ALL-STAR SHELTER CHALLENGE
PLEASE VOTE
Check the top of the right side bar. --->:
5 July 2010: AHGRRS is #1 in WV with 22.74% of the state vote; DOWN from 22.76% yesterday. We're up 1 position to #54 nationally. The #2 shelter (P.U.R.R. West Virginia Inc.) has 13.19%; up 0.64% from yesterday.  They have been gaining on every one else daily; they are now #125, up 6 places from #131 nationally yesterday. There's now only a single digit 9.55% gap between WV #1 and #2, closed down from yesterday's 10.21% gap.  Thank You for voting.   
Please don't get complacent; we're slipping.


Hey Hounders, 
Homer J. here and boy am I glad that the 4TH of July weekend is just about over.  I DO NOT like all of the Bang-Bang-Boom-Boom stuff that has been happening around the neighborhood.  The summer weekend people from the big city (Dee-See) sure raise heck when they come down to the lake.  I really appreciate the more sedate year-rounders. 

Mom was very disappointed that the $$ Ka-Ching didn't get fixed in time to go see the GReat big a fore mentioned Bang-Bang-Boom-Boom display that is held out on the lake (thank goodness).  (Das Boot; she is still in the shop and we can all just hear the Ka-Chings going off in mom and dad's heads.)  The Lake Anna Civic Association does a GReat job if you're into all that Bang-Bang-Boom-Boom stuff.  Kinda a bummer for her and dad but we got to watch the Coca-Cola 400 NASCAR Race on TV. I even got wrapped up like a burrito in order to try to calm my nerves from all of the neighborhood Bang-Bang-Boom-Boom stuff (mom read somewhere that it helps calm down anxious dogs).
Well, all of us hounds and kitties here in Bumpass, VA, U.S.A. hope that you all had a super 4TH of July weekend not matter what part of the world y'all live in.

OBTW:  Sugar won the U Top Dog voting.  Thanks to everyone that supported her by voting everyday. She looks good on TV.   
Boru is on TV a lot but dad gets made at him and tells him to get off of the TV.  If he sits in front of it, dad tells him that his father wasn't a glass blower and to move his butt out of the way.

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.
