RADAR''S DIGS

REDOING THE GARAGE
Heya Hounders,
It's Shelby Belle, the puppy from h#ll, with today's posting. Sophie is still wearing the stupid looking blue doughnut on her head; good thing Maggie and Mitch don't live in our neighborhood cuz they'd probably try to eat Sophie's doughnut. Max got out of his crate last week sometime during one of the rainy afternoons and he messed up the garage kennel - AGAIN! What a mess, mostly torn up newspaper and dumping the trash can. Nobody's had to go to the vet and except for all the mud still around after a week of rain, things are going OK. Oh yeah, the puppy in the detached garage thing, thanks for reminding me Homer. The puppy in the big garage is Radar. He's 14 weeks old. He was born blind. He contracted parvo virus about a week and a half ago and spent a week in the veterinary hospital being treated with IV and meds. He had been turned in to AHGRR about 2 weeks ago. Ms Carol took the pup to the vet when he stopped eating an had watery stools. AHGRR has to pay all the medical bills to save Radar's life. Radar used to be Radio before he came here. Because he couldn't be quarantined at AHGRR, mom and dad volunteered to foster Radar because he could be kept in the big detached garage. Mom says she doesn't think he'll be fostered too long. He has to be quarantined for 3-4 weeks and then he'll be introduced to us. If we get along he'll probably stay as a permanent resident. Anyway, mom and dad set up the 6' X 8' cyclone fence kennel in the detached garage. They put some mats in it and a bunker side fleece doggie bed. They also put our spill proof water bowl and a doggie liter box in the kennel. Dad leaves the radio on in there all of the time so Radar will have something to listen to. We'll attach some photos of the setup and a few of Radar in the kennel. Tomorrow we'll tell you about his routine.

Welcome to Radar! thats a very cool name. Something like that happened to me not long ago, this little pink harness came, and a second crate went up, and BAM! a puppy! it's ok though, gives me something to think about besides myself.. Tell your dad he can come back to Pittsburgh and be able to breathe. It's very clean now.

your pal, Morgan

Ah, poor baby. He looks so alone and lonely. Glad he won't be for too long. He's had a rough road already.

It looks like Radar has pretty nice digs. His crate is way bigger than mine.

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.

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.
