
