NEW YORK (AP) - Pet lovers are getting to meet some pet stars from social media this weekend at PetCon in New York City, a convention dedicated to all things linked to beloved animals.

While there are some cats and other creatures there, PetCon in Manhattan is mostly about dogs and their humans.

Elaine Marzorati was in line to see a Chihuahua and dachshund mix named Tuna Melts My Heart who’s become famous on Instagram.
