a few days from now, june 12, will be the two year anniversary of the day that i had idea to start the #pawpawty sekurity team. june 12 will also be the day i offishully retire as captain of the team. in two years i haz recruited 25 officers, organized sekurity for 28 pawties and worked 31 shifts! i haz danced wif beootiful girls, nommed @manxington’s duckie and foiled some plots and participated in a few others (BOL!)

i leave the team in the capable paws of recently promoted captain brutus (@brutusthedane) wif assistance of lieutenant – and team seamstress – shawnee (@shawneeshep).

we haz had a wonderful team over the past two years. it feels like a family and ize very happy and proud to be part of it. thank you all so much for the fun we’ve had. it haz been an honor to pawtekt and serve! ize confident that the team will show captain brutus the same respect you haz shown me and will continue to do a GRATE job of helping @frugaldougal and the rest of the #pawpawty team to raise money for animal shelters, rescues and causes.

this not all the uniforms i haz worn but the ones i had handy in the locker room to show you:

Oh my, what an amazing two years! So many pawties and so many anipals having a great time in large part because of the help your Sekurity team always helped provide. So many anipals got their first greetings to the anipal twitterverse from your wonderful teams. Can’t even begin to count the number of hijinks we all pulled your Ossifers into!…snicker…

Hope to still see you around at pawpawties & enjoy your retirement Cap’t Snickers!!

Capt thank you so much for all your hard work! Have fun in your retirement! Thanks for helping make Twitter fun and charitable! You’ve helped bring out the best in social media. Love, Daisy

Sir I’m gonna miss you. Thanks for all your help and for training me to be the best sekurity I can be.

Fergus June 19, 2011 at 1:25 pm

OMD, we had so much fun, Snickers. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years already! Remember when I stole your sekurity santa hat and ran off with it? I’m still laughing at the pink camo sekurity uniforms and I always enjoyed being the super-sekrit informant and keeping Mugsy and Perry in check (sort of, well, maybe not so much as I was usually helping them in their high jinks). Thanks for all your hard work and cretivity. The sekurity team added such a lot to #pawpawty, chasing off the spammers and nekkid ladies like that Britni girl, welcoming new anipals, and the reports are always fun, especially when Mugsy was involved:) Have a wonderful retirement my friend and I hope to pawty with you soon. *Salutes and doffs my sekurity santa hat* Oops, didn’t mean to let you know I still had that – I suppose you’ll want it back now?

Ret. Capt. Snickers,
You are a Great dog and a Great Captain, your team has been trained well and Captain Brutus will do a fine job I am sure. I think now is a good time to tell you that… I *swiped* your Master Sekurity keys about a year ago and made duplicates. I’ve waited a month since your retirement, to tell you this, cuz i figure you will be on a nice water filled dog-bed, drinking a doggyrita somewhere sunny. Have a great retirment Snickers, you paws will be hard to fill !!!

snickers July 19, 2011 at 1:44 am

dude we changed all the really important locks about 2 weeks after you taked the keys. we left a few for you cz we didnt haz the heart to tell you we were on to your hijinx!
