Scenes From BlogPaws Conference 2015!

             We're glad she's back! We do look glad...don't we?

As we mentioned before Parental Unit left for the conference, she was thrilled to be attending BlogPaws 2015 on behalf of the Puccini Foundation, an amazing nonprofit dedicated to raising funds for pet cancer research and helping all pet parents learn the warning signs and treatments of pet cancers. And a portion of their funding is typically earmarked to help pet parents afford cancer treatments for their beloved pets—a win-win-win situation for all pet parents! Please stay tuned—we'll be writing a separate post on this part of the Foundation's efforts in the next few weeks.

In the meantime, we're excited to show you a few scenes from the conference where Parental Unit had the pleasure of hobnobbing with our fellow bloggers.

First, let's start with someone you all know and love: Angel Pip and Ruby's Parental Unit, Kristen Avery, from The Daily Pip. Parental Unit is so grateful that she got to meet Kristen in person—she's even more delightful than you can imagine!

And here's another blogging pal, Carma Poodale and her Parental Unit at Saturday evening's fancy awards dinner. Ms. Carma is a medical alert service dog, in addition to being beautiful.

Dr. Patrick Mahaney is Parental Unit's absolute favorite holistic veterinarian—his breadth and depth of knowledge, kindness, and willingness to speak from his heart make him second to none. And his session on pet cancer and treatments was fantastic!

Here's Diane Silver and her adorable pooch, Rocko the Havanese from To Dog With Love. We took our annual picture and had a nice chat.


Parental Unit's all-time favorite trio, Rene, Jim and Wyatt the dog from Tripawds. What they have done to help three-legged dogs and their human parents is nothing short of amazing! And, well, they're just so cool...

Here's handsome Chilly, from Helping Hands with his eye-catching "do".

And...pigs. Did we just say pigs? These two were probably the cutest, sweetest and friendliest all-around, and were mobbed for photos.

And last but far from least are two of the co-founders of BlogPaws, the stunning Yvonne DiVita and (almost equally as stunning) spouse, Tom Collins, heading to the Nose-to-Nose Awards on the red carpet. Congrats to you and your team for a seventh fantastic conference! We're so appreciative of your hard work to support pet bloggers and connect bloggers and brands.


Now, head over to the BlogPaws Special Edition Conference Blog Hop and check out more great photos!
