Me watching my kingdom
My Sibe stuffie watching ovFUR Merdie
(more about THAT tomorrow)
Now to turn it ovFUR to Mom so she khan tell you about her special transport that had her hit the road about 6:45am Sunday whilst it was a furry toasty -9C/16F degrees with LOTS of wind!
Time to meet my passengers
Cedric waiting his turn in Harrisburg
Lukina - she came from Lincolnton NC
Fagan - he also came from Lincolnton NC
This run was done for Husky Savers out of New York
It took the work of many many people to make this one happen since the route was longer than the normal runs from The South. It took one of the special drivers along the way to provide an emergency overnight (THANKS FRANKIE AND TED IN VA) since the original overnighter in the Winchester area had a family emergency which required she get to SC ASAP.
I did not get many shots enroute from Hagerstown to Harrisburg because Cedric and Fagan decided on Sunday that they did not like each other despite the fact they had travelled well together on Saturday.
I had Cedric tethered on the shotgun spot - and he slept quite well most of the time. Lukina (thank dog for girls) was fine loose in the back with her leash and gave me some calming kisses from time to time. Fagan was tethered but unfortunately had a bit too much leash so he could still get a bit too close for Cedric's (and my comfort).
It was unfortunate because I got to see many great pics of Fagan taking in all his gorgeous eyes could see! He hardly settled down because he was soooo excited to be so close to furever happiness and freedom. He was very very close to NOT being here (and I know you know what I mean by that).
Kim's ability to commit to these pups and the drivers committing to transporting these passengers has given them a new beginning for a new year! The 'shelters' they came from were the kill kind so without official ($$$) committing to pulling for transport, these poor dogs were on extremely limited time.
Here is the link to their Photobucket Slideshow AND here is the link to their Photobucket Album that includes FOUR videos. The last of the videos is where I babble a bit about dedicating the run to Charlie The Big Dog.
Unfortunately (as you will hear) it was VERY VERY WINDY (23mph gusting to 36mph) here this weekend. I tried to make sure to compensate for it but a bit of it did get blown away. In fact, after I got back on the road, I took the PA Turnpike for one exit to get back to I83 - that route involves crossing The Susquehanna River- BOY HOWDY WAS THAT A TREAT. I felt like I was reeling in some kind of PA Pike as I manuevered over the bridge!
Thanks again for all your support!
HERE IS A NOTE WE GOT FROM KIM AROUND 8:35 SUNDAY EVENING (the transport arrived to her part of the world around 7pm)
Good Evening Everyone!
Just got the kids in from playtime outside and they are tucked in for a good night sleep. They all did very well with the other dogs and they are absolutely adorable.
Cedric and Lukina are just puppies and so sweet and playful with everyone. Fagan is a bit shy, but after a week here, I'm sure he will shake out and become very confident. Right now he is outside with his own little harem ;) four females and he says life is VERY good.
Thank you all for taking the time to volunteer and drive these kids. They are all so wonderful it is heartbreaking to think any of them were facing death in a shelter.
Each will get excellent homes with fenced yards and playmates where they can learn what life for a companion should be like.
Again, I cannot thank you all enough. Without you, rescue would not be possible!

Khyra and Merdie will be back tomorrow!

P.S. We shared the picture of Hank on Sunday's post because his furever family had shared it with Sam! We try to make sure we 'pupdate' when we can! We have another to share later in the week!
