Linda Blair World Heart Pawty, BarkWorld, and the Hop

This is a super busy Saturday for us! First, tonight is the exciting pawty on Twitter to benefit the Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation. The organization's mission is:
to make sure that every animal we rescue is given a second chance at a happy life and a loving forever home. Linda’s status as a public figure helps to bring much needed attention to growing problems related to animal welfare and the work required to stop animal abuse and neglect.
They have a new facility in Acton, California that they are continuously updating to make the rescued animals comfortable and happy as they wait to be placed in forever homes.

If you have never pawtied on Twitter before, this one is going to be a great introduction. Maybe you aren't even on Twitter. It doesn't matter - jump in, create an account and follow the pawty. The theme is Hollywood because we all know Linda is a star! If you are new to Twitter, create a Twitter account at www.Twitter.com.

Join the pawty by going to www.tweetgrid.com. The pawty hash tag is #Lub2Rock. This means whenever you tweet (type a short message up to 140 characters) you need to include #Lub2Rock. If you really want to join in and need some help, comment on this blog and we will help you. You can find the menu, DJs and other info by clicking here. I'm DJing tonight at 7 p.m. EDT but you don't want to miss the performance by the first ever Twitter band the Shibbering Cheetos

In addition to all the pawty planning (after all I spend HOURS developing my DJ play list on Blip), mom is making last minute preparations for her trip to BarkWorld Expo. BarkWorld starts next Friday, August 20 and runs through Sunday in Atlanta, Georgia.

She is riding with Boris Kitty's Human2 in this really cool GMC Terrain. GMC is one of the event sponsors. PETCO is also a sponsor and there are a bunch of others.
You can imagine Boris and me riding in the car. We are going to BarkWorld virtually with our humans and will be tweeting all about them. Mom has been working with Human2 on some decorations for their GMC Terrain which is part of the Bark and Ride program. There are 3 other Terrains coming from all over with Anipals and their humans converging for the ultimate pet social media live event in Atlanta! Each Terrain is supposed to have a Team name and we are the Jedi Mind Games Team or Team Jedi for short. With my name and Boris' sci fi expertise (and he is a Jedi and a wiz with the Litesaber), the team name really fits!

And now it's time to join the weekly hop! Mom and I really enjoy all the new friends we have made through this wonderful blog hop!
