The canine as an Eagles fan: who knew?
POTTSTOWN PA – Memorial Park became a pet lover’s haven again Saturday (Sept. 15, 2018) during the eighth annual Pottstown Pet Fair, held in the wide open spaces of the West King Street grounds and dedicated to the memory of its founder and chief shepherd, borough resident Bill Sharon. Sharon died only a month ago, still actively planning the big event that was attended by large crowds of humans and animals alike.
Plenty of vendors and visitors attested the event attracted the greatest number of people in its history to date, on a day during which the sun shone as warmly as Sharon’s wide grin. They filled the walkways () along which vendors offered a variety of pet-centric wares
Some came fashionably attired for the occasion
Some visitors chose to get up-close and personal with exotic animals …
… while others preferred to keep their distance
Parents captured great portraits and plenty of memories
This pair didn’t need to prowl for compliments; they received plenty
Not all pets at the fair were dogs and cats. The finely feathered were welcome too
… as were those with a snout instead of a nose
At the fair, even people were inclined to dress as pets
There were smiles from the staff of CapNAPS of Pottstown, an organization for which pet fair founder Bill Sharon was a tireless worker
Not to be outdone, the pet lovers of Malvern’s The Greyhound Cafe offered treats of their own to pet owners, primarily in the form of tasty and tempting vegan dishes
