#Pawties and Events are where anipals and humans get together for a Twitterin’ good time. In their tweets they use an introductory hashtag (#) so everyone who wants to join in the fun can easily find them by searching Twitter for #(fill in the blank) pawty or #(event name). #Pawties and Events is where you will find out about the #Pawties taking place on Twitter and where I will point you to the official The Anipal Times #Pawty & Events Calendar. Remember to check out the calendar so that you can find the dates and times to mix and mingle with anipals. Now, let’s read about some of the #pawties and events that happened by the deadline for this article (oh, and if you don’t know how to #pawty, don’t worry I got you covered—just read this).
Well anipals, first we at @AnipalTimes want to wish you all a happy Earth Day. Earth Day is a day were some seriously cool events are held in order to increase awareness and appreciation of the earth. I hope you got out and took part in an event, whether it was to help plant trees, clean a street median or perhaps just stroll around and take in the beauty that is the earth—be kind to her and reduce, reuse and recycle. Oh, and hey, when you are done reading @AnipalTimes please place it in the proper recycle bin—oh wait, it’s an electronic paper. Well, recycle by forwarding it to a friend—that will be good for them and good for us. So, happy Earth Day and #pawty on anipals!
#TillmanTV On Saturday, 21 April 2012, nearly every anipal on Twitter turned out to support our buddy, Tillman (@TillmanSkates), in his season finale #TillmanTV #pawty. #TillmanTV #pawties were some of the most fun and interactive events an animal, in this case Tillman, held using social media. Anipals had a great time, hanging out with @TillmanSkates and his buddies and watched the last, for this season anyway, episode of Who Let the Dogs Out on television, while tweeting with viewers all over the globe. The last show was the highlight of the season, as we watched @TillmanSkates and his pals travel across the USA looking for “the most talented dog in America,” to join them on their adventures. Anipals watched and joined @TillmanSkates in tweeting, while the dogs who had been in previous Who Let the Dogs Out shows gathered together at Universal Studios in Hollywood, CA for the final show and to find out which one of them Jimmy Van Patten would bestow the title of Most Talented Dog in America—giving them the coveted winner’s trophy cup, a great gift card ($500) for @Petco, a wonderful Pooch Hotel stay, @NaturalBalance pet food for a year—oh, and some seriously cool Tillman’s Treats. Anipals quivered with anticipation watching all of the great dogs do tricks and strut their stuff. But in the end, there could only be one winner—and what a winner! Daisy, the fabulously talented retriever—she climbed ladders and balanced on the top, knelt and said her little doggy prayers on command, and she even moon-walked (now, that is some talent—a disco down dog!). Here’s a little recap of the show:
Anipals had a great time over these last few weeks joining @TillmanSkates on Twitter tweeting under the #TillmanTV hashtag while watching Who Let the Dogs Out—and wanted me to thank Tillman for such a fun, pawesome event. A big thanks to @AnimalPlanet, @NaturalBalance and @Petco for their forwarding thinking—supporting animals, showcasing talented dogs, and highlighting the super talented and skilled @TillmanSkates and his friends! Both humans and anipals alike enjoyed the show. To help make sure that we get more episodes of Who Let the Dogs Out—let’s be honest, we need more shows that showcase animals, as they help bring awareness to the many benefits animals bring in to the lives of humans—stand up, be counted, put your paws in the air like you care and tweet @AnimalPlanet and say, “We want more Tillman and #WhoLetTheDogsOut!”

#ArabianPawty On Saturday, 28 April 2012 you are invited to join hosts @SpookyShorty @PuppyNumber7 @Whskr for #ArabianPawty. As most of you know, our friend Spooky had lymphoma and he is now thankfully in remission. However he still has regular check-ups and associated required medicine—also getting him to this stage has left a large vet bill. Like many anipals out there, times are a bit tight for @SpookyShorty’s family—and they are struggling. So Spooky’s friends are hosting an “Arabian Nights”-themed #pawty. Come to #ArabianPawty and enjoy some entertainment, great food, camel rides and a tarot reader—help bolster Spooky and his mama, and have some fun #pawtying down. Make sure you RSVP here.
#LJWedding Sunday, 29 April 2012. All anipals and animal lovers are invited to join @MillyMopMoo, Lola, and @JackChiDoggy for this special occasion as they are united in wedded bliss. The lovely setting of The Hillbark Hotel is the venue for this very special day. Fancy dress or your own fur is always accepted. The esteemed #Nipclub Catering Service will be providing wonderful noms, DJs and barktenders—and make sure you come to this not to miss event. If you have any questions, or just want to send your congratulations, please contact the bride or groom—also, @DanaPixie has some good info for #LJWedding. See you there, anipals!
