SUNDAY FUNNIES

WHO'S DOING GOOD? LET US KNOW.
Hey Hounders and other casual readers. You might already know about our TBH&K BRAVO-ZULU Award. We're pretty stingy about giving it out. We've been blogging for almost 2 year, 402 posts so far, and we've only awarded the BZ three times. Our now departed buddy Spencer inspired us to create the BZ and he was the 1st recipient; Spencer's award is now held by Dog By Nature. We also awarded a BZ to our buddy Mogley, and we recently awarded a BZ to every one's buddy, Khyra. (Stop by these blogs, read through a few posts and you'll immediately see why they were awarded TBH&K BRAVO-ZULU.) That's it; just those 3. The award is given to the blog site, associated pets and associated people, that go above and beyond in their efforts to help homeless animals. It can be by volunteering at a shelter, doing transports, fostering, or being advocates, etc. There are no set rules or benchmarks. We feel that if you do these things it should be mentioned in your blog, not kept a secret, in that it's not just tooting your own horn, but it can be an inspiration to encourage others to ask themselves "what can I do?" We've had a couple of bloggers write to us or leave us a comment suggesting blog sites worthy of a BZ award. We've thought it over, and we agree. After all, we don't read everyone DWB post, although it often seems that we do. So we'd like to set aside a special week each month to take nominations for our BZ. We feel that a few guidelines are required to keep from hurting any ones feelings. We will not accept or consider nominations made as comments to our blogsite. If someone is nominated in a comment and doesn't win a BZ, that doesn't mean that you're not deserving, it just means that you weren't considered. All nominations will have to be submitted to us at our email bumpasshounds@hughes.net We would like the nominator to identify themselves and give us the blogsite address of the nominee so that we can look at the nominated blogsite. We of course will need to know why you think the nominee is deserving of receiving our coveted BRAVO-ZULU Award. The award is NOT to be redistributed or passed along to other sites. We know who we give it to and intend to post a recipients list on our blog. We know that there are lots of good doers out there that deserve recognition even if they don't feel that they do. So this is a fresh start. If you've previously made a comment on our blog or sent us an email please dust it off and resubmit it by email. We will accept nominations from today (Sunday) through to next Saturday night. Remember, there isn't any money, any prizes, any bailouts or other material reward associated reward that goes along with the BRAVO-ZULU Award. Heck, we don't even send out a certificate; we just give our permission to the recipient to download the award off of our blogsite; how cheap can we get? What does go with the BZ Award is our recognition, and the recognition of your fellow bloggers, that the winner's efforts to help out animals in need has not gone unnoticed and is in fact very much appreciated by those of us that care (unfortunately, not every one cares). So we look forward to awarding our 4th TBH&K BRAVO-ZULU Award in the near future. Of course it's our award so we can, and do, reserve the right to award it to whomever we see fit or to not award it at all. We hope we ain't sounding too pompass, just bumpass.

FUNNY PANELS

MONDAY MYSTERY GUEST:
Remember, the MG is one of our followers listed at the top of our blog. These are the clues we've given y'all so far for this week's Monday Mystery Guest:
1.- The MG is hard to see in a snow storm.
2.- To us, the MG is what Gilligan was to the Skipper.
3.- The MG ponders: "To foo or not to foo; that is the question."
4.- The AKC suggests that the MG "is a small, sturdy, white powder puff of a dog whose merry temperament is evidenced by his plumed tail....." (How can they use "sturdy' and "puff" in the same descriptive sentence? - Duh.)
5.- Is The MG really "a curly toy dog" as the literal translation of the MG's french breed name suggests?
6.- The MG's blog is simply a folly.


Today's Clue:
7.- The MG's name rythms with: 1. a color, 2. something you sleep on, 3. an FBI agent, 4. to get married, 5. a really heavy metal, 6. something not alive, 7. what's on top of your shoulders, 8. Mr. Beatty's name, 9. the Clampett patriarch, 10, Mr. Turner's name, 11, escaped, and 12. words that have been spoken.



Get your guesses in by commenting. We'll announce this week's MG tomorrow and start a new Monday Mystery Guest.


*************
BORU'S GAMES FOR ALL YOU OLD PEOPLE:
1. Sag, you're It.
2. Hide and go pee.
3. 20 questions shouted into your good ear.
4. Kick the bucket
5. Red Rover, Red Rover, the nurse says Bend Over.
6. Musical recliners.
7. Simon says - something incoherent.
8. Pin the Toupee on the bald guy

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.
