FRIDAY'S FOTOS

OUR DAD MADE US DO IT.
Hey Hounders.
Our Dad has been acting peculiar lately; well, more peculiar than usual. He has been whistling a tune he says is called "Anchor's Aweigh." The word "weigh" in this sense comes from the archaic word meaning to heave, hoist or raise. "Aweigh" means that that action has been completed. The anchor is aweigh when it is pulled from the bottom. This event is duly noted in the ship's log. Not to be confused with Anchors Away which would mean that the anchor has gone someplace. Evidently dad went to college (?) where they played this song a whole lot because he says he heard it just about every day at some place called "formation" that he used to go to before he had breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Anyway, he made us post the words and some photos that he calls "spirit pictures." We thought spirit pictures were when you took a picture of a Masai tribesman in Kenya if you didn't give him a dollar first, but evidently we were misinformed.

Stand Navy down the field, sails set to the sky.
We'll never change our course, so Army you steer shy-y-y-y.
Roll up the score, Navy, Anchors Aweigh.
Sail Navy down the field and sink the Army, sink the Army Grey.
-
Get underway, Navy, Decks cleared for the fray,
We'll hoist true Navy Blue So Army down your Grey-y-y-y.
Full speed ahead, Navy; Army heave to,
Furl Black and Grey and Gold and hoist the Navy, hoist the Navy Blue
-
Blue of the Seven Seas; Gold of God's great sun
Let these our colors be Till all of time be done-n-n-ne,
By Severn shore we learn Navy's stern call:
Faith, courage, service true With honor over, honor over all.

CAN YOU FIND THE PAINTED MAN?

MONDAY MYSTERY GUEST:
The Monday Mystery Guest is one of our followers as listed at the top of our blog. Here are the clues for this week, including yesterday, which we didn't post, and for today:
1.- The MG is the same as the number of Stooges.
2.- The MG is really GReat, like a lot of us.

3.- The MG's names have an international quality: one is like and Italian statue, one is like the inhabitants of what is now Mexico before the Spanish exploration, and one has a name that is reminiscent of a crisp tortilla filled with ground beef, shredded lettuce and cheese and chopped tomatoes.
4. The MG is probably very fond of the gentleman who can be seen and heard by clicking HERE.

Today's Clue:

5.- The MG's mom and dad recently visited US.

WE NEED YOUR VOTE
Radar, your Voting Team Captain, with my daily plea for your help. Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRR) was up to #169 in The Animal Rescue Site monetary grant voting this morning. I've been trying to give you reasons to vote for AHGRR and I'd like to give you one more; his name is Tripper-Favorite. Tripper has been patiently waiting for his new furever home for some time now. Perhaps you could find room in your heart and home for Tripper. Maybe you can help sponsor Tripper while he waits for his new home. Even if you can't, you can still vote for AHGRR and possibly help Tripper-Favorite. Here's a biography on Tripper:
Tripper is one of the best dogs we have ever had the pleasure of helping here at AHGRR. He's about 4 - 5 years old, and has personality PLUS, PLUS, PLUS. This smaller sized Golden mix boy is guaranteed to make you smile. Tripper came to us heartworm positive, but he has been treated, neutered, and is ready to go home with some lucky person. Tripper-Favorite! is up-to-date with routine shots. If you would like to offer Tripper 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

That is really interesting about the song - I thin I always thought it was "away" like they were leaving. And that is a super cool spirit picture too!

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.
