ON THE NET NEWS
We found this floating on the internet and asked dad how it happened.  He agrees that it's a plausible story:
On the Wal-Mart PA system: 'Cleanup in aisle 10, we have a husband down.'
Husband Down?
A husband and wife were shopping in the local Wal-Mart.
The husband picks up a case of Budweiser and puts it in their cart.
'What do you think you're doing?' asks the wife.
'They're on sale, only $10 for 24 cans,' he replies.
'Put them back, we can't afford them!' demands the wife, and so they carry on shopping. ("carry on" is navy speak for "continue.")
A few aisles further on along the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.
'What do you think you're doing?' asks the husband.
'It's my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,' replies the wife.
Her husband retorts: 'So does 24 cans of Budweiser, and it's half the price.'
He didn't have time to duck. 
Husband Down.

Hi All,
I'm sorry I could not make the meeting this evening. I hope it was a good one!
I have a sad story and am just posting this in case anyone knows of a good home for Bonnie. My elderly neighbor passed away on Sunday and left poor Bonnie behind. She is a bit of a nervous dog and has some separation anxiety issues, but overall is very loving and such a sweet girl. My female dog does not like nervous dogs and will not tolerate her. My other neighbor tried it too, but she has a huge Bernese Mt dog that is not the friendliest dog around, and well over 80 pounds. I'm afraid what would happen to poor Bonnie if she were to try to take her in. My deceased neighbor's brother, who is around 77 himself could not take her b/c the retirement home will not allow it. Sooooooo, he took Bonnie to the Alexandria animal shelter yesterday. I tried to get him to try a rescue instead, but he didn't want to spend the time calling around. :-(


BONNIE
So far I have not been able to get any more information about her status there. She really is a sweet dog and I would love it if she went to another family who had the time to dedicate to her. Picture attached. If you know of anyone who might be interested, I guess the best thing to do would be to contact the Alexandria VA shelter down on Esienhower Ave.

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.
