Today I am trading a beautiful beach for Global Pet Expo. I am very relieved I am not in Toronto where they are having yet another snow storm and many friends are without power. Orlando is warm and sunny, like yesterday on the coast.

Palm Beach

I am looking forward to seeing the new Motorola line over lunch and meeting Brandon McMillan (from the CBS Show Lucky Dog) over drinks today.  I am hoping to also see other cool food, treats, wearables, toys, fitness devices and aids and other products. Will add more WOW moments as the day progresses.

The Motorola Scout 5000 smart collar for dogs- Presentation by Sandy Robins, pet lifestyle expert.

This smart collar uses onboard Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity to allow pet owners to use their smartphones to see a streaming 720p video view of what their dog sees. Other features include two-way audio communications, the ability to locate pets using GPS tracking, geo-fencing to establish boundaries and notify owners if they have been crossed, and even a bark alert to let owners know when their dog is barking.

PETMATE is sponsoring Brandon’s Q & A and donations are being made for each guest. Very cool. I admire what he does with rescue dogs. I wish I could get him to help little Kilo, my Rescue Pug. Can’t wait to meet him tonight. He looks so nice.


CBS Lucky Dog TV series: “Animal trainer Brandon McMillan’s second home is the neighbourhood animal shelter where he is determined to rescue hard-to-love, out-of control, untrained and unadoptable dogs. Then, back at Brandon’s training facility known as the Lucky Dog Ranch, he embarks on the seemingly impossible task of turning the frightened pooches into perfect pets. In the end, a lucky family will adopt an even luckier dog, making each episode an adoption story that warms the heart.”

Loving this Cats Of Thrones toilet set. Will have to order online and train Kilo.
