Fidose of Reality has two announcements to share today with regards to the Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof “fun”-draiser we are hosting to benefit OBG Cocker Rescue on September 20, 2014, in Sterling, Virginia.
Let’s get right to the two big announcements and how you, fellow dog lovers of the highest order, can get involved right away:
The DPFamily PupScouts is proud to reveal that members of any PupScout troop affiliated with DPFamily can earn a “Hollywoof” badge in conjunction with attending Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof!
For those unfamiliar, the DPFamily PupScouts, here’s the scoop. If you were ever a brownie or Cub Scout, or perhaps a Girl Scout, you know how much fun it can be. Imagine if someone did the same for dogs and created Dog Scouts or Pup Scouts, where dogs of all shapes, sizes, and ages are welcome to earn a variety of badges. Well, this is what DPFamily PupScouts is all about. Your dog can be a PupScout, and for anyone who is already a DPFamily PupScout member across the world, read on: Here’s how to earn a Hollywoof badge.
How to Earn an Exclusive Hollywoof PupScouts Badge
Attend the Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof gala on 09/20/14. All Pup Scouts of DPFamily Troop 4 or any troop associated with DPFamily in attendance will receive the exclusive badge if the criteria below is met. Must be present to receive the patch. An exclusive group photo in uniforms will also be taken that evening.
How to Earn the Hollywoof Badge for DPFamily Member PupScouts

- You, as a DPFamily PupScouts member, will choose a rescue you want to be associated with and make a Facebook post saying that they (PupScout so and so) proudly promotes Such and Such shelter? And then share one or more of the pups at that shelter who need a home on your Facebook page. The goal is for you, as a PupScout of DPFamily, to help raise awareness of dogs in need of their forever home.
- In keeping with the Hollywoof theme, post a picture of your doggie DPFamily PupScout WITH a Celebrity OR post a picture of your doggie DPFamily PupScout dressed as a Celebrity.

If anyone wants to earn the new Pup Scout Badge that is exclusive to anyone attending the Hollywoof event in September of 2014 and become a Pup Scout, you can visit pupscouts.org and register to start your own troop or join troop 50, which is the online troop. My dear pal, Tasha Bella Godwin, can fill you in with any questions. Dexter and Zoe are Pup Scouts and you can be one, too. It’s a lot of fun and you do neat things with your dog for badges.

OBG Cocker Rescue: Established in 1996, OBG is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of cocker spaniels and mixes in the mid-Atlantic region – primarily DC, MD and VA.
Many people think the name “Oldies But Goodies” references the senior dogs that were saved by OBG; however, legend has it that the name “Oldies But Goodies” came about because our founder said that people threw out dogs like a pair of old shoes (no matter what their age).
