SHELBY BELLE IS FEELING WELL

Hey Hounders,
I want to thank y'all for the concern expressed about my health. I have now been declared, by my medical expert dad, to be cured thanks to the efforts of Doctors Witter and Collins at Confederate Ridge Animal Hospital in Fredericksburg, VA. "DOC" Witter is rather a lot like the Walter Matheau character in the Grumpy Old Men movie; a applicable title for "Doc.". Doc's an old horse doctor, a country vet that has definitely kept up with the times. Mom says that he has a lot of good "horse sense' but that that is good for us dogs too. He really knows his stuff . Doctor Collins is really cool; she's funny and a very gentle and caring vet. I like her a lot and she doesn't mind when I give her sloppy Shelby kisses; eveyone needs a motherly cleaning now and then. Dad says that Dr. Collins does really neat stitching and stapling and that she must've got an "A" for neatness in vet school. Dad says that if she hadn't become a vet she'd probably be an engineer like him cuz she is very precise. Dr. Newman is a good vet too, but I haven't been treated by her lately; she's been too busy with some of the other Bumpass Hounds. We "heart" CRAH. http://www.confederateridgeanimalhospital.com/
Anyway, the concoctions and injection I got evidently worked their veterinary magic in my system and killed off whatever had invaded me. I'm eating and drinking in a gluttonous manner, which is rather normal for me. I'm back to my normal emotional levels in keeping with the recent CNN News Flash. And, most importantly, I'm back to my usual mischievous self with the sounds of "Shelby, NO" and "Shelby, DOWN" and Shelby, THIS" and "Shelby, THAT" once again reverberating through the Bumpass household as dad and I fight our never ending battle for peace, justice and the American way. Gee, I do love to counter surf and clean everybody. Ooops, -- "SHELBY. GET DOWN NOW."

Hi Shelby! We've been reading through your posts and are happy that you're feeling better today. Nodoggie needs to be sick at Christmas-time :-)

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.
