NEWS FLASH!



HELLO HOUNDERS,
Well here we are again.  The stars and satellites are all aligned and here we are.  We were catching up on our reading and commenting yesterday but thought we'd go ahead and invade you privacy today.  Dad has been checking your blogs from work and reporting back to us.   We are thankful that our blog buddy Max Dog is still with us and enjoying his cherished Grace time with Ms. Caryl and the rest of his pack; Tammy, Tommy and MR. Toffee.  Max's blog was recently featured on the BBC Blogworld so check it out.
It has been raining here for quite a few days and the paddock and Newf pen are mud pits.  Consequently we've had to spend a lot of time in the house tracking that mud around.  We lounge around and that invites the flashy beast to try to capture our digital images and steal a bit of our souls.
We also want to thank the gang at Jan's Funny Farm, Khyra and her mom (and Merdie too) and Gus and Teka and Muzzer for  keeping up the Bumpass Hound tradition of encouraging their readers and followers to continue to vote for Trooper Jessica and in the Shelter Challenge.  This was something that they willingly did for us while we were experiencing technical difficulties.
St. Patrick's Day is the 17th so don't forget to stop by Clive's blog and wish him, the NSLM and all of the very Irish family all a Happy St. Paddy's Day.  We wonder if we'll be having corn beef and cabbage for dinner that night.
You may recall Harry the Golden Retriever from Boston who's mom died last month from the dreaded breast cancer.  Well Harry and his dad, Robert, have a new post on their blog so stop by and leave a word of condolence and encouragement if you could please.  We hope that they will eventually be able to return to the blog world on a regular basis but we understand if they choose not to.  It is a difficult life transition that they are going through.
Sophie got to ROTE (Ride On The Errands) today in the Suburban with mom and dad.  She even got not one, but two, McDoubles (without onions) on the way home, AND dad split his large order of fries with Sophie 50/50.  And what did the rest of us get?  We got to smell the fries and burgers on Sophie's snout, that's what.

Yes, today is day 36 of grace. I can't believe that I am still chugging along. Mom says that I look wonderful. (for a sheep!):) Thank you for your constant prayers and encouragement...I am sure it is that which is keeping me so well.
With love and licks to you all!

We are glad to have you back, and we are sure that aligning all those planets and stars so you could post again has your dad about worn out.

We were excited about Sophie and the McDoubles too, because we know how far she has come since she joined you, and we see this as a great way to celebrate.

YAY Sophie.
But next time brush your teeth!

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.
