SATURDAY TRANSPORT AND STUFF

TODAY IS AN AHGRR TRANSPORT DAY
Hey Hounders,
Homer J. here with all the news that's fit to print; and some that isn't. Dad got an e-mail from Ms. Carol up at Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary asking him if he could possibly pick up a senior GR, that is partially blind and almost totally deaf, and transport him from Troy, VA to AHGRR. Dad didn't know where Troy, VA was so he googled it and found out mom drives by it going and coming to LVT school. It's only about an hour away and it's on the way from here to AHGRR. So naturally dad said yes. Tomorrow he'll leave here at about 0900 to be at the Fluvanna SPCA at around 1000. Then he'll have about an other hour more of driving to get up to AHGRR and then then he'll be headed home and is expecting to arrive home by 1400. We told dad to bring the camera along and to get lots of photos with which to report on Monday's blog.

PLEASE LET ME KISS SOMEBODY'S BABY
Hey Hounders, Radar, Voting Team Captain here. dad says that ya gotta kiss babies in order to get votes, so send me your baby and I'll kiss them. Now here's our voting update. We're still ranked #4 in West Virginia :-( Yesterday we were #250 :-) Today we've moved all the way up to #249 position national. I know that is a "slight" improvement but I'd sure hope to have down better. Did YOU vote yesterday? Do you have all your friends voting for AHGRR? Why not ask them to vote also? They already probably think you're wacko so they'd probably do it just to placate you. Please keep voting because every little vote counts and helps. We are really thankful to y'all for doing this. Please vote now and then continue with the blog. You can read all about it at the bottom of this post.

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.
5. - The MG keeps one of those long sharp poles that the Medieval Knights used close at hand. What's the name of that house for chickens to live in on a farm? Who's arguably the #1 golfer in the world?
Today' Clue:

6. - The MG has probably had recent influence from Italian Tourists.

PLEASE VOTE FOR AHGRR
Please go to this website:
The webpage is somewhat temperamental but the above link is correct. Please give the page enough time to fully load to "Done" before proceeding. Then we want you to enter the following red data into the boxes provided:
Shelter Name: Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue
Country: United States
State: WV
City: Capon Bridge
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. And, more importantly, a "VOTE" button will appear. Click on the "VOTE" button. You will then have to identify a particular animal in a photo to confirm your vote; this eliminates machine voting. You then will be thanked for your vote to indicate that your vote has registered. You can cast one vote every day for your favorite rescue organization. Voting began on September 14th, 2009, and ends at midnight (PST) on December 20th, 2009. The more friends you can rally to vote for your favorite rescue organization, the better its chances of winning. Every vote, every day counts - shelters can pull ahead even during the last few days with enough support. Get people involved! The homeless pets awaiting adoption at Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary are counting on us.

Radar, if we had a baby, we would send him to you. Tell your dad to drive carefully and take lots of pictures, if those are not mutually exclusive./

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.
