Shelby Belle joined the pack at six weeks of age on February 23, 2005. These photos were taken the very next morning when she joined the pack. Nothing held her back, she joined right in on all the activities and she was warmly received by the pack, especially by Jubal and J.E.B.

Subject: Re: ANGEL'S VETERINARY COST

Hi
Thanks for your kind words and your offer to help with Angel's expenses. My understanding at the moment is that Angels friends and neighbors have covered her expenses. I will however forward your letter and address to Angel's mom in the event more is needed or if some unforeseen complications set in.
Angel is doing very well. she had surgery yesterday to treat the numerous puncture wounds and lacerations sustained in the altercation with the cougar. Her most serious wound was a puncture right through the skull bone over the frontal sinus over her right eye. the cat's fang had broken though the first layer of bone and fractured a fragment an inch square loose from the top of her skull. we were able to wire it back in place and rebuild the damaged area . If the fang had penetrated a half inch further back, it would have been the end. We are expecting a good recovery. Her eye is fine but the surrounding periocular tissue is very swollen , but coming down. there is a lot of bruising on the side of her face and neck. its too early to tell if there is any nerve damage to side of her face. if there is it should be just partial and not impede in any way.
Angel is a lovely dog, has an indomitable spirit and is recovering well from her ordeal. She has been out for several walks today and is
already bouncing around like nothing happened. we expect to be able
to discharge her in a few days.
The film crew from Global TV, Inside Edition and the local newspaper were here to film her today and she was jumping gleefully and licking camera lenses with delight!
Thank you again for your interest and support.
Kind regards

Dr Jack Anvik
Hospital Director

HOMER J. HOME SAFE AND SOUND FOR RECOVERY

Hey Hounders,
Dad left work today in time to get to CRAH by 5:30 PM in order to pick up Homer J. and bring him back home to his canine and feline brothers and sisters. We all missed the patriarch last night and no one tried to fill his spot on the big bed in the MBR. Dad says that LVT Jessica said that Homer had done very well. She said that she had taken homer for his wake up walk after he came out of his anesthesia
. He has about 7 stitches where Dr Collins took the growth off of his foot. The next most went where they took out his cauliflower mole. The big flap mole on his front leg looks like 3 stitches and Dr. Collins just clipped off his small flap and he doesn't have any stitches where that was removed. He'll be on an antibiotic for a few days and he has to go back to CRAH in 2 weeks to have his stitches removed. We expect that mom will be able to remove the stitches here at home. Dad said that Homer was very glad to see him and that he made a beeline for the CRAH door to get to the suburban. On the way home dad stopped at RHOB to get Homer only one McDouble for his dinner. When he got home at about 7 PM, Homer jumped right out of the car and did his business. Dad said Homer had obviously been holding his water for a while because it was like Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own. Dad said Homer was like the Duracell Bunny; he just kept on going and going. When they came in the house Jack was really excited about Homer coming home. Once he was safely back in the house, Homer got sleepy again and went into his spot on the big bed in the MBR and took a long nap. After a couple of hours he got up and dad gave us all our dinner. Dad checked out all of Homer's incisions and spread some Neosporin on them all. Homer J. is still a bit lethargic but dad says that isn't unusual following surgery on a senior like Homer. It'll take a day or two for Homer J. to get his energy back. He had no problem eating his dinner though. We want to thank everyone for sending good vibes and prayers Homer's way while he was in the hospital. It is comforting to know that there are so many caring pups and people and kitties too. All that caring must've worked cuz Homer J. is A-OK.

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.
