Hey guys. Well, another BlogPaws conference has come and gone. This was the fifth one that the mom has attended, and she says that even though she wasn’t there for the entire conference, she still had a great time. That’s because she was able to spend time and catch up with her blogging friends…and make some new ones, too. Sure, there was stuff to learn, some terrific speakers to hear, brand representatives to meet, and lots of swag, but she said the best part about the BlogPaws conference is to be able to be with like-minded, animal loving people. She says it re-energized her…and cod knows we need a re-energized mom to help keep up our blog.
Not only did the mom get to see her human blogging friends, she also got to see many of the “paws” that are the inspiration for the blogs. Today, I wanna share pictures of some of them. You may even recognize a few!
The mom says BlogPaws wouldn’t be the same without kittens. And Miss Jeanne from Random Felines didn’t disappoint this year. She brought these three cuties with her…
Meet Dior, Armani and Gucci…collectively known as the “Designer Kittens.” They were quite entertaining and had all the humans squee’ing. Y’know…I was once that cute, too.
Dior was probably the shyest of the three, but after a day or two of being manhandled by all the humans, she basked in being the center of attention.
There were lots of other cats at BlogPaws…probably the most ever. Like this pretty girl. Do you recognize her?
Yep, that’s Sophie from Kitty Cat Chronicles. This was her second BlogPaws and this year she brought along her brothers Kylo Ren and Caster. Can you believe the mom didn’t get photos of them?? Sheesh. Sophie has cerebellar hypoplasia which makes her kinda wobble when she walks, but it didn’t stop her one bit from exploring everything and everywhere. This was one of the rare occasions she was in her stroller. Most of the time she was walking all over the place making lots of friends.
Samson was attending his second BlogPaws, too. He was just a kitten when he was in Phoenix last year. He’s all grown up now…and rocking that cowboy hat.
This is Bug. The mom met her for the first time this year. Bug’s human is veterinarian Ken Lambrecht who has taken Bug traveling all over the world. What a lucky cat!
BlogPaws wouldn’t be complete without the famous Coco, the Couture Cat. She was by far the best dressed at BlogPaws…out of both human and animal. The mom says the dress she wore to the Nose-to-Nose Awards dinner…pictured above…was spectacular! I just wish the mom would have gotten a better photo of it. Sheesh.
Some unconventional pets made the trip to BlogPaws, too…like Snotface the ferret. The mom first met him in Nashville and was happy to see him again this year.
Of course, there were lots of dogs at the conference. They well-outnumbered the cats.
This is Dot…a beautiful Great Dane. Wow…she’s got some loonnngggg legs!
Strike up the band! These guys look like they’re ready for a stroller parade.
This is my favorite kind of dog…the sleeping kind.
The little dogs were out in full force walking the red carpet at the Nose-to-Nose awards. Check out those fancy outfits they’re wearing. Waydaminit…what’s that in the middle there??
Hey! Someone forgot to tell that cat she’s not a dog!
The mom says there were more “paws” than ever this year at BlogPaws. But even so, I don’t think I would ever wanna go. I’d much rather stay home and not have to put up with all those barking dogs.
How ’bout you? Have you been to a BlogPaws conference? If not, would you wanna go?
Hey…make sure you stop by this Friday. We’ll be having our BlogPaws swag giveaway.
