Monday MOMday

But furst a few words from Merdie and me
Merdie Sunday AM
Me Sunday AM
SO? I like sitting out here
And Merdie likes being khomfy here!
I'll wait fur the golfers (a few twosomes and foursomes did khome past befur the mist then rain arrived)
Merdie and I will turn the khorner bakhk ovFUR to Mom now so she khan share some of those MOMday things!

Thanks Merdie and Khyra! I appreciate you permitting me to take The Xterra to Hagerstown for two very special boysFinbarBanditFinbarFinbarBanditBanditBanditTwo pawesome fellas!FinbarBandit

I'm including two pics of a passenger that DIDN'T get to make the tripBrownieHer adoption up 'here' fell through so she didn't get to come up. I wanted you to see what a gorgeous piece of CHOCOLAB she is!

Finbar and Bandit were transported North for Husky Savers in the Rochester NY area. That was the organisation that provided the safe haven for Lukina, Cedric, and Fagan a few weeks ago.

Yesterday I mentioned the stories for these two Sibe Boys. Well, Finbar's previous unhumans fractured one of his skull bones at one point. It was the kind of break that required natural healing and the vet that treated him said he's fine. I can so attest for that! He was a joy to be around! He had a real zest for life and was always smiling. He napped most of his leg with me (as you'll see by his pictures) but Mary his first driver from yesterday said he was very very interested in watching everything they passed.

It was great he was such a sweetie because his travelling companion Bandit was an owner surrender who was quite unsure of what was happening. Everyone that had him on Day 1 all felt so badly for him. He looked so scared and it just broke their hearts to see him like that.

The Boys were lucky enough to get to do their overnight in the Roanoke VA - so they got to spend time at Casa De Dalmatian - their overnight hostess commented how sweet they both were and that Bandit seemed to be drawn to a ten year old in her house. It seemed to calm him and help begin to bring him around.

Anytime I read the descriptions of Bandit I was reminded of my most special passenger EVER: LASKA! He started his trek like a shell shocked soldier and by the time he got to PA, he seemed to find himself AND his pride again!

Bandit will too once he knows he's safe and can understand what is going on. He was a very gentle and kissy soul. He'll thrive when stability is reintroduced to his life.

Bandit had come with a crate but for my leg - and some of the previous legs - I let the two of them find their comfy spots in The Xterra. As you'll see by the Photobucket pics, that was pretty much stretched out next to each other.

I so wish these three pups the best of furever lives!

They deserve better and I was glad to be able to help.

Here is their Photobucket Slideshow AND here is their Photobucket Album that includes FIVE videos. You'll see by the name of the album and hear it in one of the videos that we did this leg for Ziggy Marley!

Thanks for keeping us safe on Sunday so I could help get these boys to their homes in New York too!

Here is a portion of an email the transport coordinator sent us late Sunday evening

I just talked with John and Kim. Finbar and Bandit have arrived with John safe and sound!! I know they slept a lot on the rides today, and I think they're a little wound up now, having gotten to their destination where some other gorgeous huskies are!

Many thanks to all of you for being part of this rescue effort. Two more beautiful huskies are going to find wonderful, forever loving homes through Kim's Husky Saver's rescue.

Thank you for the driving, the pictures, the videos, the time, gas, and above all, your love for the animals in need.


One last Monday MOMday thing to share. One of Khyra's KHAT friends Edda Puss and her mom will be blogging for Haiti this coming weekend. Please check out

Jen's Blog

for details - including why she is doing and what she plans to do during the event!

Once again, thanks for supporting our efforts. We can all make a difference if we try!

Life With Dogs said...

Please do get her back soon - I was thinking this was kind of a Momday/Merdieday combo, and I like it!

Two more thankful souls, not bad. :)

Amber and Nala said...

I think I would hang inside with Merdie but I am a princess ya know. ;) As for those passengers...what cuties! :)


JackDaddy said...

Well, that just goes to show you that reporters need to check their sources! :)

I've fixed it now.

Thank you! :)

Sierra Rose said...

Hi!!! Oh, we are so glad to see you and Merdie! And, fantastic transport. What sweeties. Hoping Brownie too, will find that great home soon.

Scout 'n Freyja said...

It pained me so to read about the poor baby who was hit on the head and the little frightened furry, too. What is it in a person's soul that makes them so ugly and mean to an innocent creature - especially one that only wants to give love and affection? God bless you and God bless all of your pups - the ones you live with and the ones that you transport.

Ms. ~K said...

If you hear any follow up info on Bandit, please share...He did look scared...
As always, thank you for what you do!

Wild Dingo said...

Oh my I saw Bandit's soul in his photos before I even read his story. sigh. sure hope they have a better furever home! they are so handsome.

and what's better than CHOCOLATE? hello? somebody better 'dopt that labradorable soon!

And Merdie has quite the toy collection under her paws!

Mango said...

What a wonderful weekend of rescue. Poor Bandit.


Ginger Jasper said...

Please do get her back soon as its not the same without her MOL. What a trsnsport this week, you must have so been in your element, butwhat a sad story. You were right in your description, the inhumans.. How anyone could do that is beyond me. They were so trusting even after what had happened. Thank you so much in your part of getting them to a loving happy home. I hope the chocolate lab gets another chance soon.. Beautiful.. Thank you.. Hugs GJ and Carol xx

The OP Pack said...

Merdie will be missed. We hope she can come for another sleepover soon.

Finbar and Bandit are two very handsome boys. We could tell from the pics and vids that Finbar loves to have fun. Bandit has such a love-filled face, we just know he will do well once he arrives in a good loving home.

Another round of applause for Khyra's Mom and her latest Xterra excursion. We are keeping our paws crossed that Brownie is able to find a furever home soon.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

I think I would like the inside best now, too. Your mom's transports were very handsome; thank you again for the difference your family makes. We visited Jen's blogathon and helped start things a little early...every little bit helps.

Benny and Lily said...

Samantha said...

I don't know... Mom just gets all weepy reading your posts about the Sunday drives - she has furry big feelings about these "lost" pups and I know where she's coming from. I'm just so grateful that these gorgeous ones will have furever homes where they will be able to grow into their full potential and get the LOVELOVELOVE they deserve. Khyra: your mom is one amazing and pawsome woman!
Hugs xo

MoMo said...

Such gorgeous dogs! Hope they find the loving home that they deserve.

Yay to all the humans who support their journey all the way.

Twinkietinydog said...

Merdie's future is secure. It's always a pleasure to see her, but I'm so not worried about her. Your post got Momma and me crying again. Loved that you used the term "inhuman" and you were too nice. As for goodness, has anybody had experience with Labs? They're the sweetest. I used to have a Chocolab sissy. I should stop here. Just shaking my lil' head sadly because of all the inhumans, and then, later, when I get over this, joyfully, for your humans.

BeadedTail said...

Merdie, we hope you get to come visit again soon! Khyra, we bet people take up golfing just so they can come see you!

The story of those precious boys broke our hearts. We hope all three of those deserving pups get a loving furever home soon.

Hank said...

Uh, yeah....them fellas are "pawsome" an' all....but tell 'em tuh take a number an' git in line!

(From mom: can you tell Hank is jealous, Khyra? :D)

Lorenza said...

I'd love to be inside with Merdie too!
Glad Finbar and Bandit are going to lovely homes and I am sure Brownie will find her forever home soon too!
Kisses and hugs

THE ZOO said...

were sorry brownies adoption fell thru. thats sad yoo and Merdie werent layin togevur.

Sam said...

You had some gorgeous passengers this week in the Khyramobile. And I hope the lab finds a home soon!

kissa-bull said...

mothers eyes are leaking again sweet baby bandit
your passengers are quite stunning

Tweedles -- that's me said...

sometimes things can be so sad we know it breaks your heart to witness the look in some of the eyes and know the details.
I know it must be so hard on you,.
You truly make a difference and so many doggies love you and we do too.

Holly and Khady said...

They are both so gorgeous! They definitely deserve wonderful, loving, furever homes! Once again, as always, your mom is pretty pawsome!

My mom gets to transport a Malamute next Saturday! She is VERY excited and promised me she would take pictures!


Suka said...

hey Khyra,

I think you look perfect just sitting out there by your tree! And Merdie looks perfect at her spot in the house! Come back soon, Merdie!

Yeah to your Angel mom for helping out to more beautiful pups! Their stories made me mad, and sad. Why are some humans so mean??! I will keep my paws crossed that those two beauties find only peace, happiness, and love in their lives from now on!

And my paws are crossed for beautiful Brownie that he finds his forever love home!


p.s. Khyra, no matter where I move you have an open invitation to come over and play with me and run free with me! We will have a blast, as dogs like us should!

Alasandra said...

Bandit captured us with his blue eyes, he and Finbar sure were handsome guys. We are purring Brownie finds a home. Going to check out Jen's Blog now. ~AFSS

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Another successful transport -- you really are the puppy dog express!

Cliff and Olivia said...

We're so glad those two beautiful woofies get a chance to find good homes.

Hope to see Merdie back again soon :-)

Ben said...

Thank you for driving those gorgeous pups to safety and being their port in the storm called - dumped and deserted.
PS - Momma love the word "unhumans" - she said I had to ask to borrow it.

Diefenbaker said...

That was really nice of your mommy! Give her some kissies for me.

By the way, do golfers taste good? You do eat them, right?


Dory and the Mama said...

Another wonderful Momday! Mama and I are very thankful for all your Mama does Khyra!


Mochi and Mommy said...

They are so adorable and I'm sure they will find great homes soon!

Sorry that Merdie had to go home, but I bet her family missed her!
