For the past three years, my husband and I have attended the annual BlogPaws conference. There are countless reasons why it is important for us to attend. Since we are joining Wordless Wednesday, I thought it would be best to narrow my list down to a mere
5 Things I Love About the BlogPaws™ Conference.
BlogPaws offers sessions on all aspects of blogging for new and veteran bloggers.
Yes, that is none other than the famous Dr. Marty Becker who spoke at a session. I was star-struck when I met him earlier in the hotel lobby, but when he mentioned my blog during the class, I was so excited!
You get to eat great food and network with fabulous friends and brands.
We have been to the BlogPaws conferences in Las Vegas, Nashville, and Phoenix. All of the locations have had terrific food. One of the best parts of our days is discussing blog ideas and our pets with other like-minded people and companies.
Did I mention swag? Since both of us are attendees, we score twice the swag! That makes Bentley & Pierre very happy.
We are like children at Christmas when it is time to dig into our BlogPaws swag bags. Each year brings a bevy of new treats, foods, and toys to enjoy and share. A big thank you to all of the participating brands.
Your virtual friends become real friends and they are AWESOME!
Here are some of the many friends that we connected with during the fun-filled three-day event. I would love to spend an extra week just visiting. They are from upper right clockwise, Leah, Bernard, Christina, Amanda, Denise G. & Shasta, me, Darlene, Dexter & Carol, me & Jean Dion.

BlogPaws is pet-friendly! It gives us a chance to take a road trip with the boys as we explore the beautiful U.S.A.
Our travels to BlogPaws took us through Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. We visited the lovely cities of Amarillo, Flagstaff, Sedona, and Phoenix along with stops at the Grand Canyon, the Petrified Forest, and Winslow. Bentley and Pierre loved traveling and we loved being able to have them join us.
