MAX IN HIS CRATE
THE GREAT GARAGE CAPER:
  One Saturday night dad let us all out at about 11:00PM to do our business. I don't really have any business so I just pee and poop and refill at the water bowl. When we go back inside, Abby and the Goldens all go upstairs to the MBR (?) and Shiloh and me go into the kennel. Dad puts us into our crates and gives us each a milkbone (supersize that will ya dad.). Dad then locks both the top and bottom latches on our crate. (He only locks the top latches on everyone else's crates when they're in the kennel.) Well, this particular night dad must've been very tired or in a hurry because he missed latching both of my crate locks. Oh he pushed the latch catches over alright, but they didn't go into the lock loops, they both went under the loops. It wasn't too long after he went upstairs that I noticed my crate door would open up when I pushed on it. We have a night light so it was easy to see my way around as I ventured out of my crate unsupervised. I kept very quiet so as not to disturb anyone upstairs in the MBR (?). I felt like a great explorer. I was like Christopher Columbus discovering the new world. So much to do; so little time to do it. Hey, here's a whole COSTCO package of shop towels. Let me just chew through the package. Wow, each of the twelve rolls is individually wrapped. These are really chewy. I wonder what's in the trash can? What's this thing? Ooops, didn't mean to knock over the stool. Eureka, an old chewie bag. UUUUMMM, that taste s good. Hey, what's this thing? Can I get that thing up there on the shelf? Gee, it's starting to get light outside. I can hear all the birds chirping. Is that the Foo Foos barking over in their yard? What's that noise? Yikes, the house door is opening; somethings coming. Oh, hi dad, it's only you. Are you OK? Why are you yelling, is something wrong? 
EPILOGUE
Max: Hey Shi, why don't us dogs make good dancers?


Shiloh: I don't know Max, why don't us dogs make good dancers?


Max: Because we have two left feet!
Haa haa haa haa. Haa haa haa!


Well , that's  chapter 5 which was the end of the original post, but a few more things of interest have happened since then so our next "THE NEWFS" installment will cover our 1st birthday and our trip to see Pluto, Goofy, Lady, Tramp,  Nana, Dugg and all the dalmations down at WDW in Orlando.  I hope you like our story so far.

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. 
Thanks to your efforts, in the West Virginia state competition AHGRRS has retaken the top spot by a very slight margin.  That can change back again over night so don't give up your effort---- VOTE  We've got 14.71% of the WV vote today, up from yesterday when we had 13.55% ;  #2 has 14.05% and yesterday they had 14.48%.  There's only a 0.66% gap (0.93% yesterday the other way) which we reversed in just a few days of heavy voting. We're now at #168 nationally; yesterday we were #189.  The WV #2 shelter is at #178 nationally (yesterday #175); now only 10 spots behind us; it was 14 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.
