Sunday Sharing

Sunday Sharing!
Here I'm sharing a khyss with The Doggy Nanny befur she went to dinner Thursday evening!
I sat whilst she got me a snakhk!
More sitting!
******
Here's Laska sitting in my Xterra. He did this almost the entire way from Winchester to Harrisburg. Sorry fur the fuzzy pikh - it was the cell phone so she khould send it to The SMS Moms...
Laska was admiring the handsome fella that was admiring him!
(again cell phone whilst waiting fur his next ride)
I think he wanted to see if that handsome boy khlosed his eyes too!
Little John!
He was soooo sweet and khwiet. He LOVED his khrate!
Roxy! She was a doll! No noise from this khrate either!
Of khourse, the OFFICIAL bag! It khontained the water bowl, some yummy treats, and the furry needed poo bags fur Laska's furst poo North of the Mason Dixon Line!
Khyra's Mom here: of all the transports I've done, Laska really made an impression on me for some reason. Something bad happened to him at some point in his life. The first pic of him just staring out the window is how he spent the entire trip. From time to time, he'd put his head down but he still had THAT look. I reached back as I drove and stroked him to reassure him he was safe now and only good was ahead for him. I told him I'd like to know his story but I'm not sure I would be ready for it. During the transport, we tethered his leash to something in the vehicle. During the first leg he tried to get under things (including the vehicle). Somehow it didn't seem prudent to give him the option to scoot under the driver's seat AND gas pedal. He was quite content on his pillow in his safe spot.
There were a few times he flinched over nothing - that made me sad too. He was so gentle as I lifted him into and out of the vehicles. Even as I write this almost four hours later, I can still see the look on his face and in his eyes. I'll admit that just writing that line has made the leaking start.
Whilst waiting for the next driver, we had lots of time to walk around. He became more and more comfortable with his surroundings and with me. I wasn't able to get any other pics of him because each time I had the camera, he walked toward me and would sit on my foot. He allowed me to pluck and pluck AND THEN PLUCK some more. You'll see in the videos how many Sibe starter kits have been released into the Harrisburg area! I was very sad to see him go. I even told him if I was in a position to add another Sibe, I would have chosen him. His eyes told me so much yet so little. Eyes are the feature I am most drawn to in a person or an animal. The old saying of the eyes being the window to the soul is true IMHO!
As Khyra shared, I did do two legs this time so I got to hit MD, WV and VA. I saw one eagle around the Harrisburg area...quite a few hawks...and on the return leg just as I crossed the Potamac River a pair of eagles! I was relieved I didn't see any dead deer this time.
Here is the Photobucket album with more videos (and some of the pics you saw above). There are quite a few videos - I couldn't stop myself again!
Little John and Roxy have homes. Laska is available. When I spoke to Sam several times throughout the day, I warned her she was getting a very special boy.
Khyra will be back tomorrow!
Until then, have a great Sunday.
Hugz&Khysses From Khyra's Khorner!

Such a wonderful thing you do. Laska has many fans in our household. how beautifully you described Laska.

pughy said...

Oh Khyra once again you made mum leaky eyed. That pup must have had a bad time. I so agree that the eyes say it all, and flinching at movement, that too says a lot. Poor little guy. It sounds as though you made an impression on him, he would have felt that love.
Here's hoping he gets an extra special home with lots of love to share.
Mums going to work so we will watch the video's later.

Hugs to you and your special mum. GJ and Carol xx

Checkers said...

Summit the Super Mal said...

Woo there Pretti Girl~
Woo know how pleased I am that you let yer Mom help so mani other pups. Just think back on how she helped woo. If she hadn't rescued "Whitney" we wouldn't be such wonderful buddies! I hope Laska finds a perfekht home. He sure looks like he deserves one!!!
Your BG,

I lov the car ride! So excitin! :)

Martha Basset said...

Hi Khyra
You looked beautiful giving you nan kisses - you are such a lovely dog.
We read about Laska and felt sad too. We know exactly what you mean. Even now with Martha who is much more settled and happy I get upset when I see her flinch when someone reaches out to stroke her.
It is so awful to see any dog being afraid and to know that some humans have been unkind.
As a dog lover it breaks your heart.
Laska is beautiful and we are so glad that you are helping in the bid to find a safe forever home. It will take time. As with Martha she seems more able to accept us but not other humans as yet.
Enjoy your Sunday.
love
Martha, Bailey & Mum xxx

We hope that Laska will get a family where he is truly loved! What a touching story about transporting him!

Britny said...

Aw hope he finds a great home. We are our Skye's 3rd owner and after 4 yrs she still flinches when you first touch her head :-( She has come a long way in 3 yrs but I doubt she will ever be "quite right"

The Thundering Herd said...

What beautiful transports, but we agree that Laska seemed to be very special. Someone is going to get a very special guy.

Abby said...

Hi, Khyra...

My Mom's eyes are leaking...

Thank you for sharing Roxy, Little John, & Laska's transport with us...

My Mom agrees...There is something very special about Laska...He stole our hearts away...

I hope someday we will see a picture of him with that fluffy tail held high...

What a special Mom you have...

Abby & her Mom xxxooo

Joey said...

Oh Khyra, it's so nice of your mom to not only transport the doggies that need it but to show them so much tenderness. We hope for the best for Laska - that he can put his former life behind him and find a beautiful new life and love - which has already started.

See ya!
Joey and Zeke

Ms. ~K said...

Wrooo wrooo,

What a wonderful lady you are Khyra's mommy!!

Our Lilly will flinched like that too. We are pretty sure she had a hard life before she came to us.

Tracey and Huffle said...

Your mum does GREAT work with the transports. It's very kind of you to let her use your Xterra to do it Khyra.

Tank said...

thank you for helping these doggies... you're very special yourself!

The OP Pack said...

What a sweet kiss for the Doggy Nanny!

Another great deed done by the Mom - Laska should have stopped and stayed at your place - he would have fit in so well, but we understand why it can't be.

Happy Sunday, the OP Pack

Gus said...

Poor Lhaska..we hope he finds a truly happy furever home.

What a special post. And a special boy. Mom agrees with you about the eyes. That is what she looks at first too.
Have a great day
Hugs
Sunny&Scootewr
pee ess Mom has been VERY busy but she hopes to let Scooter update the next couple of days. This is the first time the puter has even been on for days...

Pamela, Kira and Scampi said...

Poor Laska, Mom totally understands as this is how she got both of us, it was the look in our eyes that said we needed a special home, one that understands doggies with issues (especially that Border Collie).
I am sure you want to help them all, so do we, but you are doing the best you can right now, so be pleased with all that you do. May God bless you and Laska.

Who is the doggy nanny? We must have missed something.

Laska's story is very sad. We hope he gets a fantastic home!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

OH they are all so lovely. We can see that you took a real shine to Laska. You are right the eyes tell it all.. They certainly are lucky pets that you take the time to get them to their forever homes. Safe and sound and away from the evil that they went through before their ride... Big HUGS to you Mom..

Big Sloppy Kisses

Tanti baci!

Such adorable pups!! Little John is so cute and fluffy!

Laska is sooo beautiful! You could sure tell the difference in the videos that he was starting to feel more comfortable. I can only imagine how much he pulled at your heart, since just watching the videos and reading about him pulled at mine. I sure hope he finds the perfect family who can give him all the love and attention he surely deserves.

Mom really wanted to give him hugs and smooches.

I love the first pic! If I ever got up on the counter I would be busted! But shhh...I did manage to get up there and steal a piece of chicken jerky that mom left out for 5 minutes. :)

Your mom is so wonderful and so are you for letting her use your Xterra! I'm sure Laska will find a great home soon!

Laska is adorable and we sure hope he finds the very best furever home. All the dogs were special but we agree Laska had something. Your Mom did a great thing for these pups and all the other pups she has transported!

We are so glad you we're able to help these pups. Laska is a sweetheart. He is on his way to a happy life.
Penny was very skittish when she first came home. She would shake in the corner. It took about a month of love b4 she came out of it. She is so happy now.
Love Ruby & Penny
