BHRG – Mamie and Sheldon – My bash company!

October 30th, 2006 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Hello fellow hound lovers! Cat here, updating my blog. Since Chaps and Emma have a cushy life I am leaving them home for the GA bash. I want to help other hounds in need get a cushy life. My friend Lisa and I have been waiting to hear who we will pick up from Furry Friends animal shelter. Well, may I introduce, Mamie. She is a red and white female from Summerville. She has completed treatment for heartworms and sarcoptic mange. She is spayed. She is a beautiful and entergetic young girl.
Look how pretty I am - My name is MAMIE!


Next we have Mr. Delicious, Sheldon. He is ready for his forever home and gets along great with Mamie! Hey, bassets are like potato chips. You can’t just have one! Sheldon is about 4 years old and has been microchipped.

These are just two of the fantastic hounds that will be at the bash. Come see them all. These two will also be at the out of towner’s social pizza party the night before the bash. Want a sneak peek and some slobber with your pizza? Come over to the La Quinta at 6260 Peachtree Road. Lastly, go to

For much more information on how you can help this group.
