Who has the power to shut down a bridge? Not us! But we rode the coat tails (and dog tails) of Animal Friends and hung out on the Roberto Clemente Bridge at their Bark n’At dog event which had a costume parade, dog games and a live band.  Our guests, Jim Krenn & Shannon Tremblay of Animal Friends, international fashion/travel blogger Sydney Carver and John and Krissy Knight all join us and answer our question of the week… “If you were a dog, what would you prefer: head scratch, belly rub or butt scratch?”

LISTEN to the Podcast show right here below:

YaJagoff! Podcast -  Show Notes: Episode Music: This, That & The Other Thing (Recorded Live on the Bridge)

01:30     Just like that, we are on the Roberto Clemente Bridge on one of the best weather nights all summer so far.  Rachael Rennebeck from Total Sports Enterprises is this week’s Guest Co-host because the conversation is going to involve “fashion” and John clearly knows NOTHING about it!

18:46    Sydney Carver is an internationally known fashion, food and travel blogger based in Pittsburgh.  Through her blog SummerWind41490.com, she has become a huge social media influencer. So, does that mean she can’t hang out in a ball cap and sweat pants on vacation?  How does Pittsburgh stack up as far as fashion?  And, if she were a dog, would she want pet on the head, belly or tail?

34:03    John Knight, who write the “What Aggravates Me” blog every Saturday on YaJagoff.com stops with his wife to talk about why he’s never getting a dog.

Ok... we didn’t REALLY eat out of the Stanley Cup with Milena or any of our other guests. But we had a great time talking about what we WOULD eat out of it if we could. Milena has started her Totally Fit Mama brand and app, Amanda McKendree has a big softball tourney coming up in Johnstown and she wants your team.  Then, this week’s guest co-host, comedian Joe Bartnick, teams up with John’s son, Collin, to talk Pittsburgh comedy and the bloody nose Joe got the first time he and Collin met to play hockey.
