KUALA LUMPUR: Bangsar Village went to the dogs s on Oct 4.

In conjunction with World Animal Day, the shopping centre held the Carnival Affairs show, which rolled out the welcome mat for man's best friend.About 200 dogs of all breeds and sizes, accompanied by their guardians, attended the event, which saw each canine proudly parade itself along a 1.5km route around the venue. The event also provided dog owners with tips and insights into caring for their pets, including education talks which ranged from dog grooming to using the right tools for collecting dogs' waste in public areas.

Other highlights included activities such as dog grooming demonstration and an art contest for children.
Organised by Furry Friends Farm (FFF) animal shelter, this year marked the events second anniversary, and proved a hit with both human and canine participants.FFF founder Sabrina Yeap said the event was organised to highlight the centuries-old-bond between humans and animals."It's also about learning the proper way of caring for animals and understanding that loving an animal can make one a better human being," she said.
