Love the pets at a fantastic event
ALFIE the dog loves a good story – and you can meet him at this year’s LovePets Show.
He is one of the dogs from the Pets As Therapy charity who children will be able to read to at the show on Saturday, October 29 and Sunday, October 30.
The Read 2 Dogs programme helps pupils in schools, giving them the chance to read aloud without judgement and to gain confidence.
There will also be plenty of other activities at the show, which takes place at the indoor EXEC venue for the East of England Showground in Peterborough.
These will include toy making, face painting, a micro-chipping game with toy puppies and talks about rabbits and ferrets.
