GETTING BACK INTO THE NORMAL ROUTINE

NOT MUCH GOING ON













-
Hey Hounders,
Alex and Boru here today. Things are quiet. No more lights and all the decorations are down from the inside the house and off of tree. Dad says it's a bit too cold to be taking down the outside house lights but they're unplugged. Dad will take them down when it gets a bit warmer; like in July or August maybe. Fortunately for us, dad hasn't cut it down yet so we can still lounge around under it. Word is that it'll be chopped down and put back into its' box sometime this week.
Homer goes to Doc Witter's this afternoon to spend the night before his surgery tomorrow. He's having some of his Bumpass Bumps removed. In upcoming news, Shelby Belle, the puppy from hell, will be celebrating her 5th birthday on Thursday. She was born on January 7, 2005. Mom and dad both say that she was the cutest puppy ever and that she's still very beautiful (yuck!). Here's a picture of Shelby with Jubal taken on February 24th, 2005 when she was about 7 weeks old.

What a sweet puppy girl!!!

It is pretty quiet here now too, but we aren't complaining after all the hullaballoo of the holidays. How is your Mom's injury doing?

Shelby was a lovely puppy...and she is a bootiful lady dog. Congratulations on getting the decorations down. Muzzer says it is not Epi Funny yet, so she is not even considering 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.
