It was a day of love and what better way to celebrate it than with our four-legged friends!

Leisure Valley in Sector 10, Chandigarh, is playing host to a two-day dog show that began on Saturday. Chandigarh Kennel Club, which has organised the show, reserved the first day for pugs and labradors.

"We usually do something different every year. This time, we decided to have a separate show for labradors and pugs as they are the preferred dog breeds with tricity residents,” said Piyush Rai, the event organiser.

But that didn't stop dog lovers with other breeds from landing up at the venue, some of them with their furry friends in tow.

Starting young

Dheeraj Ahlawat and Taruna, both officers in the Indian Air Force, had come with their infant daughter for the show.

“We've been attending these shows and were here last year too. Though the main show is slated for tomorrow (Sunday), we have brought our baby here to help her get acquainted with dogs. We hope she grows up to be an animal lover,” Dheeraj said. Saloni, a college student, said, "I'm a dog lover too and make it a visit such shows.”
