One of the best things to happen to my blogging empire was to make little sis Bailie my official PR Dog! I’m quite a diva dog and also very reserved and proper. I wait for people to come to me, and I don’t have much use for dogs I don’t know coming into my space. Bailie on the other paw, armed with just her furry self and some business cards took BlogPaws attendees by storm! She most definitely brought awareness to My GBGV Life and won over many hearts of BlogPaws attendees!
Shy is not a word Bailie understands. Her first victim on the night we arrived in Nashville was Tom Collins one of the founders of BlogPaws. She was all over him last year, and remembered him this year. Bailie is not afraid of starting at the top!
Bailie didn’t waste time getting cozy with Caroline Golon, another BlogPaws founder. The next day, she even had Caroline brushing her fur! No shame with my PR Dog!
During the Friday morning keynote speech, Bailie got Carol Bryant to lie down on the floor with her. They were schmoozing up a storm. Carol is the Marketing and PR person for BlogPaws, so Bailie knows who to “woo”.
Even Dexter, star of Carol’s blog Fidose of Reality, didn’t mind posing with Bailie. My GBGV Life does not discriminate. We love everyone one regardless of fur, no fur, feline, canine, feathers, white, orange, pink…only reptiles are not allowed. Sorry about that, but Mom can’t deal with reptiles.
Bailie’s secret weapon would be her huggles. She loves huggles, combination hugs and snuggles. At BlogPaws 2014, she started giving out huggles. Melissa, from Barking from the Bayou got huggles last year and couldn’t wait to get more this year!
Mauja and Atka reminded Bailie of Katie. They attempted to “get the wild pants on” a few times in the lobby, but the pet parents said no to that. Their blog is, It’s Dog or Nothing.
Andrick is the video guy for PetSafe. He openly admits to being a dog lover and to loving hugs. Can you see where this is going? Yep, the two of them shared a real nice hug/huggle!
Bailie met Chilly, but she was pretty scared of a dog with colored fur. It took her until the last night of BlogPaws to get up the courage to sit somewhat near and take a photo. A good PR Dog can’t let a thing like colored fur stand in the way of brand promotion.
The boys mom, Rachael, was not immune to huggles either. Bailie had no qualms getting right up into her face. They have a fun blog called My Dog Likes.
We have a Newfie in our nose work class who is kind of the class clown, so when Bailie saw Jen from My Brown Newfies, she just had to huggle her!
One of the other Multiple Pet Mania hosts is Jan from Wag’n’Woof Pets was also at BlogPaws. Bailie enjoyed meeting her and took several different opportunities to huggle and kiss her.
Mom met Jodi in DC two years ago, but she wasn’t in Vegas last year, so Bailie was finally able to show her some love this year in Nashville. Jodi sure loved it! She has a super funny blog, Heart Like a Dog.
There were many more huggles over the four days, but not all were captured on camera, and we had to limit the number of photos in this post at some point. I’m so thankful to have a PR Dog who doesn’t mind getting out there and schmoozing with anyone at any time. Bringing her along was a great investment as she was totally in her element!
