Daily Photo Reprise: Disco and Brighton, 2013

Of all the photos I’ve taken so far of people and animals at BlogPaws this one came out the best without any correction from Photoshop, so you get to meet Disco, a Sphynx, and Brighton, a Cornish Rex, of Curlz and Swirlz, wearing their conference casual clothes. Their fur sister, Coco, was staying in their carriage for the moment. I’ll post a few more photos of them and even their human when I get home and can play around with them. Sketches of these two coming up next!

Yes, I’m away for a bit, and having some serious issues with posting, not to mention what Mimi and the kids are probably saying behind my back!

Cats and Dogs and Bunnies and Ferrets at BlogPaws, and a Few People

Meet Brighton in his dapper Edwardian gentleman’s costume; even though the photo is a little blurry, I love the expression on his face. The hat shortly came off, but the rest of the outfit seemed to suit him just fine as he posed next to his hat. Giuseppe wants to know if Mlle. Daisy Emerald would like to see him in such an outfit. I would think she would like that very much! Brighton was also featured yesterday in photos and sketches, but I just can’t pass up Brighton and Disco when they’re dressed for a party.

I went to BlogPaws this past weekend, and the greatest fun was meeting all the other bloggers I’ve “virtually” met and putting a face with the name. But looking at the photos I took it’s not clear that there were actually humans there since most of my photos were the animal attendees—cats, dogs and a bunny and ferrets!

Yes, this is where I have been since Thursday, and despite the fact I’d set up posts to post ahead of time, my Netbook and the hotel’s connection were so poor I didn’t get much accomplished despite my plans. I even missed an entire day! But don’t worry, nothing is wrong, and thanks for everyone’s concern who asked. I’ll just have to plan better next time.

I’m posting a selection of photos from the weekend, in no particular order. I thought I’d photographed more people, but for the most part only humans holding animals made it into my photos…I lost my cheat sheet of names I’d recorded from people and animals I didn’t know, so I don’t have all the animals, people and blogs in the captions, but click the images to go to the blog association with the human or the animal in the photo if there is one.
