    HO HO HO! Merry August!

    [​IMG]

    Back by popular demand, the infamous PF Secret Santa! Holly and I are looking forward to seeing what 2019 brings and we hope that plenty of you are up for taking part. This year's Secret Santa Paws will be run by myself and @Torin.

    All official SS threads will be started by myself or Torin.

    Please read the below rules and regs:

    • Players MUST have minimum 100 posts and 6 months on the forum to join in – I’m sorry if that means some people cannot play, but we need to make sure that people are regularly involved with PF. Participants should be regularly active on the forum throughout the coming months (please log in a few times a week to ensure you don't miss anything and we can get in touch if we need to).
    • Maximum capacity of 70 separate dogs – first come, first served.
    • 50p via PayPal (friends and family) is required per individual dog playing – and must be sent to [email protected] (please put your username and the dog's name in the comments on Paypal). In the event of non-compliance with the rules this 50p will NOT be refunded. The collected money will hopefully go to charity providing that all participants receive their parcels and I do not end up having to send out emergency parcels
    • There will be deadlines (see below) so please stick to them. Please please PLEASE do not sign up if you cannot commit to the deadlines - I really do not want to have to spend time chasing you and it is not fair on those who stick to deadlines if you do not.

    • Deadlines:
    • Now- 21st September = Participants thread – sign up sign up!!! (assuming you have been good this year……)
    • Send your details, (Name, Address, Dog participating, number of parcels wanting to send/receive, ie you could have 3 dogs all wanting to send and receive or 3 dogs wanting to send one parcel and receive one parcel) by PM to ME only, along with your 50p (per parcel receiving) by Paypal (friends and family) to the above email.
    • If details and monies have not been received by Sept 21st, then sorry you will have missed the boat this year.
    • If you have participated in SS in previous years then please let us know who you bought for so we can try to mix it up.
    • 21st September - 8th October = Likes and dislikes. Tell us about your pooch – if by the 8th of October no details have been posted then sorry you will have missed the boat this year, your name will be removed from the list.
    • 8th- 12th October = you will receive a message telling you who you are buying for from either Torin. or myself - whichever of us contacts you with your present receiver will be your primary contact for the duration of this year's SS.
    • 12th October – 1st December = BUY BUY BUY BUY – minimum spend £5 not including postage.
    • 1ST Dec LATEST you need to have posted your parcel. Once posted take a picture of proof of postage (date included) and PM the message to either myself or Torin., whoever was your primary SS contact.
    • 25th Dec (or slightly earlier for some people) - Time for your woofers to open their parcels. Pictures of the opening to be up by 28th December at the very latest
    • 28th Dec (or as soon as all pictures of opened parcels are up) - 31st Dec - time to guess who your SS was. All guesses to have been made by 31st December.
    • All gifts must be wrapped – doggies love the paper shredding time!!
    • Make sure to include a clue as to your identity in your parcel for your receiver to guess.
    • Participation in the PARCEL RECEIVED thread, PICTURES of openings and participation in the who sent to me/ guessing thread are COMPULSORY and should be done in a timely manner - please do not keep your SS wondering if you have received/opened their parcel.
    • Failure to comply will result in you being placed on the naughty list for next year, meaning you will not be able to participate!!
    • I know life can get in the way, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not join up if you know you won't be able to meet all of the deadlines. If your universe goes all squiffy and you are having issues then please try and make the time to send a PM to your SS contact. Members look forward to this all year and it’s a shame when it goes Pete Tong!
    • Lastly ---- ENJOY ENJOY ENJOY!!!

    Hi folks, I may not respond to all your messages individually, but if your name appears on the participants list above (on the edited original post) then it means I have received your money and details :)

    I'd love to play with my three... Hold on while I sort the PM stuff.......


    PM and PayPal sent.

    Checking the year, Samuel has been anything but good, but he's hoping that if his angelic newfie brothers vouch for him, you'll still let him play
