Life with Sampson and Delilah….The 411

My Dilemma…(Day One Hundred and Thirteen)

There’s a blogging conference being held outside of Washington, DC in August; and I really want to attend.  The hotel it is being hosted at has agreed to waive their “No Pets” policy and I really want to bring Sampson.  I know if I could get him in front of the right person, I can get some exposure and here’s why.

Today when I picked the dogs up from daycare I was greeted by a very sweet woman who came out and said, “I just love your dogs; especially Sampson. ”  She offered her hand and said, “My name’s Robin, and your dogs are just so sweet!”    This is not the first time this has happened, this happens to me with almost everyone that meets him; he is really quite the charmer.  I know if I could bring him to the conference, it might really be an opportunity to have some doors opened for us; but here is my dilemma; he’s a big boy and he loves to see other dogs and people and I’m just not sure how he would behave while I was sitting in a seminar.  I think he would be ok once he met all the other dogs, but until then he would see a dog or a new person, jump up and just about knock them down.  I would hate to bring him all that way and have to leave him in the room the entire time; so I thought I would throw it out to all of you and see if anyone has any thoughts?

Day Seventy Six – New Toys

When I went to the Pet Writing Conference I took a seminar on blogging from a really awesome group of people from blogpaws and I learned a few things.

Headers and bullet points:

Use headers and bullet points to help different topics or paragraphs in your blog standout.  You do this in order for people to skim quickly through your blog and find the items or topics that are of importance to them.

Speaking of the conference:

We got some goodie bags at the conference and since Hartz was one of the sponsors my bag had two items from Hartz in it; a ball and a chew toy that helps keep the dog’s teeth clean.

Chew Toy,  Football

I gave the ball to Delilah,

 Lesson one; always give the first toy to Delilah, at least then Sampson has a chance! 🙂

The ball was a big hit; both dogs love the squeaky toys.  They take the ball and run through the house….squeak, squeak, squeak.

Then I gave the bone to Sampson…

Sampson loved the chew bone…until Delilah took it away, now they are sharing it but I will go to the store tomorrow to see if I can find another one.

Both of the toys are very sturdy and durable, and I do recommend them if you are looking for some toys or chewing items for your dog.
