Wow why is it so hot today, I think I need to get me a new pool to have a soak in, I chewed the last one so maybe the staff will buy me a new one.I hope that you are all coping with the heat if if is hot in your part of the world.

It is nearly time to start getting organised for the next #pawpawty which starts on the 11th July. the first thing you need to do is vote for the #pawpawty theme. Just use the voting buttons on the right to select your favourite theme. I have a feeling that we will get a lot of requests for a beach style pawty as it is so darn hot (in the UK at least).

I will be starting to collect all of the donations over the next few days, so if you want to donate a pwize please let me know.

I have been busy catching up on my sleep since the #pawpawty and also making sure that all the pwizes are on their way to all you lucky winners.

Just a quick update to say a very big thank you to all of the wonderful anipals who helped make this pawpawty one of the best ever despite some pretty major technical difficulties. I have not fully resolved the problem with tweetgrid, but I will make sure that we know the situation before the next pawpawty. Thanks to all of you who tried to make things work by setting up new accounts, and registering on friendfeed. Hopefully we will not have to do this too much in the future, but it is good to know that we have a back up if twitter breaks again.

Well you all did me proud with the outfits that you were wearing, but I can honestly say that I have never seen so much bad big hair or such a weird and wonderful selection of clothes, did people really wear that stuff? Yep some our silly humans did.

The DJ's did us proud with the great selection of tunes, a big thanks out to @flothecat, @dobie_evgeni, @hotMBC, @Hanseebundee, @cosmohavanese, @inigoflufflebum, @orangegene, @Chevy_boo, @Totallylamont, @Theotigsy, @Jorton, @Flicka47, @Morriscat, @Pandafur, @BunnyJeanCook, @Rustythecat, an extra special thanks to @fergusthedog for arranging the DJ schedule, he is a star for helping organise this part of the #pawpawty. If you would like to volunteer for a DJ slot at the next #Pawpawty please contact @fergusthedog.

Thank you so much to all you for the great pwize donations all of the details of the individual donors and donations made are on my website, and they will stay on there for the next week or so until we start the July #PawPawty planning process. I have already started to receive donations for the next pawty so once again a huge thanks to all of you for your support.

The huge number of contests we have is only possible with the help of the great quizmasters, so a big woof to my pals @emmythecat, @sylviedog, @mishakidd, @brewskiebutt, @cosmohavanese. You guys are the best, thank you for all your help.

As you all know we were helping support the angelsforanimal shelter this month and thanks to all of your donations, we exceeded the target at the PawPawty. And the great news is that if you did not get a chance to you can still donate until the end of this month, so if you have any pocket money left over please consider a small donation, every little helps anipals who are not as fortunate as we all are.

All of the pwizes should be in the post very soon if they are not already on their way to you, if you want to feature on future blogs, please remember to take a photo with your pwize let me know so and I can post a special pwize winners selection before the next #PawPawty.

For the first time ever we had our own security team led by Captain @snick_the_dog, the guys kept any undesirables out by putting the bitey on any spammers who tried to gate crash the event. They also helped keep us anipals in line, you know how it is sometimes, one to many barkeritas or niptinis. Read their fantastic report. A big thanks to @shawneeshep, @samsoncatt, @indy tiger, @GD_kenworth for all the peace keeping they did. And if you want to protect and serve then please contact @snick_the_dog or @Shawneeshep

New Events
We tried a new event at this #PawPawty a quiz called a #pawbquiz which lasted just over an hour and featured questions about cocktails, famous anipals, and the 1980's from @joecassels it was great fun and we will try to see if we can a quiz again at future pawties.

Next PawPawty
I can't wait for the next pawpawty, which is is on the 11th & 12th July, so make sure you put the dates in your diary. If you would like to suggest a theme please post a comment on this post and I will arrange a poll in early July.

If you would like to volunteer to be a quizmaster or a donate a pwize please e-mail me at

Well I guess it all began in the Little House on the Prarie I was hanging out with the Dukes of Hazzard having a Hart to Hart with Laverne and Shirley, when Cagney and Lacey flew in on Airwolf. They said they had been to St Elsewhere because they had a case of the Hill Street Blues which Quincy ME was investigating. He was helping Magnum PI and he had to take a Taxi through the Knight Rider to Knots Landing where they cruised across the Baywatch on the Love Boat, to Fantasy Island. They found The Incredible Hulk popping up the bar Cheers he said as he raised his glass, lets toast Mork and Mindy and wish them Happy Days, Fame and lets hope that they will be Married with Children soon. He said that The Golden Girls had been doing a little Moonlighting trying some Different Strokes for 60 Minutes, but they had to take a Quantum Leap back to Dallas where Rosanne had Growing Pains . It was all another case of Murder She Wrote looking back at The Wonder Years that we call the 80’s.

And here is is your guide to the 80's #Pawpawty


Club Tropicana of course where the drinks are free, fun and sunshine there's enough for everyone. We will have all the usual drinkies and Nom Nom's please feel free to bring some of your favourite 80's food along to enjoy. Just leave the food in the banqueting hall when you arrive.

We have the MTV video wall room where you can check out all your favourite 80's stars, they are all coming to the pawty, and the resident DJ's will take care of playing all the hits that we all remember oh so well.

As usual there is a room for the young 'uns so they can stay out of trouble and we will be serving non alcoholic cocktails at the kiddies paddling pools, just make sure you youngsters are wearing your life jackets if you go in the pools for a dip, we don't want to have to call the Baywatch boys & girls out!!


What a lot of great pwizes we have to give away, this has to be the best pwize list ever we have so many to get through. Make sure you have a look at the schedule so that you can be there on time to enter for the pwizes you want a chance of winning.

Some competitions have just one winner, but there are a few where there is more than one chance to win so please have a go, you never know your luck. We will also have a slight change on some of the competitions to make sure that everyone is in with a chance of winning, so instead of fastest paw wins it may be the 2nd, 3rd, even 4th or 5th anipal to get the correct answer who wins. So you all have a chance.

The competitions usually direct you to a blog or a site where you can find the answer to the question posed by the quizmaster, and you need to DM the answer to who ever the quizmaster is. ( details of quiz masters will be posted soon, you just need to make sure you are following them so you can DM them, it won't work if you are not following them!!)

Some competitions may be for kittehs or doggies only, if you enter and win a competition you will win the pwize stated, so listen out for the quizmaster's instructions.

The only exception to the above rule will be where the pwize stated cannot be posted to different countries ( those customs people sometimes sniff out the plague ratsies or the doggie treats ). So there may be occasions when you win an alternative pwize, but don't worry all the pwizes are great.


We have a new exciting competition for the 80's #pawpawty it is an hour long quiz hosted by the great guy @joecassels who runs the weekly pubquizes on twitter. Now then this is a bit different to the other competitions.

The first thing to note is that @frugaldougal will be giving away 6 pwizes for the 6 winners of the quiz.

A pub quiz is a traditional British event where friends meet up in a team and try to answer qusetions set by the quizmaster. To make it easier on twitter the maximum number in a team is two anipals. ( you can enter on your own but it is much more fun playing along with someone else).

So how it is gonna work is that Joe will have three rounds of ten questions so that is 30 questions all together that you need to answer. Joe will be tweeting the questions and he has set up a special website where you need to put the answers in (don't worry it is easy). The site is already set up.

What you need to do before the quiz starts is to decide on your team name and go to the #pawbquiz and enter your team name and one of your team's twitter name. Only one anipal needs to enter the answers so decide who is gonna do that and register their details.

Then make sure you are following @joecassels cause he will be tweeting the questions, he will use the hashtag #pawbquiz so you can search for this to make sure you get all the questions. You can DM with your team member to agree on the answers and then you enter the answers on the #pawbquiz site.

You should answer the questions without searching on the tinterweb for the answers as it is meant to be a test of your anipal knowledge not your google search skills, but we will just have to trust each other on that one!!

Joe will announce the start and end of each round and the scores will be displayed at the end of each round, with all the answers displayed at the end of the quiz.

Remember it is all just a bit of fun, and there may even be spot pwizes for the most funny answers so please join in and have a go. If you need help there are some great anipals who play every week who can help. Just ask @laddiethemutt, @poppy_dog, @emmythecat, @frugaldougal or @morriscat .


Please remember that while we are all having so much fun we have the #pawpawty every month to raise funds for an anipal charity and this month we are helping to raise funds for @Romeothecat 's monthly FURpower challenge which this month is helping @angelsforanimal you can donate here. Please remember that every little helps, so if you have some pawmoney left over please donate what you can spare.

halp halp halp

If you are new to the #pawpawty please ask an anipal we can tell you how it all works and if you are really stuck then you can visit @frugaldougal 's site where you can see all the pwizes we have on offer as well as get some hints and tips to help you enjoy the #pawpawty.


One thing to note is that because the #pawpawty usually gets to be a trending topic we do attract some of the spammers who try to hop in on all trending topics. They have nothing to do with the #pawpawty and the best advice I can give is to report them by sending a DM to @spam with the spammers twitter ID and then block them, Twitter does take care of them eventually so try not to engage in any tweets with them as that will only get you upset and give them more publicity.


In the event that twitter fails ( search stops working for some reason, this has happened once before ) we will move on to friendfeed where there is a group set up called #pawpawty, this is a closed group that you have to ask to subscribe to ( keeps spammers out). I am not quite sure what we will be able to continue with on friendfeed as it is new to me, but at least we will be able to communicate with each other. So make sure you have a friendfeed account and that you are part of the #pawpawty group so you can still join in the fun!

Phew I think that is everything apart from my huge heartfelt thanks to all of you for playing along with the #pawpawty, and for all of your very very generous donations of pwizes and your most important gift your time.

It's gonna be a good one I can feel it in my leather 80's gear.

See you all very very soon

I love my morning walk to smelly field, it is called smelly field because sometimes there are sheep in the field and they leave stinky poo, but they are not in the field at the moment which means I can get up close and personal with the wabbits. They really do know how to breed, there are hundreds of them. They usually manage to run away before I manage to get a photo never mind any chance of catching one of them!!

Look what I saw on my walk this morning
there are lots of cheeky rabbits and also I
managed to chase this pheasant they can only fly for 17 seconds apparently, if only I could see which way they fly I am sure I could catch them.

The baby rabbits are really funny because they stay really still and then when you take your eye off them for a split second they hop down the rabbit hole. I try to follow them but I get stuck!!!

The bumble bees really love this blue flower I can hear them all buzzing on it and could watch them for hours. They are always very busy and collect lots of pollen to make into yummy hunny.

I think summer is here at last.
I promised you some special pwizes for the June #PawPawty, well here is a very special one. How would you like to star alongside our very own talented lady @Midgethemutt in a special #pawpawty comic? Midge will create a personalised comic strip and you could be the star!!

How to Enter
It is simple all you have to do is tell us a funny anipal joke. We need you to leave your Jokes ( and yes you can enter as many times as you like from now until the end of the #Pawpawty on the 14th June) on the Guest Book at Midge's site. Please start the joke with the word JOKE to help Midge spot them as she is going to create a special page on her site so that you can all see the jokes submitted by your anipals.

When we have finished the #Pawpawty fun and games Midge will select the winning joke and will get to work designing the customised comic. It will take up to a month for the comic to be created, but if you have a look at Midge's comics you will see that it will be well worth the wait.

So what are you all waiting fur??

Frugal Dougal
