Learning and Head Tilting

Today was a whirlwind of BlogPaws classes in which I met lots of people and learned a LOT. There was a very moving speech this morning by Mike Arms that had the entire room in tears. (You can watch it here.)

Mike Arms speaking (note the cardboard doggie cutout!)
It was also fun to see that those who couldn't bring their actual dog, cat, or ferret brought photos or cardboard cutouts of their pets! See the photo above!

After the conference, I had a bit of time so I got on video chat with Jon who had gotten Ellie back from my sister. So I got to video chat with her as well and it was so hilarious-- she recognized my voice but was quite confused about the whole process because she kept tilting her head from side to side. Loved it!

Then I went out to dinner with Angie (@catladyland) and Janiss (mom of @sparklecat). It's a warm night so we ate outside and got to see the town and people-watch. After, we got gelato which was amazing! It's been a great day and I'm sort of sad that it all ends tomorrow!

The city
So many choices, and this was only half of the display!


  1. I know....I can't believe today is the last day. I agree -- the talk from Mike was incredible. I feel very motivated!

  2. Passing through from the blog hop. Pleased to meet you!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog... following you back! I'm enjoying reading about your BlogPaws adventure. :)
