MAP QUEST PART 1 = NORTH DAKOTA

CAN ANYONE HELP US OUT?
Hey Hounders,
It's Homer J. with today's blog post. I know that I'm late but dad was tied up today and he has to tun on the 'puter for us to do the blog; so it's his fault that I'm late today.
As you probably know, we've been trying to get signatures in our guest book up at the top of the blog from all 50 states and D.C. Well, we were doing pretty good for a while but then we hit a snag. Seems we're now only missing two states that just happen to share the same last name. Yep, it's North Dakota and it's sister state South Dakota. We went through the entire Dogs With Blogs registry and there aren't any Dakota Dogs. We've asked the Hounders to see if anyone knows a dog in the Dakotas; no luck. So being desperate we decided to try to contact a (hopefully) kindly soul that might be able to sign our Guest Book ad lives in the Dakotas. Our first target is North Dakota. We explored the Internet and found a very beautiful woman who is the most famous morning radio host in all of North Dakota. Her name is Shelly and she is the star of KEGK-FM radio. We stole her picture from the stations website.
This is what North Dakota looks like. It is touching Canada, Montana, Minnesota and, of course, South Dakota.

This is Ms. Shelly, who we hope will be kind enough to sign our guest book. We are gonna send her an e-mail and politely ask if she'll sign our Guest Book for us. She might even know someone from South Dakota. We thought we'd do a little advertising for North Dakota so we have listed their tourism website. We have also listed the radio station, KEGK-FM, website. You can listen to their broadcast stream. KEGK is "The Eagle" and not to be confused with The Eagles which is a 70s rock band that our dad used to like. Anyway, here some stats on the radio station and about North Dakota. Does anyone remember the TV show "The Electric Company?" They had a character named Fargo North and he was a Decoder.
He was Fargo North, Decoder. We think that the movie "Fargo" was about North Dakota.

This is Ms. Shelly's Bio from the station's website. You can e-mail her and ask that she sign our Guest Book.

Well, that's today's quest. Wish us luck. If it works we try South Dakota next to close out our quest.

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.
