MY 2MORE ECKTUMMY - HOMER J.

Heya hounders, Homer J. here with a short post for our new buddy Gussie. Gus had a bump (named Rodney) cut out of him this morning and Gus seems like he's doing A-OK (space talk for good); Rodney isn't doing as well. Gus must be a little on the vain side cuz he doesn't want his muzzer taking any pictures of him cuz he thinks he looks scruffy from his operation. I had a pretty big 2more taken out of my side the day after Christmas 2007 and I got a lot of my coat shaved off and then I had a big line of stables / stitches slicing across my side. It was ugly and itchy so I wanted to scratch it with my tongue and I didn't want no picture taking either. My Dad didn't think that was a very good idea so he dug an old sweatshirt out of the closet. Appropriately it was from the Salty Dog Cafe in Hilton Head, SC and it had a picture of a Retriever on it; I think it is a Lab though. Dad put the sweatshirt on me and tied a knot in it on my back so that it didn't drag on the floor and so it didn't get in my way when I was writing pee mail out in the paddock. Then I didn't mind getting my picture took cuz I looked kinda cool and I couldn't really scratch my stitches with my tongue cuz the fleece dried it out when I tried it. Anyway, after a few weeks my staples came out and the stitches did too and EVENTUALLY my coat filled in where I had got shaved. Now I look like I did before my operation 'cept the 2more bump is gone and nothing has grown back to take its' place. Hang in there Gussie, everybody loves you and they don't care what you look like as long as you're there to love everybody back. It would be nice if you hounders stopped over and left well wishes for Gus.

STEP UP TO ADOPT A PET

If you can, please consider opening your home to a homeless animal, preferably a dog or cat or other domesticated animal; livestock does better on farms and wild animals do better in zoos and parks. Your local Humane Society or SPCA or Animal Shelter has a wide selection of could be, should be, pets looking for new homes. If you can't adopt, perhaps you can at least become a sponsor. We'll show you how to help out Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) on our blog page, but you can help out any organization of your choice, but please help; contribute or volunteer.

PLEASE HELP SPONSOR A SENIOR OR SPECIAL NEEDS GOLDEN

CAN'T ADOPT; BECOME AN ANGEL.
So many Senior and Special Needs Goldens do not find "forever homes". Many of these dogs have above average medical needs and costs, are maintained on "special" diets, or have other extraordinary needs. Your donations can be targeted towards a particular Senior or Special needs Golden Retriever. As a sponsor, you will receive updates about your "special" Golden, and will be mentioned in our quarterly newsletter as the dog's sponsor. We also accept Paypal donations. Please keep in mind that we are a non-profit organization and that your donation is fully tax-deductible. Please just write the Golden's name in the memo line of your check or Paypal submission when sponsoring a Golden Retriever.
