I took the boys to a dog and cat convention at the Javitz Center today. It was called "Meet the Breeds," billed as "the world's largest showcase of cats and dogs."
Sure enough, there were a whole bunch of booths set up, each devoted to a breed of dog or cat, and almost all containing a live specimen to be petted, or, in Ethan's case, engage in full-open-mouth kissing.
Our favorites were the English Cocker Spaniel, Bloodhound, and American Cocker Spaniel. We saw what Kahlua and Bailey might look like if someone actually groomed or even brushed them occasionally.
And of course there were little kids all over the place, plus Haagen-Daz, frozen lemonade, and popcorn. Yeah, we blew $50 or so, but we managed to avoid coming home with a Bloodhound or a toddler.
