26 October: HALLOWEEN WALK 2014, Hampstead, London 
You’re invited to don your creepiest canine costume for the annual Howler-ween extravaganza in aid of dog charity All Dogs Matter. Meet your fellow spooky ones at the Spaniards Inn before heading off to scare the locals on Hampstead Heath. After you’ve cleared away the cobwebs, there’ll be a Doggy Costume Contest and Raffle, with the top prize awarded to the Spookiest in Show. It’s £5 per entry for the walk and then it’s free to enter the fancy dress competition. Register your dog in advance by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you happen fancy a glitzy evening hanging with some cute hounds and a host of showbiz names (and happen to have a few thousand going spare), then get your name down for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s Collars & Coats Gala Ball. Basil’s mate and male model David Gandy was at last year’s event so the potential of his presence alone is worth raiding the doggy bank. View last year’s bash in our Puparazzi photo gallery.
