After a few hairy moments battling with the Internet connection (lifeblood to any blogger and my primary reason for being here... oh yes, apart from the minor matter of a presentation) we're online and ready to go!
We're expecting the first early delegates to show up at any moment, even though registration doesn't officially start until 11am. The earlier the better for those going on the first visit to a shelter, as it'll be busy busy all day with visits and workshops.
But I'm not going to repeat everything I've said here. I'm going to get on with enjoying the show and bringing supporters and anyone else whose interest is animal welfare all the news I can!
