TUESDAY DOINGS - THERE IS A FREE LUNCH

Late News Flash:
Charlie Kelly-Church, the Blue Heeler Cross from Alburquerque, has a new post on her blog.  She hadn't posted since last October so please stop over at her blog and leave a welcome back comment.

WHILE THE CAT'S AWAY
THE DOGS WILL PLAY

Hey Hounders,
Well dad is out of town on "business travel" to VA Beach.  It's about a 3 hour drive so he's isn't too far away.  He'll be back Thursday night so mom is in charge of us all; feeding, letting us out, bedding us down etc.  This is mom's final examination week of the semester at LVT school so she'll be up in her office studying while we get to run rampant through the house.  Hopefully we'll be able to survive 'til dad gets back.  If necessary, we can always call 9-1-1.. Dad actually has to leave instructions for mom so she knows who gets what.  Sophie and Homer get special food for allergies.  Homer needs his ears cleaned every night to prevent infection.  We all need tick inspection / removal when we come in from the paddock and mom doesn't like ticks.  Traffic control is important in order to prevent skirmishes.

Jack and the Newfs are like oil and water; actually more like hydrogen and an ignition source.  It'll be interesting.  Mom's had to do this before and we've all still here so she's got a handle on it.
The worse part of dad's trip is that he'll be away for his "Beatles Birthday" which is tomorrow - Wednesday, May 5th.  We would really like to surprise him for his birthday so we want y'all to send presents.  We'd appreciate it very much if those of you who can afford it would send only one dollar ($1.00) for our dad's birthday gift to the Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary Air Conditioner Drive that we are sponsoring.  You can read about it at the top of the right side bar here on our blog.  We are over (just barely) half way to our goal.  Just click on this logo to "Chip-In" for dad's gift.  It'll make him real happy on what will be an otherwise bleak and lonely "Beatles Birthday."



If you can't afford to send a donation, but you do information searches on the internet, you can donate free every time you do a search. Here's a new easy way to raise money for AHGRRS. 

Just start using Yahoo! powered GoodSearch.com as your search engine and they'll donate about a penny to your favorite cause every time you do a search! In addition, do all of your shopping through their online shopping mall, GoodShop.com, where you can shop at more than 900 top online retailers and a percentage of your purchases will go to the charity or school of your choice. You pay the same price as you normally would, but a donation goes to your cause!

Here's the web site — http://www.goodsearch.com
Here's our proof that just simple internet searches and shopping can make a big difference.  You can track the amount of your donations. This is the history of the donations that our mom and dad have mad so far this year and since they started using GoodSearch for internet searches and shopping and this contribution was free:

The more people use GoodSearch, the more money will be directed towards your cause. The sky is the limit so please spread the word!
Please use this site honestly. Fraudulent searches will result in a charity being de-listed.
1 Estimated results. Fifty percent of the revenue generated from advertisers on GoodSearch is shared with the charity, school or nonprofit organization of your choosing. We estimate that each Web search will generate approximately $0.01 (image, video, Yellow Pages, and site-specific searches are not included). In fiscal 2006, 2007 and 2008 (October through September), each search actually earned 1.3 cents. However, with the soft economy and falling advertising rates in 2009, we expect this number to be lower. 2 Updated weekly. The data from GoodSearch is calculated in real time, while the GoodShop shopping data is posted weekly. GoodShop donations may also be delayed in posting as our retailers can take up to eight weeks to report sales back to us. Also, you may notice a change in the totals due to returned merchandise or cancelled orders.

STAND-UP BORU
(Double Feature) 
A marine biologist developed a race of genetically engineered dolphins that  could live forever if they were fed a steady diet of seagulls.  One  day, his supply of the birds ran out so he had to go out and trap some  more.  On the way back, he spied two lions asleep on the road.   Afraid to wake them, he gingerly stepped over them.  Immediately, he  was arrested and charged with ...  transporting gulls across sedate lions for immortal porpoises.
   
GOD LOVES DRUNK PEOPLE TOO
A man and his wife were awoken at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on the door.
The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a
push.
"Not a chance," says the husband, "it is 3:00 in the morning!"
He slams the door and returns to bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife..
"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.
"Did you help him?" she asks.
"No, I did not, it is 3:00 in the morning and it is pouring rain out there!"
"Well, you have a short memory," says his wife. "Can't you Remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us?  I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!"
The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pounding rain.
He calls out into the dark, "Hello, are you still there?"
"Yes," comes back the answer.
"Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband.
"Yes, please!" comes the reply from the dark.
"Where are you?" asks the husband.
"Over here, on the swing," replied the drunk.

We hope that all of our friends in those areas ravaged by the devastating boom-booms, tomatoes and flash flooding are all safe.  We hope that all of our Gulf Coast friends are not too adversely affected by the environmental disaster taking place off of their shores.  It is important to put everything in prospective; material things can be replaced; life can not.

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.
