MONDAY MYSTERY GUEST

WE GOT TROUBLE, RIGHT HERE IN BUMPASS CITY.
Hey Hounders,
This is Jack. I've heard rumors that I am personally responsible for any and all trouble that occurs in The Bumpass Hounds house. I want to take this opportunity to assure you all that that is not the case at all. In fact, I'm seldom, if ever, involved in any incident that could be called trouble by the mom or the dad. Most of the trouble is caused by Radar, or the Newfs. Occasionally Sophie and/or Homer J. step out of line and Shelby Belle is always on the hot seat. Come to think of it, Abby (dabby-doo) is also frequently the target of mom's scoldings. J.E.B. and Jubal are always in the doghouse, figuratively. About the only name that is not called out during times of distress is mine, Jack. I'm a good boy. So let's put a stop to all the rumor and innuendo that the source of all trouble is Jack.

GETTING OUT THE VOTE:
Hey Hounders, Voting Team Captain Radar here. Thanks for putting up with the voting contest to get AHGRR some of that Animal Rescue Site grant money. Y'all know we started late and have to make up lost ground. We've moved up from #7 to #5 in West Virginia. We made #449 nationwide on Saturday, but this morning we were up to #387; how 'bout dem apples?. We're hoping to qualify AHGRR for at least a most votes in one week prize. Ms. Carol and Mr. Skip up at AHGRR rescued me so I owe them my life; this is the least I can do to try to help them help other dogs as bad off as I was. We are moving in the right direction because of YOUR VOTES, so PLEASE keep voting once a day per computer. However, our momentum seems to be slowing, so PLEASE be sure to vote today; pretty please with sugar on it. We hope y'all don't get upset by our daily reminder about voting. Please go to the bottom of this post to read all about it. Thank you all very much for helping us in this effort. You're helping to save lives and provide health care and shelter for homeless dogs while they're awaiting their furever homes. PLEASE consider posting the voting instructions on your blog and asking your readers to join us in our effort.

MONDAY MYSTERY GUEST:
Well, did you guess who the Monday Mystery guest was this week? Lots of you did; some very early in the week. Let's go over this week's clue. Remember, the MG is one of our followers listed at the top of our blog. These are the clues and their tie-in to this week's Monday Mystery Guest:
1.- The MG is like those 4 women that had a TV show and supposedly lived in Miami, FL, but is only one.
The MG is a Golden Girl
2.- The MG is a NorCal GRReat dog.
The MG is a rescue dog from Northern california Golden Retriever Rescue.
3.- The MG lives where you can be either a winer or a whiner (perhaps both).
The MG lives in the San Francisco Bay area, where there are more than a few whiners, and not far from the Napa Valley where there are more than a few winers.
4.- The MG actually practices obedience and thinks that Tony Bennett left his heart somewhere close by.
The MG participates in obedience competitions (Why?) and often practices and lives near San Francisco..
5.- The MG considers a Rose as a friend.
Sierra Rose is one of the MG's best friends.
6.- Although the MG's name is the same as the resident whitch lived there, the MG does not live at the 1164 Morning Glory Circle.
The lead character from the old TV Show "Bewitched" lived at 1164 Morning Glory Circle; her name was Samantha.
7.- The MG loves to take hikes along the dikes of a local reservoir.
The MG frequently walks the dikes around the reservoir and writes about in in the blog.

O.K.. here's the secret identity of the Monday Mystery Guest: it is none other than:

This weeks Monday Mystery Guest is one of our 85 followers so that narrows it down considerably. Here's your first clue:
1.- The MG is hard to see in a snow storm.

Damn I was wrong.

Teka is responsible for all the trouble around here. Interestingly, there is NO debate on that, and she is quite proud to take the applause.

Well, sometimes she blames stuff on the sqrrrrls.

Samantha is such a beautiful girl and has such a great family - we love her - thank you for featuring her!!!

Jack, we know a few Jacks, furry and human, and they all have a tough time with that name. Seems like they can be quite the handful. Maybe you need to put in for a new name.

woos, the OP Pack

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.
