Monday MOMday

Khlowning Around With Mom
I'm too funny!
Hey EvFURRYone!

This is my 700th post!

I had a Chester Look-A-Like khome by to celebrate
(akhtually, that is my other neighbour - 'Chloe' The Flat Dog lives on one side)
Mom tells me her transport was furry fun! Mom and her pups (my mom named their Photobukhket Album Victoria and The Ten Speeds) smelled good on my mom! That is always a bonus! She said they kharried on fur the furst miles - then settled down to sleep. They also knew the travel drill: as Mom got off the ramp fur Khabelas/Hamburg, they started singing again! I've heard their videos: JUST WAIT UNTIL WOO HEAR 'EM TOO!

Mom did take twice as long to get bakhk to me - about five or so miles from the I81/I78 split, traffikh suddenly khame to pretty much a khreepy khrawly standstill - which khontinued fur about five or so miles past the split - well, Mom kept expekhting to see SOMETHING that had khaused it...well, she's still looking! We are guessing it was just the holiday traffikh! She was khwite 'relieved' to get home when she did!

I will turn it ovFUR to her now!

Thanks Khyra - yes, I was quite relieved to get home!
Here are Victoria and Her PuppiesAt The Cracker Barrel in Harrisbug

The other five in Harrisburg
On the way up I81
I think she was saying her prayers of thanks for being saved along with her bundles of cuteness
I actually expected this is where she would orient herself. Several of the other drivers had commented she curled up next to them but I just had an eye she was going to be very watchful for her babies!
At times, she contemplated coming up front with me - she did shower me with kisses during the drive - but she just liked the middle section best!
I think this shows off part of her Boxer'ness!
When the next driver Kate arrived, she almost straightaway said what else she saw in Victoria: REDBONE COONHOUND
and if you check out that link and/or google Redbone you will see for yourself! Kate said a relative of hers breeds Redbones - that is why she saw it soooo quickly!
Some commentary about the accommodations?
Victoria hanging out whilst one of the crates of special cargo got loaded into the next limousine!

Here is the link to the Photobucket Album from today with 10 videos and 61 pictures; here is the link to just the slideshow of pictures!

Whilst the videos were uploading to Photobucket, I took Khyra for a walk - during our stroll around the neighbourhood, I got this message on my crackberry:

Hi All,
Sam asked me to shoot out an email....we arrived at our final destination where several adoptive families were waiting for us. FOUR of the 10 pupsters were adopted today! Mommy Victoria was SOOOO great with everyone--almost as if she were giving her approval to each family who adopted one of her babies. She is a wonderful dog, sweet temperament and will hopefully be adopted quickly too.
Thank you to all who helped saved these great dogs from a certain death! It's been a truly THANKFUL Thanksgiving Transport!


Khyra had mentioned in Sunday's post about a special dedication for this leg. Well, last weekend, Princess Eva and Brice The Handsome's mom sent me a message as I was heading to get Skid that one of the dogs on the weekend transport from MO to MN had gotten out during one of the first Saturday morning legs- they tried to catch her for about 40 minutes but finally had to continue. Folks continued to look for her AND local shelters/vets/etc were notified about her.

Unfortunately, Eva and Brice's mom got a note on Monday about her and posted this to FB:

The Aussie pup that escaped from from our transport this weekend has been found. Sadly she has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. Please light a candle in her honor tonight and hug your pups.

SO, Victoria and Her Pups were transported in the memory of the Aussie girl that didn't make it to safety 'here' - I'm sure she's been well received at The Rainbow Bridge.

Along with the Aussie girl, I also did the transport for Eva and Brice's special mom - she's been a great friend to us - and she's trying to inspire others to help with transports.

It is a way to help without having to bring another dog into your family - and it always results in many pleasant memories and the feeling of knowing you made a difference!

I mean, look at Victoria and her ten angels from Sunday? Can you imagine how close they were to NOT being 'here'?

So, thanks again for your support!

Khyra will be back to tell about things tomorrow!

hey Khyra,

You impress me with your modeling ability! You have perfected how to act in front of a camera. I could learn from you! And yes, you are funny! You looked like you were having a grand time posing for your mom!

Glad your mom's transport was a success. Those pups and the mom are very pretty doggies, and they look so sweet. I will keep my paws crossed that they all find loving forever homes!


p.s. great photo of the pup with his/her tongue sticking out!

Mom I have said it before but I will say it again, you are an angel!!! Thank-you and all the others who do this wonderful work for the pups that need your help so badly. I wish no dog ever had to be without a home, but things are not always that way! Thank-you so very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Monday is a very special day for us because we so love reading your stories each and every week. We were saddened to hear of the little Aussie who didn't make it, but things are certainly looking good for Victoria and her 10 pups!

Amrita said...

Hi Your Handsomeness Khyra, your posts cheered me up because I am feeling rather down... a weekend guest busted my washing machine and I just discovered it.

Gotta get it fixed now.

Did Mom give you Thanksgiving leftovers ?

Johann The Dog said...

Wow, look at those coooties!!! Coonhounds, definitely coonhound, BOL!!! And congrats on the 700th post, that cools!

Victoria and her pups are so adorable.

Love -

Mango said...

That is sad about that little pup, but she is running free now.

What a great transport to have furever families waiting right there to great their new pals.

And oh, miss Khyra, those are some sassy faces.


The OP Pack said...

Congrats on #700 - that is wonderful! Bigger congrats to the Mom for her continuing work to help others. Mom and the pups are all beautiful. We love the lighter colored eyes. Hopefully it won't be long before the remaining pups and Mom bring joy to some loving families.

MFT, good job on the clowning and posing.

Woos, the OP Pack


Hi Khyra,

I wouldn't have beeb nearly as scared of them horsies if you could have been with me. It would have been fun seeing you do zooomies with the horsies....they was so fast. Mommy was so happy but next time I'm staying home.

Congratulations to your Mom on another sucessful transport, Victoria is beautiful.


Alasandra said...

We are so sorry the Aussie Girl didn't make it. It must be heartbreaking to be so close to rescuing only to see it fall apart.

So happy Victoria and her angels made it to safety. Paws crossed they all find great homes. ~S,S,C & F

Khyra - Your mom is a saint, a true saint to dogs. Give her a great big hug from all of us. I'm so glad that those boxers are finding homes.

I love that you have a chocolate lab photo in your post! I also love seeing green grass. We won't see that again until April... but snow is nice.

We are furry sads to read about the little dog that died before getting to its FURever home.

700 posts! My goodness you are prolific! Of course, you have so much to say☺

Our momma took a look at those pups and we told her SIT STAY NO! Sometimes when she sees pups and kittens she gets this far off look in her eye and it is skeery! We told her - only senior dogs from now on! They need homes the most, especially the black ones. Momma said YES!

Ruby and Penny said...

Then the poor little one that didn't make it. It is a wonderful thing that you and the other volounteers do. It is so worth it when we see and hear these lovely outcomes.. Hugs GJ x

We were very sad to read about the poor Aussie pup though. We are sending her purrs and prayers up at the bridge - I am sure Floyd will show her around!

Jake of Florida said...

Oh what an angel your mum is Khyra!! Love your stylish poses :)


Miss Khyra
I think you secretly tell jokes to yourself.. that's why you are smiling. That was sad about aussie girl running away and now over the bridge but you are right. Look at all the ones you helped and saved.

Maybe that's why Miss K is always smiling.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Khyra and mom
congratuations on your 700th post. I cannot even imagine that ever happening!
I wanted to tell you that some from moms workie place has a neighbor that does the transport too- clear across the US i think!
Moms talks about you and your mom at workie.
Its nice to hear about those that were rescued. Their pictures were beautiful
We will light a candle for the little Aussie at the Bridge.

Furkidsmom said...

ConCatulations on your 700th post!!!

We were really sad to hear about the poor woofie that went to the Bridge.

Joe Stains said...

What a boisterous group of pups. Victoria looks like she was a great Mom. We definitely think that the coonhound was spot on, what a great combo!

We are sorry to hear the fate of the Aussie girl, but think of how many have made it to furever homes!
