FRIDAY FOTOS

A CREATURE OF COMFORT










Hey Hounders,
Please don't forget that we still need additional funds to acquire the air conditioning unit for the kennel house at AHGRRS.  See that top of the blog's right side bar for more information.
Since achieving "rising star" status on the local comedy circuit (our blog), Boru has decided that before his performance he is entitled to extensive relaxation.  The big blue gorilla lazy chair (dad's) in the living room is perfectly suited for Boru's comfort.  The living room is gated off to preclude interruption by those pesky canines (us?) with whom he is forced to share his humble abode.   We can only hope that Boru doesn't make a guest appearance on Jay Leno's Tonight Show or get a guest gig on Comedy Central; watch out Jerry Seinfeld.

STAND-UP BORU

Here's a story about a Welsh Cow.  
It seems that the only cow in a small town in Scotland stopped giving milk. The town folk found they could buy a cow in Wales quite cheaply.
They brought the cow from Wales and it was wonderful, produced lots of milk every day and everyone was happy. 
They bought a bull to mate with the cow to get more cows, so they'd never have to worry about their milk supply again.  They put the bull in the pasture with the Welsh cow but whenever the bull tried to mount the cow, the cow would move away. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull and he was never able to do the deed.  The people were very upset and decided to go the Vet, who was very wise Scotsman, tell him what was happening and ask his advice.
"Whenever the bull tries to mount our cow, she moves away. 
If he approaches from the back, she moves forward." they said.  "When he approaches her from the front, she backs off.  If he attempts from the one side, she walks away to the other side. The Vet rubbed his chin thoughtfully and pondered this before asking,  
"Did you by chance, buy this cow in Wales ?"  The people were dumbfounded, since no one had ever mentioned that they had brought the cow over from Wales .  "You are truly a wise Vet," they said.  "How did you know we got the cow from Wales ?"  The Vet replied with a distant look in his eye,   
"My wife is from Wales "

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.
