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 have a few extra special prizes which we will be revealing very soon so keep your eyes peeled!
We are very excited to announce that we will be hosting a Dogs Dinner virtual event on twitter to help raise funds for Hounds for Heroes. As some of you may know we have been hosting PawPawty events on twitter for the past few years raising over £45,000 for various animal related charities all over the world. Well when I say we I mean my dog @frugaldougal who came up with the original idea many moons ago, he usually hosts the PawPawty events so we will be taking direction from him on how to make the events we have planned go with a bang! AND of course he will be making an appearance or two at the events so he can say hello to all of his old pals, and perhaps make some new ones too. Dougal has been away from the PawPawty scene on twitter for the past 6 months, but while there is still life in the old dog we felt that he was up to helping us host the two mini events which are planned for the 14th and 15th September. You can find details of the events as well as your own virtual invite here so please make sure you RSVP so we can make enough Barkeritas and Niptinis! As we mentioned we are helping raise funds for Hounds for Heroes and we have a target of rising £1000 from the two events, even if you cannot attend the virtual event you can donate here on our Hounds for Heroes PawPawty Page. We will have the usual competitions with some great prizes up for grabs and we will publish details of the quiz schedule in the next week or so ( if any other companies or individuals want to get involved by offering a prize for the event then please get in touch with @dougalsden on twitter) At the moment we are not sure if we have enough time to get all of the Barktenders, Quizmasters, DJ's and PawPawty Security orgainsed in time but if anyone wants to volunteer for duty then please contact @dougalsden even if you have not taken part in a virtual PawPawty before we have lots of experience and can hold your paw if you need some help. For those of you who have never been to a virtual party on twitter well its a bit like being at a real party with people who are passionate about animals and raising money for animal related charities except you are all sitting in the comfort of your own home while all the action takes place on twitter so even if you are on your own on the 14th and 15th September you can still join in the fun! All you need to so is put the dates of the 14th and 15th September in your diary and pop on line on twitter between 6pm and 1am on both days and search for the hashtag #dogsdinner and you will be able to join in the fun and games. Remember to check back on our blog where we will be posting details of the great prizes we have on offer as well as more details about the events themselves.
