SUPER MOON


For weeks we haven't had any rain and the sky has been clear.  So we were really looking forward to going out yesterday morning, Monday November 14th, to see the supermoon at its' brightest and biggest condition.


Alas, we woke up to a heavy layer of ground fog and above that a completely overcast sky.  The moon, never mind the super moon, was nowhere to be seen.






During yesterday's full "supermoon" the moon came closer to the Earth than it has since 1948.  The moon was at its' biggest and brightest on Monday morning (Nov 14).  Yesterday's supermoon - a term used to describe a full moon at its' perigee, or closest point to the Earth during the lunar orbit - was the biggest and brightest supermoon to rise in almost 60 years. In fact, the full moon won't come that close to Earth again until Nov 25, 2034.  We figured that the probability that we'll see that one is about as good as our opportunity turned out to be yesterday - ZILCH. .

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.
