WHY YOUR VOTE MATTERS
Hey Hounders, it's the blind Golden Retriever, Radar, with my daily sales pitch as to why it is important for YOU to vote. It is very important that you check out the last item at the bottom of the post about voting for Almost Heaven Golden Retrievers Rescue & Sanctuary (AHGRR) in The Animal Rescue Site monetary grant balloting. AHGRR is the reason I'm alive and here to bug you; they're the reason that Homer J. and Abby are here too. They also rescued Gordon who is our beloved brother at The Rainbow Bridge, AHGRR could sure use the grant money to pay for food and medicines and veterinary care for the homeless dogs awaiting a furever home. AHGRR is up to #196 nationwide this morning. If you can sponsor a dog or maybe make a donation, please visit the AHGRR website
http://www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org/
If you can't do those things then maybe you could take a minute or two and vote for AHGRR as shown at the bottom of this post. Need a reason; use Lizzie. Lizzie has been at AHGRR for a while waiting to be adopted into her furever home. It
sure would be a swell holiday for her if she could find her furever home or maybe at least find a temporary sponsor. Remember, dogs are NOT Christmas presents, they are a lifetime commitment. Here's the biography on Lizzie:

8 - 10 year old Lizzie was abandoned on a country road. She's a great girl who will undergo dental treatment soon. She doesn't have a lot of teeth left, but she does just fine at meal time - - - - - - This girl will chase kitties. She's an older girl who just wants to find that forever home she so truly deserves.
Lizzie is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and spayed/neutered If you would like to offer Lizzie a forever home, please submit an application which you can download from our website (http://www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org/). Please email it to us.

ABBY'S EASY TIPS FOR A PET-SAFE HOLIDAY SEASON

It's your pal Abby (Dabby-Do) with some today's helpful hint to help keep us pet healthy and safe during this holiday seasons. Starting on Thanksgiving things might be busy around the house here in the U.S. for the next few weeks. There may be parties and decorating going on in the house. Sometimes we pets can be a little too inquisitive and stick our noses, and mouths, where they don't belong. It's really up to our care givers to take a few precautions to make sure that we all have an enjoyable, and safe, holiday season so please make sure that your peeps read these tips from the SPCA.
Easy Tips for a Pet-Safe Holiday Season
“As you prepare for your holiday celebrations,” says Dr. Steven Hansen, Senior Vice President of ASPCA Animal Health Services, “remember to be wary of foods and traditions that can bring potential dangers to companion animals.” In honor of the joyous season to come, ASPCA poison control experts offer these essential tips for having pets at the party in a safe way:
That Holiday Glow.
When you leave the room, put the candles out! Animals can easily knock lit candles over, causing a fire, and curious cats are particularly at risk of getting burned by candle flames. Also, be sure to use appropriate candle holders, placed on stable surfaces.
If your dog or cat accidentally ingests any potentially harmful products and you need emergency advice, please consult your veterinarian or the ASPCA’s Animal
Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435 (a fee applies) or http://www.aspca.org/apcc.org/apcc - Abby and The Bumpass Hounds and Kitties

MONDAY MYSTERY GUEST:
The 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 could be a barber shop singing group.
A quartet.

2. - The MG helps those that are color blind.
One of the four (Dave) helps the mom pick out fabric for making bags because mom is color blind.
3. - The MG has its' own meteorologist.
One of the four (Ammy) is a wonderful weather guesser.
4. - The MG is like a newspaper; black and white and also red.
Two are black and white and two are red and white. All are magnificent Siberians.
5. - To visit the land of the MG one need only click the heels of their ruby slippers together and say "There's no place like home" three times. But beware of Miss Gulch.
Just like in "The Wizard of Oz" the MG resides in Kansas.

6.- The MG lives in a town named after a cocktail made with whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters. Commonly used whiskeys include rye (the traditional choice), Canadian whisky, bourbon and Tennessee whiskey. Proportions of whiskey to vermouth vary, from a very sweet 1:1 ratio to a much drier 4:1 ratio. The cocktail is often stirred with ice and strained into a cocktail glass, where it is garnished with a Maraschino cherry with a stem. The drink is also frequently s
erved on the rocks in an old-fashioned glass (lowball glass).
The recipe for a "Manhattan" as in Manhattan, Kansas.
7. - Although the MG is beautiful and handsome, on the evening of December 12th there will be a solemn air of gloom and disappointment throughout the MG's abode. The MG will be wooing "The Party's Over" in 4 part harmony.- GN,BA
The MG is a supporter of the Army football team of ka
ydets from the U.S. Military Academy at west Point, NY. That team is scheduled to be keelhauled by the Navy football team of midshipmen from the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, MD. on December 12th. GN, BA = Go Navy, Beat Army.

Well how many guessed that the Mystery Guest is the Army of Four (Ao4) who reside just out Fort Riley in Manhattan, Kansas. Dave, Storm, Ammy and Zim are our blogging buddies and friendly rivals in inter-service competition.

Storm, Ammy, Dave & Zim
THE ARMY OF FOUR

Why does some one believe you when you say that there are four billion stars; but have to check when you say that the paint is still wet?

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.
