Yay! I am so super excited about the America's Family Pet Expo coming to town not only because its super fun and exciting, but this year the theme is a Salute to Hollywood pets!
“Salute to Hollywood Pets” – Expo guests can meet the four-legged and feathered stars and learn about the roles pets play in television and movies. See Angel and Rusco who star as Chloe and Papi from Disney’s “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” franchise, Stella from “Modern Family”, Uggie from the Academy-Award winning film, “The Artist,” Yakult from ABC’s “Surburgatory,” Charlie the cat from Disney Channel’s “A.N.T. Farm”, Owen the cockatiel from Disney Channel’s “Austin & Ally”, and Suzie Q who portrays Jim on CBS’ “Mike & Molly,” plus others!
How neat is that? And you can see Olympic Gold Medalist, Best Selling Author and Dancing with the stars champion Kristi Yamaguchi Saturday April 21, 2012 from 1:30 til 3pm for her book signing and meet and greet. The book signing is for her book "It's a Big World, Little Pig" which is a sequel to her children's book "Dream Big Little Pig" which spent 7 weeks on the NY times Best Sellers list in 2011. Kristi will be speaking of her career followed by an autograph signing and photos with Pet Expo Guests!
