SUNDAY REPORT ON SATURDAY'S GOINGS ON

HERES THE DEAL
Heya Hounders,
Sophie here with my little buddy, Radar (shown begging for treats). Kinda a late Sunday post but we don't want to miss a day. Yesterday the little guy, Radar. got his rabies shot and then he came along with me to get weighed. He weighs 32 lbs. He has mastered going up stairs and is working on going down. Initially he wanted to just leap like Superdog and fly, like with his front paws out straight and everything, so mom and dad had to show him the one step at a time call out method like Gordon used to do. He's done well on that method today but we'll watch him doing it for a while. He requires no guidance at all to go up stairs but needs coaxing to be talked down, for the time being at least. He is blending in well with the rest of us although his "enthusiasm" can grate on you after a while. All of us , except Homer, have had to practice our snarls and growls to keep from getting bitten to death or loose an ear. Only Abby has given Radar any trouble and mom and dad keep and eye on her when she in the area; they actually keep close tabs on all of us except for Homer J. Homer is the most tolerant. Homer hasn't so much as sneered at Radar and he is being accosted all of the time. Jubal just gives Radar a sneer when he's had enough. Shelby uses the avoid him plan. I was initially afraid of Radar because he comes on so strong but now I'm more accepting and tolerant. He mixes well with the cats, he now pays them no mind and they pay him no mind. He cornered Alex a few days ago and was rewarded with a bitch slapping so he has a new respect for cats. Boru seems to like him though. He even initiated playing this evening but poor Radar didn't see Boru rolling around in front of him. We're posting our videos on You Tube now so all you have to do go to
http://www.youtube.com/ and search "The Bumpass Hounds" to see the videos in case they aren't here.

You climb up the stairs like Mitch does, Radar - nice and slow and easy! I'm not really a big stairs fan and I run up them and look spastic just to get it over with!
Great job!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

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.
