RAINY DAY BLAHS

What A Wet Soggy "Stay In The House" Monday



Yesterday was a big contrast to Sunday when it was clear and 70+ degrees. Monday it was colder and all gray and then it started raining. Dad had put us out when he went to work but mom brought us all in when the rain started. We brought in some leaves and mud. Poor dad had scrubbed all of the floors and vacuumed the carpet on Saturday; oh well! So we spent the afternoon being obnoxious and just vegetating around the house. Hopefully we'll be outside tomorrow.

YOUR VOTE COULD HELP THIS DYNAMIC DUO

Radar, your Voting Team Captain, with my daily plea for your help. Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRR) was up to #189 in The Animal Rescue Site monetary grant voting on this (Tuesday) morning. I've been giving you reasons to vote for AHGRR and I'd like to give you two more. These are Bubba and Toby. They were taken in to rescue together and have always had each other as family. They have been at AHGRR for a while now because it isn't easy to place senior dogs and it's even harder to place a pair. These guys are living together now and always have in the past; we'd like to keep it that way in the future. If you can't adopt them, or sponsor them, or contribute to their care, perhaps you can vote for AHGRR. Here's the biography for Bubba and Toby:

<- Bubba and Toby have lived together their entire lives and are very bonded. We have decided that they need to be adopted as a pair. Please consider giving these two wonderful old boys a second chance. 9 - 10 year old Toby's and Bubba's owner had some bad luck and could no longer care for them, so they are looking for a new forever home to live out their "retirement" years. Bubba does have some arthritis, but seems to be handling the meds for it very well. Once he gets going, he is a ball fetching machine and LOVES to go for walks. He is housebroken and gets along with other pets. This grand old gent just needs a soft bed, a tennis ball, and love! Toby is very spry for an older dog, and loves to go outside and play and go for walks. He is housebroken and gets along with other pets. If you are interested in offering Bubba and Toby their retirement home, please submit an application which you can download from our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org) You will need to email or mail it to AHGRR.

Life Questions From Boru:
Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

Please go to this website:

To simplify things, you can actually just select "WV" in the state drop down menu and type "Capon" in for the City. Then click on "Search." The page will then do its' thing and will end up showing the location of AHGRR: Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc. Capon Bridge, WV 26714.

Mom says there are as many leaves on our living room floor as in the front yard. I think she's prone to exaggeration.
Oooh! I think I know the MG already!!! Should I guess already? I'll hold off - but will say "chow" for now... if you catch my drift!
Ha roo roo roo!
Play bows,

We will take all the rain we can get here! Sometimes when it rains, it snows up in the mountains and it is beautiful!

Walking in the rain, however, is a different story! :)

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.
