Golden Retriever folks paying it forward

0485.jpgI got a wonderful post today from Jennifer Edwards, NRGRR president.

It is time to repay the Golden rescue community for all of the support they showed Hank. Hank was on e-mail lists, websites and newsletters from golden rescue groups across the country. They all fell in love with Hank just as we did.Golden Retriever Sizzle from Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue (DVGRR) is in the Bissell MVP Pet Photo Contest. If Sizzle ends up winning, DVGRR will receive a $10,000 grand prize.The proud parents have provided a link to Sizzle, and they would appreciate your vote! And you don’t even have to confirm it in e-mail. HTTP://

PLEASE VOTE TODAY as voting ends tomorrow for the grouping of photos in which Golden Sizzle has been placed Send this info and link to everyone you know. If we could get Hank to be the $50,000+ winner, we should be able to be successful here too. DVGRR is doing such important work and you should check out their Golden Gateway program which is so very much admired


I also have a link to a wonderful article that was written bv Sandie Chauder Jennifer and now appears at GRCA’s rescue page. You will love all the baby Hank photos.

For those not familiar with the Hank tale, here is a summary below.

Three weeks ago I asked folks to help send Handsome Hank to Hollywood! A 2006 Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue (NRGRR) alum, he had been selected as a finalist in Circuit City’s ‘Find the Next Firedog’ Contest. NRGRR would receive $1 for every vote and if Hank won the grand prize, the rescue would receive an amazing $50,000+ with Hank also starring in a Circuit City commercial.

Never in my wildest dreams did I believe this guy would actually win, but you guessed it. That is just what he did. Hank’s tag of “eager to please while always wearing a smile” in the GReat photo above by David Masini has paid off big-time.

Hank should only know how much his charming face helped the organization that got him to his wonderful forever home.
