Monday MOMandMeDay - With Sad News From Sunday

We learned Sunday afternoon that Ziggy has left us

Please stop by his blog and paw some words fur his furamily. Please keep his brofur Pedro in your thoughts as well. I'm sure he'd appreciate if woo would send some love his way as well.

We'll miss woo Ziggy!

Happy Trails AND Happy FLUFFY Tail too!

Please run free and healthy!
I know from reading the pawesome khomments that many of woo have already stopped by BUT I wanted to pass it along just in khase woo hadn't heard


Paws khrossed fur snow!
But in the meantime, I'll pose

Seeing if the golfers are watching!

Watch Out Bloomsburg Husky

Watch out Northern Illinois Husky

Watch out Dubs!

Now, I'll turn this ovFUR to Mom

Thanks Khyra!

Once again, I appreciate you permitting me to take The Xterra to pick up this handsome fellaSay hi to Red The Handsome GentHe did THIS the entire trip from Hagerstown to Harrisburg - only the locations in the back of The Xterra changed!

At one point, he did assume the StudMuffin pose BUT he shifted before the flashie beast could get him!See, slightly moved!Isn't he just gorgeous?Yum! Happy Hearts!

More Happy Hearts!I mean WOW!!!

He was an unbelievably sweet boy! He was well mannered and just a joy to transport!

He made himself right at home on his overnight hosts' bed Saturday evening although he did move to the floor by the bed when one of their dogs wanted their regular spot.

I had to keep looking in the rearview mirror to make sure he was still in The Xterra because he didn't make a peep! He gave gentle little kisses and took his Happy Hearts soooooo very well!

Sunday's weather was quite a bit warmer (+2C/35F) than last Sunday's -10C/15F BUT unfortunately it was wet and overcast so there aren't many outside pics. Since he was just a contented passenger, I didn't get many enroute either!

It is hard to believe that no one is missing this boy! I know I am even though we only spent two hours together!

Here is his Photobucket Slideshow AND here is his Photobucket Album which includes three videos!

I just know the people that are adopting him via The Last Resort Rescue are already in love!

In fact, here is the note Sam sent us Sunday afternoon:

Hi All!!

Thank you for keeping Red safe and warm on his ride to his new family! He has met them and they are in love!

Thank you all SO much!!

Hugz&Khysses From Khyra's Khorner

Another great haul! :)

Just came from Ziggy's blog, that was a sad surprise...

BeadedTail said...

We hadn't met Ziggy but we're still sad to hear the news. Our thoughts are with his furiends and family.

Khyra, you are the pretty football player ever!

Red is a very handsome boy and we're glad he already has a furever home to go to !

i said...

We're going to miss Ziggy.

Nice shots!

Suka said...

hey Khyra,

Very sad about Ziggy. I never met Ziggy but I went to his and Pedro's blogs and my heart is crying. So sad. He was too young to go. Thanks for letting us know.

And what is up with green grass? Snow - it never stays as long as we want it to! Nice football, by the way!

Oh, Red is a very cool looking doggy! Glad he had a good trip with you mom!


The Thundering Herd said...

Sad for Ziggy. So terrible to lose a furry one.

Love the pics of you and the football. Quite the pose.

And you know we love the Reds!

Huskee and Hershey said...

We were so sad to hear that Ziggy went to the Rainbow Bridge.. but this is not 'goodbye'.. it's 'till we meet again'.

Love the pic of you crossing your paws, Khyra!

We were so very sad to hear about Ziggy's passing. Such a very sweet boy - so sad and way too quick. We have pawed our thoughts to his family.

We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the videos and photos of gorgeous Red. He is going to make his new family go Ooohhh and Ahhhhhh over and over - he is just so handsome. And thanks again to Mom for helping him find his new home.

Happy Monday, the OP Pack

the_Dogfather said...

Our thoughts and prayers are with Ziggy and his family.

Khyra, looks like you are ready for superbowl!

RED - he sure looks like me, before i put on weight....haha!

Gus said...

Red is such a handsome fellow, we are glad he has found a furever family.

And, we do not know how the golfers can concentrate on their game with such lovely scenery. Do they get a free stroke for the distraction factor?


Clive said...

We were very sorry to hear about Ziggy.

Red is one fabulous dog!

take care

Pedro said...

Khyra & Kyhra's Mom,

Thank you so much for your kind words and post about Ziggy. All my peoples' eyes are red and swollen from tears and I am so lonely. We know it will get better but it's gonna take a long time. We really appreciate your friendship.

Poor Ziggy's family.

We got snow. But it was no fun because it was all wet and slushy and momma actually broke a sweat shoveling.


SEDONA said...

Hi Khyra,
I just got caught up with your latest goings-on...what a scare you gave your hoomans, girl!! I *know* it's in your blood to run but you gotta get a handle on that...our hoomans can only take so much, y'know?! I'm soooo glad you came to your senses and let yourself be caught. Whew.
Sorry to hear about your pal Ziggy...he looked like a sweetheart.
My snow's pretty much gone, too :-(
Your pal,

Mack said...

We are saddened by Ziggy's passing..

We were sorry to hear about Ziggy and have sent our condolences. He was a very special and beautiful boy, inside and out.

We are loving the football shots, ahhh, now we know why our unlikely JETS won yesterday! Thank you Khyra!

Sounds like Red is going to have a great life in his new forever home.

The Oceanside Animals said...

We went over and left a comment for Ziggy's family. Ziggy looked a lot like Trixie, I think.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

What an adorable puppers your mom transported this week!! I adored his coloring!!

We feel horrible for Ziggy's family...we'll stop by again to lend our support...

Um, Khyra...please DON'T stretch out my jeans...perhaps you shouldn't sit at all in them...and only wash in khold water with woolite inside out...and hang to dry...

Oh...and vacuum up all your FLOOOOOOF outta my bed...I might have allergies. Maybe.



Kasha said...

That is a handsome fella! Thanks for looking out for him. Always sad to hear of a loved pet go. Give Khyra a pat for me.

JacksDad said...

I love that he already has his new home and peoples waiting for him at the end of your trip!

It is very sad to hear that from Ziggy.

Khyra, you've won the game???

Nice woooh

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Oh my goodness! That Red sure is a handsome woofie!!!!!

Unknown said...

I still can't believe "nobody claimed him". :( Okay, so now somebody really wants him!!! See, that's thanks to a group of animal lovers who made sure of it. Thank you for taking care of Red. Every adoption makes me want to bark with joy! As for the snow, sorry Khyra, but I'll be happy to cross my paws for you. We're drowning in the rain over here.

Anonymous said...

I know. damn siberians. they make their way into our hearts and cling on. darn things. i hate it when they are extra polite and cute. it makes it so hard to not want a whole herd of them. someone knock some sense into me and fast.

tee heee. seriously? red would have been a failed transport if i were the driver. there is NOTHING better than siberian kisses.

Valerie Cummings said...

Red is so handsome!!! Did he find a good home??? Happy Monday Khyra! Hugs Joey and Kealani

Amy & the house of cats said...

We are very sad to hear about your friend Ziggy. Even though we didn't know him it is still sad to hear about anyone who has to go to the bridge. We are sending his family lots of purrs.

And boy, was Red a cutie - just a beautiful guy!

Khyra, you looked gorgeous in your pics as always - we still have some snow on the ground here - I wish I could figure out a way to send it to you!

Martha said...

We were very sad to learn about Ziggy.
We see your mom is working hard yet again with the transport.
We are surprised she didn't run off with Red - how handsome is he!
You are very cool with the football,
Martha & Bailey xxx

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Khyra,
We are very sorry to hear that Ziggy has made the journey to The Rainbow Bridge. We will leave our condolences on his blog and post to his brother's.
We think that taking a ride in the Xterra would be GReat cuz Happy Heart Cookies fly through the air in the Xterra; we have proof positive photographs form your blog. Jubal is really good at catching things, especially Happy Hearts, flying through the air. We just got a new sampler supply of Happy Hearts from Ms. Gerri courtesy of the AO4 gang cuz our Navy team beat up on their Army team in pigskin ball; good thing that you wasn't playing for the Army team.
Please tell your mom how much we appreciate her transport trips. It is GReat that she helps lost souls find a new furever home. We don't understand how Red could become lost or abandoned. We're happy that he went to a new furewver home.
Bravo-Zulu to youse guys for all ya do for us rescue pups.

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

So sad to hear about your friend passing.I will stop over there I also cant believe that no one is missing that beautiful boy, he is such a lovely woofie.. What great news that he has a new and loving home.. Brilliant.. Hugs GJ x

Jan said...

Teddy Westlife said...

I am glad he has found a great new home. Every pup should be so lucky.

Golden Samantha said...

Khyra - you look so good patrolling/watching the territory while contemplating that pigskin! Yum! Red is a beautiful boy - his furever family and he will love each other so furry, furry much!!! We visited Ziggy's blog - so sorry about the sadness there. We never met Ziggy, but what sweethearts both Zig and Pedro are - yes, Pedro will no doubt be missing Ziggy so very much.
With Big Hugs xo

Hi Khyra
It is always so sad to loose a friend, and I know Ziggy was a friend of many and will be missed.
Hearts will be empty for a long time.
We left some love for the family.

Khyra- all we can say is WOWEE!
Red is so handsome! We are happy he got a forever home.

I see you play foot ball in the grass now- no snow.
Keep paws crossed for snow.
