SECOND SHIFT EVENING TREAT DISPENSING

IS IT TREAT TIME YET?

Hey Hounders,
Us Bumpasses live in the lap of luxury when it comes to treats. Around here, treats are dispensed in the early morning, emphasis on EARLY, and again in the evening. Because there are 13 of us (as of last count) mom and/or dad dispense the treats to us by shifts. The 1st shift is the feline feeding group; that's Alex, Boru and Jenny. Their treat is bits of fajita chicken slices from Costco. Alex lets dad know when it's time for "CHICKEN" and even shows dad where it's kept (in the cold box). The dogs usually get chewies or Happy Hearts Cookies in the morning. Homer J. is the one to politely request morning treats and shows mom the kitchen cabinet where they're kept. The dog treats are either Happy Heart Cookies or Milkbones in the evening. The 2nd treat shift is the kitchen fed dogs which are 3 of the seniors; Homer J., Jubal, and Sophie, plus Jack because of interaction problems with the Newfs. The 3rd shift is the kennel fed troop made up of J.E.B., Shelby Belle, Abby, Max and Shiloh. Radar isn't assigned a particular shift yet as he usually still gets his treats in his crate so as not to cause disputes over whose treat is whose. Because of being blind, Radar can't provide his treat the full protection required in an alert pack like ours and he is likely to have it stolen if it drops from his mouth. That's one of the "special needs" you kind of figure out with a blind puppy living in a den of thieves. A lot of Radar's "special needs" weren't in any books or online articles, ya just kinda figure out stuff ya gotta do to make sure he gets his equal share of stuff.

The 2nd shift treat dispensing looks familiar. We do the same thing when Jan breaks out the treats but Sam, being the largest, plants himself practically on Jan's toes so she can't overlook him.

Wow, I love that whole treat schedule thing. In my house I am an only dog so all the treat schedules are for me!

But Boru, I don't WANT belly rubs!

Wow...we have to sit and wait for treats, and any pushing results in the treats being put away for ten minutes. Teka is the one who can tell time, so she keeps Muzzer honest.

I love your photos! I want to expand my animal house and I think I'll need to impliment a treat schedule, because right now Milly thinks all treats are for her!

I'm glad I found your blog... I went to high school with a horse back rider from Bumpass, VA.

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.
