MONDAY MADNESS

JACK'S FUNNY FACE FOR HAPPY HEARTS

Hey Hounders,
Jack here. The guys made me post this picture of the funny face I made when dad was giving me my big
Happy Hearts Cookie last week. I was just licking my lips in anticipation of that Happy Heart Cookie goodness that I was about to enjoy. You'd have done the same thing if a Happy Hearts Cookie was being held out in front of you.
Yesterday was a BEAUTIFUL autumn day here at Lake Anna. The trees haven't really changed yet, they're just staring to, and the big barrage of falling leaves hasn't begun yet either, but the temperature and smells were pretty much indicators the fall is really here. It was so nice that mom opened all the windows in the house and dad put out all of us dogs. That's right, ALL of us dogs. Jubal and her highness Ms. Sophie were exiled to the paddock with the rest of us. And here's the biggest news; Radar was allowed to come out in the paddock with us unsupervised. Dad told us to take care of him and make sure that he didn't get into any trouble or mischief. He sure had a GReat time exploring the yard. Maybe he'll be able to come out with us again because he really seemed to enjoy exploring what is a whole new world opening up to him.

RADAR EXPLORES THE PADDOCK


MONDAY MYSTERY GUEST:
Time for one last clues about this week' s Monday Mystery Guest. Remember, the MG is one of the 74 followers listed at the top of our blog page. The other clues given so far have been:
1. - The MG is an intercontinental world traveler who really gets around.

The MG's profile says he has lived in China, Australia, Korea, Singapore, The Netherlands and now Italy.
2. -The MG has a golden heart and is like one of us.
The MG is a Golden Retriever.
3. -The MG has seen shrimp on the barbie and probably eaten chop suey.
Shrimp on the barbie is from Australia and, although invented in the U.S., chop suey has connotations of China.
4. -The MG liked seoul music for a while.
The capital of South Korea is Seoul.
5. -The MG has seen city slings and Raffles fired from a long bar amongst the spitting merlion.
The Singapore Sling was originate at The Long Bar in The Raffles Hotel in Singapore where Merlion fountain adorns the harbor.
6.-The MG's profile say that he has a fondness for food and will eat just about anything. He's probably chewed on wooden shoes but now he'll chew on pizza.
The MG just this past week moved from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, to Milan, Italy.

OK. What was your guess? That's absolutely correct. Last week's Monday Mystery Guest is none other than (the other) HOMER, The Golden Retriever.


This week's Mystery Guest is, as always, selected from among the 74 followers to our blog listed above. If you get a chance, go visit the blogs of our MMG and tell 'em we sent you over. We don't want to lose any readers but some of y'all might find these guys blogs are also interesting; implying that ours is interesting. :-) There will not be any repeater and we already had Pooka of Nanock and Pooka, Huffle Mawson - Explorer Cat, The Washington Woos, Clive - Assistance Dog for Autism, Khyra, and Homer The Golden Retriever. Here are the first clues for this week's Monday Mystery Guest:

1.- The MG is from the Professor Marvel's old stomping ground.

2.- Something about the MG makes you think the MG was in the Army, but the MG is not.

It was so satisfying to see Radar out exploring. Of course, my heart is with that little man always when I recall my Prince and the wonderful times we had together.

Congrats Radar, hanging with the gang. My happiest days are unsupervised with the fellas. If the peeps only knew what we did behind their backs.
You should come to S.Cal and we will teach you how to dock dive, if a guy with 3 legs can do it so can you.

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.
