THE NEWFS - PART 3

PLEASE DON"T FORGET TO VOTE IN THE ANIMAL RESCUE SITE'S SHELTER CHALLENGE (SEE BOTTOM OF THE POST).  WITHOUT YOUR VOTE TODAY, WE WILL BE LOSING AS OF TOMORROW.

EXCERPT FROM Wednesday, March 26, 2008  

THE FOO FOOS:
I really like living here. We can go swimming in the lake, chase squirrels, and bark at birds. We have 4 neighbor dogs that also have a fenced yard. They're little guys (Pompassranians or  something) , so we like to call them "The FooFoos." They come down by our fence and we all bark and sing together. The whole neighborhood gets to hear us so it must be really entertaining when we sing. All together now: AAHHHHROOOOOOOOOOOOO
 
AAAAHHHHROOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Woof, bow wow.
It was fun growing up with all the retrievers. They taught me to dig holes, catch balls, chase after balls, and bring back balls (duh, retrievers!). I learned to fend for myself in disagreements. I used to loose a lot of arguments but now I'm bigger than everyone else, so now I win all the time.
 



CHANCE GOES AWAY:
Chance and Abby were my best friends. I played with Abby and Chance taught me a lot. Chance got sick and dad had to take him to see Doc and he said Chance had to have an operation. After that Chance moved inside with mom and dad. He didn't come outside as much but I could tell that he was having fun 'cause he went everywhere with dad. Then one day he got really sick and dad brought us in one at a time to be with Chance. Then mom and dad took Chance for a ride in the RSQWGN Bronco. Chance must have gone away. He wasn't with mom and dad when they came back and they were sad that Chance was gone. Dad dug a big hole in the back of the garage and buried a big green bag; it must have been hard to do because he kept stopping and crying about it. Dad still goes back there behind the garage and talks to the ground.


HOMER MOVES IN: 
A while after that mom and dad went away in the Suburban; they were gone a long time.  When they came back they had a new guy named Homer with them. Homer had been in a "shelter" but he wanted a forever home so he decided to live with us, so mom and dad had to go get him. I like Homer. He is a red Golden Retriever like Chance, and he seems to me to be a lot like Chance. Homer doesn't replace Chance, but he helps to fill the hole that Chance left empty when he went away.

We'll do Part 4 soon.  I hope you like my story about becoming a Bumpass Hound.

=======================
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
12.53% ;  #2 has 12.21% and yesterday they had 11.76%.  There's only a 0.32% gap and they are closing on us fast. We're at #220 nationally; yesterday we were #208.  The WV #2 shelter is at #226 nationally (yesterday #229); now only 6 spots behind us.
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.
