WE'RE JUST PLAYING.

Hey Y'all,

It's Homer J. here with my buddy Alex. We're just playing together because Al wants to and I don't feel like getting up. He's not unconscious or anything like that, he's just laying down stretched out like this for who knows what reason. Usually it's Boru that hangs around and rubs on us dogs; it is a little disgusting actually.

No football on TV today so dad did P3, or P cubed, that stands for Paddock Poop Patrol. The temperature was in the teens last night and in the high 20s late this morning. That's perfect paddock poop patrol weather because all the turds have frozen overnight and are still solid when dad goes out to scoop them. It's a dirty job but someone has to do it, and sure the heck isn't gonna be mom.
Dad spent and hour or so picking ticks off of us. He says that ticks like to hitch hike inside on us because it's so cold out; and they like to drink our blood. He says that if it would stay really cold for a few weeks it might kill off a lot of the fleas and ticks. Many of the ticks that he picks off of us are dead because of some medicine in our blood - SURPRISE SUCKER. The cats don't go out so they aren't having a problem; mom checks them though just in case a tick jumps off of one of us and then on to them. Maybe the ticks just don't like the taste of yicky cat blood.

We did the DWB ChatPawty this morning. We were trying to find out more about Spencer but most people hadn't yet heard about him being sick. We still haven't been able to get past Spencer's spam guard word to leave a comment and some of the other dogs on the ChatPawty were having the same trouble. We hope that Spencer got our email. Our stomachs have been tied up in knots since we heard the news yesterday; we are all very worried about Spencer. We are howling to the heavens to make him better.

Well that's about it. Don't forget to pray for Spencer.

Dear Bumpass(es)

We are sorry to hear about your friend Spencer, and left a message of support. We love your kitties. But we might still want to chase them!

We just want to warn Gus that both Boru and Alex each probably weigh as much as he does and they have very, very sharp claws; take it from J.E.B. Alex has had slapping matches with Shiloh (she weighs 160 lbs) and he just stands his ground. You can chase Jenny and she'll run away but beware of her brothers, Al and Brusy, the take offense to anyone chasing Jenny other than them. If you want to chase Alex and Boru you'd better have a good supply of Peroxide, Iodine and bandages. You'll get the point (pardon the pun).

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.
