HOMER PRAYERS FOR HIS SURGERY

HOMER J. IS IN THE HOSPITAL
Hey Hounders,
Yesterday dad came home from work earlier than usual. Homer had a 5:30 PM pre-surgical review appointment at CRAH with Dr. Collins. Mom is still not very mobile and really couldn't handle Homer alone. Dad and mom took Sophie along to keep Homer J. company on the ride up to the city. On the way we hear tell that they stopped at Ronald's House of Beef and bought Homer and Sophie some McDoubles for dinner since dad hadn't fed us yet and Homer couldn't eat after 9 PM. When we got to CRAH, Dr. Collins examined all of the moles that dad had found on Homer. She went over the procedures with mom and dad and promised that she would take very good care of Homer. Homer was weighed in at less than 80 pounds (76lbs) so his sleeping gas bill won't be as high as originally expected. Sophie got weighed and matched Homer at 76lbs. Dr. Newman was there too and she congratulated Sophie on her amazing weight loss over the past year. Mom and dad visited for a short while but then the LVT took Homer back to his pre-surgical quarters to get a good night's sleep before his surgery this morning. The plan is for dad to pick up Homer J. on his way home from work this afternoon. Boru is worried about his buddy Homer and asked us all to make a howl to DOG for Homer's surgery to go well. We would like all of you to please keep Homer J. in your thoughts and prayers today so that there won't be any complications and he comes through A-OK. We'll post about Homer J. again tomorrow.

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.
