Homecomings and Your Pets

Oliver Enjoyed the Sheraton's Beds ...
...Both Awake and Asleep
How can I adequately describe the joy of my return from Blogpaws? Sure, I had a great time. I learned; I laughed; I networked; I made new friends. Tally that all up and they still don't approach the feeling of pulling into my driveway and having Tanner and Jacque  come running up to meet me. Even Patches--an indoor kitty--awaited her greeting at the foyer. I dropped to the floor and sucked in their smells. It was so good to be home.

, as we do, sharing the health and vitality of their great recipe. While Oliver does not ride a scooter, he does want you to know that he officially attempted to say hello to every human and dog at the conference. He is, after all, my PR front man. That was no small feat with 500 in attendance.


I'll give you more tidbits about our adventure during the next week. For now, it's important that you remember to sign up for Event Barkers' upcoming Twitter Party, #WorkLikeaDog. 

Oliver and I worked like dogs logging in  over 1900 miles on our road trip, stopping to visit family along the way. I've been driving a Toyota Prius for several years now, and
was eager to see what my mileage would be on an all-highway trip. Opposite of most other cars, hybrids get lower mileage on the Interstate, yet I still managed to pull off 47.50 miles per gallon. That was definitely news worth coming home to. Woo hoo!

Care to share? Comment with an especially heart-warming homecoming that you and your pet have shared. We'll all be nodding our heads :)

I had a great welcome home reception when I came home too!
It was so nice to meet you and Oliver last week!

Holy smokes! Forty seven miles to the gallon? That's great! I drive a minivan (three teens and two large-ish dogs), but the teens are getting their own vehicles soon. Thinking of downsizing soon. Outside of mileage, do you like the way the Prius drives? I'm afraid I'll be blown off the road in a small car.

Did you stop by the Jones booth and meet the chicks? Your Oliver is adorably familiar.

It sounds like you had a great time at Blog Paws. But there is nothing like coming home! :)



Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

@Flea: Luv, luv, luv my Prius. It handles well, is very comfortable, roomy & includes plenty of cup holders, a must with a big family. Oil changes only 1 X yearly! The back seats fold down to make lots of room for 3 dogs & their beds. Around town I get 51-56 MPG :)
