Pet Travel Cross Country Tail Waggin Tour

Written by Rachel Phelps

I have HUGE news! is going on the road soon and we can’t wait! We will be visiting nine states (ok, some are plane layovers, and will be very short … but it still sounds pretty awesome to say NINE states!). So, I am sure you are asking, where are you going? Well, here is the map!

State 1: Tennessee
Leave my home to drive with my rents to Nashville, Tennessee to catch my flight.

State 2: Colorado
I have a layover in Denver Colorado.

State 3: Utah
I land and spend six great days in Salt Lake City, Utah for the BlogPaws Conference. What is Blogpaws? BlogPaws is an online community site (and a conference) for pet bloggers, pet enthusiasts, pet people on Twitter and Facebook, and brands eager to tap into a growing, vibrant, vocal, community of serious writers, bloggers, tweeters.

State 4: Arizona
I leave Utah and have a layover in Phoenix, Arizona

State 5: New Mexico
I land in Albuquerque, New Mexico (hopefully I won’t take a wrong turn) to spend time with my “aunt” Ali and my best Weim pals, Bayliss, Dottie, and Zoomer. They are taking me to a huge dog park and showing me lizards that I can chase. I can’t wait!

State 6: Missouri
I leave New Mexico and have a layover in St. Louis, Missouri.

State 7: Kentucky
I land in Louisville, Kentucky and Elvis and my Dad are picking my Mom and I up at the airport.

State 8: Ohio
We travel by car to Cincinnati Ohio to visit Iams/Eukanuba headquarters and attend the Westies United big annual westie meet up.

State 9: Indiana
We drive through Indiana to get home back to my house in Kentucky.

I’m tired just thinking about this trip. Regardless, I’m so excited to see the western side of the country and see all my pals in Utah, New Mexico, and Ohio in a few weeks! So, you will have to stay tuned, and follow the Tail Wagging Tour 2012!
