PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Animals of all shapes and sizes will pack the David L. Lawrence Convention Center this weekend for the annual Pet Expo.

“This is going to be one of the largest expos Pittsburgh has ever seen, with nearly two full acres of pet-related activities, ” Pet Expo Manager Victor Kimmel said.

There will be more than 150 exhibits, including an exotic reptile display and the first ever Pet Olympics.

Plus, you’ll have a chance to ask the vet and check out vendors like Invisible Fence.

One of the big highlights this year will be dock dogs.

Dogs from all different breeds will be competing using a giant swimming pool.

“It’s a 40-foot dock with a 40-foot pool, so we’ll have the dogs run as fast as they can down the dock and into the pool for distance, ” Paul Leabhart from Three Rivers Dock Dogs said.

Leabhart is the president of Three Rivers Dock Dogs and said the contest is thrilling. He’s looking forward to seeing his 3-year-old chocolate lab, Mossy, compete.

“These dogs, when they are on the dock, they are running 30 miles per hour, flying for their toy object that they want so bad that toy and they’ll spring into the air as fast as they can. Doesn’t [matter] how far they go, they are just wanting to get that toy, ” Leabhart said.

People are welcome to bring their pets to the expo as well.

“A lady is bringing her macaw tonight. It’s a world famous macaw that she is going to be walking around with. You can bring cats, dogs, as long as they have their shots and they are at least six months of age, ” Kimmel said.

The Pet Expo runs until 9 p.m. Friday, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

The most adorable thing I've seen so far today.

I fostered a Staffy Bull named Irene. She ended up with a young family who had a 18 month old. A year later at Chicagoland Family Pet Expo, the family (with a new baby also) came specifically to our booth to show us pictures of Irene (now called Bridget) sleeping on the couch with the now 2-1/2 year old. It makes it all worth it to see them finally happy.

I need help interpreting my dream!!?

I was in giant eagle with some of my best friends and a new guy friend from track, James, We were petting a dog when the dog owner said their new dog, Foxy, would be over soon so we could pet her. Foxy was my old dog who was my best friend from preschool until we had to give her away when I was 2nd grade. I began to cry because i was thinking about Foxy and James began to comfort me and stroke my hair. Then my best guy friend gave him a look like "go get it man" (as in like "get some" if that doesn't make sense sorry). What does this mean?

Maybe it means that you should get a new dog? One that is like foxy and if possible you could track down where she went to and get one of her puppies?
