FRIDAY HAPPY HOUR

IT'S 5 O'CLOCK SOMEWHERE
Hey Hounders, Brutus Maximus, a.k.a.Max, here. It's Fruday and that means the work week is over and the dad will come home from work and want a wicked cold brewski (dad's originally fro Boston, hence the "wicked"). Dad and the rest of us guy will head down to the family room to watch a little ESPN on TV. We'll just kick back and let mom and the girls wait on us and keep shuffling those beers down to us. Here are some of our favorite Bumpass Hounds commercials by which to watch your most favorite sporting contest. Dad sometimes implies that it would be nice if us canine guys would get up off of the floor and go out and get jobs like the dogs in these favorite commercials of ours. We don't agree.

MONDAY MYSTERY GUEST:
This Monday Mystery Guest is, as always, chosen from amongst our followers listed at the top of our blog. These are the clues so far:
1. - The MG is NOT a quadruped.
2. - The MG is a pack member.
3. - The MG is a "special" GReat rescue.
4. - The MG and family are active in doing GReat things for homeless dogs.
Today's Clue
5. - The MG keeps one of those long sharp poles the Medeval Knights used close at hand. What's the name of that house for chickens to live on a farm? Who's argueably the #1 golfer in the world?

Life Lessons From Boru:

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

Dogs should not have jobs. Nor should cats.

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.
