Monday MOMday

Monday Again!
I'm resting up bekhause Auntie Di is khoming to visit!!!
******
NOW, I'll turn it over to Mom so she khan tell woo about Sunday's transport AND share another pawtential passenger in my Xterra....

Khyra's Mom Here...
Heading over to meet ANOTHER Xterra with Fenway, I spotted Hawkie on the utility pole...
Isn't that cool? I'm still kicking myself about a photo opp I missed a month or so ago. The pair was sitting on this one together...it so showed the difference in their size. I was on my way to Harrisburg to meet a tranpsort and I didn't want to stop...everytime I pass these utility poles, I think damn, I should have taken the pikh. These were just outside the development by the barn on the golf course where they keep lots of the equipment.
******
Meet FENWAY!
This is just before we saw the rendezvous spot. I kept telling him we were almost there!
And we had NOOOOOO doubt this was his ride!
Here is the link to his Photobucket album. His new mom and dad were very very nice people! He's going to be one very loved Brittany boy! He's going to have twenty some acres to call his own!
They had a female that crossed last year - I believe Fenway's furever mom said she was 18 years old!
Fenway even got to have some Salmon and Cheddar Happy Hearts! They were a hit with him too!
They even gave me a gift - a very very yummy gift: a large container of freshly picked black raspberries! (I even had to interrupt this drafting of the post to go have some MORE!)
This transport was quite the coordinated affair. It consisted of Casey and Zeus The Boxer (mom and son), Chevy The Brittany, and Fenway. Chevy started in Fayetteville, AK...Casey and Zeus joined the transport in St. Louis, MO...Fenway came up from KY to meet those three in Columbus. THEN the four headed east. When they got to Harrisburg, Casey and Zeus headed to Hartford, CT; Chevy went with his new dad to Perkasie PA. Tammy and Tom happen to live 'here' too so we met closer to York...then Fenway and I headed south to just above the Maryland line so he could meet his furever family and head back to Maryland!
******
Now, I would like you to meet Vanessa (now known as Maya):
WOW!
More Wow!
Someone loves the camera!
Mary sent us an email Sunday morning with the first picture...then sent more later...here is Maya's story:
HEY KHYRA....look at who is coming to my house today for The Last Resort ladies....I am going to be temp fostering her for a couple or few days until they either have a home for her, or a spot comes available at one of the boarding places we use down here. I have house full, but no way was I going to turn down TLR. And, this girl was in a gassing shelter in Columbus, NC. The foothills shelter. Isn't she absolutely STUNNING? She's already fully vetted, spayed, etc. She had a pink collar on when she was picked up by Columbus AC, but no one has ever come to claim her. She's only about a year old. So, here is my inauguration into fostering one of these. Khyra, please don't faint. We won't be able to see all those lovely blogs you do if you faint. And speaking of blog, feel free to put her and her story on your blog. Perhaps it will help TLR find her a home very fast.

And when Mary sent the second set of pictures, she shared an update of how she's doing:

I met Patti and got Vanessa, who is now named Maya, and headed off with her to Karen's house, where we walked around the property and she decided she wanted to try to get the little voles in the yard. Funny. She obviously likes other dogs a lot...she had no problem with the beagles or the airedale that Karen and Steve have. I think she was sniffing around for a cat, tho. LOL....After we left Karen's house, we went shopping at PetsMart, where she chose a beautiful red Martingdale (SP?) collar and leash, plus a pretty green fluffy plaid bed...and I couldn't keep her away from the Canine Carry Out Soft Treats. :-)She made friends with lots of doggies, and one black lab 10 month old pup...bigger than she is already...they played around for a while inside the store, then we came home and she's all tucked in...in fact, after I hit send on this, I'm going to go lie down with her and take a nap. She has her own bedroom downstairs with her kennel in it, but we're going to nap on the futon down there. It is very cool downstairs (basement made into living space by former owners) and the best place in the world for a sibe mix.Here are some pics for you to enjoy.Sam, I'm glad you like the name Maya. MB


SO, if anyone would be interested in this stunning girl, please let me know...I'll pass on your information.

I guess this will do it for this Monday MOMday!

Khyra will be back on her khorner tomorrow!

Hugz&Khysses From Khyra's Khorner

P.S. Once again, thank for for the kind words about the transports. It is a way we can help...it isn't much but in these trying times, every little bit helps.

One last comment from Merlin's dad after reading Sunday's post:

Merlin has been trying to convince me how extraordinary he is and now he claims this as proof positive! How can I argue?Ken

Great to see such wonderful things happening here!

Sally said...

Thanks for the photos - Maya is one pretty girl - I have no doubt she will find her forever home soon. We are so happy for Fenway - sounds like he landed on his paws.

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

PS - any of those cookies left that you could send here?

chicamom85 said...

Fenway and Maya are so cute. Mom and I always love to read your stories about doggies finding forever homes. There is a special place in heaven for people like your Mommy.

licks and sniffs,Sasha

p.s. It must be a good feeling to deliver these dogs to families that are waiting to love them. I can't imagine. Anne

happy said...

A nice way to start off Monday for sure with happy news!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Maya is so pretty! Love her photos!

And Fenway, he looks almost like a human boy... really! He looks like he could talk... human talk. We are happy for him!

Martha Basset said...

We loved Fenway and Maya - we are so happy to start the week knowing your mom has taken them a step of the way to their forever homes.
Keep up the good work Mom!
love and kisses

Huskee and Hershey said...

Your mom is doing such a great thing with the transports.. please give her a hug from us.

It's great that handsome Fenway has now got a forever home to call his own! Without people like your mom, this wouldn't be possible.

Bae Bae said...

Sure looks like an exciting monday you have there. ;)

Maxx said...

Oh my! What nice friends you have! Fenway is very cute and Maya's a beaut..! Thanks for sharing your pics with us, we always enjoy them!

Cheers,
Maxx

♥ Maya ♥ said...

wow, Maya...that's my name :)
haha
Thanks for commenting on my poem. I am glad you liked it. I wrote it for a school assignment :)

Mango said...

What a great transport. That guy looked like he knew where he was going.

Yuh, need to have the camera at all times. There are wild turkeys near momma's work and sometimes the man turkey puffs up right in front of her car and she says, "damn! where is my camera?"

Slobbers,
Mango

The OP Pack said...

Well, we thought Fenway was handsome and now Maya!!!! She has a Dakota/Qannik look to her face and body stance. What a cutie!!! She will make some family very happy. She brings tears and happy memories to Mom.

Woos, the OP Pack

Paris Rain said...

That Fenway is a super stud! I can't believe you didn't keep him for yourself, Khyra!

And what a lucky boy he is, too!

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

It breaks Mom's heart to think that these beautiful dogs would wind up in kill shelters. We are so thankful for the part your Mom does to get them into loving homes.

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Simcha said...

Fenway looks like he needs a baseball cap! He's a cool dude.

We also love Miss Maya. Some of the animal shelters in NC are the worst in the country. Some places gas dogs using car exhaust and that's not the worst of it. Glad Miss Maya is OUTTA there.

Selba said...

Maya and Fenway look so adorable!

Licks,
Adele, Vincent & Bella

The Thundering Herd said...

Woo, sounds like Fenway hit the jackpot - Happy Hearts and all.

And Maya is a beauty. We really wanted to spend some time plucking though (as if there is not enough of that in this house).

Poppy Q said...

Kyra your mom is awesome for helping Fenway get to his furrever home.

Big Monday smooches to you both.

BeadedTail said...

Maya is very pretty! We're glad that Fenway has a wonderful furever home now! In that first picture of him it looks like he's going to say "can you pass me the poupon?" Very distinguished!

Stella said...

Fenway is gorgeous and I love it when we get to see the dogs "new furever family".

Maya is beautiful and I hope she gets a furever family soon.

Good work, Phyll!

Kisses,
Stella

Tom, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan said...

Wow! What a post! First, handsome boy Fenway and then Maya. What a stunner! We wish we were closer...

Life With Dogs said...

More pooches I would be happy to take home! Great work as always. :)

Dennis the Vizsla said...

She's a beauty all right! It's too bad we're maxed out on dogs, we always want to take in all the rescues we see -- vizsla rescue out here just recently got hold of a gorgeous four-month-old GSP that we'd be happy to have as well. Maybe we should move to a farm where we could have all the dogs we want!

Maya and Kena said...

Hey Khyra!
Fenway and Maya look like really friendly dogs!
I sure like the name they gave Vanessa! *tee-hee*
Sniffs and kisses,
Maya

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Aw, Fenway is so sweet. He make me miss my Brit brother so bad. It sounds like he is getting a wonderful home, and that makes me happy!

And wow - Maya is gorgeous!!!

Luv,
Cloud

Katie, Mollie and Bobo said...

You are so lucky to have met that beautiful brittany. Fenway is just beautiful! Maya is getting so big....Oh my!

-Mollie and Bobo

Joe Stains said...

omdog she is GORGEOUS! wowowow. Sorry we haven't been khommenting, Mom is 'busy'. WHATEVER. Fenway is khool despite his terrible name ;) Mom promises the Dbacks will probably fold like a house of cards when they play the Phillies. maybe tomorrow when their best pitcher is up the Dbacks will have a chance.

Tell Aunti Di hello from AZ and the heat will be here when she gets back.

Tank said...

Fenway is really cute - hope he's happy in his new home.

jan said...

WE think Fenway is a great name and perfect for such a studly dog. Maya is more the fashion model type.

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

Maya surely is the most beauteous one. Well apart from you Khyra, of course!

The Meezers said...

oh my Maya is GORGEOUS!!!!

Thank you again MsKhyra'sMom - you are a very special lady to help all those poor woofies.

Pee Ess: Khyra - I isn't shur that our alien next door is a woofie - it's something our the mom calls a Pit bull/shepherd/lab/ mutt mix. He has a huge head and drools alot . Not like the other woofies I know. I think he's a alien. - Sammy

~lickies, Ludo

Thoughts said...

WOW! Fenway and Maya are both absolutely stunning creatures. Khyra you have the BESTEST Momma ever for helping out like she does. Where would we be in the world without people like her??? Its a sad thought. We hope that Maya will find a furever family soon. Maybe we will put a post up for her next week (this week is already filled).

Wags and woofs Khyra, and to Khyra's Mom: BLESS YOU for all you do :)

Jaime, Benson and Gibson

JB's Big World said...

Fenway and Vanessa are both pawsome! Your mom is so great helping all these woofies.
Sorry we can't seem to keep up with blogging. Mom is always too busy.....same old story.
Hope you had a furry great weekend!
--JB

YD, sometimes with Samantha & June said...

Both Fenway and Maya are very beautiful! We are glad Fenway found a furever home and we home Maya will too. We would love to have more brothers or sisters but mom said our place is too small for more. She would love to give more doggies a furever home. Maybe one day we will have a bigger house and even bigger yard.

Sam & June

Junior and Orion said...

Oh my goodness Khyra!!! Maya sure is a looker, and her coloring is similar to me (Junior). Meowm wishes she could keep a woofie, cause she would be all over Maya. We will be purring for her to get a great furever home quickly!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

That Fenway sure is a cutie. We don't know how you can do those transports and not end up with a house full of pups...

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Eric said...

Note from mom: please forgive Hank's tactlessness. This is why he is still single.
