Team/Synchronized Sleeping
Earlier in the competition we saw the winners of the individual sleeping event. Today we give out the awards for excellence in team and synchronized sleeping.
THE GOLD MEDAL
FIRST PLACE

Congratulations to Bumpass Hounds Chance and Boru for winning the gold medal!
Yes, cats and dogs can cuddle together!

Brian Boru Beau-Maine reporting from the 2008 Paw-Lympic games. WE WON! WE WON! WE WON! WE WON! Ahem, excuse me. The results are in for The Team /Synchronized Sleeping Competition, and I am pleased to announce that I WON! I WON! I WON! I WON! Ahem, excuse me. As I was previously reporting, The Gold Medal for demonstrating stupendous ability in the grueling Team/Synchronized Sleeping event is awarded to none other than myself, Boru, and my canine team mate Chance. As you loyal hounders are sadly aware, Chance has crossed the Rainbow Bridge after a courageous battle against cancer. http://bumpasshounds.blogspot.com/2008/03/chance-rainbow-bridge.html
Chance was a rescue dog and a vital member of our pack. We pack members knew that Chance was sick and Mom and Dad moved him into the house as a Special Boy after his spleen removal and subsequent diagnosis by Doc Witter. Alex and Jenny and I are all inside cats so we were company for Chance during his illness time. Fortunately, Chance only had two "bad" days during his sick time so we got to know each other pretty well. Being that Chance and me look the same, are the same color and about the same size, Chance tended to favor me. We would often practice our team napping. I was Chance's constant companion during his last days with The Bumpass Hounds. All of us Bumpass Hounds, canine and feline alike, miss our brother and know that he sent us Homer J. to help fill the void in our hearts caused by his premature departure from us. We are honored to have known Chance and are happy that he won a Gold Medal (with my help of course) because he was always a Gold Medal Champion to us. Our sincere thanks to Lenny (http://wirewise.blogspot.com/) and the judges for taking note of the uniqueness of our departed brother Chance.
- Boru and the rest of The Bumpass Hounds; that would be Homer J. - Jubal - J.E.B. - Shelby - Jack - Abby - Max - Shiloh - Alex and Jenny.

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.
