Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: The BlogPaws Swag Is Out of the Bag

Thankful Thursday Blog Hop Swag - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!
Well, it was a long time coming, but the Dad finally helped us open the big bag of swag that he brought back from BlogPaws.  It was so long that we played like we weren’t interested for a little while, at least until things started smelling good and sounding good.

There was a whole bunch of nice goodies too and we’re thankful to all of the BlogPaws folks, the sponsors and the pals that contributed to the goodie bag. Oh, before I forget, the swag bag is a pretty comfy place for a snoozy and Sister Dolly claimed that spot right off.

Today is a bit unusual for us, we have a video of the swag.  We usually don’t do videos because the Dad was unsure of them, but he attend a good session at BlogPaws to learn how to do it.  Hopefully it will play for you, if not you can catch it on YouTube: HERE.

We are thankful for all the fun tucked in that way cool bag. What are you thankful for today? Tell us in your comments and join us for our Blog Hop please.

Hi Brian! My flat self & Mom got to meet your flat self & your Dad! They thought that was pretty cool. Yah, isn’t the swag great! BlogPaws and all the sponsors & vendor folks treat its attendees very well! My swag bag just showed up yesterday. Mom says she would sort it with me. Some of it goes to the D-O-G in my household, but most of it is for ME! What is your fav piece of swag?

Your Dad brought home lots of fun & tasty stuff! I think that catnip banana might be the best thing in the bag.

HI Brian. ERin v0.5 and +1 REALLY loved getting to meet your dad, and they were so thankful for so many other welcoming faces too. I only got to keep the nip nanna from the conference, and even that was very touch and go as to whether customs cats would confiscate it for their own use. MOL

That was a terrific video. Dad Terry learned well. Brian, we see you went right for the bag of nip. Our mom still hasn’t broken out the swag bags yet, except to give lots of stuff to Chris for her kitty. She says that she’s going to give some more away before we get anything. Pffft! She seems to think that tower/sphere should be enough to keep us happy. Thanks for having this hop.

Your Dad sure brought you some good stuff. I’m still awaiting some of mine cos TW doesn’t think I’ll like it or something or maybe there’s no place to put it. Loved the video. Did TW remember to give you a CK magnet?

Did they teach you how to find music that won’t get you in copyright trouble? I have a lot of trouble with finding music that it’s ok to use.

I love seeing you kitties in action. Thanks to your dad for making a video!
