Fashion Friday! #BlogPaws Style


I'm organizing Coco's wardrobe for the BlogPaws Conference next month...I may have to check an extra bag, just for her clothes, necklaces, leads and shoes!


Here's the hat I got to go with her 'Las Vegas' outfit, what do you think?




By the way, it's only 39 days til the BlogPaws Conference. If you are still 'On The Fence' about attending, all the Best Dressed Pets will be there, and what's not to like about that! Maybe watching this video from last years conference will help convince you it's the most fun on two OR four legs ever!

Wordless Wednesday, #BlogPaws Style!


Since #BlogPaws holds a weekly Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop, I think we should focus on our participation in the upcoming BlogPaws 2014 conference! Guess we won't be 'Wordless' today!

I have attended 4 BlogPaws conferences and always with the cats! While they can be distracting and the pawparrazi slow our progress in getting to the sessions...that isn't a complaint but one of the things I love about being surrounded by true animal lovers for three fun-filled and educational days!


As our friends know, Coco and I will be joining up with Carol Bryant of the Wigglebutt Warriors to kick off  "Meet the Rescues" at the BlogPaws Conference on Friday evening, May 9th and talk about our experience with Creative Fund Raising for Rescues. Carol has a wonderful story of her own about how being at the first BlogPaws conference changed her life! It truly did! Read what she has to say about that HERE!


So if you would like to be part of a Life Changing experience, please join us at the Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort for the best 3 days of your pet-lovin' life! And here's the code to use when you register, to get a 10% discount, too! And Coco and I are hoping we can get a pawtograph from Manny, the Frenchie...Coco said she'd wear her Paris Pink dress and beret and hope Frenchie will give her a...well, you know...one of those kisses! At least, I know Coco & I will be going to the session he will be presenting on 'How To Be An Instagram Star! 


Oh, and right after you register for the #BlogPaws Conference...
Don'f forget to Hop!

Monday Mewsings! Best Dressed Pet!


Not all our blog followers are on Facebook,  so some of you may still be wondering...'How did Coco fare at the Super Pet Expo in Chantilly, Virginia this past weekend?'


I, for one, was not sure if putting her in any other costume than the 'Pink Confection' pageant dress could garner enough votes from the judges and the crowd. But I decided to go with the ensemble she was wearing for her TV clip, as Hello Kitty is always popular.

We did have some inventive competition, including a Chia Pet, a Hippie, a Ray of Sunshine and a Bunny named Bubbles, dressed for a night on the town.





But in the judges eyes and the votes gathered by applause from the crowd...it was Coco, the Yellow Sub and the 16 year old Athlete Dog!



And Coco, the reigning queen, won Best Dressed Pet 2014!


I am not sure if it was the Hello Kitty dress, or the socks that looked like Mary Jane's, or her pink Kitty Wig of long flowing locks, but one judge said it was that the whole ensemble was well put together!



After winning the title for the second year in a row, and posing for photos afterwards, Coco and I strolled around the Expo, making friends and having fun shopping!

Fashion Friday, #SuperPetExpo style!


Well, it's that time of year again, time for the Super Pet Expo! 

Last year, Coco and I went for the first time, and while it's most a Super Dog Expo, I wanted to enter her in the Best Dressed Pet contest just for fun!

Well, it was more than fun...Coco won! She was wearing her Pink Confection dress from Poshy Pet, her matching pill box hat from ZK Hat Couture and the perfect accessory, the hot pink Bangle Leash from Fabuleash!


This year,  we also got on TV Friday morning on Fox 5's Good Morning DC show in a cute little clip...

 This year, I decided to be a little less flashy and Coco wore a cute ensemble of a Hello Kitty dress from Tammy Peace, a school girl hat from ZK Hat Couture and the cutest little socks that look like Mary Jane shoes (and are much more comfortable than shoes for Coco, too).



We got to meet one of the cute contestants, a very fluffy Lion Head bunny named Bubbles, in a Country Girl outfit! 


Coco will have to really strut her stuff to win, with competition like the bunny!

Wordless Wednesday, #BlogPaws Style!


BlogPaws 2014 is only 50 days away! Coco and I will once again flying off to BlogPaws Pet Blogger Conference this year!


We had a fun time learning and schmoozing together in 2012 in Salt Lake City! And what's even more exciting, this year we will be joining up with our good friend, Carol Bryant of  Fidose of Reality  in speaking about Creative Fundraising for Rescues!


We know we'll see many of our blogging friends there, but if you are undecided on whether you should attend or not... how about the thrill of meeting Coco! Or a zillion other things that make BlogPaws conferences worth going to! You can even save 10% off the registration fee by using our special discount code:

Teri has been to 4 of them, and she says it's the most fun she's had while getting educated! I thought I'd share some of my favorite photos from the 2012 #BlogPaws conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.





Do you need a mini-vacation? Do you want to become a better blogger? Do you want to get fashion tips from Coco? We'd love see you there, at #BlogPaws 2014! 

Join us at the Westin Las Vegas Resort & Spa in Henderson Nevada May 8-10, 2014! (Teri says she is going to indulge and treat herself to a Moroccan Refresher Facial and maybe a Fusion Stone Massage!)

Oh, and once you've finished daydreaming about going to BlogPaws 2014, don't forget to Hop!

Monday Mewsings, St Paddy's Style


Coco was a good sport about dressing up in a tacky St Patrick's Day costume...


Because I never got around to ordering her something appropriate for 'The Wearin' o' the Green'...


I told her I wasn't going to make her put on that silly green Afro.
But I did, just long enough to snap a photo though...


Maybe next year she can model something in green, like this!


Happy St. Patrick's Day to all our fans, and that's no Blarney!

Fashion Friday...Las Vegas, Baby!


As you know, Coco and I will be jetting to Las Vegas in May!


With that in mind, when I saw this outfit embellished with the words 'Las Vegas', I couldn't resist!


It took a little nipping and tucking to fit the svelte Ms Coco, but here's the finished outfit!


Now to find the perfect hat to go with it...


Something a showgirl would wear?


A girl knows, accessories make the outfit!
