NEW LIFE

AT THE ALPACA FARM
Hey Hounders,
Jenny here with some new old news. It's new because we haven't told any of you about it yet but it's old because it happened a few weeks ago before mom and dad went on the Disney Cruise trip. Mom was home one Saturday afternoon when the phone rang. It was Mr. John from Sorbie Farm where mom helps out with the alpacas. Seems that Mr John and his wife, Ms. Sarah were on their way back to the farm from the University of Pennsylvania vet hospital in Philadelphia with one of their alpacas, Sensation. She had to have surgery and they were bringing her home in their transport trailer to recover at home. One of their other alpacas, Zoe, was supposed to be at least a week from delivering her first cria. Unfortunately Zoe had decided to have her baby that afternoon. Mr. John said that they were still a few hours from the farm and asked mom if she could go over to the farm to make sure everything was OK with Zoe and the new cria. The farm is only about 10 minutes away from our house so of course mom rushed right over. Mom did some of her vet tech stuff and talked with Mr. John on the phone a couple of times to make sure that she did everything that Mr. John and Ms. Sarah would do if they had been there. The new cria was a bit on the small side, but so was Zoe when she had been born. The cria started nursing and after mom gave Zoe a shot she started producing ample milk for the baby. Mom didn't get home until late that night but she said she felt all good inside about having been able to help out with Zoe. The next day mom and dad went over to the farm to see the baby which had by then been named Mr. D.J. Below we have posted picture of the mom, Zoe, with her lollipop face, and her beautiful cria, Mr. D.J. If you click on them you should be able to see an enlarged version.

Life Lesson From Boru:
The statistics on sanity is that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

I've seen alpaca babies born and if folks didn't hold me back I'd be hugging and kissing on those little ones and getting kicked in the head by their mommas!

Well, I can't even find ONE friend that isn't a little coo-coo, now what do I do?

Oh WOW! those are cuties for sure, for sure.

Good thing we can't have one of those in our yard in Mayemphis, muzzer is gagagagaga over both of them. We told her they bite and kick. She said, "Teka bites, Gussie kicks, so what?" Maybe we should send her to Bumpass Farm to find out.

We missed out on so much while we were gone...but we are almost caught up...whew.

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.
