FUN AT THE LAKE.

Hey Hounders,
Max and Shiloh here today. The weather has gotten a lot more like spring. It was warm and sunny yesterday, about 75 degrees. It was so nice that dad decided to take us swimming down at the lake. So dad leashed us up and him and The Urchin took us for a walk down to the boat launch area. At first we pulled dad pretty hard because we haven't been on a walk for a while, but after a few minutes we settled down pretty good. When we got to the lake, dad unleashed us and let us go into the water. Max went swimming and Shiloh went wadding. We even went for an exploratory run in the woods near the lake. Dad yelled at us and told us to come back, which we did obediently. We played for about half an hour and then the party pooper dad told us it was time to go home. Caitlin took Max's leash and Dad took Shiloh's leash and we started our walk home. On the way home, we stopped at the FooFoo's house and Max sang them a beautiful song. Then we went back into our pen and took a nap before dinner. It was a nice excursion.

UP DATE on Sassy
Today (Saturday) we received a message that Sassy has someone interested in adopting her and giving her a Forever Home. Sassy is excited, she is packing her bags and will be to excited to sleep tonight. They found her on the GRRR rescue web site and read her profile. They want to meet her and see if they like her and if she likes them. They have submitted their application, their home has been visited by the inspection team to be sure they have a good home with a yard, proper fencing and lots of extra love to give. They have passed all the tests and all that is left is to meet Sassy and get her approval. Stay tuned and keep your paws crossed.

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.
