Mai pals thank you all so much for your support of the special Westminster Dog's Show PawPawty last night. It was a 1st for us doing a Tweet-A-Long so we were all so pleased so many of you managed to make it.

Special thanks to the Shibbering Cheetos for kicking off in style and getting us all in the mood to watch the show. I think we have a reporter in the making with Cosmohavanese who managed to get some exclusive photos and he was a great commentator telling all of us who could not watch exactly what was happening!

We had a few little competitions throughout the event so thanks to prize sponsors @i_am_fuzzy, @mizzbassie, @barkworldexpo, @maggieTkat and @pedigreeUS.

We had some fun with some of our own competitions for Best of Pictures and in case you missed it here were the winners.

Mai Pals I do hope you can join us tomorrow night between 7pm and Midnight EasternTime when we will be having a Tweet-A-Long viewing pawty for the Westminster Dog Show.  We have lots of fun and games and prizes to be won as we will be having out very own best of competitions.

We know that lots of you will be watching the show live today and tomorrow and we are very excited to be having our Tweet-A-Long during the The Sporting, Working, Terrier, and Best In Show competition which will be televised live Tuesday on USA Network from 8-11 PM ET.

Thanks to PedigreeUS we will also be raising funds at this event for Save a Pet Illinois and for every one we see tweet with the hashtag #WKCpawpawty Pedigree will donate 1$ to Save A Pet, so at this event we don't need you to donate anything more than a tweet! So while we are watching all of those lovely pure breed pooches we will also be helping some of the less fortunate anipals who are in a shelter still waiting to find their forever homes.

We will kick off the event an hour before the televised show starts so that we can all be sitting comfortably waiting for the event and finish an hour after so that we can have some fun tweeting the about the show.

The famous Shibbering Cheetos twitter band will be entertaining us for the 1st hour so be sure to pop in and have a dance before we settle down for the viewing pawty!

We will be running a few competitions at the event and the Quiz Schedule will be published on the PawPawty site later today. You can also be in with a chance of winning a great Pedigree Dog's Rule pwize by entering a picture of your furry friends in one of our categories below so get your pictures ready and be sure to tweet a link to your pic when we when we ask for the pictures!

We are also having a potluck TV dinner so be sure to post pics of what you and your pooch or kitteh are munching as you Watch-A-Long, there might even be a pwize for the best Nom Nom Nom Nom's!!

Well mai pals it is so close to Valentines day that we thought we simply must have a love theme for this month's event. So mai pal @javathecat suggested Love is in the Air, which is a great theme for a very special event.

I know that a lot of you have been very concerned about how the animals in Australia have been coping with the awful flooding and cyclone and now bush fires so I wanted us to be able to find a way that we could help one of the shelters over in Australia. So I had a chat with mai pal @pepismartdog and he told me that the Animal Welfare League in Queensland would be a great organisation for us to support as they have been working so hard over the past few weeks to try to help all of the animals caught up in the floods.You can read more about how they have been helping anipals over the past few weeks here.

So at the Love is in the Air #pawpawty we will be raising funds for @AWLQ, but that is only half the story because thanks to our pals @pedigreeUS we are able to help out TWO shelters this month!!

This month's shelter drawn at random is Save A Pet  GraySlake, Illinois, a great organisation who are currently responsible for the over 500 animals who may have been the subject of abuse, neglect, loss or relinquishment.  On a daily basis, Save-A-Pet faces two basic challenges rescue and education. The rescue cycle includes the process and costs of intake, vaccinations, surgeries (i.e., spay/neuter), prescription food, preventative medications, chronic illness medications (i.e., for FIV, heart murmurs, allergies, IBD, arthritis, etc.), and the emotional healing of the residents. The educational cycle includes the process and costs of rehabilitating the residents before and after adoption, as well as the costs for training adopters in preventative care and solving behavioral problems. You can read more about this great organisation on their site.

Thanks to the guys at @pedigreeUS every donation made to the Australian anipals at the #pawpawty will be matched by Pedigree who will donate the equivalent funds to Save A Pet.

Yep that's right for every $1 donated at the #pawpawty another $1 will be donated to  Save A Pet  GraySlake, Illinois.

Westminster Viewing Pawty
As if that is not enough  @pedigreeUS  will also donate an extra dollar to Save A Pet  for every anipal/person who attends an extra special event which will be held on the 15th Feb which is a special viewing / watch along party for those of you who will be tuning into the Westminster Dog Show. You can find out more about the Westminster Viewing Pawty here and we will post more details over the next few days!

So there really is a lot of Love in the Air this month, just imagine how much difference we can make to the anipals who need help in two countries.
