GOOD OLE BOY JUBAL
JUST A GOOD OLE BOY
Hey Hounders,

It's your ole buddy Jubal from Bumpass, Virginia.  Ya'll can bigify my picture just by clicking on it so'in ya'll be able to read my hat.  Kinda cool in these parts this mornin'.  Mom says it was 9 degrees F when she headed out to work.  I kinda just hung around inside today, did some whittling and took a couple of naps.  heard this funny story the other day down at the general Store.

  
Seems Curtis and Leroy saw an ad in the Bumpass Daily Bugle Newspaper here in Bumpass, VA. and bought a mule for $100.
The local farmer agreed to deliver the mule the next day.
The next morning the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry, fellows, I have some bad news, the mule died last night."

Curtis &Leroy replied, "Well, then just give us our money back."
The farmer said, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already."
They said, "OK then, just bring us the dead mule."
The farmer asked, "What in the world ya'll gonna do with a dead mule?"
Curtis said, "We gonna raffle him off."
The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead mule!"
Leroy said, "We shore can!  Heck, we don't hafta tell nobody he's dead!"
A couple of weeks later, the farmer ran into Curtis &Leroy at the Piggly Wiggly  grocery store and asked.
"What'd you fellers ever do  with that dead mule?"

They said,"We raffled him off like we said we wuz gonna do.."
Leroy said,"Shucks, we sold 500 tickets fer two dollars apiece and made a profit of $898."

The farmer said,"My Lord, didn't anyone complain?" 
Curtis said, "Well, the feller who won got upset. So we gave him his two dollars back." 


Curtis and Leroy now work for the government.  
They're overseeing the Bailout Program.

Ya'll wanna play some fetch?







Please don't be forgetting ta vote in the Shelter Challenge so'in ya kin help save some of those pups living up at Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary in WV. 

Would ya'll like some pumpkin pie?

 =======================
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 for 10 weeks.  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 15.21% of the WV vote today, up from yesterday when we had 14.95% ;  #1 has 16.02% and yesterday they had 15.03%.  There's only a 0.81% gap (0.08% yesterday the other way) which we can reverse in just a few days of heavy voting. We're now at #163 nationally; yesterday we were #166.  The WV #1 shelter is at #148 nationally (yesterday #161); now 15 spots ahead of us; it was 5 spots ahead of 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

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.
