BarkWorld Expo 2012: Life with Arie Gets Going with Social PetWorking

by Katherine on October 26, 2012

Returning to BarkWorld

This weekend kicks off the pet bloggers mecca in the South (and across the country, really), BarkWorld Expo. Last year I came to this conference on a whim shortly after starting “Life with Arie”; I was terrified and excited, and I learned so much while I was there while also meeting some other amazing pet bloggers. I’m excited to be a returning blogger (I get to feel special with my very own Alumni ribbon) and I’m really looking forward to learning everything I can this year. Unfortunately, Arie has to stay at home…

Arie, a white German Shepherd, in her crate, upset that she can't go to BarkWorld

“Let me get this straight…you’re going to a conference, about dogs, people who love them, etc….with tons of treats and toys…and I’m not going?”

I love baby girl, but she’s staying at home thanks to her leash-reactive nature; I’ll be sure to share the swag though (oh, the swag!).

Stay in Touch!

Keep up to date with me as I go through the conference by tweeting with me @masdemoore, checking up on the Life with Arie Facebook page, and following us on Instagram @kmoore309.


.At the end of each day I’ll be sure to share all of the lovely nuggets of knowledge with you. Who else is here? Give me a shout!

Ooh, Barkworld! I hope you have a lot of fun (and get lots of swag…it seems like everybody that goes to those gets lots of swag)!

Poor Arie. She’ll be happier at home, likely.

Much happier at home. :) Less stress and lots of quiet.

She’s looking forward to the swag, too! Haha

I’m so sad I’m not there!! Hopefully I will be there next year though. :-)

I’m sad that you’re not here as well! I hope to see you next year

I am so glad I got a chance to meet you. Shiva was also bummed she couldn’t attend but I think the vendors were grateful. I hope Arie has been enjoying her treats!

It was absolutely wonderful to meet you as well! Arie has been going bananas lately as she got a few Christmas toys early so that she could enjoy them throughout the season. Hope Shiva is doing well!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Don’t forget to stop by Pet Blogs United next week for a week of giveaways.

Nubbin wiggles,
