94TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE GALLIPOLI AMPHIBIOUS ASSAULT








Heya Hounders,
Jubal here today. Our very good blog buddy, Huffle Mawson, dedicated her blog post yesterday to Australian ANZAC Day. ANZAC day commemorates the Amphibious landing of the Australian - New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) on the Gallipoli Peninsula of what was then the Ottoman Empire is now Turkey. ANZAC Day is very special in Australia and New Zealand and you can read about it at: http://www.hurriyet.com.tr/english/domestic/11508356.asp?gid=244

Other "you tube" posts that are very appropriate are:


and a Canadian piece, although not directed at ANZAC Day but towards Remembrance Day at:

We want to join all of the DWB Founders and Australian and New Zealand members in honoring their armed forces.

We hope that Golden Honey is relaxing and that she is comfortable. We howl for her well being every night and wish her well.

Thanks for letting us know Golden Honey is losing ground. We rushed right over to check on her and, as if we haven't shed enough tears today, we cried as we read the post.

Don't worry. We're keeping a LOT of eyes on Jan!

We learned about ANZAC day over at the Army of Four and Huffle too!

PS. Mom went to a wedding this weekend back in Kansas and they played the song that plays on your blog while people were walking out after the wedding.

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.
