HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

MONDAY MYSTERY GUEST:
Remember, the MG is one of our followers listed at the top of our blog. These are the clues we gave y'all so far to this week's Monday Mystery Guest:
1.- The MG is a "rescue" that was within minutes of "termination."
According to his profile, the MG was only minutes away from getting euthanized when he was "rescued" by Golden Retriever rescue of the Rockies.
2.- The MG has something in common with a particular Australian beer.
Foster's is a popular Australian beer and that's what the MG does too, he fosters dogs while they are awaiting their new furever homes.
3. - The MG shares a home with a girl who is beautiful in Italy.
Bella is Italian for bautiful and that's the name of the MG's sister, Bella.
4.- The MG probably likes John Denver music.
Denver is in Colorado and that's the state where the MG lives.
5.- There are Zoomies (and Doolies) south of the MG.
Zoomies are Air Force people, at least according to our Navy pilot dad. The U.S. Air Force Academy is in Colorado Springs, south of Denver. First year student there are known as Doolies.
6.- The MG is a GRRReat advocate.
The MG is a big supportter of Golden retriever rescue of the rockies (GRRR).
7.- The MG is "BZ."
The MG was the first winner of the highly coveted, hard to get, BRAVO-ZULU AWARD IN MEMORY OF SPENCER awarded by The Bumpass Hounds.
Everyone have your answers. Time for pencils down as we announce that last week's Monday Mystery Guest is MOGLEY who's blog is A Dog's Life, the real story.

Here's the first clue for this week's Monday Mystery Guest.
1. Some would say that the MG is "The End."


A SMALL FAVOR IF YOU PLEASE
Hey Hounders,
We don't know if you know Huffle Mawson's very good friend Cap'n Maverick the Pirate. He is in a Halloween costume contest and needs everyone's help. If you could all please go and vote for him (you are only allowed to vote once) between now and the end of October, we'd really appreciate it. The good Cap'n has promised to donate some of his winnings to dog and cat rescue, if he gets the votes in. So please help Cap'n Maverick, and help other dogs and kitties who need it! Yet another way that you can help make a difference.


UPCOMING DATES OF NOTE:


Brother Jubal's birthday is October 22, 1999 so his 10th birthday anniversary is coming up.





Sister Sophie's birthday is November 1, 2001 so her 8th birthday aniversary is approaching; her "gottcha day" is October 28, 2008 so she'll be a Bumpass Hound for 1 year next week.

Brother Alex's birthday is October 1, 2001 so Alex was 8 years old the beginning of this month.



OUR BLOG SONG (WONDERFULL WORLD/OVER THE RAINBOW)
The artist is the late Hawaiian folk singer Israel Kamakawiwo'le. (this song and his version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow has been featured in at least 3 films. In the movie Meet Joe Black for the end credits, in Finding Forrester towards the ending part when Sean Connery has already died, and for the Lucy (Drew Barrymore) Wake Up scene towards the end of Fifty First Dates.

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.
- The Bumpass Hounds and Kitties

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.
