TERRIBLE TERRAIN TUESDAY

TOURING THE TERRAIN

Hey Hounders,
Well we don't know purple ash from white ash. Dad says that sometimes we're a real red ash but that's the extent of our knowledge of tree. We don't have any evergreens on our property; they're all broadleafs of one kind or anuother. We think that the big ones are mostly oaks. So we identfy them by location: the big tree out front by the swing, the big tree out front by the well, the big tree out by the antenna farm, etc. Things are starting to change color around here as the days get shorter. Our green trees are turning, red, yellow and brown. A lot of them are still green, however.

This is green tree out by the antenna just about next to the yellow one. That's our house in the background. ->

<- Wood roses (fungus) growing on the old stump out front by the well head.

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.
