If you've ever felt guilty about leaving your pets at home, the Colorado Springs Pet Expo says, "Bring 'em!"

All pets are welcome to attend the expo, Friday through Sunday at the Colorado Springs Event Center, 3960 Palmer Park Blvd.

Go to cspetexpo.com to fill out a pet liability form ahead of time, or sign a waiver at the door.

The expo will feature more than 160 booths and activities, including pet demonstrations, contests, training seminars and adoptions.

One of the main events will be a demonstration by Eric Melvin and "Angelyne the Amazing DEAF Cattle Dog," known for inspirational and motivational talks about human-animal communication, advocating for people and animals with disabilities, and offering a deaf dog training program.

Colorado-based Melvin and Angelyne, an Australian cattle dog who was born deaf, have been performing since June 2007. Now 13, she has won 11 talent shows and made more than 500 presentations.

The expo also will feature a large performance area with entertainment such as the SuperSonic Dogs, who will show off Frisbee skills.

The first 100 people each day will receive a free Sky Sox baseball ticket. Attendees also may register to win a $50,000 makeover from Old World Roofing & Restoration.

Hours are 4-7 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Admission: $8 for adults; free for 16 and under.

Kids 16 and under get in free.
