THE PHOTO GAME

6TH FILE; 6TH FOLDER; 6TH PHOTO IS IT REAL OR IS IT MEMOREX?

Hey Hounders,
Big Al here with today's post. I've got an extreme case of writer's block so I'm going to fall back on the old photo game ploy. Huffle Mawson, Explorer Cat, and a lot of our other friends on Dogs With Blogs are playing a thing called the Photo Game. What you do is go to your "Picture" directory and then go to the 6th file, the 6th folder, and select the 6th picture and then post it with a description of what it is. In our "My Pictures" directory the 6th file is (Alpacas, AM & Animals, Animal Videos, At Home, Boo & Scout, then..) "Cats." The 6th folder in the Cats file is (Alex, Boru, Cat Stuff, Family Cats, Jenny, and..) "Misc Cats." This is the 6th photo in the Misc Cats folder and it is labeled as "Big Cat." Dad downloaded the picture from the Internet and had no idea who it is or where or when it was taken, or even if it is real or a photo shopped picture. To make things a little more interesting, dad and I decided to do a little research to try to find out more about the picture. We went to http://www.snopes.com and did a search for "Big Cat Photo." Surprise, we got a few hits. We searched down and right off the bat we discovered our picture with a claim that the photo is real. The cat is a Maine Coon like me and Boru and it only weighed 2 pounds more than Boru. The cat's name is Reilly and the photo was taken in 2004. Check out some more info and photo's of this guy at SNOPES.

Yep some Maine Coons do get that big! Whimpurr first saw the MC at a cat show and they were that big! We think only breeders grown them THAT big! ;o)

For a minute I thought that first photo was of Boru, and I was AMAZED at how big he is. I'm still amazed, just not capital letters amazed.

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.
