Yesterday, Shane and I took BeBe to the Largest Golden Retriever Gathering in Singapore at the PetExpo! :D I was quite excited. I had previously purchased a ticket for her online (which allows 1 GR and 1 human), so we could just cut the queue and get our entrance quickly. But honestly, I thought the ticket was only for the GR participating in the gathering, I didnt know humans need tickets too.. so Shane didnt come into the exhibit. (the queue was soooooooo long, think by the time he got the ticket it was time to go home. haha.)
Anw, the Largest Golden Retriever Gathering in Singapore will go into the Singapore Book of Records!! :)
BeBe seems pretty small size there. hahaha.
so of course, I was in the exhibition and my hands are full from the bag (with all bebe's stuff, toy, water, water bowl etc..), and at the same time I was trying to snap some pictures of all the goldies I see there. haha. My family were like "omg.. must leash her! if not you will bring back the wrong BeBe!" but to me, they really all look different! and everyone will have their eye and leash on their dog anyway so there is no worry that she will go missing hahaha.
Heres a goldie queuing infront of me for the registration.
and another one at the back so camera ready. haha.
then I headed to the holding area......
LOL... theres just so much going on in here..... (I cant stop laughing everytime I see this picture, and I didnt even see this when I was there, I only saw it after I uploaded all the pictures.. HAHA..)
BeBe at the Pet Expo!
I was expecting bebe to become overly excited or nervous like the last time when we went to the Fun Time By The Beach, but surprisingly she was pretty calm this time, just chilling as and when possible. Quite a number of people commented that shes pretty calm too... hahaha. I suspect shes just lazy... as usual. hahahha.
Also, she doesnt seem quite interested in making new dog friends, no sniffing people's butts, or like get overly excited. shes just standing there when ppl sniff her, like super act cool you know.
Anw, each Goldie will get a position number so we know where to stand for the photo taking. haha.
BeBe was at position E14! quick buy toto.
Just chilling.. waiting for the headcount to start...
(Doing her usual 趴地狗 (pa-di gou - sprawled on the floor dog) style..)
Pretending to take a nap amidst all the commotion.. really bearzy?? haha.
On alert mode.
Getting ready to go to the Arena for the commencement of the headcount! (p.s. BeBe is not in the picture)
At our position at the Arena! While other dogs are curious and excited and sniffing around, guess what bearzy is doing? Nothing much, just chillin'................ lol. she looks pretty happy though.
Guess which one is BeBe?! (pretty obvious right? Hahhaa.)
The number of people taking pictures of all the goldies. haha.
At 4pm, GR ambassador and celebrity GR, Amber and her owners came on stage! Amber is really sooo obedient and cute and confident, and the kids are sooo cute. ahahha.. like when the emcee asked nana how much she loves Amber, she said "20 dollars". LOL...............I guess maybe 20 dollars is alot to her. :)
BeBe, and Amber and family at the back.
The other GRs with their owners.. so pretty these dogs. :) GOLDEN RETRIEVER FTW~~
Whats an event without a selfie with my baby?? (photobombed by a photographer's butt.)
So, anyway, the headcount for the Largest Golden Retriever Gathering is a grand total of 102 goldies officially on the Singapore book of records, and an unofficial total of 116 goldies present that day!!! :D CONGRATS EVERYONE!! BeBe you are in the book of records. :) (they will mail us the certificate soon.)
We didnt hang around the PetExpo much.. there were alot of stalls selling pet accessories, food, cakes for doggies. and they even have photobooths!! I wanted to get a free photo from the free photobooth but there was a queue and I was alone in the exhibition so just decided to give it a miss... headed out to meet Shane after that and went home.. haha. BeBe was exhausted as well..
All participating GRs get to get have a goodie bag each!! and its something BeBe will be very happy about. Just look at all the can-food in there. haha. She had a good time eating these this morning for breakfast!! :D
Also, I was just browsing through the photos in the Facebook page of the Golden Retriever Club in Singapore, and found this picture...
