CONFUSED? US CONFUSED? NEVER; WELL HARDLY EVER.

THE FIRST ANNUAL 
GLOBAL ANIMAL BLOGGING EVENT
CLICK ON THE LOGO

Hey Hounders,
It's none other than me, Radar, the blind Golden Retriever.  I'm one of ten dogs that comprise The Bumpass Hounds; we also have three cats to fill out The Bumpass Hounds and Kitties.  A recent blogging acquaintance of ours. Ms. Twinkie Maria Conchita Espenoza Cucaracha Doodle-Bug Chupa Cabra Twinkerson, a.k.a. Twinkie, is sponsoring the 1st Annual Global Animal Blogging Event (GABE).  Simple click on the GABE logo above to be taken to Twinkie's instructions about participating in the  GABE.  Us Bumpass Hounds and Kitties are going to participate as active participants and we'll even have some give away prizes for either a dog and/or cat that we'll be providing to a few of the bloggers who leave comments on our posts.  We'll select them randomly.  We will post photos of the prizes in the blog over the next week or so.  We want to participate in the GABE because it will give us a chance to widen our horizons and hopefully meet some new friends to add to our old friends. We've learned a lot about dogs around the world since we started blogging.  We have friends in such strange and exotic places as Australia, Singapore, Mexico, The Netherlands, England, Italy, South Africa.and Kansas.  All of these places were a mystery to us before we started blogging but now we know the customs and traditions of these strange lands and the strange people and animals that live there. We hope that you'll participate as either an active or a passive participant; participating is what makes you a participant after all.  Let Twinkie know if you intend to participate as a participant, active or passive, by participating in GABE.

CONFUSED OR NOT CONFUSED; 
THAT IS THE QUESTION.
We started a game on Monday's post called Monday's Mystery Guest in which y'all were supposed to try to identify the dog in a photo with a clue provided.  Well we tried to be too clever and although we weren't confused, perhaps our dad, who helps us out, was a bit confused; it would NOT be the first time.  So in order to rectify our dad's well intentioned error, we are going to re post the photo in question along with a photo of yet another culprit and let y'all guess who they both are.  For each correct guess of the two "WANTED" dogs, we will have our stupid dad contribute one dollar to the Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary in Capon Bridge, WV.  If you explore around our blog you'll probably figure out that AHGRR is the shelter that we actively support.  So don't be shy and give us your answers as to who the mystery culprits are.  We've double checked dad's work and there doesn't appear to be any confusion on this post unless we're confused about the confusion. Our apologies to any culprit or bi-ped that might have been offended by whatever confusion might have been initiated by our dad's confusion.
- Radar and the Bumpass Hounds and Kitties

Now, just to show that our dad is not easily confused, check out the video on our RADAR SCREEN and count the number of Homer J. dogs in the pack.  Now J.E.B. has lived here for nine years and Homer J. has lived here 3 years.  Watch the video and see if you can figure out the problem.

A VERY SPECIAL PUP
Three year old Luke is a total sweetheart.  He has never met a person or pet that he didn't love.  Luke is eager to please, and he is crate trained.  Luke is also deaf, so he will need a fenced yard and someone who will understand his only handicap is his inability to hear.  Luke is in a situation a lot like our dog Radar who is blind.Luke needs a home.  If you can't adopt, maybe you can sponsor.

Sierra Rose said...

Hmmmm....sensing some confusion. Or, am I confused? Hmmm. Did I get one of those cookies too? I'm confused.
You all are wonderful! Keep your dad on track, ok pals?!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Tank said...

Aha! Confusion reigns! I'm sure there's enough for all of us to have some:)

Now about those strange and exotic places and the strange people and animals who live there...

HELLO???

KANSAS???

Hey Radar - what's your Dad smokin' these days?!

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

Awww, that video is GRRR-8! We herd the kitchen when we hear our Temptations coming out. Scooter(RIP) was the only kittie who could do a trick for them. It was purrty funny!

Fred said...

I can certainly identify #1, but I'm not sure about #2!

Gus said...

We did NOT get a cookie. That is all we know.

Sheila and Bob said...

It's obvious that trying to feed all of you when your all together and to make sure everyone gets a cookie, is like finding the pea under the walnut shell.

We will be waiting in the back......

LUCKY LUKE said...

Good ole the Homer! He has patience of a saint, don't he??? Good good boy...!

I have no doubt you stay confused on a counta there is just two of us and the other day the Mom was talkin on phone and she say "ah oh, the Bleu is outta he mind up and askin for troubl on a counta he piled up on the big bed suckin on the Luke's baby"...

Ten minutes later she realized it was really the me suckin on my baby.

There is a 20 pound and 12" taller difference in me and the Bleu... and I was layin completely still!

Anyway, my guess is pitcher one is the Fred and pitcher two is the Tank. I guess you will have to pay the nice people! :-)

wif love from the Luke

We're a GABE-ing too :) We're not willing to give up our crooked Limerick-er so you're out of luck but we'd still love a prize!

Dog Foster Mom said...

I am pretty sure I'm now thoroughly confused - but that's not your dad's fault. Although... if its an option.... let's say it is his fault. I would like all of my confusion, about life, the universe and everything, to be his fault. Unless that's too confusing. Nevermind.

Nubbin' Tails said...

So if mom lived where she could have more than 4 dogs and 4 cats this is probably what our house would be like! The Bumpass Hounds! I love it!

Wags!

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.
- The Bumpass Hounds and Kitties

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.
