It was with great enthusiasm that I hoped to post some “petacular” videos and photos of pets dressed up and ready for spring from Macy’s Petacular. In it’s 14th year, the show kicks off Spring in New York along with the spectacular flower and garden show the store hosts. While I can say it was a spectacle, the only thing spectacular about it was what a crazy scene it was. Hoards of people and lots of little dogs dressed up way too cutesy for my taste. So much so, I couldn’t (or wouldn’t) even choose a best of the lot since they all looked like variations of the same thing. Dogs, with tutus, dogs with flowers, dressed like flowers, yuk. The float/balloons and costumed humans were far more interesting.
The area was SO crowded, I didn’t even go into the store to check out the flower show. I’ll be back, though, since in my past experiences, the array of displays are dazzling and the lineup of freebies — from gardening seminars to flower arranging — NEVER disappoints. The flower show is in full bloom through April 10.
Brandy and Val would have been so bummed.
