Dogs With Blogs 2010 Tour

My greatest dream has now come true. I have met and have been expertly rubbed by Brooke and Greg, the founders of Dogs With Blogs!!!

I wondered why we were walking across the Burnside Bridge this morning, and it turns out that they were staying at the Jupiter Hotel and we were off to welcome them to Portland.

I cannot begin to tell you how much fun we had - sitting outside at the Life of Riley tavern and all getting to "know" each other. I feel like I know these two because we've both been around the dog blogging world for so long...

They got my attention instantly when they gave me a fantastic present - a bone-shaped stuffie with the Australian flag on it! Woo-hoo!

And I got this amazing souvenir of the Dogs With Blogs USA 2010 Tour!

Mama and I just LOVED them from the second we saw them. We laughed, and laughed, and laughed for hours.

They also both have some amazing tattoos - mama couldn't resist taking some pix...

We played here for HOURS - the time flew by...

Greg immediately became one of my favorite people in the entire world. He understands me on a deeper level, and he's the first person other than mama that I've allowed to get up close and personal with me since daddy passed away.

I gave him a couple of kisses to show my appreciation. He seemed to like it.

Brooke really knows how to give a great booty scratch - much appreciated after a long day!

By the end of the night, Greg and I were lounging on the sidewalk at the bar just like old friends. I know we will see each other again sometime, and we will always be super-duper friends. Mama promises to come and visit you in Australia sometime!!! And I send lots of love and Aire Kisses to Opy & Benson!!!!!

What a great day you had Bogart!So happy you enjoyed Greg and Brook's company, Is Greg able to "talk" to doggies? We are thinking that maybe he can do that. I talked to Coryelle once. I was "chatty", I bet you have a lot to say too.
your pals, Morgan & Maisie

Hey, Bogie the handsome! Glad you had a great time bonding with the founders of Dogs with Blogs. I have a Golden Retriever, and his name is Bossing. He's such an adorable dog. Treated by my kids like their youngest bro, Bossing also loves to run around and meet different people.

I hope I can get Bossing to meet other dogs too. I'm sure they'll have an awesome time sharing his favorite dog treats. Thanks for sharing your photos!
