BlogPaws 2012

Kendall and I safely arrived in Salt Lake City yesterday for BlogPaws 2012. BlogPaws is a blogging and social media conference for pet bloggers. We took two days to drive here, and I had great intentions of taking lots of pictures along the way. However, everything I wanted to take pictures of I saw while driving. The rest stops didn’t offer much in picturesque scenery. We did stop at one of my favorite places, The Pendleton Woolen Mill, in Pendleton, OR.

Today we spent the day walking all over town. One of our stops was Temple Square in downtown Salt Lake City.

It was quite warm in Salt Lake City today, so Kendall and I wandered down the shady side of the street and found a great little cafe, The Judge Cafe, for lunch. I packed a collapsible water bowl and a bottle of water, so Kendall cooled off while I had lunch.

Walking along Main Street, I saw this great sign on a small store. I love the retro look.

Kendall picked up all kinds of grime in her feathers, so we went over to Paw Paw’s Self Serve Dog Wash, about a block or so from our hotel for a last minute fluff and buff.

The conference starts at 6:00 with a kickoff by Tillman, the skateboarding dog, and Norman, the scooter dog. Kendall got to meet both of them in the courtyard last night, but, of course, I didn’t have my camera with me. Can’t wait to see what great ideas I pick up at the conference.

  1. So jealous! We couldn’t make it this year…big wedding to be at!

    Please keep us all updated! Have FUN!

  2. Sounds like you guys had fun arriving early. I don’t think I’m going to have a chance to see much of Salt Lake City while we’re here, I’ll be too busy with the whole conference.

    It was great meeting you and Kendall today (sorry I was a bit of a space case, I am recovering from the drive over!). Hope you both have an awesome time at the rest of BlogPaws, and I’m sure we’ll see you there again.

  3. mom had a blast at Blogpaws! She says maybe I can go next year, since she’ll be able to drive there!

    • Thanks for stopping by the blog. Maybe we’ll see you at BlogPaws next year. Kendall won’t be able to go, though, because that’s a really long drive for us.
