It was Friday's 'spot'
And here was Saturday's
Time fur breakfast now! And now it is time to turn this ovfur to Mom:
Due to the icey conditions in Southern Virginia, the transport got a delayed start - at one point it was guess-timated to be around 3-4 hours late but for the most part it was 2-1/2 hours behind the original runsheet times.
Please help us to get Spike to his new home! Spike was rescued from FL. He and his brother, Sol, (who still very much needs a home) were tied up in a backyard, one with only a hole for shelter, the other with a beat up dog house. When they were rescued, they had horrible ant bites all over them and were emaciated. You should see them now! The two boys just needed love, care and attention to become the amazing companions they now are. Both are fully trained, happy, healthy and friendly dogs.
Spike is going to a “foster with intent to adopt” situation with a large and loving family in NY—we know that the family will fall in love the second they meet him! Please help Spike to have a chance at a forever home. And, if you know anyone who may be interested in Sol, please pass this along: http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=14550143. He’s the older brother, and not as traditionally attractive, but he is a big love, and all he wants is to be held and loved. Along the initial transport, one driver noted that he leaned up against him the whole time just longing for human attention and touch.
Stories like theirs just tear me up inside as well as making me feel prouder about being able to do what I can to help!
Here is the link to the Photobucket Slideshow for the four passengers AND here is the link to the Photobucket Album which included three videos. Sadly, I couldn't get too many videos in Harrisburg due to the treacherous sidewalk around The Earthlink Building. The three pups were a handful (Spike was still in his crate) and I needed to ensure all of us stayed in the upright position!
With the transport running late, the light was a factor as well.
I didn't get a chance to do a video that included the special spirit my Hagerstown MD to Harrisburg PA leg was in honour of: KYRYE - my eldest Sibe.
She'll be making her journey across The Rainbow Bridge today (Monday). She went downhill quite quickly these past several days. I spent some time with her on Saturday to determine if she was ready. She let me know she was. Once I told her we'd honour her wishes, there was such a peace about her. I could see how tired she was...and I told her she could sleep soon...and when she woke up, she would be young again.
Whilst I drove my leg today, Khyra spent time with her SibeStas. When I dropped her off around 1:30pm, Kyrye was doing okay but enroute back I got the phone call to warn me she had gotten worse in the several hours I was on the road.
By the time many of you have the opportunity to read this, she'll have made her trip. Actually, she's already there in a sense as I write this (just before 8pm EST). Only her frail furry body is curled up and resting with her other SibeStas nearby.
Thanks for keeping me safe on Sunday Kyrye! The temps were 32-35/0-2 yet you made sure I helped get four canines to furever happiness like I think you've had since early December 1994!
Khyra will be back tomorrow!
