Bound for PetSafe's Paw Print Blogger Summit
Hi everyone, Katie here.
Word in the Townhouse is the Cat Sitter will be paying us a visit soon. No, not to take care of the sniffly-nosed Glogirly. Next week, our girl and her box of kleenex are flying to the Smoky Mountains. Knoxville, Tennessee to be exact.
The nice people at PetSafe have invited Glogirly to attend their second annual Paw Print Blogger Summit at their corporate headquarters in Knoxville! They even invited ME, however I need to stay home to watch over the Townhouse. And Waffles.
You might not recognize PetSafe by name...but we KNOW you'll recognize some of their awesome products. In fact, one of our most favorite that we use every single day is made by PetSafe - our Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain. We had a giveaway a few months ago for this fountain and cats across the country were falling over themselves to enter.
PetSafe specializes in pet behavior, lifestyle and containment product solutions. They cater to both cats and dogs. ...but we're not going to hold the dog-thing against them.
They also make the Come With Me Kitty leash and harness - right up Waffles' alley. They do treat and food dispensers, litter boxes, Lickety Stick treats and of course TOYS.
It's going to be an exciting four days for Glogirly and a dozen other pet bloggers. There's a variety of presentations planned about product innovation, philanthropy and shelter programs, tours, a vet school visit, doggy training (gasp!) and more. I'm pretty sure I saw dinner and cocktails on the agenda more than once and a concert too.
Glogirly's invitation was a total surprise and she's thrilled to be able to take advantage of such a wonderful opportunity. The generous people at PetSafe have taken care of everything. In addition to her all-expense-paid trip, I hear she'll be coming home with STUFF. (!)
I wouldn't be surprised if there's another cool giveaway in our future!
