I lied. I’m not going to talk about Jones’ newest products today. I thought long and hard and decided to save it for Tuesday. Yes? Today I tell you about the dog bloggers I’ve met here today, at the Global Pet Expo!
Beth is Gizmo’s mama. Gizmo couldn’t have a nicer mama, or be a sweeter terrier. We wandered all over the trade show, asking questions, picking up samples (I’ll be doing a giveaway soon with some of the samples I picked up), making friends along the way.
Beth is a DEAR. I adore her blog, Terrier Torrent, and her little Gizmo is the perfect gentleman. He took issue, though, when two Great Pyrenees ganged up on him.
It was the first time I’d see either of the dogs stand up. Remember the Pyrs from yesterday? Eventually things settled out.
Gizmo’s mom had to get involved. But that was okay. We wound up asking lots of questions about their products, finding out more about their durable, long-lasting soft comfort cones. Nifty product. If I had a dog which had hot spots or allergies, I’d order one of these in a heart beat.
As Beth and I wandered, we found other dogs. Puppies, in fact.
And glamorous foreign models, hired by a large pet food company to hold the puppies and lure people in.
Jones doesn’t have glamorous foreign models. They have me. Which I happen to think is better. I keep telling myself that … 😀
Past the puppies, we came to a booth with dog hair products. From the makers of BioSilk, there’s DogSilk, I think. The product is BioSilk, ph balanced for a dog’s skin. It feels and smells great on my skin, as well as on a dog’s coat. Mmmmm.
Beth was looking for Pepper, Angel’s Pomeranian. Pepper found us. Rather, Pepper found Gizmo and alerted her mama. There’s no love lost there, but Beth and Angel get along famously.
Pepper is a little large for a Pom, which I think is rather nice. And there we have two dog bloggers … my third dog blogger, Christie, is Lulu’s mom! Christie, of Life With Beagle, has a press pass and it was nearly lunch time before we finally found each other. Christie and Beth are both Central Florida dog bloggers.
Last, but not least, I met Olivia, the very first Brussels Griffon I’ve ever seen. OMD. I fell in love. It might be safer to say that Olivia fell in love with me.
I sat on the floor for the express purpose of getting to know little Olivia.
Her mama makes and sells dog treats, so I didn’t collect her contact info (competitor), but I had a long talk with the mama. This tiny dog is a rescue pup. The Brussels Griffon has a wiry coat, a severe underbite, and is the most affectionate dog I’ve come in contact with this week. It leaned into me every time I tried to back away so I could get off the floor.
I mean, look at that face! So ugly it’s cute. And a killer cute personality. The mama has another rescue BG at home in New York City.
Y’all, I’m tired. I’m going to tell you all about Jones’ new products next week. We’ll have another giveaway the following week. I’ll be giving away product samples for some cool stuff you may not have heard of. But right now? I’m going to find a quiet corner, curl up and pass out. M’kay?
Until I write again …
