Peek-a-boo I don’t see you, because it’s me, Radar, the blind Bumpass Hound. I’m a red Golden Retriever but not quite like other GRs you may know. I was born in a puppy mill, blind at birth, with no tail (only a nub) and sinus cavity defects. Of course I wasn’t gonna be bringing in any big bucks at sale so I was probably headed to a puppy mill death by drowning or being shot. Fortunately, one of the workers asked if they could have me, strictly to save me from a certain demise. I was then shuttled up to Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary where Ms Carol took especially good care of me. I think she wanted to keep me as a house pet, However I got really sick one night and Ms. Carol recognized it as Parvo Virus so she took me to a vet in Charlestown WV and I was put in isolation while being treated. I had a very dire week and almost died, but I survived and got stronger. After about 10 days I was ready to leave the vet and it was with a prognosis to survive Parvo, a rarity for a young pup like me. Unfortunately Ms. Carol couldn’t take me back to AHGRR because Parvo is highly contagious and I had to be quarantined for 8 weeks. AHGRR didn’t have any quarantine facility back then (they’ve since built one with donation money from people like you) and I would present a risk to all the other dogs. Ms.Carol called mom and Dad even though she knew that they had lots of other dogs living here. Ms. Carol thought that mom and dad might know someone else that could take me to quarantine. Mom and dad said that since it was spring tome and the weather was nice that they could set up a chain link 8′ x 6′ kennel inside the big 3 car detached garage that was well away from the house and dog paddock. So on May 11, 2009 mom and dad drove up to the vet in Charlestown WV and checked me out of the hospital and brought me down here to quarantine. They had set up my quarantine station in the detached garage with lots of toys, food, water and a bed. For almost 2 months I was kept separate from the other dogs. Mom and dad would sit with me in the front yard where i would be tethered and allowed to sit in my own #24 chair. Of course afterall that time in kennel quarantine and all of the special attention that I got I wasn’t about to be going anywhere else, so I became a Bumpass Hound and was really rescued from death. So I’m definitely a rescue dog and “Rescue Dogs Rock.” Here are some photos of my first year as a Bumpass Hound.
This dog is wanted for impersonating a super hero (a 5 lb super hero?) and encouraging reckless poetic license in the form of a limerick, which by the way, is a city in Ireland.If you know this dog or his location, do NOT approach him yourself. Notify the FBI, CIA, KGB, CSI (New York, Miami and Las Vegas), NCIS (Regular and LA), WKRP and and other initials that you can think of.
Boru here with a joke for our cowdog buddy Hoot (a.k.a Dietz) out in Kansas.:
A cowboy appeared before St. Peter at the Pearly Gates
"Have you ever done anything of particular merit?" St. Peter asked.
'Well, I can think of one thing," the cowboy offered. "On a trip to the Black Hills out in South Dakota , I came upon a gang of bikers who were threatening a young woman. I directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn't listen. So, I approached the largest and most tattooed biker and smacked him in the face, kicked his bike over, ripped out his nose ring, and threw it on the ground. I yelled, 'Now, back off or I'll kick the crap out of all of you!'"
St. Peter was impressed, "When did this happen?"
"Couple of minutes ago."
