Gallery: 2012 Taipei Pet Show, where it's better to be dog than human
Furry friends get even more attention than usual at this festival of pet pampering in Taiwan
It was the annual Taipei Pet Show on July 13-16 where hundred of dogs, cats and other less conventional pets led their humans around the Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall.
In between the pet fashion show, the pet "Olympics" and the pet talent contest, pet lovers shopped for food and accessories amongst the 600 booths.
Many coveted the NTD 70,000 (about US$2,300) bejeweled dog leash encrusted with Swarovski Crystal, sapphires and diamonds, while others checked out the NTD 598,000 (about $20,000) milk bath treadmill. It's a glass case that allows the pet to exercise while soaking in milky bath water.
Pet bridal wear and pet nail art were also a big hit.
Last year, more than 150,000 people visited the four-day show, many bringing along their furry beloveds.
