SATURDAY WEEKEND CHORES

Hey Hounders,
Radar, the blind Golden Retriever here.  So far we have raised $205.00 of the $400.00 required to buy the much needed 12,000 BTU air conditioning unit for the AHGRRS kennel house.  You can find out about the need and how to help in the upper section of our right side bar.

Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary  

Proceeds from the sale of these items support the Almost Heaven. You can purchase them through the website or by emailing Ms. Carol directly:

Today is chore day; mom wants the lawn mowed.  The John Deere riding mower is in the shop and won't be available to next week.  So dad was directed to use the self-propelled walk behind mower.  Well it's pretty old and it wouldn't start.  Dad changed the spark plug and cleaned the air filter.  He could get it to kick in by using starting fluid directly in the cylinder but it wouldn't sustain itself; kt kept conking out immediately.  After about and hour of messing with it the starter rope broke.  The mower has a high tension starter spring and it's really complicated to get in to change the starter rope.  So after discussions the old mower went to the recycling center and mom, dad and Sophie went to Lowe's and bought a new self-propelled Troy Bilt mower.  Dad "hand" mowed the front yard but will wait for the JD to come back from the shop to do out back.  Then we all watched the NASCAR race which is in Richmond tonight.  Me and dad have a special driver that we wanted to win and he led the race for a lot of laps but with just 5 laps to go he got beaten on a restart after a caution flag and our guy ended up finishing second. DRATS and DOUBLE DRATSI'll let y'all figure out who we wanted to win.

We'll catch y'all tomorrow.

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.
