YIPEEE; IT'S SNOWING .

KHYRA MUST BE IN PIG HEAVEN
Hey Hounders,
Well the big winter storm that swept across the country is now here and it is hitting us hard in Bumpass. When we woke up we already had about 4 inches of snow on the ground it was snowing hard. We sent Radar and Sophie out front first thing this morning to do some recon and other "business." Radar even watered the grass under the snow. Much to Radar's embarrassment, dad took a few photos for us to post. Our satellite connection is pretty bad because of all the snow interfering with the signal so we have to make this short and hope for the best. Dad has gone out to clear the dish off twice already but he can't clear up the snow in the sky. We have to load the photos in "small" and one at a time because we keep getting error messages with the uploads. Our friend Khyra up the r
oad in Pennsylvania must be going crazy because she is such a snow nut; must be because she a Siberian. All ten of us Bumpass Hounds dogs are inside today along with the 3 cats. The two Newfs are down in the garage kennel to stay warm. The rest of us (8) dogs are lounging underfoot and tracking in snow, leaves, and mud whenever we have to go out. We've been crying at the door like we had to pee real bad but that only worked the first 7 or 8 times before dad caught on that we just wanted to go out to play in the snow. Dad told us to just "chill out." We told him that that was exactly what we wanted to do, go out and chill. He wasn't amused and told us just to find a spot to get comfortable and take a long winter's nap.

Be careful out there, you know the ice only freezes slippery side up and we don't want any one to fall and break something.

JackDaddy said...

yes, please watch out for the ice. Emergency vets are very expensive on the weekend!

We had 5" here in Georgia! It's been really exciting. I hope you can go out and play some more.

So we are in Washington, but our parents happen to be in Virginia and we happen to know that Dad has been outside their hotel playing in the snow and we are not happy about it one bit. He's gonna get it when he gets home.

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.
