SUNNY SATURDAY

THE URCHIN IS HERE, THE URCHIN IS HERE
Hey Hounders,
Big Jubes (Jubal) here today. Y'all know our cuzin Caitlin, a.k.a. "The Urchin." Well she didn't have to go to school Friday so Dad and Sophie went up to Fred Vegas (Fredericksburg, VA) to pick her up from her swim team practice Thursday night so she could spend the weekend with us here in beautiful downtown Bumpass. We love it when The Urchin is here. She usually takes Homer up to sleep with her in the Tinker Bell (guest) room. Us dogs used to not be allowed upstairs but now mom seems to have given up on attempting to enforce that rule. The Urchin doesn't mind getting down and dirty to play with us and scratch our bellies and stuff. Dad can also do the get down and dirty stuff but he has kinda lost the ability to then get up and do his bi-ped thing without making lots of loud and sometimes scary noises. Caitlin kinda just springs back up. She's very athletic, like a Tigger. The wonderful thing about Tiggers is that Tiggers are wonderful things. Their tops are made out rubber; their bottoms are made out of springs. They're bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, bouncy bouncy fun. The most wonderful things about Tiggers is that she's the only one.










MOGLEY GOT A MESSAGE FROM MARLO. Just yesterday, Freaky Friday, we posted an email that our blog buddy Mogley got from his friend Marlo who WAS in a foster home waiting to be adopted. Then Mogley got another email and here is what it said:

"Dear Mogley and Sassy: My foster sister Evelyn is helping me with this email tonight. My foster parents took me to an appointment earlier this evening. Guess what? I have a new forever home! I was introduced to these very nice people. They have a nice house with a fenced back yard and a little pond just for me! Well, I think the pond is for fish but it is still going to be mine. Their golden went to The Rainbow Bridge some time ago and they have been storing up a lot of pets, scritches and kisses. I can't wait to move in with them. They have a cat and thanks to Evelyn's advice I know to ignore it. They even have some tennis balls already! They are going to come pick me up as soon as they can get some necessities for me. I requested a soft bed and lots of toys. I am sure they are going to get them for me. They also said they need food and a leash and a few other things. Please tell my friend Sassy that I will miss her and I am sure she will find a good forever home here real soon. Evelyn says that there is someone out there for everyone of us and that GRRR is dedicated to making sure that the right dog goes to the right forever home. Thank you GRRR for helping me and Sassy. Hugs and kisses, Marlo"


Remember everybody, April is Adopt A Pet Month, so do what YOU can to help a homeless dog or cat find a new home. Volunteer or contribute to your local rescue organisations if you can't adopt a pet yourself.

How wonderful to have such a tigger to play with. Looks like you all were very comfy happy with her. =) And congrats to Marlo, now just to find Sassy a home.

Dear TBH,
Please send love and healing thoughts and hope to Kim and her 4 y/o Berner girl, Maggie who was just diagnosed with a mast cell tumor. They need all us pulling for them. Visit them with love at http://life-with-berners.blogspot.com/

So The Urchin is bouncy, kinda like me? I can totally picture her now that you gave that description.

You pups and kitties are really good guessers. We hadn't considered a prize for your guessing, but maybe we will ponder it now. :-)

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.
