Thinking and Thanking Thursday

Thinking and Thanking time againBut this one will be a bit difFURent as it involves six states and multiple humans!
After Mom had her Photobukhket together from Dodi's Big Adventure, she shared them with the nice lady Mary that lives in Charlotte. Mary often drives legs on the transports Mom does. In fakht, she was one of the drivers fur that special LASKA fella!

Mary was also the nice lady that helped save Maya - she was one of the four huskies Mom drove a month or so ago (Polar, Zona, and Akayla were the others).

Here are some of Mary's khanines: Tommy, Connor, Winslow, and Olivia.

She's been fostering Connor whilst he did the HW treatment - which he has now khompleted so he'll soon be leaving fur his furever home in NY!

Mary said she was expekhting Irina on Saturday fur she was bringing these two with her so they khould settle into their furever home in Charlotte Ginger and Cinnamon

Woo khan khlikhk to read about them!

Khame from the nice Irina lady's reskhue

Okay, now here is where it gets even more special. I'm going to khopy out the message Mary sent my mom

Right before Irina drove up this weekend with her Butterbean girls, Ginger and Cinammon that went to a fabulous adopter here in Charlotte, I saw a desperate plea from a Coastal German Shep Rescue out of Sandy Hook, VA.

They needed to get a shep to Alabama, to an adopter I know there. I asked Irina if she could take Asia, the shep, back to Atlanta with her this morning and meet the adopter who was driving up from Alabama to Atlanta. Of course, as all of you can immediately figure out, the answer was YES!

These are pics of Irina with Asia at my house yesterday evening, and a couple more this morning, as they left Charlotte to go back to Atlanta. I just got a call from Irina that she has transferred Asia to the adopter and she's now on her final leg to her forever home.

This is a very interesting story. Asia was one of 18 dogs taken from a house in Maryland. The dogs had never been outside in a year or more. Never. Most did not know what grass was, or how to walk on it. Even the humans in the house defecated and urinated on the floor. I can't even imagine...well, okay, yes I can, but don't want to very much.

Asia was considered the most socialized of all the white sheps. The adopter in Alabama has a huge heart for white sheps, especially those with special needs. Such a nice ending for another wonderful creature that had such horrid beginnings....Mary

Please meet Asia ***Asia with the nice Irina*Befur hitting the road to GAWoo will notice which breed Irina is partial to by her license plate BUT she now has an understanding of OUR special khwalities too!

BTW, Irina lives near The Six Flags part of Atlanta - nice Mary told my mom Irina was safe from the flooding but she had experienced lots and lots of rain.

Mary mentioned that Asia's furever mom had recently adopted another white GSD. Mary had been part of Sheba's transport ****Sheba meeting her furever mom fur the furst timeIt looks like she approves!Sheba is now khalled Mellow. Her new mom said that name sooooo sums up her temperamentHere is a message Mary had received from her furever mom

Mellow is progressing. She has learned she can come and go as she pleases thru open doors. She is still very cautious, but wags her tail when I return to a room or get up in the morning. She is clearly bonding and more content with her new surroundings.


How do you like her clip down? She seems to have developed a fresh personna with this new look. She feels good.


The name, Mellow, was the best depiction of her temperament. Hope you all like it.
She is definitely of WGSD origin. Who the small dog was, we will never know. She has the "stick by my master" mentality of a GSD. I was counting on that.

I have decided Not to do HW treatment for a couple of weeks. Vet says this will not be of big consequence, and I think it will allow her to get her bearings even more. It is so unfortunate she must be confined again for that. I left her alone with indoor-outdoor roaming freedom 2-3 hours yesterday like I do my others. She was fine and happy to see me.

I hope woo have enjoyed this special Thinking and Thanking Thursday!

Mary had asked Asia and Sheba/Mellow's mom if it was okay to share these wonderful stories. Mary also hoped we would share the great news of Ginger and Cinnamon on the famous Khyra's Blog!

Woo got it!

Hugz&Khysses,

Mellow looks like a marshmallow (the flower not the candy http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/366518/marsh-mallow) to us, she is adorable. Loved the tail after her haircut.

pughy said...

More fabulous happy ending stories from these so special people.I just love the happy faces on these darling woofies. How awful the beginings. One can only imagine the depravity in that house. Poor poor things and the humans are to be pitied in a way as there must be something so wrong there. Enough.. Happy endings are what we like.. Thanks for sharing.. Hugs GJ x

I am sooooo thankful for all the people involved in rescuing animals that need help. Transporters are the unsung heroes in many rescue organizations. They play such an important role in so many rescues. Give your mom an extra sloppy, extra slurpy kiss for us!
