Monday MOMday

We were deeply saddened late Sunday morning to learn Miss Snickers had khrossed.
Mom was thankful fur the special guardian angel she had fur her transport from Hagerstown to Harrisburg.
Befure I turn the post ovfur to Mom, I want to share a song that I think khovers the fight Miss Snickers put up...I also think the words in the song have a lot to say to all of us

Our hearts go out to her furamily in Ioway...and our hearts go out to all of us...once again, we all feel the loss...we all have an idea of the pain our hoomans will feel when it is our time to leave too fur we are feeling it now.


Thanks Khyra - once again, thanks for letting me take The Xterra on Sunday! The first two pups, were part of the original transport - they were the ones coming from Paragould AK BUT they ended up FLYING UP HERE!!!

Here is the first pic I got to see of Bandit - this is how he used to live BEFORE some kind soul took an interest in him and got his 'hooman' to surrender him.
Please take a look at his story on The Last Resort Rescue available pets page
What a special fella!
He wanted the entire back to crash in
I will admit I was disappointed for I wanted him to ride shotgun so I could pet him for the 75 mile journey BUT
I mean, just look at that face!
He changed positions as we approached Carlisle
Some as we waited for his next chauffeur
I mean HANDSOME doesn't begin to describe him!
His right eye was brown with the left one being blue and brown.

Here is the link to his PHOTOBUCKET SLIDESHOW and here is the link to his PHOTOBUCKET ALBUM which includes five videos. Due to the time of day, some of the pics are a bit dark. I got to Harrisburg about 4:35 so the sun was beginning to descend for the day. I was happy the transport was ahead of schedule AND that I made great time getting to Harrisburg from Hagerstown. This gave me a chance to get some videos I actually hadn't expected to be able to get!

When I called Sam to say he was on his way to Hamburg, I asked if he had a furever home lined up. She said people were very interested him and were going to meet him when the transport arrived in NJ! They seemed to have their hearts set on him. I told her they won't regret it one bit! He needs to learn to trust a bit...he did not willingly get into vehicles. I had to scoop him up in Harrisburg to get him to his next ride!

Whilst waiting, I sat down on a parking berm and got LOTS of kisses from him. He's about as sweet as they come!

Thanks again for your support!

Khyra and Merdie will be back tomorrow!

Hey Khyra,

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Angel Snickers. I always get so sad when I read/hear about a doggy passing the Rainbow Bridge. I hope she went in peace. Khyra, you did a lovely tribute to her, and good job on the song. You are a special and loving dog!

So glad your mom's transport went smoothly. Pretty dogs as always!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

The news of the passing of Snickers made all of us very sad. She did put up a grand fight and tried very hard. At least now we can take comfort in knowing that she will never be sick again.

Bandit really is a handsome boy. We hope he can discover the joy of a real home after what he has had. We loved his waggily tail and the way he watched your Mom so closely when she was talking to him. Another round of applause to her for her good works.

Woos, the OP Pack

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Bandit is one beautiful, I mean handsome, doggie. You and your breed of doggies are one of the most beautiful! It is so great beyond words the help that you and your mom do to help find forever homes for those in need. We need more like you.

That's a good looking batch of dogs, especially Bandit after clean-up. How sad that he had to live that way. Thanks to your mom, Khyra, they're all on their way to a brand new life.

Ruby Bleu said...

Lots of Licks, Ruby

The Thundering Herd said...

But of course Bandit sat in the back if you wanted him in shotgun. That is what we Sibes do - the opposite of what you want.

Ruby and Penny said...

We we're heartbroken to see that Snickers crossed the bridge.

Bandit is a sweetie. He is going to make his new parents really happy. Great job in helping to get him away from his previous life.
Love Ruby & Penny

Amy & the house of cats said...

We are so sad about Miss Snickers, we had really hoped things were going to get better for her. We know that she is better off at the bridge but it is still sad.

It looks like the transport went very well - I bet Snickers was watching down to be sure it was ok.

Khyra, what a lovely sentiment for our sweet Snickers. I bet she was thrilled to be your Mom's guardian angel for the day for her transport. One guardian angel guarding another angel. Just perfect. Sending you all in your home both some extra special wiry loving for rescuing that beautiful boy. Eric xx
