Monday MOMday

But(t) furst some Merdie and Me!When we furst khame down, it was just flurrying -but it began to intensify! There had been some golfers out - one foursome khut their round short but then Mom saw this hearty soul khoming down #10
So as to not make it TOO obvious she wanted to khapture this guy having LOTS of fun,
Mom took me out fur a photoshoot - as woo khan see, even I was wondering what he was doing out there! I suggest woo bigify all the pikhs! They are khwite funny!
I'm glancing to see if there are others khoming of if he's it!
I watched him head toward the green for #11
Making sure he made it
Then I sat so I khould start khollekhting snowflakes!
It was early in the 'weather event' as woo see
I was trying to imagine lots and lots more!
And wondering when the flashie beastie would go bakhk inside
I thought this might satisify her photo needs! IT DID!
Meanwhile, bakhk in the ranch...
Bekhause it was a wet yukhky one, we didn't get a walk BUT Mom let us ride along to the grocery store! We'll be bakhk tomorrow with some more pikhs from the ride AND from what was left of the snow on Sunday morning when we got up!
I want to turn this ovFUR to Mom so she khan tell woo about Degas!!!

Thanks Khyra! Oh what to say about Degas???

The first thing is that his name is pronounced like 'what happens in, stays in' Degas!
He had been crated for some of the trip but the drivers for the leg to Hagerstown hadn't and he was fine! I offered him shotgun but he said he'd rather sleep! But before he conked out, he agreed to some pics!At the Cracker Barrel in HarrisburgI believe Tori snuck into this shot with us! After all, the leg was for her - here is the video where I mention Tori's memory!

He was stunning and sweet and kissy and so full of life! It was a true miracle he made it all the way to New Jersey for each leg's driver didn't want to pass him on! His overnight stay in Roanoke ALMOST became his furever home! Here is the note shared Saturday evening

Degas is settling in really well at my house. My husband wants to know if he has a home yet. We have 18 Dalmatians and a GSD here, as well as a couple of mixes, yet he thinks we need one more!! By the way, 13 of those Dalmatians are available for adoption!

Degas really likes the dals, wagging his tail and trying to get them all to play with him. He and Ashes have decided that rope toy tugging is a great thing to do. He is a gorgeous dog and someone is going to be getting a great new family member.

We will tuck him in bed in about an hour, but felt like he would be a good rider tomorrow if he spends a lot of energy tonight. He is a sweetheart!

Debi is a Dalmation Rescue angel - and often will host the overnight legs that pass through Roanoke!

One last shot before I closed the hatch and let Lisa chauffeur him to Allentown where he got to meet Frosty's mom!

What a pawesome tranport for a very loving pup! There are lots of pictures and videos at his Photobucket album!

Here is the link to the SLIDESHOW ON PHOTOBUCKET - the photos are in reverse order as I uploaded the videos first THEN added the pics - it was getting late in the evening AND there were LOTS of things in the GooglieReaderie SO please forgive me! The slideshow link IS in the reverse order (or at least I think it is)!

Thank you Tori for watching over us! I also spotted dozens (and I do mean plural) of hawks in the trees and in the sky (mostly red-tails)!

Thank you to all that supported and helped with Degas's transport!


We also need to send some words of support and comfort to Fenris and his furamily - one of his sisfurs CHARYBDIS crossed unexpectedly Sunday afternoon. Please show them some love during this difficult time.

Khyra and Merdie will back tomorrow!

You have snow! I hate the snow.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We were all shocked about Charbydis! You are so good about spreading news and helping wherever you can.

It's been a long, stressful day, so we're going to tuck Jan and her sick headache into bed and weigh the covers down so she can't get up until we're .. uh, until she's rested.

Have a good night!

ben said...

not to sure what the white stuff is all about. But it looks like you enjoy it. Love Degas' ears - those are personality pluses. Thanks for sharing your momma to drive doggies to safety.


We got a little white stuff too!
Us kitties might play outside too
if it is not too cold out for our
kpaws. Degas is beautiful dog, we
all wish a furever home will happen
soon! (((♥))) to Degas! :)

Sam said...

18 Dalmatians! That kind woman must have quite a system for telling them apart.

Degas is just stunning - once again, we are so thankful that people like your mom are out there to help with these things!

MAX said...

Hey there all of you!
What fun to have some snow!!! about sending some south perhaps!? We seldom (if ever) get to see it!
Your little 'transported one' certainly is cute. We are so happy for him...hope his new Forever home is wonderful. You really do such amazing work!
Lots of love
Your friends in SA

Sonic said...

Snow looks AWESOME!!! I wanna play with the cool white stuff!

The closest thing I have to snow in Singapore is my Pops' dandruff. And that's just gross.


Cocorue said...

your mumster and her friends are ANGELS .....and mumster thinks that being around you will make her a better person ha!

that funny hooman knows i've NOT seen snow and scrapped the ice cubes and told moi to IMAGINE...the cheek of her bol..... as i know snow is softer ( well, she's always yearning for snow, silly hooman! )

TQ beautiful blue eyes

Clive said...

Snow! We would so love to get some snow. We only had it once last winter and that was totally unexpected and amazing!

Degas looks like a great dog - glad he got to his forever home with your Mom's help, Khyra.

love and woofs

Jake of Florida said...


You look so lovely with a few snowflakes on your shoulders!!!

Ah, the secret to being among the first ten or so to comment on your bloggie is to get up way too early - -- it's 6 am now -- but it was 4 am when the alarm went off so Dogdad could fly to D.C. for a few days -- where perhaps he too will have snowflakes on his shoulders.

We loved the photos of Degas -- but are sad at all the doggies who have been crossing over the Bridge.

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

The OP Pack said...

Degas, along with Qannik, all so closely resemble our Dakota. Mom got leaky watching the videos and looking at the pictures. But it wasn't all that sad - it brought a lot of smiles. One day we hope to have another white blue-eyed girl here with us again. Meanwhile we can watch Degas over and over.

Glad you got some snow. All we got overnight was rain. But they are telling us again snow tonight, rain and mix tomorrow, then snow again overnight Wed. Do they really know what it really will do?

Golf can be addicting, but that guy is ridiculous. Great pics of you and all your flake collecting.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

Teddy Bear said...

I love the pictures with the snow on your fur coat. Snow is such a lovely sight. I can't wait to see the white stuff! We're so glad that Degas is loving his furever home.

It looks COLD i those pics, Khyra!

Degas looks SO SWEET!

We were so shocked to hear about Charybdis. So very sad.


Mango said...

Hey, why not finish the game in the snow. Makes it more challenging. I am unimpressed with the scant flakes. I hope you got some real snow to make you super happy.


The Paw Relations said...

Great snow pictures!

We were very shocked to learn about Charbydis's passing over. We have been to leave a message of support on her blog.

Snowie Baby said...

ure so lucky to have the snow! it never snow here in spore!

deagas is beautiful! i wish he'll get a gd and forever home soon!

love, snowie

Pedro said...


I figured you had snow too after I saw Chester's post! As I told Chester, I can't let Ziggy see either of your posts because he would be so jealous as we only got rain, rain, rain on Long Island. So not fair!


Mack said...

Congrats on the snow. We got a bunch of snowflakes Friday but nothing stuck. And Degas seems like a real friendly type of guy. I just know he will be loved in his new home!

Frankie Furter said...

I hope that Degas gets to STAY in his new home.
I love to see you Khollecting flakies.

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Khyra, you didn't look very happy to be outside, at first. Too cold for you?

Degas is beautiful and I know, thanks to your mom and everyone that takes a part in rescue, he has a beautiful life ahead!

Thanks for doing what you do!

elbouwii said...

Gus said...

We saw some of your mom's transport photos on Facebook, and agree that Degas is one handsome pup. Not as lovely as Khyra or Merdie, but cute. And we love the eyes.


KB said...

Degas is so handsome that I'm tempted to come scoop him up. I hope that he finds a wonderful forever home. Please keep us posted. Khyra - your mom is a saint of dogs, and all of us dog lovers thank her from the bottoms of our hearts.

As for the golfer, sometimes I think that people are taking photos like that of me on my bike when I'm out there in the driving snow. We all go crazy in our own ways.

I've used the 'pretend dog photo shoot' trick to try to photograph illegal hunters. The problem is that they're armed so I have to be verrrrrrry careful!

The Thundering Herd said...

Glad you got some snow. We had a blast in ours. And Degas is a beauty.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Khyra & Merdie
Degas is gorgeous. He reminds us of Daisy. We're glad your mom was able to help get him to a forever home.
Love Ruby & Penny
Pees - Glad you got some snow. We have some and its freezing here. We spent all weekend in hibernation mode.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi Khyra (and Merdie too!) We love the pictures, that golfer was crazy! And Khyra you look so beautiful with the snowflakes on you!

We didn't know either Charbydis or Prince but we have stopped by both blogs to send some good purrs and prayers to them and their familys.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, we got the white mess too! About 7 inches worth! And mom says Degas is a doll!

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh Khyra, we are so jealous - we want snow here in Scotland!
We are fed up with yuchy rain!
Your mom always has the cutest dogs to transport - you wonder how come they end up in rescue!
Having said that look at us.....
Sorry to hear your sad news.
love and kisses
Martha & bailey xxx

JackDaddy said...

I am surprised that people can give up such cute puppies!

Everyone is getting snow but me. I demand a recount! :)

Ginger Jasper said...

I see you have a little snow and how much you love it.. I was so shocked when I read about Charbydis passing. I have not worked out yet what happened. Now that darling on the transport. How absolutely darling. I am sure he will be such a loving woofie in his new home. The photographs are all so lovely. LOved the post today as always.. Hugs GJ xx

The Furry Kids said... Mom is love love loving Degas. Something about the ears, she says...

Benny and Lily said...

Oh Khyra where is your snow hat?

Junior and Orion said...

We had snow here too, but we didn't go stand in it like you did. We do think you look furry purrty with the snowflakes on you!

That Degas is a cutie! We hope he finds a great furever home quickly!!!!!

Ludo van Doggy said...

What a handsome guy!
I never got very much snow last year so I hope we get better this time. The snow suits you lots!
~lickies, Ludo

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Khyra you look especially beautiful dusted in snow! So glad mom's transport went well and that bad weather didn't deter Degas' trip. Tell Merdie "Hi" from me, and ...let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Scout 'n Freyja said...

The snowflake collection is happening over at our house, too! We gots a good start on the stuff and we is supposed to gets more and more and more! Woo-hoo. Only problem is that the temps are getting really and really low and momma worries 'bout our feets gettin' too cold. Last winter she saw us doing the holdy-paw thing and she gots all worrieds.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh snow Khyra we are so jealous.. We sure wish we could play in that stuff with you..
Degas is so cute. It was so sweet of mom to do the tribute to Tori. Mom almost quit watching since it made her leak too..

Big Sloppy Kisses

Huffle Mawson said...

Degas seems like a cute boy! I am glad you and Merdie have some snow to play in now.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

We got some of the white stuff too. It is very cold outside. Glad you all got outside for awhile, the mom here stayed inside all the day long.

Mochi and Mommy said...

Degas is soooo cute!

You're so cute sitting in your snow! :)


Inky and Molly said...

Oh, that looks mighty cold and frosty over there. Just as well you have all that fur...

BeadedTail said...

That golfer was crazy out there in the snow but you looked cute Khyra! Good to see Merdie back at the ranch too!

Your mom and her furiends certainly are angels by helping so many animals. Thanks to all of them!

Isis said...

Oh you are so beautiful in the snow! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the snow!

Wild Dingo said...

meemsnyc said...

Aw Khyra! You look so cute with your snowflakes!

Dory and the Mama said...

Khyra, you look furry cute with your snow coat!!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Khyra!
I know you are waiting for more snow!
I'd be there inside with Merdie!
Degas is adorable!
Kisses and hugs


Miss K and Merdie
Golfers are a strange breed. Perhaps they need pantyloons too if they plan to golf in the snow. Mine kept me toasty warm. Except now Mango keeps staring at me.

Jazzi said...

Isnt it fun having snow?? Snow does look good on you. Must be the black shades in your fur that makes it stand out,


Tweedles -- that's me said...

I am so happy you are getting some snow! Your looking mighty happy!
I hope your mom drives careful in the snow flakes!
Thank you for the update on the "snow flake pup".
We are so happy he will soon be in a forever home.

Hi, Khyra -

Degas is such a cute pup. We don't know Charbydis but will go and pay our respects.

Love -
