We were directly across from a pug rescue this year at AAPS this year. We had some good fun laughing about some of the things BP said. One thing about him being there, he helped the rescue people connect, because no matter what breed they had, they were united in their horror over what he was saying.

So I did end up going to it. BP wasn't soooo bad, I suppose. When he did mention the carrying dogs thing he made some valid points like 'the dog is getting overheated sitting on your lap with your arms wrapped around it' (it was fairly warm even for me in there) and 'that dogs need to be able to experience life, small or not'. He even talked about the importance of socialization and playtime/mental stimulation. But by the end soooo many people were yanking their dogs around like he taught them to do. >.< There was no swearing and I didn't hear too much that would keep me up at night. But I didn't hear what he was telling people one-on-one though.

A lot of people were there hoping for easy-fixes for their dogs.

Sam had a blast though and he was sooooo well behaved. He didn't drool on anyone except for me. And there was only one mis-behaved dog that I saw (two if you count the toy chi that the woman wouldn't put on the ground at all) and they left pretty quickly.

I didn't get to see the agility show because my ride (my dad) said that I had spent enough time there. :P

Besides that, I got lots of free samples, signed an anti-BSL petition, learned that we might get another dog park and found out that Sam is a champ in crowds. :3

He says carrying dogs is bad even if its cold out. It will make your dog aggressive, fearful, dominant, and a whole bunch of other things. Oh and impede training..

Glad he had toned it down a bit. Maybe havign people publicly tell him off made an impression.

I understand that, but he didn't say any of that, at least not on the stage.

Again I have no clue what he said one-on-one but I didn't hear him swearing or anything whenever I walked by. When he asked one woman to put her dog down, he pointed out that no one with great danes (there were some lovely GDs there <3), goldens or rotties had their dogs on their laps a lot of people that weren't too impressed with him suddenly had their larger-breed dogs on their laps. :P

Oh and he did steal candy from a kid, who turned out to be my sister's friend.

No reply yet from the Expo people about BP - either they don't care much or they've just been busy.

Glad you had a good time! Sam sounds like he was a total star, what a good boy.

So have you actually gone?

No one asked what it was, just if anyone was attending.

Your siggy promotes a psychologist. If that is indeed you it looks terrible for your business posting irrelevant posts and lying on a dog forum.
