POTTSVILLE and Murwillumbah are both holding pet shows this weekend.
Today Pottsville will host the Cabarita Beach Pottsville Beach Lions Club's Tweed Coast Pet Show, while the Murwillumbah Showgrounds will hold the Tweed River Agricultural Society's Pet Show tomorrow.
In Murwillumbah, all types of pets will be on show, including fish and reptiles, rodents and guinea pigs, dogs, cats, birds, rabbits and other unique pets.
Several competitions will run, including fancy dress, best- behaved pet, best trick and most unusual pet.
Cynthia Hanger, the society's secretary and her daughter Shanaya along with their staffy cross BJ are looking forward to the show.
"It is not just a dog and cat show, we are hoping for all types of pet to turn out," Mrs Hanger said.
BJ seemed eager to meet some other pets, however Shanaya does not think she is a candidate for best-behaved pet.
"We might dress her up in a Christmas outfit; she is not going to win best-behaved that is for sure," Shanaya remarked.
The Pottsville expo, for cats and dogs, will run from 9.30am-3.30pm, while the Murwillumbah event starts at 9.30am with judging at 10am.
