JUBAL NEEDS YOUR VOTE

Good Old Jubal
Hey Hounders,
Well, we're trailing the leader in the Mango Minster 2011 Good Old Dog competitive voting.  If you don't already have a favorite and haven't yet voted, may I do what mom is always telling me not to do.......BEG.  It only takes a few minutes to vote.  Just go over to http://mangominster.blogspot.com and select my name in the right sidebar on the Good Old Dog list and then click on the "VOTE" button.  (You can use multiple browers to vote; MS Explorer, Bing, Yahoo, Firefox,Google etc.)  I would be very appreciative of your most kind consideration.  Thank ya'll.
- Jubal

P.S. Just noticed that this is our 700th post; a milestone.


HELP!

WE NEED SOMEBODY, NOT JUST ANYBODY
WE'RE LOSING BADLY - PLEASE HELP US

YOU KNOW WE NEED SOMEONE
WON'T YOU PLEASE, 
PLEASE HELP ME?
HELP ME, HELP ME.


THE AHGRRS RESCUE WAGON



Alex and me


Boru and me

PLEASE DON"T FORGET TO VOTE IN THE ANIMAL RESCUE SITE'S SHELTER CHALLENGE  AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN EVERY DAY.

WE DESPERATELY NEED YOUR VOTE TODAY, WE ARE FALLING FURTHER BEHIND #1 IN WV 

THANK YA'LL FOR YOUR VOTE 

If you try to leave a comment on our blog but are unable to, please drop us a line at:

so that we know we have a problem and can try to fix it.  

=======================

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. Actually, you can vote in the early morning and then again in the evening; you can also vote from different browser such as MS-Explorer, Yahoo, Firefox and Google Chrome. 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, as of 2/09/2011, AHGRRS is in 2nd place but finally starting to close the gap a bit. We can get back to #1 again over a few days if ya'll don't give up your effort---- VOTE  We've got 17.31% of the WV vote today, up from yesterday when we had 17.08% ;  #1 has 24.71% and yesterday they had 24.85%.  There's now a 7.40% gap (7.77% yesterday) which we, hopefully, can continue to close in with just a week of heavy voting. We're now at #116 nationally; yesterday we were #118.  The WV #1 shelter is at #61 nationally (yesterday #59); now 55 spots ahead of us; it was 59 spots ahead of us yesterday. We are truly appreciative of your voting efforts on our behalf.  Please, let's keep up the surge.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO HELP
VOTE
AND PLEASE TRY YOUR DARNEDEST TO GET OTHERS, FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS, TO ALSO VOTE

We hope the outer precincts will take you over the top.
If it's like it is here in the Chicago area, all those in the cemeteries will be allowed to vote.

Jubal,

I think you are a great old guy. This judging thing is just too hard!

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.
