YOU DON"T KNOW JACK!

BUT YOU COULD, KNOW JACK THAT IS.
HANDSOME HOMER
Hey Hounders, 
Homer J. here.  As the official spokes dog for TBH+K I'd like to tell you that our blog buddy Jack, out in Tucson, AZ, is now a published author, along with his faithful friend and companion, Tonto - errr I mean Tall Guy; hereafter referred to as TG.  So, if you bounce over to their blog, "Daily Dose of Jack" you can find out how to learn more about a dog that was such a cute puppy (stuff happens) and who is NOT, regrettably, a chocolate Labrador Retriever like some people (TG?) wanted him to be.  
HOMER - (NOT JACK)
We have only read the "teaser" allow by TG and 2/3 of that was about stuff that ya'll can't do like stealing TG's identity and stuff (written in Bengaleeze, err that's Legaleeze).  But our Daily Dose of Jack is usually very informative, at least about Jack, and occasionally entertaining.  So if you can, why not check out Jack's new book, creatively titled (now hold on to your hats or whatever) "Jack."  Oh yeah, right now, in my humble but sage opinion, it is really NOT a book at all (YET) because it isn't something that you can get up on the couch with and really take a bite out of it and chew on it and shred it and really make a big mess that upsets mom when she sees it and dad when he has to clean it up after mom tells him to.   It's currently more like an "e-book," which ya'll can't really run around the house with and having mom yell at ya and what not. If you're chewing on a kindle you're gonna have bigger problem real quick.

VOTING STATUS:

Gained a bit more today in the West Virginia state competition, as of 3/03/2011, AHGRRS can say "WE'RE STILL #1." We can stay at #1 if ya'll don't give up your effort---- VOTE. We've got 16.83% of the WV vote today, DOWN from 3/2 when we had 16.88% ; #2 has 16.25%, UP 3/2 when they had 16.15%. There's now a 0.68% gap (0.63% yesterday) which, hopefully, we can open further with continued heavy voting. We're now at #134 nationally; UP one place from 3/2 when we were #135. The WV #2 shelter is at #128 nationally, DOWN one spot (3/2 they were at #127); so they're only 6 spots behind us; it was 8 spots behind us on 3/2. We are truly appreciative of your voting efforts on our behalf.  
 
LET'S KEEP UP THE SURGE.
 
YOU CAN HELP US OUT
Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) operates solely on private donations and corporate or organizational grants. Right now you can help us in our attempt to win a $1,000.00 grant from The Animal Rescue Site's Shelter Challenge. The below logo link will take you to the Animal Rescue Site (dad fixed it) 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 right side of the top 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" in the State box from the drop down menu and then click on "Search." The page will then do its' thing and will end up showing a list of shelters. The second shelter on the list will be "Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc. Capon Bridge, WV 26714." A "VOTE" button will also appear. Simply 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 after about 8-10 hours; you can also vote from different browser such as MS-Explorer, Yahoo, Firefox and Google Chrome. Voting will run for about six more 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. On our blog we provide a status report of how we're doing; right now not so hot - 2nd place and slipping. Won't you please take the time to help out a senior Golden?

Those Kindles are not something good to chew on and it really makes Mom & Dad real mad.

LOL. As the bald man said to the hair doctor, "Thank's for the plug!". Fortunately, Jack has learned not to eat the iPad. I think that should be a book in itself! :)

A book where the dog DOESN'T die in the end? Mama will definitely read it! She loves dog books... but when they die in the end, unfortunately, it throws her into depression. Apparently she thinks ALL dogs are HER dogs. Even fictional ones. And about 97% of books about dogs have the dogs die at the end. :(

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.
