BlogPaws 2013 is behind us now. But, it's still fresh in memory and the chatter on social media is buzzing across all channels! The BlogPaws team accepted a big responsibility this year and we rose to the task. It was our job to make this year's conference outstanding and many of you told us we did that. In reality, all of YOU were instrumental in making this year's conference the sell out it was. Without all of YOU (on-site attendees and virtual attendees, alike)...we would not be here, nor would we be able to bring together the strong voices, experienced bloggers, and brands that count - to work together, save pets, and make the world a better place for all.
I was asked by a number of you to share my opening remarks. So, here they are - enjoy. And do share, if you feel compelled to do so.
Success Breeds Success - 365 Days a Year - from BlogPaws, opening night, May 16th, 2013
I was one of those kids who wanted a dog so badly, I’d pester my parents every Christmas, every birthday, every Easter… well, every day. I need a dog. I had to have a dog. When I was 12, I was blessed with a wonderful dog, a Shepard/Collie mix, who I named, Missy.
Missy and I were inseparable. I took her everywhere with me! She was polite, well-trained, always came when called, and she was the most loyal companion anyone could ever have. It was, “Love me, Love my Dog.”
