DIRTY, ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS

HOW LOW CAN A PERSON GO?
Hey Hounders,
Brian Boru here with today's blog post.  If you don't know why a "red" (ginger actually) feline such as myself would have the name Brian Boru then I'd like you to do a "Google" search of my name.  This is a heritage week for me as my blogging buddy Clive can probably attest.
We have some blog buddie out in the Land of Toto and tornadoes; that would be Kansas.  One of them is the Superintendent Supervisor of The Arboretum at Overland Park (OP probably has something to do with the Overland Stage Coaches).  This particular BB (Blog Buddy) would be Tank of Tank's Two Cents fame.  We have a couple of things to cover in regard to the Tankster.  The Tankmeister posted the following news on his latest blog post:

"One of our local animal shelters was burglarized last week.Fortunately, no animals were taken or harmed, however,here was a lot of damage done (broken glass, etc.) and some money was stolen. What kind of low-life would steal from a non-profit organization of any kind, but especially one that is trying to help neglected and abused dogs & kitties??   I wish I could sink my teeth into him/her/them!"


WILL YOU LEND A HELPING HAND OR PAW?
Here's how you can help out.  Go to Tank's blog post and read about his Limerick Party composition game.  The plan is that his assistant (his mom, whom he has fired as his secretary and assistant numerous times but is apparently unable, or unwilling, to replace) will donate $1.00 for each entry received.  Well it doesn't seem fair to us that she picks up the tab for the low lifeness of some deranged dirt bag(s).  So if you can spare a dollar or two of your  own you can send it to:
ANIMAL HAVEN
(Greater Kansas City's Largest No-Kill Shelter)
9800 W 67th St
Merriam, KS 66203

It would be nice to tell them that your blog buddy Tank told y'all about the shelter's misfortune.  But also be sure to post a Limerick on Tank's blog as we suspect that his assistant will be taking the donation money out of TTTF* and Tank  could probably trim down a bit.

Tank has also recently tagged us in a game that requires us to go to our first picture folder and open the 10th picture in that folder.  We have to post that picture with an explanation about it.Well in the File "My Pictures"  on our PC that we blog from, the first "Folder" is titled "AHGRR Photos."  That's where we keep photos concerning the Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue (AHGRR) & Sanctuary that we try to actively supoport.  This is the 10th photo in the AHGRR Folder:
It is a picture of this month's (March 2010) pin or refrigerator magnet that we posted about on March 4thAHGRR  has the new Jenny McMurtrie pins/magnet designs for March (Pin #2) and April (Pin #3).  Each pin is $12, including postage and handling, but if you order 2 or more - the cost is reduced to $10/each.  If you would like to order, please let Ms. Carol (ahgrr@frontiernet.net) know which design you want and how many and she will send you a paypal invoice.  They are not yet posted on the AHGRR website - so she will need to invoice you individually.  (Or you can mail a check to:  Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue, P.O. Drawer D, Delray, WV  26714)  Please remember to tell her which design you are ordering and whether you want a pin or magnet. You can see them on our post at http://bumpasshounds.blogspot.com/2010/03/whats-new-at-ahgrr.html

As part of our tag we have to post the rules:
Here are the instructions...
1. Open your first picture folder
2. Go to the tenth photo
3. Post the picture and tell the story behind 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.
