SAN DIEGO, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- This month, there is one specific reason why more than 1,200 Petco locations around the nation are each hustling and bustling with excitement - and it can be summed up in two words: Yorkshire Terrier. Petco™ stores nationwide are busy getting ready for a special event featuring the small but feisty breed commonly referred to as the Yorkie. Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr, actress Natalie Portman, comedian Joan Rivers and many more celebs are lucky enough to share homes with them. This event aims to celebrate all pet parents of the breed with the first-ever, national Yorkie Meet Up at Petco.
On Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 1 p.m., Petco stores nationwide will unite for the first ever National Breed Meet Up, and who better to be the first breed featured than the glamorous Yorkshire Terrier? With the breed's long, golden hair and confidence, Yorkies are no stranger to the spotlight. Who knows? With all the famous Yorkie pet parents, attending one of Petco's free Yorkie meet ups could result in a celebrity Yorkie sighting (and their parents might be worth a second glance too).
During this exclusive Petco event, sponsored by Royal Canin, attendees can expect to:
- Learn about caring for the physical, mental, social and emotional needs of Yorkshire Terriers, as well as grooming and nutritional requirements unique to the breed.
- Receive special offers and samples from Royal Canin*
- Meet fellow Yorkie pet parents in the community and spend time with like-minded individuals. This is the perfect event for pets to find friends too!
