MONDAY BLAHS

FRIDAY NIGHT FIGHTS
(ON SUNDAY NIGHT)
Around here we call it kitty whoop-ass and it's been going on for at least 7 years.  Alex, the silver/gray Maine Coon and Boru, the ginger Maine Coon, are half brothers; different moms but same dad.  They each weigh over 20 lbs with Boru being the heaviest.  Alex is about 3 months older than Boru and they have been together since Boru's birth.  Occasionally, usually when the bi-peds are out of the house, these two get into a slight brotherly squabble.  Last night Alex got all puffed up and started stalking Boru.  They jumped up on to the kitchen table and were growling at each other in a standoff.  Then the fur started to fly and Boru jumped off the table and on to one of the chairs.  Alex hunted him down and gave Boru a swat from atop the table.  Then Patti, our latest Bumpass Hound, came over to investigate the goings on and all she got for her trouble was a swat from Alex and a growl telling her to MYOB.

Please, if you possibly can, contribute to the AHGRRS air-conditioner drive that us/we Bumpass Hounds are sponsoring.  We still need another $150. to reach our goal of $400.  You can read about how to help us at the top of the right sidebar of our blog.  Just a one dollar contribution would help out a lot. Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary, Inc.

Wow, that is some serious WWF. (World Wide Felines) Luckily I don't have to fight since I am the lone Feline ruler. If I wasn't, I'd give the other feline the smackdown.

I don't have to fight either although my brother poo-face Salvador used to try and kill me like that.

Wow, since we never had cats we are usually thinking of them in their relaxed sleeping state.
What a Brotherly squabble that was, and poor Patti, bet she is going to go the other way the next time she hears a wrestling match like that.

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.
