Good Morning Good News !!!! August 29, 2010

Good Morning Good News !!!!

Stop in for party at 3 this afternoon if you can! Two celebrations!
Thank you Teens and
Thank you Voters!!!

Looks like another lovely day today !!!! What great weather we're
having huh?

WOO HOO! Walker is sooo happy he sends Dog Haiku --

I lie belly-up
In the sunshine, happier than
You ever will be

Today I sniffed
Many dog butts-I celebrate
By kissing your face.

I am your best friend,
Now, always, and especially
When you are eating.

Mark your calendar for the September 6th noon Labor Day Tour. Just one
tour and it takes off at noon - be there !!! Gates open at 11:30 am!!!

Katarina and volunteers hiked the woods yesterday and checked out the
log cabin and have plans for the Haunted Woods Trail at the Fall Furr
Festival !!!!! Put October 23rd noon - 5 pm on your calendar!

Two new sheep have joined our crowd. Ebony and Ivory. Owned by an
elderly couple no longer able to care for their animals due to health
reasons. Their chickens will be joining us soon. They have a dog they
have been facing having to give up too. They can't afford to feed her.
She's a big gal and unspayed. They've managed to keep her from having
puppies so far but it's a struggle as she tries to get away from them
when she's in heat. Restraining her is becoming more than they can do.
Our assistance program will give them a certificate to spay her and
get her shots, and our Pet Pantry will give them dog food. If you'd
like to help us help the animals and the people who love them, this is
the place to do it!

I need some more volunteers to help at events and festivals. It's easy,
clean, and some are climate controlled, all kinds of locations. Do
your opposable thumbs work? Can you smile? That's all that's needed!
Hang out at a table with our display and hand out flyers. If you can
help let me know, I'll let you know when and where events are and you
can pick!!

Have a wonderful Sunday !!!!

Cats Rule !!!!!


PS If you don't want your Daily Good New, just let me know! A couple of
you have said you only want Hairballs with out the Good News!! That's
ok! Just tell me. I'm here to make you happy, just tell me how! If
Good New don't make you happy - I could always start Bad News, but, as
you hoomans say, why reinvent the wheel - that's what you've got tv and
newspapers for !!!!!
