Monday MOMday

Welkhome to Monday MOMday (Kholumbus Day Edition)Saturday morning I khame down to see that lots of my furiends had SNOW! I figured mine had to be on the way!
I got kind of bored sitting out in the yard waiting and decided a nap under my tree would be a good way to pass the time! I mean, it was 65F/18C during the afternoon - isn't THAT a snow temp?
I was STILL looking Saturday night - no dice (but we did get SOME sunset pikhs Mom will share on Friday)!
Sunday -YES, it was SUN-day!
I'm not thinking it is headed this way yet
I know we'll get some EVENTUALLY! I'm patient - I khan wait!
Here is the khool khup that was part of Mango Minor's pressies to us! Isn't it FURry nice?
Well, it is time to turn this over to Mom...she'll tell woo about the four passengers she khollekhted in Martinsburg and chauffeured to Khrakhker Barrel in Harrisburg!
Ah yes, another enjoyable trip along I81 (save for it being rutt season when it is best to not look along the sides of the road) with four furry special pups for The Last Resort Rescue
You can see more info about them on the page I've linked to - Please take a look at their stories so once again you will understand what LUCKY dogs these four are!
Chaz (L); Joceyln (R)
Chaz (L); Pumpkin (R)
Dahlia who became Scruffy who became Socks
DSS and her lion toy
Jocelyn sleeping with Pumpkin


Of course, there are LOTS more pictures AND four videos at the Photobucket Album link for them. They got along sooooo well! I did have to chuckle as we got back on I81 after I picked them up from their overnight host. I looked back to see Chaz and Jocelyn necking like two teenagers in the back of The Xterra.

DSS was sooo scared to start - just shivered and kept giving me THOSE eyes in the front seat but I kept petting her to reassure her she was safely out of Gaston now. Pumpkin surely held her own with the 'big' doggies. Jocelyn ALMOST tried to help ride shotgun with DSS - several times she thought about it but ended up snoozing in the back instead!

It was another rewarding way to spend a morning that began at 5am. As soon as I saw their happy tails and special smiles it was so worth it!

Tom (their overnight host) was also the lucky host for Akayla, Maya, Polar, and Zona at the end of August - they were his first exposure to huskies (LOL). Here is what he named this transport

I hereby name this run the "Mixture of Mutts Marching to Milford"

Thanks again for your support AND your kind words about Khyra's Khorner! It means more than we can find words to express it!

After all, it is NOT about 'us' - it is all about the special creatures that let us into their lives and ask very little of 'us' - just that we help take care of them since they can not fend safely for themselve!

Khyra will be back tomorrow to tell you about 'things' - I'm not completely sure what she's got in mind but you know Khyra! I'm sure she won't let us down!

Happy Thanksgiving to our friends in Canada!

Ben said...

That is what I call precious cargo.

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

We love the mug!!

The cat one would say that we are royalty and deserve lots of treats. And we have fur coats. MOL.

Sam said...

Ditto to what Ben said! You are an amazing person!

Khyra, I'm afraid 65F is still a bit too warm for snow. I think you need it to go down another 30 degrees, at least.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

It's hard to imagine anyone using a gas chamber in this day. What a horrible way to kill the animals! We're glad some are rescued.

Princess Eva and Brice said...

Woo already know Momma's thoughts on your passengers so we just wanted to let you know that we're parked by the patio door waiting for the snow to start again.

The Other End Of The Leash said...

For all they have been through, they look so calm and beautiful -- it must be your influence. :) Thank you.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Hey, congrats to you and your mom on your award from the Bumpass Hounds & Cats. We think you deserve it.

Inky and Molly said...

what a sunny spot you got there...
That looks like a great load of fur passengers. God work, Khyra's mum!!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

You look good in the sunshine!

All those furries look so much at home in the Xterra!

Teddy Bear said...

What a great mug from Mango. What beautiful passengers for this week. You must have a sniff fest after every transport.

Tanuki Maxx said...

Hi Khyra! We can always count on you for making our days brighter by sharing your stories and pics with us! Luvly cup! Thanks for sharing and have a happy Monday!!


Furkidsmom said...

Those are furry lucky pups. Mom got all leaky eyed when she read their stories.

Love the mug - that is a cool saying....

Mango said...

MFT, I am looking forward to hear what you have to say. I hope we get that nice sunshine again today. No snow, please.


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

Another wonderful transport, another good deed done!

The OP Pack said...

Without further ado - mega congrats to you and the Mom for your superb award from the Bumpass Hounds. So very well-deserved!!!!!

Khyra, we have the temps here for snow but the snow gods have once again decided to go north of us. It's not even mid-October and we have temps near freezing every night.

Mom's passengers were all so sweet - DSS is a beautiful reminder of our sweet Muffin from a few years back. Thanks again to your Mom for what she does.

Tail wags, the OP Pack

The Thundering Herd said...

We are looking everywhere for our snow, too, but can't seem to find it anywhere.

Alasandra said...

They are all gorgeous dogs but we especially like Jocelyn. We are so glad that she was given a shot at life. ~S,S,C & F

Sparkee Spud said...

Khyra, I tried getting my human to mail you some snow, but she assured me it would not make it to you. I'm sorry. I tried really really hard.

Frankie Furter said...

Khyra, If I had any snow I would be more than glad to give it ALL to you. Hang in there big girl, I am afraid it is coming...sooner than we think. SHIVER SHIVER SHIVER

One of the pack said...


Mom is doing a great job transporting. This crew looks like a lot of fun even if they aren't huskies.

Sorry you didn't get snow this weekend. Us either. Of course it is a monumental event when we get snow.

Miss your fluffy tail!

Hey Khyra and Mom,
You are invited to download your BRAVO-ZULU AWARD IN MEMORY OF SPENCER from our today's post. It is a little ironic that your post today about yet another early morning successful transport comes on the same day that we issue only our third presentation of the coveted (we hope) BZ Award.

Your millions of followers are welcome to stop over and read about why you were chosen (as if they don't already know). Youse guys are an inspiration for the rest of us to try to do our part to help homeless animals find a safe, loving, furever home. We pups and kitties have to encourage our people to find a shelter or rescue organization to work with. Find one in their area and volunteer to help out in whatever way they are able. These tough economic times are really stressing the resources of the shelters and rescues; when all else fails - send money. Anyway, we'll get off of our soapbox now and congratulate you both on your selection and we hope you receive the recognition that you deserve for what you do.

Hi Khyra,

I hope you get snow soon cause I know how much you are looking forward to it. Maybe we could work out a deal where I send you all the snow we are suppose to get in the coming months. Deal?

You are truly a saint.

"After all, it is NOT about 'us' - it is all about the special creatures that let us into their lives and ask very little of 'us' - just that we help take care of them since they can not fend safely for themselves!"

I couldn't agree more strongly.

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

I love the way you write about all the different personalities your passengers have. Necking in the back? too funny.

We so love what you are doing.

Anonymous said...

It must be so rewarding to know you're helping those nice doggies get to forever homes. You both deserve an extra biscuit today:)

Congratulations of your award from the BH&K!

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Aww.. those sweet pups, how awful though to think what could have happened to them if people like your mum hadn't helped them.

That mug is very cool!

Keep looking for the Snow, Khyra! :-)

Holly & Zac. :-)

BeadedTail said...

Cute mug - both on and in the computer!

The transports were all sweeties! It's so wonderful they were rescued and we hope they have the happy life they deserve!

Anna the GSD said...

Mom said she can totally see why your mom does transports! Mom also said if your mom or anyone needs help whenever down in Alabama, to let her know!

Oh, and mom loves that coffee cup, I may have to get her one for Xmas!

The Furry Kids said...

I'm waiting for snow, too! Mom is not. BOL
Those are some pretty cute passengers in your xterra. Please thank your mom for sharing their pics with us.

Happy Monday!
Your pal,

Angus Mhor said...

Khyra-Face, those are definitely some happy hounds in your Xterra! And, darlin', it's got to be LOTS colder before the white stuff falls on you-but it will! I know it!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

They are all so sweet. We are so happy that they all are getting to their forever homes safe and sound..
We are sorry about the snow Khyra. There are probably lots more chances of that in the near future...

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Danielle said...

Well, it appears that I am getting your snow today. I will attempt to throw some pawfulls to you!:)

Brownie said...

Woo! Khyra, I love the pictures of you. Mom, the photos of the dear little rescues are SO cute! We are grateful to you for providing our furiends new opportunities!

Benny and Lily said...

We hear a lot of snoring from that car ride!

Abby said...

Hi, Khyra...

I finally got my Mom to sit down & help me catch up...

She says she doesn't know how you & your Mom post everday with all that you have to do...

I mean you have to make sure your yard is secure & that your Paw Placement is perfect & that your biscuits are in just the right place...

And, your Mom has to take care of you & keep the flashie beast ready & drive in all the transports...

Your days must be longer than ours...

Abby xxxooo

meemsnyc said...

We hope you get some snow soon!

Huffle Mawson said...

Sorry, 18C is not a snow temp. Maybe next time?

Your mum is very good to do all these transports.

Junior and Orion said...

Khyra-----no snow????? Don't worry it will be there soon enough!!

Khyra's Mom--look at your go with your transports! What lucky woofies!!

Yes, our Meowm knows what we share with the world. She figures she doesn't have much to we don't worry too much about what we paw.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Khyra!
I hope your get snow soon!
Chaz looks like Ivy!
Kisses and hugs

Sparky said...


You're still waiting for snow too, I see... I've been so jealous this week, seeing that all our bloggin' doggin' friends are getting snow! It was about 18 degrees here too... Don't you think that's good snow weather? The humans don't quite think so. Oh well. I'm sure we'll get it soon!

I hope you had a grrrrEAT weekend my friend!


Aki and Poopie said...

that mug is SO right!

as usual, loving your Monday MOMdays... keep the good news rolling!

drooly kisses,


Maggie and Mitch said...

Just before mom left my breeder's house wayyyyyyy back when I was 8 weeks old, he told my mom that puppies are not little people in fur coats! He couldn't have been more wrong! My breeder wins all kinds of obedience awards so that must be why he made that stoopid statement!

Love ya lots,

Anonymous said...

Thank you for sharing all the lovely pictures on stories on your blog! You´re on in a million, Khyra!

Tweedles -- that's me... said...

Look at those adorable faces.
We can feel the love in thier hearts.
Thank you for helping these fur babies


Woodrow, Luna, MJ Campanella said...

Our grand parents have snow so we were waiting for ours too - but it never did come

Woodrow - Sweetie - MJ

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Khyra I think at 65 degrees there you may have to wait a while for snow still. We had thought we would get a little but it never showed up (and I admit I was glad).

And be sure to tell her mom what a wonderful thing it is she does transporting these poor puppies. She is bringing them to a wonderful life - what a great thing to do to help out!

Two Schnauzers from New England said...

Hi, Khyra -

We really like the picture of you being upside down on the computer screen. We like reading stories that have happy endings because every pup and dog deserve a good home.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Those sure are some cute pups!


PS. I'm still waiting for my snow too.

Wild Dingo said...

ooooo those passengers really are special pups. they're sooo cute. how do you do it? how do you let these little cuties go? i'd be pup napping and pup-hording everyone of them. i'd be a failed foster...fur sure!
