TRUE COLOURS THURSDAY

VOTING PROGRESS:
Hey Hounders, it's Team Captain Radar. Thank you very much for putting up with the voting contest to get AHGRR some of that Animal Rescue Site grant money. We didn't start until the 6th week of the contest and have been playing serious catch-up since a week ago last Monday. In 10 days we've made it to #7 in West Virginia and #449 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. We are moving 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; pretty please with sugar on it. We hope y'all don't 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.

Now on with blog business:

TODAY IS TRUE COLOURS THURSDAY
If you'd like to play along, contact the hostess BLUE.
The Colour for today is:









Winnie the Pooh is almost canary yellow but his umbrella is already there. The U.S. Navy had a yellow "target' plane in The Blue Angels right after WWII.









-
Yellow is a common air-sea rescue color because its' contrast makes it easier to see in the ocean. Here is a canary yellow life raft and a life jacket.













A canary "Yellow Submarine" brings The Beatles album and movie "Yellow Submarine" to mind.









-
Here's some canary yellow heavy equipment: a Union Pacific snow-plow locomotive and a a Honolulu fire engine.












Here we have a great Big Bird that is not a canary but is canary yellow. Mustard is just about canary yellow.













In 1957 there was a movie called "Old Yeller" which is old U.S. slang for Old Yellow. It made lots of little kids cry and have bad dreams. Yellow boots are cool, especially if they're packed with yellow snow.









Tweety Bird is canary yellow and so are canaries.










The U.S. Navy's WWII Trainer was called The yellow peril. Yellow Jacket Wasps are almost canary yellow.









A canary yellow Corvette and a cat wearing a canary yellow rain slicker. he looks like the Gloucester fisherman.









-

-
Cristiano Ronaldo is a Portuguese football (soccer) player wearing a canary yellow jersey. This Golden is wearing a yellow life jacket.












-
Actress Terri Hatcher and singer Elton John are making fashion statement in canary yellow saying they are for the birds.

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 a winer or a whiner.
Today's Clue
4.- The MG actually practices obedience and thinks that Tony Bennett left his heart somewhere close by.

Life Question From Boru:

How much deeper would the ocean be without sponges?

PLEASE VOTE FOR AHGRR
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 (not always as easy as it sounds); 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 (we suggest Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue). 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! Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary is counting on us.

What about a Piper Cub? Our Missouri grandpa has a yellow Bellanca Scout. It used to say "D Bumble B" on it, but when grandpa had it recovered, he didn't have that logo painted back on it.

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.
