INSANE CRACKER CANDIDATE - PATTI WHACKIT

PLEASE DON"T FORGET TO VOTE IN THE ANIMAL RESCUE SITE'S SHELTER CHALLENGE (SEE BOTTOM OF THE POST).  WE NEED YOUR VOTE TODAY, REGAIN #1 IN WV TOMORROW.

***<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>***

CANDIDATE PROFILE

Hey Hounders,  Patti Whackit here.  My feline brother Alex entered me into the MANGO MINSTER 2011 competition.  Alex is a Maine Coon Cat and he weighs about 20+ lbs.  Alex has all of his claws as do all of our kitties.  The judge of the Insane Cracker Dog category that I'm entered in is a Teacup Chihuahua name Twinkie Tiny Dog. (All of you Hounders can leave her a comment on her blog about how GReat I am )  According to her bio Tiny Twinkie weighs about 4 lbs, so Alex weighs 5 time what cute little Twinkie Tiny weighs.  Our other Maine Coon Cat, Alex's younger brother, Brian Boru, weighs more than Alex.  My Family sister Shiloh, a Newfoundland Landseer, weighs about 165 lbs, that's an amazing 41 times as much as Twinkie Tiny; her turds weigh about what Tiny Twinkie does.  Anyway, I'm supposed to post some info as to why I should win.  Actually, I am very much like Judge Tiny Twinkie; so here's some info about me:

I am a spayed Golden Retriever/Chow American mixed breed (mutt).  I have a black tongue so mom thinks I have Chow in me.  I am a rescue dog. I was picked off the streets of rural North Carolina with a fractured leg and mangle tail, I had been struck by a car on a country road.  Some nice people took me to the Lenoir County SPCA. Their vet thought I might be a lost cause, until the SPCA decided to invest in my recovery.  The Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary agreed to take me into their care after my recovery.  I had surgery on my right hind leg and on my tail.  My leg surgery was highly successful but my tail didn't heal well and became infected so the vet had to crop about 3-4 inches off of it so it's a bit shorter than it should be. After my recovery, I was transported to Fredericksburg VA and was supposed to be fostered for one week and then be transported to the AHGRRS shelter in WV.  HOWEVER, I felt really at home in my foster home and I melded with The Family.  I was the eleventh dog along with then 3, now 4, cats.  So I picked my humans and Family; I picked wisely. With proper around the clock care I became a strong little forty pound heroine. Today, I enjoy life as I ricochet around on my 4 good legs...I'm a golden dog.  Here's a video of me, the youngest (1+1/2) Bumpass Hound , playing with my Family sibling, Homer J., the oldest (12) Bumpass Hound.  Homer is also an AHGRRS rescue dog like me. 


I'm the smallest Bumpass Hound, weighing about 40 lbs.  We are a very close Family and look out for each other.  One for All and All for One. The boys are very protective of us girls, very protective; they don't like to see us hurt or upset.

=======================
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 back into 2nd place by a very slight margin.  That can change back again over night so don't give up your effort---- VOTE  We've got 14.95% of the WV vote today, up from yesterday when we had 14.71% ;  #1 has 15.03% and yesterday they had 14.05%.  There's only a 0.08% gap (0.96% yesterday the other way) which we can reverse in just a few days of heavy voting. We're now at #166 nationally; yesterday we were #168.  The WV #1 shelter is at #161 nationally (yesterday #178); now only 5 spots ahead of us; it was 10 spots behind us yesterday. We are truly appreciative of your voting efforts on our behalf. 
PLEASE CONTINUE TO HELP,
VOTE
AND PLEASE TRY TO GET OTHERS TO VOTE TOO

Enjoyed the video!!! We VOTED!!!
Will continue to vote for you. Mom is checking on the name of Whiskey Woods. It is actually known as something else - all the kids & lots of people in the neighborhood seem to have always called it that. Will let you know. WW is more colorful - don't ya think?? Anyhow, it is not far from Lincoln Park just up the hill a bit. You were very close with the link you found. Looking at the picture on that site showing Lincoln Park - just up & to the right is another green treed area. That is it.
Thanks for visiting

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.
