Nobody move... This golden retriever stays completely still while it's given a trim at a pet carnival held in Yishun yesterday to promote responsible pet ownership. The Pets Fiesta included contests for the most obedient dog and the most beautiful cat, dog fashion shows and educational talks. Held at Nee Soon East Community Club, the event was organised by Nee Soon GRC and animal welfare group Hope For Animals. More than 40 vendors and partners pledged 20 per cent of their sales proceeds to 14 animal shelters, to help raise awareness for their cause.
