WORDLESS (?) WEDNESDAY

THE INSIDE HOUSE BUNCH





WE 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 from #3 in West Virginia to the #2 position and up to #151 overall in The Animal Rescue Site monetary grant voting this morning. We obviously need lots of help to get into winning range. Please consider appealing to your social network friends on Facebook, My Space, etc. Our mom did and she got all positive responses. 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 one more; his name is Mugs. Mugs has been waiting for his new furever home for a while now. Perhaps you could find room in your heart and home for Mugs. Maybe you can help sponsor Mugs while he waits for his new home. Even if you can't, you can still vote for AHGRR and possibly help Mugs. Here's a biography on Mugs:
3-4 year old Mugs has lived his entire life at the end of a chain - until now. And, then his owners moved on and left him (and 15 other dogs) behind. This was a good thing for Mugs, though - as he has learned crate training, and has learned to LOVE being inside, you can almost see him smiling. Mugs is an all around adorable dog. This dog has personality plus - - - - - -. If you would like to offer Mugs 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.

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"

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. Steven 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:

Forgo the Flowers. Be careful with holiday floral arrangements. Lilies are commonly used this time of year and all varieties, including Tiger, Asian, Japanese Show, Stargazer and Casa Blanca can cause kidney failure in cats. In addition, common Yuletide plants such as mistletoe and holly berries can be potentially toxic to pets. Holly, when ingested, can cause pets to suffer nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Mistletoe can cause gastrointestinal upset and cardiovascular problems. Safe alternatives include artificial flowers made from silk or plastic.

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.
