Edison goes to the dogs (and cats, pigs, birds . . . )

May 12, 2018 by  

The 2018 Super Pet Expo was held in Edison recently, and drew pets—and their people—from throughout the area, according to an article on NorthJersey.com.

Attendees were able to visit with other pet owners, enter their pets in costume contests, and see vendors who had merchandise and services to offer, some of which were unusual to say the least.

Among these was a company selling Brewbiscuits, which they advertised as “beer grain biscuits for dogs.” Nearby was a van for the company Doody Calls, complete with the slogan, “We Scoop Poop!” Doody Calls is a franchise, and the Middlesex County operation is owned by Lynne and Mark Midtgaard. Lynne notes that in many families today both parents work, and the children are involved in a number of activities, so they may not have time to pick up after their dogs as they would like. Doody Calls is there to help.

The pet costume show seems to have been the highlight of the weekend. Entries included 17 dogs, a 30lb Maine Coon cat named Beast who was dressed as a unicorn, and a Victoria, a rabbit, who was carried to the stage wearing blue fairy wings.

Organizers of events such as this one, which draws many people and features activities and vendors, can help attendees by working with a flyer printing company on a handout that includes a schedule, and a list of booths.
