Some news and a little help...

I'm very excited...want to know why? Because my human is going to BlogPaws!! (I'd be a little more excited if I got to go, but apparently there will not be any beds to hide under and plenty of people I don't know.)

I'm going to BlogPaws 2010 badge

BlogPaws is the first ever conference for pet bloggers. It's being held in Columbus, OH on April 9th and 10th. Jen was going to go no matter what, but one of her clients at work is now going to be a sponsor, so she said that she is twice as excited now.

For everyone who doesn't know, BlogPaws is a chance for pet bloggers to meet face-to-face and then join in discussions about their pets, blogging and how to make a difference in the world. And speaking of making a difference, attendees get to vote on their favorite rescue charity and the top two will receive all the profits from the conference!

Has anyone else decided to go?

On another note, my good friend Parker needs some help.  Her favorite charity can win $10,000 in a video contest, but they need people to vote.  Please visit http://extraordinarymeasuresthemovie.com/#/quilt and vote for the video titled 7000 Stories by Trish.  You'll be helping Wayside Waifs, a rescue organization that helps thousands of kitties and woofies a year!

  3. Tuck, our mom heard about BlogPaws and was very interested in going...but she didn't want to just go by herself without knowing if any other bloggers that she knows going. We're gonna tell her that your human is going and see if she wants to go! It would be about a 4-5 hour drive for her...

    Let us know if you find out if any other bloggers are going...

  7. How exciting! We can't wait to hear more about it.

    Our Humans would like to go but we can't let them. It's too far away from Northern Europe - and us ;-)

  18. Our official thank you note:

    Thank you so much for all the purrs and prayers for our little hansel. It means the world to us- and we truly believe that with everyone in the cb - it's how we got through all of this. We don't know what we'd do without everyone! Hansel is doing very well - walking around, but we did have to put his cone on- as he thinks he should eat his sutures. He is eating, taking meds, drinking, using the litter box, everything is fantastic!

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

    -mom bean,
    and the whole gang!
