HOMEWARD BOUND SUNDAY

MOM AND DAD ARE COMING HOME
Hey Hounders,
No Sunday Funnies today, they couldn't deliver the paper because of the snow; Khyra must be loving this cuz we all sure are. Heck, J.E.B. practices snow angels all year and only gets to make them once or twice a year if he's lucky. Well, he can make them now but mom and dad aren't here to watch and take pictures of him doing it. We sure hope that Mom and Dad get home before all this snow melts.
Ms. Mary called mom and dad tonight to see if they wanted to stay another day in Florida because of all the snow and blizzard conditions we have here at our house. Dad must've hit his head on something because he told Ms. Mary that him and mom we're leaving very early this morning to come home to US. They're leaving the 60 degree sunny weather to come home to the ice and snow and 20 degree temperatures because we are here and dad says that they miss us and want to see us in the snow. Ms. Tammy and her daughter, Ms. Lisa, are taking good care of us and are a little surprised that we all like playing out in the snow. They've had a little diffculty getting us to come back into the house. It's been GReat but we miss mom and dd too. They're trying to get home before dark tonight. Ms. Mary told them that we're O.K. and told them to be safe and stop if they get tired rather than having an accident.
Once when mom and dad went to Kissimmee they took Max and Shiloh with them because they were a bit rambunctious. Here's some picture from the pet hotel they stayed in. They had a GReat time but, unfortunately, they get to stay home with us now. Radar is staying over with Sissy Sarah and her dogs because he has "special needs" and we didn't want to burden Ms. Tammy and Ms. Lisa.










**********************************************
LAST CHANCE TO VOTE!
RADAR'S BEGGING STRIP
Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRR) is still in the #1 position among the West Virginia shelters but we've slipped back from #103 to #105 overall in The Animal Rescue Site monetary grant voting this morning - PLEASE VOTE TODAY. Maybe we'll break into the top 100 if everyone can keep voting through today. Right now AHGRR is in a position to be awarded a $1,000.00 grant for being #1 in the State of West Virginia. But that could be lost if our supportters don't continue to vote each and every day from now up to today, the 20th of December. How devastating that would be to Ms. Carol and Mr. Skip who give so much of themselves to help homeless dogs find their furever homes. We only have five days of voting left, counting today, to go. So we need you all to help AHGRR stay on top to close out this quest. 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.
PLEASE REMEMBER
THAT VOTING ENDS
AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT
DECEMBER 20TH
ONLY 1 VOTING DAY LEFT


PLEASE VOTE FOR AHGRR
Please go to this website:
http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clickToGive/shelterchallenge.faces?siteId=3/shelterchallenge.faces?siteId=3
The webpage can sometimes be 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

To simplify things, you can actually just select "WV" in the state drop down menu and type "Capon" in for the City. 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; 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. Voting began on September 14th, 2009, and ends at midnight (PST) on December 20th, 2009, just five days from today. 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! The homeless pets awaiting adoption at Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary are counting on us.

Our humans miss us so much they now take us with them in the S-RV (Siberian Recreational Vehicle) when they go on vacation. And we understand via rumor that such a trip is about a week away!

JackDaddy said...

Make sure you tell them how happy you are when they get home! And then ignore them for 10 minutes for leaving you alone! :)

They must love you a bunch - hurrying home like they are. You count more than warm weather. Bet you missed them 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.
