Hey mai pals we have some exciting news which is a secret, we can't tell you until Monday, but it involves my pals at @furminator_inc who have been supporting the #PawPawty events since we started earlier this year.
Well mai pals it is almost time for another PawPawty, this month on the 21st and 22nd November we will be supporting Sunny Harbour Cat and Kitten Rescue from Scotland. If you want to see how I picked the charity earlier today then have a look at the YouTube Video.
We also have a very special event at the Pawty, the wedding of @Poppy_Dog and @Hanseebundee, wedding preparations are well underway and we are all so excited to be having what I think is the first twitter anipal wedding at one of our PawPawty events.
@buttons_kitty - How about some treats from London? Every-fur loves noms

@hamishthecat - ohhhh!!! Let me think on that one, though mummy immediately says "gentleman's relish." blech. I don't like that stuff

@winecountrydog - some ale & mince pie fur mum, i think mum'd be easier to handle on walkies. BOL
@theotigsy - Us too! We want a Dougal-box too!! -T&T
What a great list of pwizes, I will do my best to get pwizes like this sorted out for some #PawPawty events although I think that Dougal in a Box might be a bit difficult to organise.
Thanks for all the ideas mai pals & remember it is not long until the next #PawPawty on the 21st November.
Yep thats right mai pals, it is time to get nominating for the recipient of the November PawPawty funds.
I did receive some Nominations but due to some technical problems with a few of our Mac's we do not have access to any nominations that were made in the last month( we lost them all!!). So if you want your favourite shelter or charity to be in with a chance of being selected then here is what you need to do.
All you have to do is leave a comment against this post giving the name and if possible a link to the charity or shelter that you want to nominate, if you have time why not tell us all why you think they should be the PawPawty recipient.
We will then arrange for a televised (now that the staff have worked out how to do You Tube) draw to take place where the recipient will be selected by yours truly. We thought this was a better way of selecting the charity as we do not want anyone to get repetitive paw injury from having to vote ( like we did in September).
You have until the 6th of November to nominate, and the draw will take place over the weekend of the 7th- 8th November.
Please remember that we like to support smaller charities who do not have a massive advertising/marketing budgets or hundreds of thousands of people already supporting them.
So what are you waiting for get busy with the paws.
Well we changed most of the clocks at home because it is now officially Autumn, and outside the leaves tell the same tale. Spotted these leaves this morning some of them still green and clinging to the branches, my bet is they won't be there for long!!
Have a great Monday
A freshly ploughed field, all ready for some barley to be planted. We cannot believe that it is this time of year again. Makes us glad to have seasons so we can appreciate the changes throughout the year. It is also easier for me to spot the rabbits in fields like this even if I cannot catch them. Hope you all have a thoughtful Thursday and appreciate what you have today.
Me and Scooby liked these cows a lot more, can you see how they were coming over to have a look at us. We had the good fortune to be on the other side of a little river so that kept those inquisitive cows on the other side on the river bank.
We got to the canal at the bottom of the farm and my Brofur Scooby decided to do some swimming, that's Pip the old lady farm dog next to him. Pip rounds up the cows, and I think she would like to round up me and Scooby as well but we keep her on her paws, chasing two Cairn Terrors round the fields!
Look at Scooby he got the stick, he loves swimming, I had a little swim myself boy was that water cold!
We had a lovely weekend at the Farm it is a beautiful place to visit and we loves to go and see our Anipal friends and of course our Human friends. We all had a lovely weekend, playing in the sun and enjoying time with out special friends.
Hope you like the Photos

As you know I am not in the habit of making pawsonal appeals. However when a friend told me about a challenge that her doggie Bandit took part in I could not resist asking my anipals for a little help.
As you know we always like to support charities from around the world, usually the charity is picked from random from the submissions I receive from all my anipals. This month I want to try a different approach and for this I need your help. I have had quite a few nominations this month and what you need to do is vote for the charity that you want to be the recipient of the funds that we raise at the #Pawpawty.
If you want to find out more about the charities nominated by your anipals then have a look at the information below.
