SATURDAY OUTING TO THE LAKE

Hey Hounders,
Max and Shiloh here to tell y'all some more about our walk down to the lake to go swiming saturday. One of the things that we got to do was to run along the shore line towards the woods and back:

We actually got to go into the lake and got wet. It was a beautiful day, about 75 degrees, but even though our side of the lake is heated, Shiloh thought the water was a bit cold....some Newfoundland spirit there Shiloh. Max, on the other hand, really enjoyed splashing around for the first time this year:

On the way back home from the lake we walk by the FooFoo's house and they were out in their yard. Max decided that he would serenade them to say hello:

All in all, we had a very nice outing to the lake. It was nice of our cuzin Caitlin, The Urchin, and dad to take us down to the lake for a little recreation and to finally welcome spring to Bumpass (we hope).

WE WON SOME AWARDS
Our blogging buddy Joey recently presented us with 3, count 'em 3, awards. We garnered the "Your Blog Is Fabulous Award" which makes us a two time winner,. We also won the Pink Roses Award which was presented because: "Pink Roses are given to all friends out there, bringing them a sweet and fruitful day. Those who receive these roses as a gift, you need to pass it on to 10 friends of yours to show them you care. And of course, for those who received the roses, that's to show that you're never forgotten."

And last, but not least, Joey presented us with the "Life Is Grand" Award. For this award we have to list 5 reasons why life is grand:
1. We have each other and live with a mom and dad who love us a lot and will do anything for our well fare.
2. We have a great cuzin Caitlin, a.k.a. The Urchin, who loves to come visit and play with us, pet us and generally give us lots of attention.
3. We live next to a great big lake that is actually heated year round for our swimming enjoyment.
4. We have such wonderful bloggie friends who mean so much to us and have opened our minds to whole new worlds and adventures. :=)
5. We often get to help find homeless dogs their new forever homes by helping Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRR).
We want to pass each of these awards along to our blog buddies Mogley, Bella and Sassy. Sassy's adoption interview this last Saturday didn't work out as we had all hoped so she is gonna stay with Mogley and Bella a little while longer. Every body get your good vibes vibrating and send them over to Sassy with a few words of encouragement please. Thanks

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.

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.
