QUETTA: What would be the best way to cheer up residents of the troubled provincial capital? For the Pakistan Army the answer, it seems, is a pet show.
Part competition, part display, the pet show was held in Quetta on Tuesday, attended by many excited spectators, young and old alike.
Dogs, cats, goats, sheep, parrots and other animals strolled across open grounds under the hot summer sun to compete in the show.
Army dogs performed tricks along with their trainers, as commentary continued in the background.
To entertain the audience further, the army’s marching band also performed a musical number.
