My wife and I never much like joining animal festivities with our four dogs. Those events are supposed to be fun and relaxing. But alas we never do because our ill-trained dogs respond to nature's call at the most inopportune times and places and you never know how other dogs, their owners and especially security guards might react. We usually end up more stressed out.

But we make an exemption for those events organised by Stop! Save HK's Cats and Dogs. They are fun, the owners are cool and the dogs are (usually) cute. We just hope our dogs can poo all over the place and no one complains. So open your wallet and buy a T-shirt for tomorrow's Woofstock for dogs, billed as Hong Kong's first groovy dog fair.

Stop! chairwoman Brooke Babington promised psychic activities with animal communicators - so you might know what your pets really think of you, pinatas full of dog bones, and dog biscuits for your pets to pig out on. Join them at the Pinewood Battery park from 12 to 4pm. Or first meet at The Peak and follow the signs - or everyone else with a pet.
