Global Pet Expo Glam

For those of us not fortunate enough to attend the Global Pet Expo in Orlando last week, we think this article in The New York Times does a great job of setting the scene and diving into some of the niftiest new pet products on display (among the 3,000 featured at the show).

The American Pet Products Association, who sponsors this massive event, says that last year alone, Americans spent 55.7 billion on their pets-and spending is only expected to increase. So with all that spending going on, why not introduce a few (thousand) new products...say, for example, hand-smocked dog dresses' rain coats with "detachable, awning-like hoods, and hundreds of toys and "enrichment products" for not only your dog, but maybe your gerbil, too.

It sounds like the Global Pet Expo was a raging success this year, and would love to hear if any of our readers managed to go. For those of us who didn't make it, enjoy the slides how that accompanies the article and let us know your favorite products!
