Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof is a success! The Wigglebutt Warriors is the fundraising arm of Fidose of Reality. Our 2014 gala took place September 20th through 21st in northern Virginia. The aptly dubbed “Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof” event featured close to 120 people and their pets pawty-ing the night away with the kickoff event at Olde Towne Pet Resort in Sterling, Virginia. Here’s the scoop:
In true tabloid fashion, the paw-parazzi took to the red carpet to photograph dogs, cat, and ferrets strutting their finest couture in the name of fundraising.
Our official videographer of the event was Richie Montgomery of 3 Moments Media. However, there is a very important reason we came together in the name of celebration: Homeless Cocker Spaniels.
Rather than tell you what happened, allow us to SHOW you. This is the video that kicked off the entire evening. After watching, skip down for the winners of the first ever Wiggy Awards. Thanks to ALL our sponsors and please visit them here to see who helped us save homeless Cockers!
During the Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof gala, eight awards were given out in a variety of categories. Robbin and Joseph Everett of TPPC.tv hosted the festivities and here are the winners (though all pets in attendance deserve a huge round of a-paws!)

Special thanks to all our sponsors and blogger sponsors along with everyone who came out, donated, and made a difference in the name of dog for OBG Cocker Rescue. We raised 30K through our efforts AND we have launched our very own Pup Scouts troop! Stay tuned for more details on that and how to paw-ticipate, fundraise, help dogs in need, and have fun while earning badges. We are over the moon excited to have folks join in and be a Pup Scout in Wigglebutt Warriors Troop 1017. Susan Godwin is an awesome pal and fur-end and now we can join her Pup Scouts and help other dogs in need!
