HOW TO HUG A BABY

Hey Hounders,
It's Jenny and Boru today. We're back. Yesterday's title was just an April's fool joke; too bad huh? Did you know that Boru's nicknames are Bruiser, Bruissy, Booggers Boru, Catzilla and Lardo? His real registered name is Brian Boru Beau-Maine. Jenny's nicknames are Jen-Jen, Kitty Pie, Sweet Girl and Pretty Girl. Her non-registered name is Jenny.
We got the below article in an email making the rounds and decided to steal it and put our brand on it so we didn't have to think up a lot of stuff for today's post; it's like wordless Wednesday on Thursday. Feel free to steal it from us. - The Bumpass Hounds

CANINE ILLUSTRATED INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROPERLY HUGGING A BABY


1. First, spy a baby.


2. Second, be sure that the object you spied was indeed a baby by employing classic sniffing techniques --if you smell baby powder and the wonderful aroma of wet diapers this is, indeed, a baby.


3. Next you will need to flatten the baby before actually beginning the hugging process.**Note: The added slobber should help in future steps by making the 'paw slide' easier.**


4. The 'Paw Slide': Simply slide paws around baby and prepare for possible close-up.


5. Finally, if a camera is present, you will need to execute the difficult and patented 'Hug, Smile, and Lean' so as to achieve the best photo quality.

IF YOU ARE FROM ARKANSAS WE NEED YOUR HELP.
We're trying to get at least one guest book entry from each of the 50 United States and D.C. and one from as many different countries as we can. We'd appreciate you helping us out; leave a photo and your blog address if possible. It's been a very productive weekend. Thanks to Willow we now have Michigan. So as of 1 April 09 we still need the following 17 states: AR, HI, ID, LA, ME, MN, MS, MT, NE, NV, NH, NM, ND, OK, RI, SD, WV. If you're from one of these states, please sign our guest book. If you have a friend in one of these states could you please get them to visit us and sign our book.

We remember our friend Spencer everyday and we smile. Via con Dios Spencer

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.
