Hope For Paws at BlogPaws!

Eldad & Audrey Hagar

Most of my regular readers and pals know about Eldad and Audrey from 
Hope for Paws. Mom interviewed them at their home, helping me with an article about them for The Anipal Times in 2010. 

At that time, they had just rescued a now famous little blind dog named Fiona. You've probably seen her video. It's completely viral - tons of newpapers, magazines, and TV stations have picked it up and run with it the last few weeks. I'm such an insider - I had such a jump on Fiona's story, her video wasn't even ready in time to be included in the article - but I did talk about her!  ; ) 

Eldad, Audrey and Fiona

Eldad showed Mom a video he was editing of a little dog he'd just rescued. She didn't realize until he mentioned it halfway through, that the little blind dog in the video was sitting on her lap. If Fiona's video affects you, imagine watching it with a clean and happy, but still blind Fiona licking your face. 

I was Editor-in-Chief of The Anipal Times, and we organized a Twitter Party (#ATPawty) with Hope for Paws as its beneficiary. We raised over $2000 in 24 hours towards Fiona's eye surgery to restore her sight in one eye. Yay!

Now, as a Special Projects Manager at BlogPaws, I'm very excited to have arranged for Eldad and Audrey to be at this year's BlogPaws Conference in Salt Lake City in June!

Eldad will be joining
My Favorite Pup Jasmine and Paige the Border Collie (and their moms) in a presentation about "The Power of YouTube."

Lauren Girard and Paige the Border Collie

My Fave Pup Jasmine and CJ Jackson

And this is just ONE session of One day. Check out the conference program for info on all the awesomeness that is this year's BlogPaws!

You won't have a better (certainly not a more fun) educational or networking opportunity if you're in any way involved or interested in animals, animal products, or pets in social media - or even if you just want to hang out with us wild and crazy animal lovers and meet all your online pals!

I'll even make it even easier for you -- > Use this code for a 20% discount on your BlogPaws registration

And you can bring your pets! 

It's a no brainer. See you there!

Giant Cat on Hollywood Boulevard!

It's always something, living on Hollywood Blvd. Mom was at work and heard on the radio that there was a giant cat sculpture made of Friskies cat food cans on the Walk of Fame in front of the Kodak Theatre. Apparently, this was to celebrate Leap Day, as Friskies "Plus" Day. 

It was gone by the time she drove by on her way home, but they said that it was made with 2000 cans that were then donated to local L.A. shelters. I wish I could have snuck out and walked down the street to see it, but ... the door was closed.
