RUN FREE LITTLE ANNE

LITTLE ANNE
a.k.a. "Flash"

Hey Hounders,
In 2006 we all moved here to Lake Anna and left behind a few close friends that lived in one of the houses next to our old house. Mom and dad moved in to the house with Rusty, Penny, Bear and Kodi. While there Jubal, J.E.B. , Gordon, Alex, Boru, Jenny, Chance, Shelby Belle and Jack joined the pack. Abby, Max, Shiloh and Abby have joined us since we moved here. The 3 original dogs, Rusty, Penny and Bear, and the cat Kodi all stayed behind at the other house as their spirits had all gone to The Rainbow Bridge. Chance and Gordon are here at the lake house but their spirits have also gone to The Rainbow Bridge. Shortly after mom and dad moved into the old house the neighbors adopted a black Labrador Retriever that they named Little Anne. Little Anne was a flash runner and Chance loved to play with her. Penny, acting as neighborhood fun police, would bark at Little Anne as she ran by. Little Anne was a great friend to all the Bumpass Hounds that lived in the old house. She was always more obedient and better behaved than us and our dad used to frequently mention that fact to us. Little Anne was loved by her mom and dad and 2 peep sisters. Last Saturday Little Anne went to The Rainbow Bridge with no pain or suffering. She had developed a cancer just like Penny, Chance and Gordon. Today we got a comment from Little Anne's mom. Here is what she said:

"Rusty, Penny, Chance , Old Bear Dog, Gordon, and Little Anne are all enjoying fair weather and green fields together. What a sight that would be, back together again, Little Anne and her boyfriend Chancey Pants romping together!"

Run free Little Anne. You are loved and deeply missed by all of us who knew you. We will howl at the big DOG in the sky to ask him to watch over you and our brothers and sisters who are there with you. Have fun gang.

We always hate to hear of a furry leaving for the bridge because they leave lots of tears behind and are greatly missed.

We are so sorry to hear about your friend, Annie. Our momma is always saying that the good dogs should live as long as the nasty people who should have gone a long time ago☺

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.
