 Back in July, I won a trip to BarkWorld with my post Top 10 Reasons I Want to go to BarkWorld. I was able to take both of my assistants, and we were all very excited to go. We loaded up the Garth-Mobile and drove all the way to Atlanta, Georgia.

Waiting for my driver to take me to BarkWorld

Checking in at the registration desk

BarkWorld, Day 1

The first night I got all dressed up for the party
 But soon decided to relax and get naked

Sugar of Golden Woofs snuggled up to dad's leg for a nap

And I got awesome bellyrubs from Emmy (Emmy the Pet Sitter) 

I even met a guide dog in training, Mr. Bean,
who is from my own hometown

BarkWorld Day 2

I posed for photos with my buddies,
Gizmo (Terrier Torrent),
Sugar, and Oz (Oz the Terrier)
(mom says I look like a bratty teenager in this photo)

I was very good posing with my pal Gizmo

I showed off my amazing impulse control for some
super yummy Be Pawsitive treats at the BePawsitive booth

"See, I can even do it with both paws"

I finally smiled for a photo with Sugar

Sugar was always smiling
I got Victoria Stilwell (Positively) to autograph my book

and I shamelessly solicited bellyrubs

BarkWorld, Day 3

We got a photo with our #PetChat buddies

Rocco (To Dog With Love) was cuter than ever

I looked fabulous in my Pruven bandana

 I posed in front of the Pruven booth

 I posed with two giant stuffies from Petco

 I woofed for some Zuke's treats that Sugar's momma had

I drooled for some Zuke's treats

 I held a very important meeting with Sugar, 
Linus (Little Dog Linus), and Fabulous McGrady 
(PeoplePets says we're among the Cutest Pets on Twitter)

Pepper (Pepper's Paws) was ridiculously cute
(speaking of cute) 

I finally got a photo of Me and Carma (Carma Poodale)

mom got a better #PetChat photo without her in it
And I endured Yoda ears for enough time to take one photo

Of course there was much more to BarkWorld than fun & posing for photos.  We learned SO much that we plan to share with you in upcoming posts.
