COMMAND PERFORMANCE
Hey Hounders,
It's me, Alex. Y'all may not know that I am evidently considered to be a professional singer. Professionals get paid for exhibiting their talent. Well whenever I sing, I've noticed that either mom or dad, or both, immediately offer me either treats, chicken or dinner. Of course this tends to bring my concerts to an unscheduled finnish, but a guy's gotta eat you know. Anyway, I usually sing while parading through the house. The other day one of my big fans, Radar, obviously wanted me to sing to him so I graciously obliged. Please excuse the stage from which I was performing, but none other than the very same Radar has completely destroyed the low voltage patio lights along the front walk from the porch steps to the driveway and, at mom's request, dad was in the process of installing motion sensor flood lights on the front of the house and the detached garage in order to illuminate the walkway, front stairs an driveway for mom; hence the tools and supplies on the stage during my aria to Radar. I hope that you enjoy my "command performance."

HOW GOES THE VOTE:
Hey Hounders, it's your faithful Team Captain Radar. As always, I want to thank you again very much for supportting (putting up with) the voting contest to get AHGRR some of the Animal Rescue Site grant money. We didn't start until the 6th week of the contest and have been playing catch-up ever since. In 12 days we sit at #7 in West Virginia and #414 nationwide. 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. Hopefully, with your help, we will continue to move 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. It might help if y'all post about this on your blogs and/or especially to your Face Book and My Space friends. Just take a deep relaxing breath and try not to 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:
Remember, the MG is one of our followers listed at the top of our blog. These are the clues we gave y'all so far for 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.
2.- The MG is a NorCal GRReat dog.
3.- The MG lives where you can be eithera winer or a whiner (perhaps both).4.- The MG actually practices obedience and thinks that Tony Bennett left his heart somewhere close by.
5.- The MG considers a Rose as a friend.


Today's Clue:
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.

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.
