Kristin from Dogs Rock and I had a great time at BlogPaws even though Hurricane Irene was being a big pain so we had to come home a day early. Here are some photos from BlogPaws. The BlogPaws team did an amazing job putting this awesome event together.

Lot's of Pet Bloggers at BlogPaws 2011

There was up to 65 dogs with their owners at BlogPaws!

I fell in love with this little Pug at the P.L.A.Y. dog bed cute!

What a little muffin!

Love, love, loved the P.L.A.Y. doggy beds. Their designs totally ROCK!

All my favorite dog magazines where at BlogPaws. Some I had not purchased before like Life + Dog 

The Sheraton at Tyson's Corner in Vienna VA was very nice but Kristin and I were lost half the time because the hotel was like a maze!

This photo was taken at breakfast on Friday and when I walked by this table the young lady had a real guinea pig and a stuffed guinea pig for her real guinea pig!

Toki Poki Trading Cards booth at BlogPaws

This is my friend Kristin Guffey from Dogs Rock at the Toki Poki booth. This was a GREAT flat pet display!

 This is Bev from My Flat Pet Blog and Kristin and I took her flat pet workshop and made flat pets of our dogs.

 This is a cut out of Bev's dog Tyler. He is a Celebrity Flat Pet!

We met so many fun folks in the flat pet workshop.  There were flat dogs, cats, bunnies and even a guinea pig made in our flat pet workshop. Everyone had a great time!

I was lucky enough to get two flat pets finished in the flat pet workshop. Here are my flat pets Nitro and Tallulah. When we got home from BlogPaws, Nitro's AKC Canine Good Citizen Award was waiting for us so I took photos of flat pet Nitro with the real Nitro CGC award. We had a great time at BlogPaws and if you have ever thought about going to BlogPaws, I highly recommend it for learning, networking and fun.


  1. Looks like you both had a great time. Did you take any of your dogs? Did Kristen? Hu-mom and dad were out of town that weekend, otherwise, hu-mom would have loved to attend since it was just downn the street! Wish it had been any other weekend!
