WEREN'T EXAGGERATING

Hey Hounders,

J.E.B. here with today's Tuesday post.  I love the snow and we had a couple of snowfalls this year; certainly not as much as we had with the big pre-Christmas blizzard in 2009 when mom broke her foot and ankle, but still enough to romp in.  I love making snow angels.  I practice all year while waiting for enough real snow to make them in.  Our blog buddies Maggie and Mitch live up in The Constitution State, which our dad says was The Nutmeg State when he was growing up in The Bay State.  Anyway,  they were whining about how much snow they had at their house during the recent blizzard that clobbered New England.  They're not as big as us so we figured that they were just over-estimating their backyard snow.  They said that they had two feet of snow in their city but we doubted the accuracy of their claim.  We'll, they say that one picture is worth a thousand words and now we have been provided the proof; alas, not the pudding (Maggie and Mitch are always eating something).  Here is what was actually in their city and Maggie and Mitch were correct; it is, in fact, two feet of snow.  We apologize for ever having doubted them.

TWO FEET OF SNOW; WOW!

=======================


PLEASE VOTE FOR AHGRRS


The above link will take you to the Animal Rescue Site where you will get to click to donate a free bowl of food to homeless animals. After you do that you will be presented with a "Thank You" page; at the top center of that page please click on the "VOTE TODAY" button. That will then take you directly to the voting page. The only information that you need to enter is to select "WV" as the State from the drop down menu and enter "Capon" for the City. Then click on "Search." The page will then do its' thing and will end up showing "Almost heaven Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc. Capon Bridge, WV 26714." A "VOTE" button will also appear. Click on that "VOTE" button. After you vote you will see a confirmation page that requires you to identify an animal photo; this eliminates illegal machine voting. The answer is simply the type of animal that you see; dog, cat, turtle, fish, cow, etc. - not a specific breed. You can cast one vote everyday from as many different computers to which you have access. Voting will run until August 22, 2010.  You can have the Animal Rescue Site send you a daily reminder to "click" for free food; then you can vote in the All-Star Shelter Challenge. The more friends you can rally to vote the better our chances of winning. Every vote, every day, every computer - counts. 
In the West Virginia state competition AHGRRS has fallen to second place, by a considerable margin, as we predicted.  That can change over night so don't give up ---- VOTE  We've only got 11.97% of the WV vote today, down from yesterday when we had
11.99% ;  #1 has 14.59% and yesterday they had 14.21%.  There's only a 2.69% gap which we can close in a few days of heavy voting. We're still at #222 nationally; yesterday we were #222.  The WV #1 shelter is at #175 nationally (yesterday #179); now 47 spots ahead of us; 43 yesterday.
PLEASE HELP,
VOTE
AND PLEASE TRY TO GET OTHERS TO VOTE TOO

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.
