THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU AND A QUIZ QUESTION

Heya Hounders, It's, Shellby Belle, the puppy from H#LL, here today. We were just over at Travis' blog and found out that the results are of last weeks Supra Saturday voting have been posted, Guess what? Yep, you got, we won; we hardly ever win anything but we did this time. So we, all together, would like to say: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, very much. First, we'd like to thank the members of the Academy for bestowing on us this honor ....... OOPS, wrong speech. Yipee, yipee, yippe. (that's better). We really didn't deserve such an honor. Shucks, golly, cheese whiz. We're just kinda all down home country bumpkins from good ole Bumpass. Thanks to all of our BBs (Blog Buddies) who voted for us and put up with our almost daily rantings about one thing or another. With 12 of us here it's usually impossible to get a consensus about anything. Well, we'll keep ranting as long as y'all are reading. Thank y'all very much. And a big Thank You to Travis and Max and Maya for doing what they do. Our BB Joey is one of the nominees for this week's Supa Saturday voting. Joey, just like us, has a old and feeble dad to take care of so he's very deserving of a sympathy vote if you are undecided. - The (very humbled) Bumpass Hounds
We also have a quiz question for y'all toady. We had somebody ask my brother's name is J.E.B. and not just Jeb? Well, the J.E.B. way of spelling it is correct. Just like my other brother's names are Jubal and Jackson. Does anyone of you Hounders think you know why J.E.B.'s name is spelled that way and why that's his name?

well, y'all have a good weekend. it's gorgeous day today and the boaters are even out on the lake. I think that we'll be spending the day lounging and running around the paddock while dad tries to get the lawn mower cranked up; the battery is dead.

Gettin an unanimous decision around here is impossible too since there's 16 of us. Most of the time DawgMom just says "That's it, I'M decidin" We're not sure about yer brother's name, we just call him Jeb. BOL.

Hi Shellby Belle and the rest of the Hounders! Congrats on winning over at Travis's place, and thanks for the nod. I don't know why J.E.B.'s name is spelled like that, but I'm sure there's a good reason. It's a beautiful day here, too.

See ya!
Joey

Hahahaha...we know it. James Ewell Brown Stuart, West Point Graduate and General of the Army of the Confederacy. Hehehe...you forgot we lived in Virginia for while when I was just new to my family? We lived in the same time where VMI is, and you just had to learn some of these things.

respectful salutes, sir

oops, same town!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Congrats on your award!! Way to go!

We guessed that J.E.B.'s name is spelled that way because it is an abbreviation. We have a few guesses.
Steve: Jolly Easygoing Boy
Kat: Just Eats Bones
Wilbur: Jumping Eggheaded Beast

Congratulations on winning!

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.
