I know what you are thinking, but Connie, you are so totally NOT a dog person, why on earth do you want to attend something called "Barkworld"
I have to tell you my first instinct is I so don't.. I am not bipetual - not that there is anything wrong with that - but it isn't for me.. but when I heard a number of the kitty bloggers were going I had a closer look at it. When I looked at the schedule, and saw that a number of the sessions were geared towards cats I thought how interesting and when I saw the "MeowWorld Breakfast" I was really interested.
Besides, it is also a great opportunity to hang out with other pet bloggers. Seriously, there is something special about doing that, and I really recommend doing so if you ever thought 'that might be fun'..
Other reasons to attend... taken right from their page.
