Just a quick update about our Dogs Dinner event which we held last Friday. So far we have raised £392 for the charity Hounds For Heroes so a huge thank you goes out to everyone who made a donation. We had great fun at the virtual twitter event, it was great to say hello to some new friends who were joining in the fun on twitter for the 1st time, and of course @frugaldougal loved saying a big hello to all of his #pawpawty pals. Thanks also goes out to all of the generous people who donated a prize for the pawty, we believe that all of the prizes are now on their way to the lucky recipients. We posted ours out earlier this week, and we know that the UK winners have received theirs already. A huge thank you to all of our friends from all over the world who came together at short notice to help out so Hai Paw to all the barktenders and DJ's and schedule oeganisers, as always we could not do any of this without your help. The donations page is still open so if you have any spare pennies you can always help support Hound for Heroes on the donation page. We are busy in the background updating the PawPawty website where you can see all of the charities we have helped over the past three years. As soon as it is up and running we will let you know the new schedule of #pawpawy events.

We have been a bit behind at getting organised for our Dogs Dinner Events but hopefully we will have everything ready in time! The 1st Event is on Friday 14th September from 6pm in the evening until 1am in the early hours of the 15th and as you know it will all take place on twitter its a kind of mini #pawpawty. You can come along and join in the fun and games, it will be full of crazy cat ladies and mad dog mums and I expect a few dog dads as well. Remember your pets are most welcome to join in the fun so if you doggie or cat is on twitter then they can join in the tweeting as well. We will be fundraising and asking for donations for Hounds for Heroes at the event so please check the back of the sofa or raid your piggy bank and donate if you can to our very worthy cause. As well as tweeting with some great pals you can also enter the various competitions we will be hosting. In order to enter you will need to be following @dougalsden who will be doing the quizzes and they will usually be in the form of a question with a link to a website so you have follow the link to find the answer and then DM (direct message the answer to @dougalsden). Here is a rundown of the Prizes on offer so far with the approximate times we will be tweeting the questions! You don't have to donate to be in with a chance of winning a prize. If you would like to offer a prize at the event please get in touch with woof (at) dougalsden.co.uk with details of the prize you have on offer, or contact @frugaldougal or @dougalsden via twitter we will ask the question, select the winner and let you have details so you can send the prize out to the lucky recipient.

We are so pleased to announce that we have the latest chic design from the lovely Hem and Boo now available. The Pink Bones dog collars and leads are sure to be a firm favourite with all you lovers of all things girlie!As you can see they are made from pink webbing with a black woven ribbon on one side which has pink bones in different sizes together with pink, purple and orange paw prints, they really do look very cute. They are available in three sizes so you are sure to find a size that fits your pooch. What's great is that they still look very girlie and with the bright pink webbing on one side they will be brighten up the dull days of autumn and the black ribbon on the other side means that and muddy splashes will not show up too much. Remember you can pop them in the washing machine if they get too muddy but we recommend popping them inside a pillowcase just in case they get tangled inside your washing machine. They are available as individual items or if you prefer to be fully co ordinated then why not treat your pooch to a lovely new collar and lead. The Hem and Boo range are colourful, cute and above all affordable so take a look at the full range at Dougal's Den.
