BarkWorld this year! The first Social Media Conference she ever attended was the BarkWorld Expo in 2010. She still can't believe that she managed to go, since she's basically pretty shy and back then, wasn't so thrilled with flying… Boy she's come a long way! I was well represented by my doppleganger, "Pru On A Stick", since I don't fly, BOL! Brent Herd, the Southeast Director of Twitter, Inc. (Twitter baby!), Matt Meeker, co-founder of Meetup.com, Andy Nibley, the writer/director of the HBO Documentary "Madonna of the Mills", and Ed Sayres , the CEO of the ASPCA. The sessions are pretty impressive too! So many great choices! Social Petworking, Dog Yoga, Digital Scrapbooking, the list goes on! Then the fun stuff! A "Howl-oween" Pawty!, sponsored by the Atlanta Dog Spa & Petco. Themed Block Pawties and Prize Giveaways! One of the latest exhibitors to be added to the list is The Barktender's Guide"! Now many of you know that I often barktend at Twitter Pawpawties and at #NipClub so we're very excited to see this!

Every year, we go to "Because Your Dog Is Worth It Too" event, hosted by L'Oreal to benefit the Susan G. Comen "Race For The Cure". After a rainy start, the day turned out to be beautiful! We got an early start, which was a good thing. As the day went on, the crowds kept coming! Elwood! He was voted the "Ugliest Dog" a few years ago, but mom says he's "intriguing". And he's in a children's book now too! Pretty famous, I'd say! Elwood was accompanied by Coco, a cutie that was abandoned in an apartment, without food or water for days after his owner was arrested. Fortunately, a neighbor alerted Camden City Animal Control. Joa's Arc stepped in and Coco is now being fostered and is improving everyday. Joa's Arc website! There were so many pups and people there, some all dressed up in strollers, ready fur their spotlight!

If you read my blog, you know that I share my home with a few kitties. Since today is Black Cat Appreciation Day, I'd like to tell you about my (mostly) black cat pals, Wren and Sparrow. I know, very silly names for cats *looking at mom*.

Inspiration often comes unexpectedly. While reading one of our favorite blogs, Bailey Be Good this morning, mom was once again reminded of something that she has missed doing. Bailey's mom is an artist and she does beautiful portraits of the doggies that she knows. Now my mom is an artist too, and she's very fortunate to have a full time job as a technical illustrator and writer. But what she draws is just that, very technical. She's always considered herself an artist, and even majored in fine arts in college. Art jobs were scarce then and even more rare now. Mom loves being able to do what she loves, and considers herself very fortunate. All her drawings are done on the computer and she loves that part too. But every now and then she's reminded of the joy that drawing and painting by hand brings to her. Joan Brienza Nardozzi. Joan is another great inspiration fur mom. There are so many terrific anipal artists including BZTAT , 47 from Rocco's House, and Robin (who blogs fur Chesire)! So thank you to all the artists that we've met on line and in person that have inspired mom to get off her duff and start drawing again!
Thanks to Life With Dogs, Doggies and Stuff and Two Little Cavaliers fur hosting the Saturday Blog Hop!
And thank you fur stopping by!

Well pals, I'm staying at the Lounge fur a couple of days while mom is off to her first ever BlogHer conference! She's getting more nervous as she reads all the information coming in about it *shaking head* but I know she'll be fine. She's been to a few Social Media conferences before and always enjoys them. I think it's all the hype (and more than a few thousand expected attendees) that she's reading about. I've told her just to relax, learn as much as she can and get those networking skills in order. What makes it a Thankful Thursday is mom realizes that she's so very fortunate to be able to attend these conferences and that I'm able to chill at the Lounge with my buddies while she's busy! Thanks fur stopping by!
