MORE ABOUT MAX

GOING HOME & JUBAL: (http://bumpasshounds.blogspot.com/2009/03/meet-max.html)

Because I was too young, I couldn't go home with mom and dad immediately after they picked me out from my litter. Eventually they couldn't put it off any longer and they actually had to come down and get me at Brookstone Newfoundlands in Chesterfield, VA. They showed up in a nice big, gas guzzling SUV that was very roomy and comfortable for someone of my status and stature. They brought along one of their Golden Retrievers, Jubal, to keep me company as if I needed a wet nurse. (Well he couldn't have really been a wet nurse since he was a boy dog and probably dry instead of wet.) Jubal turned out to be a sociable sort and we got along well for the hour ride home. Jubal sure likes to lie down a lot and make funny breathing noises; kinda like a chain saw followed by a wheeze, over & over. He keeps his eyes closed a lot. He doesn't move around a lot either. Big Jubes --- well, he was Big when I was little -- is a really laid back dude (most of the time). At first I liked looking out the windows but I was still a little wobbly and I felt kinda yucky so I laid down by Jubal most of the way home. We eventually got to my new home. I could tell we were getting close 'cause Jubal sat up and was looking around. He said we were just about there.

MEETING THE GANG:
After dad opened the back of the car he helped me down and then walked me over to the back gate and took me up to the deck; Jubal came along. Then each of the other dogs came out to meet me one at a time; first Chance, then J.E.B., then Abby, then Shelby, and then Jack. (I met Gordon later, he was blind and lived downstairs in the family room.) We all checked each other out and sniffed butts (like people shake hands). I thought, "Wow. I like it here." - Max

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.
