FitDog Friday Reporting From BlogPaws!

Today is FitDog Friday, the weekly Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With LoveSlimDoggy and Peggy's Pet Place to promote a healthy active lifestyle for pets (and their people, too!) and to help combat pet obesity. Join in every Friday by linking up your FitDog story or visiting the blogs in the Hop. And be sure to comment and you'll be entered into a giveaway for great FitDog prizes!

This week's post comes to you from the BlogPaws pet blogger conference. Yesterday, Rocco and I met  up with our new pals Dolly the Doxie and Dolly's mom at the BlogPaws host hotel and we headed out for a morning walk.

It seemed like a great idea to get in a nice walk before the conference officially began, but the surroundings sure gave new meaning to "urban walk!" Still, even with construction all along the way, it  was a great feeling to get out on a little adventure with the pups.

Last weekend we met Dolly the Doxie and Sugar Golden Woofs at Lincoln Park in Chicago where we had a lovely pre-BlogPaws meet up with a romp for the dogs followed by a lovely walk around the park. We will post more about that adventure next week!
