An On-Going Collection of Pawpawty Avs

UPDATE ~ I decide it would be easier for folks to see if  I moved this post from January to the top. So from time to time, I'll bring it forward.

I decided it would be fun to save all the pawpawty avs in on place. So check back from time to time to see what's been added.

 First is my regular av that I use for "everyday" ~

My Dance Hall Girl from Dudefest Jan 16-17th 2010 
 She was over at the Cookie Saloon!

Of course, this was my real twitter #dudefest av !
Groucho, the ultimate Dude!

     ...snicker...This is so Me!                                                        My Av for the Viva Wag Vegas Pawpawty  ~ Jan 22-23rd 2010


Well, I just had to keep my Wag Vegas av, but first on Monday the 1st I added a Rusty twibbon, and then on Tuesday a Shorty Team Anipal twibbon that @BrewskieButt put together, and then I turned it all orange on the 3rd with the Leukemia Twibbon. So, since I could no longer stand up from all the weight of the Twibbons for the #shortypawpawty on Thursday the 4th I did this!..snicker...

I think I'm gonna have to use this one again the night of the Shorty awards when our own BZTAT, FrugalDougal's mom, and YodatheDog's mom all meet in NewYork to collect their awards!!

Here's my Valentine's Day avs!

This is the one I used during the week before and to start the #TeddyOlympics on Feb 13th & 14th ~

This one was for the RudyTKat pawty on Feb 13th, and Valentine's Day itself!

This one is for the 2010 Anipal Winter Olympic Games ~ February 20th and 21st!

Oh, March was such fun!

The first pawty of the month was @BorisKitty's #SciFiPawty.
We all started early trying on different avs.

This was my first one, Muttley Pass anyone? And for anyone that didn't get a chance to see it, or wants another Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster,  here's the link to The Cookie Cafe at the End of the Universe

And for the pawty on March 13th, I just had to have this one. While LOTR is technically fantasy more than SciFi, my favorite character of all time is Eowyn, the White Lady of Rohan. So I just had to be her! 
Next we all got dressed for St Patrick's Day.
 And since the following weekend was the First Anniversary of the Pawpawties, many of us stayed green all week long! 

A wee little Leprechaun dog!

This is my St Paw's Day av for the 1st Anniversary St Paw's Day #pawpawty on March 20-21st. It is so hard to believe it's been a year, but it has been a great year, and I hope we have many more just like it!

April 2010

PEEP!...snicker...(Easter was April 4th)

On April 10 @Niqqi and @SmokeyPoodle put together the #Area51 Adventure. We were all on a rescue mission to rescue Dogga.Who it turns out was actually Laika, the Russian dog to first orbit the Earth. Seems her capsule was recovered by aliens! But in some weird time warp thing, the aliens crashed near Area51 almost 50 years later!
All the anipals were divided into teams to rescue Dogga. I was on the stealthteam and we had an invisibilty cloak and the ability to travel thru time.So I had a bunch of different avs I was going to use...until the aliens knocked out my power and I could only add a few more tweets from my phone. Dogga was rescued, and everyone had a great time!
Next on the 17th and 18th was #carniepawty. Put together by @BadAndy_KityKat to celebrate April anipal birthdays. If you haven't already gone to Andy's blog for the pawty it is a must see!
Our official pawpawty on the 24th and 25th this month was #chickfest. I just couldn't resist coming as the hottest chick ever   ~  Mrs. Peel!
May 2010

First pawty in May was a Cinco da Mayo celebration for @kittehboi's sister Chilipepper's Birthday. It was a very festive #chilipawty!
Next was the Pajama Pawty on the 14th. it was put on by BarkWorld Expo in celebration of their up-coming Pet Blogger's conference in Atlanta this summer. The shelter #bwpjpawty helped was A Chance for Bliss
Then our "official" pawpawty was themed Paw's Kitchen and was held on the 22nd and 23rd. Everyone came dressed as chef's or food. Some of the "food" anipals got nibbled on! Our charity was North West English Springer Spaniel Rescue in the UK

Keep checking back to see next months avs!

Thank You,Thank You, Thank You Kolo Martin!

As many of you know Kolo Martin had another animal adoption drawing. This time it was to adopt an animal at the Amazon World Zoo Park on the Isle of Wright where Kolo lives.

Guess what? I won!! I'm so excited! Now I get to pick an animal to adopt! I wanted this one...

But Kolo assures me that they don't have any Aliens, Alien Baboons,or even Baboons because they are just a small zoo with a little over 200 animals.

So I have decided on a little more convention type of animal, a turtle!

Thanks to Kolo, I'll get an adoption certificate and a newsletter from the Zoo. This is another wonderful way to help animals, and I hope you all enter Kolo's next contest for a chance to adopt an animal!
Big HUGS to you Kolo! Thanks again!

An Out of This World Pawty!

STARDATE 20100313

What a super time everybody had this past weekend at the #SciFiPawty! There were aliens, time travelers and fantasy creatures of all sorts! @CokietheCat did this wonderful poster!

And that was just some of the Star Wars contingent!

There was trouble with tribbles, and @morriscat cooked green alien chicken with his phaser for us. Then there was @ZackRabbit's out of this world cooking show, and his wonderful Adventure with the @Legendofneil(It probably isn't showing, but at Twitpic this is animated! Zack says it's magic! Go here to see it in action!)


Boris had a costume contest for all of the out of this world pictures that folks did of themselves. If you go here you can see the winners and all the entries! Everyone of them was a winner in my book, and I don't know how Boris's Human2 ever decided !

And best of all, all the aliens, star creatures, fantasy visitors, and voyagers helped to raise over $1025. for Boris's shelter charity, the Animal Rescue League of Berk's County!

I hope Boris can be talked into doing another #SciFiPawty again, as it was a total Blast, and I'm sure everyone who came had a fantastic time.

Ola Kala! The Furry Friend Award

 Pirulo Furry has given me an Award ! The Ola Kala award is given to furry friends that do or have done things to help make the world a better place.

Ola Kala mean's "everything's good" in Greek.  And for this award the first thing you do is write about three things you do to make the world a better place. They don't have to be really big things, like my first thing is that I sleep curled up in the crook of mom's knees to help keep her warm at night! Remember it's the little things that count!

The second would be that (as you probably already know) I love helping at the Pawpawties. Of course, who wouldn't? I'm so proud to be friends with all the great anipals that take part and help to make the the pawpawties such a great success everytime!

Number three would be that we help at our local shelter. We get little toys for the kitties at the North County Humane Society for just about every holiday, and sometimes mom takes them cat food or litter because they need that a lot. Sometimes mom stops by just to play with the kitties!

The second part of this award is to pass it on to five or more furry friends that have done something to make the world a better place. So, my five choices for this award are

1~ @marleyterrier at the Marley and Lola Border Terrierist Blog

2 ~ @Aska_Alaska at the Aska Rabbit Blog

3 ~@CokietheCat at the Hollywood Insider Blog

4 ~ @babypatches at Confessions of the Plume Blog

5 ~@mattiedog at MattieDog: A Little Dog Making a Big Impact in This World Blog

Well,there you have it. Now I'm going to go figure out how to put this award in my sidebar. Oh, really interesting trivia(well to me anyway).Piru chose to use a picture of EL Morro for the award. Which is a historical fort in San Juan, Puerto Rico where he lives. You can read about it at his blog. Turns out I have my own "El Morro" near where I live. It is the giant "rock" that sits at the edge of the harbor in Morro Bay California.

A view from the air

You see lots of these little guys as well as sea lions, harbor seals, and marine birds

This is a very cool Video I found of the US Coast Guard Station in Morro Bay operating during winter storms

And what set of pictures of the California Coast would be complete without a sunset?
Well, there you have it. Thanks again to Pirulo Furry for giving me this award, and I hope all my nominees have as much fun doing it as I have had.
