A SHARP LITTLE GUY!

Have you ever seen a baby porcupine?





Fable of the Porcupine

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died

because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the

situation, decided to group together. This way,

they covered and protected themselves; but, the

quills of each one wounded their closest companions

even though they gave off heat to each other.


After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one

from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.

So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of

their companions or disappear from the Earth.


Wisely, they decided to go back to being together.

This way they learned to live with the little wounds

that were caused by the close relationship with

their companion, but the most important

part of it, was the heat that came from the

others. This way they were able to survive.

Therefore:

The best relationship is not the one that brings

together perfect people, but the best is

when each individual learns to live with

the imperfections of others and can admire

the other person's good qualities.


The Moral of the story!

LEARN TO LOVE THE LITTLE PRICKS IN YOUR LIFE.

One of our friends tried to snuggle up to a porcupine and came home with a very sore nose. So don't get too friendly. You could get a sore sniffer.

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.
