BlogPaws Nashville Part-3

This is my final set of photos from BlogPaws (I still have a video on the way). Check out yesterday’s post for the first set of pics, and Monday’s post for my initial recap of the conference.

You may have heard of a little candy company called MARS. I also just realized while editing this photo that the fruit may have been served in kitty litter pans!

When Bentley’s mom leaned over to set her dinner down, he leaped up and snatched her pizza off the table plate and all. I’ve never seen a basset hound move so fast in my life! I think this is him saying, “hey, I already slobbered on it might as well let me finish!”

I spent 20 minutes walking in circles with her the night before trying to get her to go , ended up drenched in sweat because of the aforementioned humidity and still she held out on her poop strike. When we got directions to the park and I let her loose she immediately did her business and started running and prancing like she had never felt better.

Well, this is one of them! Isn’t he adorable? From the streets of Russia all the way to Nashville and rolling in style. Quite the adventure for this pup!

BlogPaws NashvilleThere are so many things I loved about the BlogPaws conference but certainly one of the most important is the amount that the organizers gave back. This $2,000 check to local Happy Tales Humane is just one of many that were presented over the course of the conference. BlogPaws estimates they donated about $18,000 in cash alone. It makes me really proud to be part of this community and knowing that I was a small part of making that happen.
