This week’s pet photo comes from the annual BlogPaws conference where hundreds of bloggers, sponsors, and friends got together to share ideas and information. This 3-day conference, held in Virginia this year, featured amazing guest speakers, informative presentations, and a pet-friendly hotel.
Cubby’s smiling face represents all the dogs, cats, ferrets, hamsters, and guinea pigs who attended the conference and had a blast. The abundant food didn’t hurt either!
Cubby’s takeaways from the BlogPaws conference:
Help others to help yourself. BlogPaws donated over $12,500 to shelters and rescue groups this year. Rescue Ink, Bow Wow Buddies Foundation, Animal Rescue of Merrimack Valley, Mutts Matter, and Northwest International Pet Rescue all received checks for $2,500.
Find your Tribe. Ferrets, cats, and guinea pigs oh my! Your tribe will accept you just as you are. Pet people from all walks of life attended the conference.
Be Yourself. The featured guest speakers were unique individuals with original thoughts and ideas. From Rescue Ink’s force to Heidi Ganahl’s passion to Francois Gossieaux’s intelligence, all of the speakers had success stories and wisdom to share.
