BUMMER

I WAS WRONG. Hey Hounders,
Well, it's Yakety-Jack again. I was close with my guess about going on vacation yesterday; close but no cigar (what does that mean anyway?). Mom and dad packed the car and when we tried to get in the Suburban to go along they had to explain (lie?) to us that dogs aren't allowed on this vacation because they're going on a big boat. The bottom line is that they're gone and we're NOT. Ms. Mary and Ms. Tammy will be here to make sure that we get fed and have exercise and get bedded down for the night. Mom and dad said that they were going to our sister Sarah's house to pick her and her husband, The Beel (his name is the same as dad's so they call him that so they know who they're talking about) and drive all day to a place called Port Canaveral. It will take them about 14 hours to get there and they should be there about 7:00 PM so you do the math to figure out when they're leaving. The boat, The S.S. Wonder, gets "underway" (dad's Navy lingo) tomorrow afternoon. They're staying in a fancy-smancy hotel tonight. The boat is supposed to be back to Port Canaveral on Thursday morning. So you'd think they'd be home Thursday night wouldn't you. But NO, they're going over to Walt Disney World and they are gonna stay in another "on property" resort and won't drive home until Saturday. They told us that they'd be home after 10:00 PM Saturday night.

Never trust a human to tell the truth. They'll usually sneak off without you.

You don't want to go to Disney World any way. All the puppies there wear pants!

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.
