BlogPaws – The Road Trip and More

Now that I have rested up a bit from BlogPaws, and have gone through photos, I am ready to start blogging about the amazing people and pets I met, along with brands, bloggers, speakers, and workshops!

So, AmyJo (Enlightened Ferret blogger) and I took the scenic route to Salt Lake City, UT.  We made several stops along the way.  We hit Kansas and I was in awe of the miles and miles of Wind Energy.  I didn’t realize how huge the windmills were until we got right up to them.

Marcuz (the deaf and very cute Ferret) was interested in Pancake Pet Kiko, so when I would take her out to get a photo Marcuz would come over to check her out.

The traffic in Denver was crazy – very busy.  I got excited when I started to see the mountains!

We drove through the Rocky Mountains and it was an incredible drive. I was actually scared at times – I was afraid to look down as we drove around the mountains. It was like we could just go over at any moment. The locals were passing us quickly but of course they are used to driving there.

We finally got to UT!

As soon as we got to the hotel we knew we were in the right place!

I got to my room, which I was sharing with Jodi, (Kol’s Notes blog).  Luckily, she wasn’t in the room when I got there.  I tell ya – I needed a shower in a bad way AND a nap.  So, I jumped in the shower and got all nice and clean.  I was getting ready to take a nappers when Jodi came in.  I was SO happy to meet her – FINALLY!  She had plans and I had a few hours before I needed to be anywhere, so I grabbed some ZZZZZs.

So, after napping, I got downstairs to check myself in.  I peeked into the room where most of the brands were but they were still setting up.  So, I grabbed my swag bag and took it upstairs.

SWEET!  Who doesn’t love swag bags?  So, I got in touch with my friend Carrie from All Things Dog Blog and Kari from Houndgirl.  We walked down the street to grab a bite to eat and the we got back just in time to see Tillman, the skateboarding bulldog’s demo!

Tyson, another skateboarding bulldog and one of the stars, along with Tillman, of Animal Planet’s new series ‘Who Let The Dogs Out’, came out with Rosie (another star of the show) to burst a ton of balloons. After their little show he was checking out things from their tour bus.

I posted this a few days ago but I did get a picture of Pancake Pet Kiko and Tillman.

After watching Tillman, I walked around and found our friend Amanda from GREENIES!  I was excited to see them there again.  The girls love GREENIES!  Riley does very well on their JointCare product as it helps with her mobility.

  1. I’m so jealous you guys got to drive to BlogPaws! I wanted to do that from NJ with Toby. Although, I likely would have been totally freaked out going over the mountain, too!

    Jealous too! Thanks for posting photos! We couldn’t go because we had an important wedding – maybe next year! Looks like quite a road trip for you!

    We live in Mountains – definitely get used to driving over them…a bit trickier in the winter!

  3. what a comprehensive, interesting and FUN post! You guys are brave, I would have been terrified on those mountains!
