MAX - CHAPTER FIVE

MAX PUP

HOMER MOVES IN:

HOMER + NEWFS
Hey Hounders,
About two months after Chance went to The Rainbow Bridge, mom and dad went away in the suburban. They were gone a long time, all afternoon, when they came back they had a Golden Retriever named Homer J. with them. Homer looked a lot like Chance, he even had the same color collar.  Homer was about 8 years old but no one knew for sure.  
HOMER with some ham
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 liked Homer. He was a red Golden Retriever like Chance, and he seems to me to be a lot like Chance. Homer didn't replace Chance, but he helped to fill the hole that Chance left empty when he went away.  Homer had a lot of bad habits: he wouldn't get up on the furniture or beds, he wouldn't bark or growl, he even had to be invited before he'd go into the house.  
ALEX and HOMER
The rest of us had a terrible time breaking him of those habits.  We didn't want mom and dad to think that the rest f us would behave like that.
Homer was with us the last years of his life and I'm hoping that those were the best years of his life. He was a very much loved Bumpass Hound. Homer got the bad cancer.  He had to have some tumors removed a few years ago but then they went inside him to his lungs.  Mom and dad helped Homer as much as they could but Homer went to The Rainbow Bridge on the last day of January this year to meet my old buddy Chance.  I miss both of them.


My Pal - HOMER J.

We are enjoying your story, and voting as many times as we can. YES! We can also vote from Mom's Nook Color! Hope it is helping.

(the nook is hard because the keyboard is verrrry small. Teka has to use just one front pointer nail, and that makes her tired.)

So sad to hear about Homer J!

He was a very very handsome fellow! And I'm glad you got to know him.

We sure felt terrible when Homer had to make his journey to the Bridge, but as you said Max, the last years of his life were the best. He went to the Bridge knowing a lot of love.

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.
