Ernie-closeup-smallHey everybuddy.  Ernie here.  Well, another BlogPaws conference is in the books.  The mom had great time this year.  Sure, there was stuff to learn, some terrific speakers to hear, brand representatives to meet, and lots and lots of swag, but she said the best part about BlogPaws was being with her blogging “peeps”…like-minded, animal-loving people.  These are people that she’s happy and proud to call her friends.  And not only did she get to hang out with her blogging friends, she got to see and meet lots of the “paws” that are the inspiration for the blogs.

Today we’re sharing photo memories from this year’s BlogPaws…including some of the “peeps” and “paws” that made this year’s BlogPaws such a wonderful experience for the mom.

Cat treats at the front desk #BlogPaws

When the mom checked into the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass Resort where the BlogPaws conference was held, the first thing she saw was these kitty treats at the front desk.  There were also dog treats.  The mom was impressed at how accommodating the hotel was for all the dogs and kitties that attended.

The view from hotel room #BlogPaws

This was the mom’s view from her hotel room.  Pretty, wasn’t it?  Her only complaint?  That it was too hot…115 degrees…and there wasn’t enough time to really enjoy everything the hotel offered.

And now for the “peeps”….

Cat Bloggers #BlogPaws

Here’s the mom with two of her favorite blogging friends…Mom Paula from Sweet Purrfections and Lisa from A Tonk’s Tail.

More Cat Bloggers #BlogPaws

And more Cat Bloggers #BlogPaws

More fabulous cat bloggers and friends….the top photo…Janet from The Cat on My Head, Dawn from Lola the Rescued Cat, Emily from Kitty Cat Chronicles, and Ava from Christy Paws…the bottom photo…Christine from RiverFront Cats, Mom Paula, Deb from The Chronicles of Zee and Zoey, and Linda from Savannah’s Pawtracks.

Didn’t everyone look like they’re having fun?  That’s because they were!

CWA group shot #BlogPaws

The Cat Writers’ Association…of which the mom is a member…joined with BlogPaws this year and held its annual meeting and awards banquet at the same time.  Here are some of the very talented members of the CWA.

The mom would like to thank Mom Paula for allowing her to use a few of Mom Paula’s photos since many of the mom’s photos didn’t come out well.  Thank cod she attended the photography session again this year…though it probably won’t help her photo-taking skills.

And now for some of the “paws” that were in attendance.  You may even recognize a few!

Coco and Dexter #BlogPaws

On the left is the fabulous Coco from Coco the Couture Cat who was attending her 7th BlogPaws.  And once again, she was the best dressed at the conference…out of both human and animal.  On the right is the Wigglebutt himself…Dexter from Fidose of Reality.

Summer and Christy #BlogPaws

We’re sure you recognize these two…on the left, Summer from SparkleCat featuring Summer…and on the right, Christy from Christy Paws.  The mom has met Summer before but this was her first time meeting Christy.  The mom said both of them did really well despite all the dogs around.

Sugar and Kona #BlogPaws

Speaking of dogs, the mom got to meet the famous Sugar the Golden Retriever from Golden Woofs.  The mom says Sugar is as sweet as her name.  Kona, from K9 CarryAll sat next to the mom in one of the sessions she attended.  The mom didn’t learn much in that session because she was paying too much attention to Kona!

Kittens #BlogPaws

There were kittens playing.  And kittens riding with dogs in strollers…though we think this kitten was looking to make its getaway…can’t say we blame him.

Fashionista dogs #BlogPaws

There were other dogs in attendance…like these two fashionistas.

The mom said there were more “paws” than ever at this BlogPaws.  And not just dogs and cats…there were ferrets and even a rat!

Sunset #BlogPaws

And as the sun set slowly in the west…the mom said farewell to BlogPaws 2016.  She’s already looking forward to next year!

Make sure you stop by tomorrow.  We’ll be having our BlogPaws swag giveaway!

  1. My Momma drifted when they brought the kittens in for the demo at the end of the photography session. She got to snuggle two of them and that gave her the cuddle energy to make it home to me. Unfortunately, she also tuned out the demo, but her cuddle tank was on empty and she was in danger of crashing … so you know, good and bad. My Momma was so excited to meet yours and she and I enjoyed the little presents you gave us (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the sparkle ball … a cat have never have too much sparkle). Thank you to your Mom for making mine feel welcome – I know it meant a lot to my Momma and when my Momma’s happy, I’m happy (okay, there are a few exceptions but they aren’t relevant here). ~Bear Cat
