Good times at the Great KC Pet Expo
Petgasm: When someone has an overly emotional response to animals that includes loud pitched squealing, the voice rising 10 octaves, and lack of attention to anything else.
A lot of petgasming (as defined by Urban Dictionary) occured at the Overland Park International Trade Center during last weekend’s Great KC Pet Expo.
For instance, I let out a shriek of excitement upon seeing one of my dream dogs:
But all the petgasming at the Pet Expo didn’t pertain directly to puppies (although there were plenty in attendance).
The Pet Expo featured all kinds of critters.
Personally, I would expand the meaning of petgasm to also include reactions to really awesome pet products.
Emily from Our Waldo Bungie and I dropped by the Expo on Sunday, and we did a lot of high-pitched squealing about the cool things we wanted to buy for our dogs.
Here’s a sampling of some of the locally- and regionally-made items the excited us most:
Some of the vendors at the Pet Expo were kind enough to send Emily and me home with products for our pets to review, so stay tuned to both of our blogs for fun product features in the near future.
In the meantime, if you have tried any of the items featured in this post, please feel free to share your thoughts about them in the comments.
