IT WAS A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS FOR US ALL

Hello Hounders,
I, Alex, am bringing you today's report about yesterday's festivities. It was a very nice day for all of us here in the Bumpass Hounds household. We all got up fairly early and our sister Sarah drove over from her house to have breakfast with mom and dad and the rest of us. Us C&Ds (cats and dogs) had already had a hearty breakfast and, because it was a pleasant weather day, all of the retriever dogs had gone out to the paddock to frolic around. Max and Shiloh went out to their pen and basically went back to sleep. Of course me, Boru and Jenny got to stay inside the warm and cozy house. After the people breakfast Mom and Dad and Sarah exchanged presents and made a lot of really neat paper trash. Of course Boru, Jenny and I had to check out all of the "stuff" under the tree thats now growing in the living room. And we had to play with all the ribbon from the packages and roll around in all the papper and other stuffing stuff from the boxes. It was really quite pleasant. Sarah went home and we had a usual morning except mom was cooking all sorts of good people food that smelled great. Boru and I tried to investigate but mom kept swatting at us and making us go away. Later in the day Sarah came back with her other person Bill and then all of our cuzins and their mom and dad came over too. Sophie got to come inside from the house because she is new here and all of the cuzins and aunt and uncle had not met her yet. I must say that Sophie behaved very well for a dog and she was a BIG (pardon the bun Sophie) hit. She was a little bit excited by all of the goings on at first but she settled down and hung around mom and dad helping them do whatever they were doing. The people had dinner and again, Boru and I tried to join them but dad got out that yucky "cat away" and put it on the table. It's a secret formula in a trigger squeeze bottle. The formula for the stuff is on the bottle, it's made of "H2O" and we have no idea what it can do to us. He even squrted me and and Boru a couple of times as we tried to check the turkey and ham (yeah Huffle, we had a big ham here) to make sure it wasn't poison. We didn't want anyone getting sick. There was more stocking empting and present swapping and lots more paper and ribbon trash. It was a really great time. I'm pasting on some of the pictures from the magic box stuck on the puter. It'll give you and idea of how messy and fun everything was here yesterday. We all hope that you had a great day too and don't forget the reason for the season. - Alex and TBH

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.

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.
