THE NEWFS - PART 2

PLEASE DON"T FORGET TO VOTE IN THE ANIMAL RESCUE SITE'S SHELTER CHALLENGE (SEE BOTTOM OF THE POST)

NEWS FLASH: Our blogging buddy Jack out in Tuck-Sun AZ recommended that we all watch this video.  We did.  We must report that we don't recommend that you let your moms watch it unless you want a life of slavery; continue to do what you best - ACT DUMB.  All you terriers out there just knock this crap off - ASAP; or maybe you'd like Shiloh to pay you a visit



MAX JOINS THE PACK


EXCERPT FROM Wednesday, 

March 26, 2008


GOING HOME & JUBAL:
Eventually they couldn't put it off any longer and they actually had to come down and get me. They showed up in a nice big, gas guzzling SUV that was very roomy and comfortable for someone of my status and stature. They brought along one of their Golden Retrievers, Jubal, to keep me company as if I needed a wet nurse. (Well he couldn't have really been a wet nurse since he was a boy dog and probably dry instead of wet.) Jubal turned out to be a sociable sort and we got along well for the hour ride home. Jubal sure likes to lie down a lot and make funny breathing noises; kinda like a chain saw followed by a wheeze, over & over. He keeps his eyes closed a lot. He doesn't move around a lot either. Big Jubes --- well, he was Big when I was little -- is a really laid back dude (most of the time). At first I liked looking out the windows but I was still a little wobbly and I felt kinda yucky so I laid down by Jubal most of the way home. We eventually got to my new home. I could tell we were getting close 'cause Jubal sat up and was looking around. He said we were just about there.
MEETING THE GANG:
After dad opened the back of the car he helped me down and then walked me over to the back gate and took me up to the deck; Jubal came along. Then each of the other dogs came out to meet me one at a time; first Chance, then JEB, then Abby, then Shelby, and then Jack. (I met Gordon later, he was blind and lived downstairs in the family room.) We all checked each other out and sniffed butts (like people shake hands).

Hello, my name is Max. -- Hi Dad! Say "cheese." -- Me and Abby.

We'll post Part 3 tomorrow.

=======================
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 is currently leading by a very small margin.  That can change over night so don't want to get over confident.  We've only got 12.53% of the WV vote today and yesterday we had
12.72% ;  #2 has 11.76% and yesterday they had 11.98%.  We're at #208 nationally; yesterday we were #202.  The WV #2 shelter is at #229 nationally (yesterday #215); now only 21 spots behind us.
PLEASE HELP,
VOTE
AND GET OTHERS TO VOTE

Hmph...thanks for showing the video of the Jack Russell doing some housework. Now Dad is trying to train me to fetch his beer from the fridge! And, I wouldn't be surprise if he wants me to crack open the beer too! Sigh...

Love,
Homer

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.
