Are you ready to see another PepperPom adventure? Here's BarkWorld 2013!
Mom packed a lot of stuff into our little car, including my Dogger Stroller. Then we went for a loooooooong car ride to Atlanta, GA.
When we arrived, my pal Emmy was already there. She is so nice, and gives excellent tushie scritches! BOL! Emmy brought my favorite hamster - Charlotte - with her.
The photo is blurry because Charlotte was busy exercising while Mom was using the camera. BOL! The next day we had a fun and busy time. We speed-dated several great companies, and went to a pawty sponsored by Natural Balance. On Friday and Saturday I enjoyed sniffing all of the sponsors' booths.
I posed with StarWars Princess Leia buns on my head at the Petco booth. Look at all the pawsome StarWars pet products! I LOVE the toys!! BOL! These furrific toys and other StarWars pet items will be available at Petco and Unleashed by Petco on September 1. I will bark more about them before Halloween.
We attending some educational sessions, including one about positive training. I volunteered to be a demo dog.
I showed people that I could "come" to Mom when called. Mom made me walk a long way to reach her and the treats.
Victoria Stilwell autographed her new book for me.
This is my cute little pal Sophia Loren. People think we look alike, except that I am MUCH larger. BOL!!
