TOSS-UP TUESDAY

ALL-STAR SHELTER CHALLENGE

PLEASE VOTE 
RUSTY AND PENNY
GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
Check the top of the right side bar. --->:

20 July 2010: AHGRRS is #1 in WV with 22.72% of the state vote; DOWN 0.02% from 22.74% Monday. We'vw slipped down a notch to #54 from #53 nationally. The #2 shelter (P.U.R.R. West Virginia Inc.) has 13.59%; DOWN 0.06% from the Monday.  They had been gaining on every one else daily; but they have also slipped a notch from #121 to #122 nationally from Monday. There's still only a single digit 9.13% gap between WV #1 and #2, but it's opened up  from Monday's 9.09% gap.  Thank You for voting to keep us in the running for the $1,000.00 state award.  


Please don't get complacent.  We're holding our own right now, but we'd been slipping badly and things can change drastically in a wink of Gracie's eye if we all don't all
KEEP VOTING EVERYDAY.
Time to call in reinforcements (friends).
Perhaps you can copy the info from the top right side bar and post it on your blog to help us out in our effort.
PLEASE

WACKY WHACKIT 
Hey Hounders,
Patti Whackit here with some vital information of historical interest.  Dad found a website with information about the year he was born,like about 64 years ago.  It had some things in it that made him chuckle.  here's a sample:


'I'll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it's going to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for $10.00.

'Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't be long before $1, 000.00 will only buy a used one.

'If cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to quit.  Twenty cents a pack is ridiculous.

'Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter.


- Patti Whackit 


STAND-UP BORU

Hey Hounders,
I also have an interesting scientific fact to share with you.  It's really an amazing find: 
Scientists have discovered a food that diminishes a woman's sex drive by 90%.
It's called Wedding Cake.


I've got a couple of questions for y'all to ponder as you reflect on the meaning of life:
 

Why do men die before their wives? 
They want to.
 

Women will never be equal to men
Until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

(Dad should know.)

Around our house we convert our "dog years" into "people years" to relate. The people have started converting their "people years" into "Elm Tree" years to feel younger.

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.
