BEAT ARMY TRUE COLOURS THURSDAY

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



Today's colour is aqua. That's a light greenish blue. It would fall somewhere between "Blue Green" and "Blue" on the colour wheel. We looked around the house and couldn't find any good aqua specimens. J.E.B. has a kinda aqua collar, but it's brown from all the paddock mud right now so you'll have to take our word on it. So we're using stuff that we found on the internet. We looked for an aqua "BEAT ARMY" sign but couldn't find one.
























































ARMY-NAVY GAME: 2 DAY
S

****************
ARMY-NAVY GAME: 3 DAYS

In order to minimize the pain and suffering to our readers we have convinced our most loving, kind and gentle dad to put all of his Army-Navy Game stuff in one section of the blog post so that in those extremely rare circumstances where someone might possibly, for some insane reason, not be interested in THE Game they can simply skip this section. Remember, this week all Plebe vocalizations to any officers and upper classmen begin and end with the last two words to The Star Spangled Banner (our National Anthem), which are:
"BEAT ARMY"

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!
Radar, your Voting Team Captain, with my daily plea for your HELP! Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRR) has moved to the #2 position for West Virginia shelters and to #152 overall in The Animal Rescue Site monetary grant voting this morning. We only have a little over a week to go so we obviously need lots of help to get into winning range. We'd like to win the top spot in West Virginia. It would be a lot of help if y'all could solicit support from others to help us achieve our goal. Again we ask that you please consider appealing to your social network friends on Facebook, My Space, etc. Our mom simply asked her facebook friends to vote and she got all positive responses. Please do it for the homeless pups during this Christmas Season of love and charity. I've been trying to give you reasons to vote for AHGRR and I'd like to give you yet one more. This dog, like all the others, is not just a nameless stray wandering through the fields, his name is Ronin. Ronin has been waiting in shelter for his new furever home for a little while now. Perhaps you could find room in your heart and home for Ronin. Maybe you can help sponsor Ronin while he waits for his new home. Perhaps a small Christmas or holiday donations to AHGRR would give you that Santa feeling that people seem to enjoy having; just look at that fabulous face and imagine that you're looking into Ronin's warm, loving brown eyes. How can you say no to him. Even if you can't, you can still vote for AHGRR and possibly help Ronin. Here's a biography on Ronin:
2 - 3 year old Ronin is just a happy soul looking for the next "party". He knows a few commands and is housebroken. He needs a home where he can get rid of some of his energy - someone who would like to go for walks or throw a ball would be perfect for Ronin. He will chase kitties. If you would like to offer Ronin a forever home, please submit and application which you can download from our website (www.almostheaven-golden-retriever-rescue.org) Please email or mail it to AHGRR. - Radar and The Bumpass Hounds and Kitties

ABBY'S EASY TIPS FOR A PET-SAFE HOLIDAY SEASON

It's your pal Abby (Dabby-Do) with some today's helpful hint to help keep us pet healthy and safe during this holiday seasons. Starting on Thanksgiving things might be busy around the house here in the U.S. for the next few weeks. There may be parties and decorating going on in the house. Sometimes we pets can be a little too inquisitive and stick our noses, and mouths, where they don't belong. It's really up to our care givers to take a few precautions to make sure that we all have an enjoyable, and safe, holiday season so please make sure that your peeps read these tips from the SPCA.

Easy Tips for a Pet-Safe Holiday Season
“As you prepare for your holiday celebrations,” says Dr. Stev
en Hansen, Senior Vice President of ASPCA Animal Health Services, “remember to be wary of foods and traditions that can bring potential dangers to companion animals.” In honor of the joyous season to come, ASPCA poison control experts offer these essential tips for having pets at the party in a safe way:

Oh, Christmas Tree. Cats often see trees as fabulous climbing posts. be sure to securely anchor your tree so it doesn't tip and fall, causing possible injury to your pet. Also keep in mind that tree water may contain fertilizers that can cause stomach upset if ingested. Stagnent tree water can also act as a breeding ground for bacteria, and if ingested, a pet may suffer nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

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.
