THANK YOU HOUNDERS

THE BUMPASS HOUNDS

Hey Hounders,

We won, we won. We won a major award and it's not "F-R-A-G-I-L-E"

We were humbled to receive an e-mail letter from GreatDogSite.com telling us we won an award for having a good blogsite. Here's the e-mail:

"Bumpass Hounds,

Great News! Your website http://bumpasshounds.blogspot.com/ has been recognized by http://GreatDogSite.com and awarded the 'Great Dog Site of the Day Award'. How did your website win? Your site was referred to us by a fan or visitor who must really like your work. Our team reviewed your site and found it to promote the ethical treatment of animals as well as a good standard for the Golden Retriever breed; therefore, making it a'Great Dog Site'. Proudly display the award throughout your website for all your visitors to see that your hard work and dedication is paying off. Please let us know should you choose to accept this award. We would love to add your site to our Pet Website Directory.

Sincerely,

The team at GreatDogSite.com"

What we're proud of is that one of you hounders took the time and effort to nominate us for this recognition. We don't know who you are but we would like to thank you very much. We hope to be worthy of the recognition. There are lots of homeless and less fortunate souls in the world that need love and attention. This is the time of year when even grumpy people can sometimes open their hearts and pocketbooks to provide some of that needed love and attention. Why not make a New Years resolution to at least click on The Animal Rescue Site food donation button (http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clickToGive/home.faces?siteId=3&link=ctg_ars_home_from_ars_home_sitenav) everyday to help feed an animal in need. We have the website button posted over in our blog's right side margin to make it easier for y'all to do.

Thank you again.

Merry Christmas.

Thank you all for my lovely Christmas card. Thanks also for being so involved in rescue. Me and my four brothers were adopted from DROH. The Mommy is a volunteer with Dachshund Rescue of Houston and she knows how important it is to have people that will help us homeless little ones. We will be back to visit soon.

with love & God Bless ...Mona

ps...I'm having a snow post about DWB friends playing in the snow after Christmas, if you'd like to be a part of it please send a picture to the e-mail address on my bi.

That's really cool. Congrats on that!

By the way, we are very excited that you are getting cuzes for Christmas. They are very fun and the only toy I will fetch. Kat fetches several things, but I don't care for balls, but love cuzes. (Sometimes I have been known to fetch a stuffie.) Word has it around here that we might be getting a dino-cuz from the jolly guy in the red suit, but we won't know for sure for a few more days!

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.
