Oh, there’s nothing like a dog-friendly getaway! Well pawls, just last weekend I made a very big trip far and away from my much-loved, surf’s up Southern California. I went all the way across the country to the brrrr city of Columbus, Ohio!
Now, I love me some sun, so I normally wouldn’t leave my backyard paradise unless there were something real good in it for me. Pawls, if a conference bringing together a bazillion pet bloggers doesn’t do it for ya, then I don’t know what gets your tail wagging. This conference sure got my tail to do the wiggle waggle!
The humans call it BlogPaws, I call it doggie swag bag heaven! From treats to “accident” carpet cleaners, what dog wouldn’t love to come home with a big, green bag full of toys and treats?! I for one took my bag and stashed it in a strategic secret hiding place in my hotel room. No dog was going to steal my goodies.
Speaking of other dogs, not only were there tons of humans there that use those big human fingers to type for their pets, but the snouts behind the blogs themselves were in the house. Say woof, woof! It was pawsome to say the least, dog dudes. Every scent you followed led you right to an ear scratchin’ or a belly rub.
The BlogPaws love didn’t end there! Just a couple days ago I got to go to my very first BlogPawty! Did you know that there are such things as virtual bacon beers?! ::drooling:: So delicious! I met so many new pawls, a lot of whom went to BlogPaws and were so super cool that they got together to pawty and raise money for homeless animals! If you know anything about me, you know that makes my tail wag so fast you almost can’t see it!
So far this “Be the Change” movement has raised $1,686 for my pawls! Ah, my friends, just follow the BlogPaws to fabulous times and pawls …
