All Aboard for BlogPaws!

Guess what? The other day, I opened my pee-mail and found the Most Exciting letter and I couldn’t wait to share it with you! I printed it out but then I ate it.

So now I can’t remember ‘zactly word-for-word what it said so I’m just gonna go off of memory and I’m sure I’ll get close. But mom seems to think that’s not good enough and has INSISTED on putting in some things she calls “disclaimers” so just ignore those, okay?

Alrighty, here’s what I think it said:

Dearest Mayzie, (Disclaimer from mom: It wasn’t actually addressed to Mayzie)

My name is Rachael Ray (Disclaimer: It wasn’t actually from Miss Ray). I don’t know if you know who I am but I read your bloggie every single day (Disclaimer: this is doubtful) and I am a big, HUMONGOUS fan of yours (Disclaimer: Oh, forget it. Just assume almost everything in this letter is made up.). I don’t know if you’ve heard of this nifty pet blogger conference coming up called BlogPaws (Disclaimer: Okay, this is actually a real thing) and I would be just over the MOON if you would come as my guest. I’ll even order up some special cheese just for you! Let me know what you think. I can’t wait to hear from you!

Your biggest fan, 


Well, I literally fell on the floor with excitements!

See, I think Miss Rachael is the best. It’s pawsible she might actually luvs foodables as much as I do and the stuff she makes on TV looks DEE-lish! Oh, and I like the way she says, “YUMM-OH!” whenever she eats something she really likes.

Plus, she not only makes HUMAN noms, she makes dog noms, too!

Rachael Ray NutrishPlus, she has a super Most Adorable pit bull named Isaboo.

PLUS, PLUS, PLUS (and this is the BEST plus!)…she has a program called Rachael’s Rescue where she donates some of the green papers she makes from her dog food to rescues like North Shore Animal League and BAD RAP.

Now, I was all set to pack my bags when I realized that I would have to fly on a plane to get to BlogPaws cuz it’s all the way in this place called Tyson’s Corner, Virginia. And between you and me, I think that there’s a reason the Big Brindle in the Sky didn’t give me wings. I’m pretty sure I’m s’posed to keep all four paws on the ground.

But THEN, I had a super great idea and so I wrote back asking if mom could come in my place. Well, as you can imagine, Miss Rachael was a teensy bit disappointed but she said okay. Isn’t that PAWSOME?

So off mom goes to BlogPaws next week courtesy of the super nice peoples at Nutrish! When I told her, I thought mom was gonna pee her pants she was so excited! She can’t wait to meet all the other crazy mentally well-balanced pet people and some of our bloggie furends in person! Plus, she knows she’s going to learn oodles of stuff while she’s there, too!

I'm going to BlogPaws 2013 badge

So thank you, thank you to Rachael Ray’s Nutrish for giving us this Most Amazing opportunity! And if any of you are going — or sending your mom or dad — let us know so mom can be on the lookout for you, okay?

And for those of you who aren’t going, there will be a pawty in my condo while mom’s away. But, um, let’s just let that be our little secret, okay?

mayzie look


  1. That’s so exciting! Mr B & I were invited to go to represent the deaf dog community, and fortunately Tyson’s is less than an hour from here but unfortunately we have other things going on that weekend (with five kids it seems like there’s always something)… Hope mom has lots of fun and don’t party too much while she’s gone 😉

  4. Wow, that is just terrific. Hope the Mom has a wonderful time and brings home lots and lots of treats for all of you. Take care.

  5. Oh that sounds great, maybe your mom can tell us about her adventure, when she is back. I always eat the mails too, I call it : resided in tray “S” (stomach)
