The trip to get there was a journey all its own. We get to the airport and ma is looking out to see if she can find the plane. When they started calling for passengers to board , she asked where the plane was. The guy pointed to this....
Ma yelled out "YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! Where is my plane?" Well, that was our plane. Ma was chewing chill pills like bubble gum.After we had taken off, I looked out and seen this....
I wanted what ma had but she said no. So I laid down until we went through some clouds, that plane started jumping and bumping and I started getting nervous.Ma pulled me up in her lap and that is where I rode the rest of the way.It made me feel much safer knowing she was holding me.
We got to the next airport in St. Louis where we got on a bigger plane and it was much nicer and smoother ride.
After we landed ,we caught a taxi and went to our first hotel. Since we waited a little while before deciding to go to Va. early , the host hotel was sold out but the alternate was really nice. We enjoyed a good night sleep before the action began.
The Residence Inn at Tysons Corner Mall was very clean and the staff was very friendly. They had a nice little fireplace in the entry .After a night time potty break ma sat in one of the comfy chairs while we waited for extra pillows for our room mate.
The next day we went to the Sheraton ,we checked in to the hotel and in for the conference.We mingled a bit and seen other bloggers we follow and friends we had met at other social conferences.

Then ma seen him. She has been wanting to kiss these spaniel cheeks for months. She says this face is what changed her mind about coming to Blogpaws. There are a ton of other reasons but she says this was the main reason.
I was ready to learn how to make my blog better, connect with other bloggers and see all the products and companies that were there. I had to bring her along because well, she paid for it all. Dexter walked up to her and kissed her first. She melted with love.
Then we seen Rocco from To Dog with Love. What a cutie! 8 mths old and so well behaved. He was a joy to be around.

I spotted Pepper AKA Pepperpom. She is a Service Dog and blogger like me.I was so happy to see her and she acted happy to see me.

After walking around a bit ma took me out for a potty break. We connected with other bloggers while we were outside also. Ma had her photo taken with a few of our friends.

While we were outside and our moms were talking to other people , Pepper and I were acting silly. We were acting like we were twins and whatever one did so did the other..
|If she looked right I would look right|
|If I looked forward , she would look forward|
|She smiled , I looked sad|
|She looked serious , I would laugh|
It was really fun to hang out with her. Then something else caught her attention.
|Hello, do you come here often?|
We headed inside to socialize some more.I have no idea where sissy Sarah went. She was off mingling and having a grand time. We met up with Jan Todd who I call Auntie Jan.

We seen so many people we knew or knew of. When people hear us say we went to a Pet Blogging Conference they don't understand but when you start naming off some of the blogs they automatically know some and say they follow those blogs. Its like meeting your favorite movie stars!

Ma and I love Lisa and follow all of her blogs. There are so many more to tell you about and more photos to share. So for now we will say-
