On 7th May my friend, Chloe and I popped on the train to London and headed to the ExCeL in London for the first National Pet Show of 2016.

The event is huge and full of everything you could imagine!
Every kind of pet from reptiles to horses, donkeys and fish and every dog breed you could imagine - but not enough pugs. Definitely not enough pugs.

Equipped with out complimentary Show Guide, we planned out day starting with Noel Fitzpatrick's (from Channel 4's The Supervet) presentation interview at the Eukanuba Theatre.

Noel and his dog Kiera and Noel's Foundation 'The Humanimal Trust'

Although Noel was late due to the London traffic the interview was opening, and he is as inspiring as you'd imagine. Talking about his patients, his new cancer specialist unit and his foundation 'The Humaninmal Trust' about bridging the gap between human and animal surgery techniques and prosthetics Chloe and I both left feeling like we'd met a true inspiration and a serious hero.

The show itself is full of everything an animal lover needs with information areas, shopping stands to buy everything from dog food to rabbit castles and everything in between.

We saw every animal and I held as many as I possible could, and I think I've fallen in love with snakes and millipedes - words I never thought I'd write together in a sentence.

As well as petting areas there are also many mini shows where you can watch everything from the 'Superdogs LIVE' finals to trainers and their pets, dancing dogs and competitions.

There is all sorts from the weird to the wonderful.
All kinds of dog breeds from Czechoslovakian Wolfdog's to the Chinese Crested, celebrity dogs from your favourite TV adverts and social media sensations.

Tips and tricks from the breed associations with help on the best breed for you, or caring for your hairy breed to meeting the hairless breeds.

Meet Betsy Boo 'the amazing frisbee dog' and her owner who showed off their unique trick at the IAMS stand!
Celeb dog Lulu the Pomeranian weights just 4lbs and you may notice her from We Buy and Car's Video.
Chloe and I has so much fun, there was so much to do and see.
