Monday MerdieMe&MomDay

Look who snagged her dad's iPhone and sent some pikhs
Merdie grinning and bearing it!
Merdie's younger bean is way way way BIG into wrestling!
Looks like all the moves wore Merdie out!
When she sent these, I pawed bakhk she'd be on the blog fur all her fans have been asking about her!
This is a view of me Mom sees khwite often - she looks out through the LACIE khurtain and sees me - on my snow - in my Siberian nirvana!

Time to let Mom tell woo about Sunday's pawesome passengers!

Thanks Khyra - yes they were very special pups!Gunther and Helga Sorcha showing some love to one of the friendly McD's staff - he came out to empty the trash and came over to see all of them - his earrings were pawprints and his tatoos included paws as well - me thinks he was a dog lover!This is Dottie - she road up from VA and met her drivers before heading west towards Breezewood then onto another part of PA - she's got some special family waiting for her - she actually came from the rescue that is kind enough to house the overnights for transports that end Day 1 in the Roanoke VA area :

Dottie's new family has an older dalmatian that only has a few more weeks left. They would like for the two dogs to spend time together
(we wish them well!)Sorcha and Mugs with their McD's pal!Our good luck charm!Sorcha resting up to meet her new mom

Sorcha escaped death twice--once at the kill shelter, and next when she was pulled, found to be HW+ and mislabeled as being aggressive. Irina came forward to save this girl when no one else would. Her aggression was a joke (sort of like Cheyenne.). She's a love and has found her forever home with a (lady) lieutenant in the Philly PD! Lucky gal!

Lisa passed along this when she handed Sorcha to her furever family:

Sorcha's new people are very nice, and I swear (don't know how), Sorcha knew that Sue was her new Mom, great first meeting, something we all love to see

Mugs resting up to meet his special parents:

Mugs came from Beaufort Co. AC (South Carolina). He was available only to rescue because he had a lot of bald spots and they didn't know what it was. Turned out to be nothing and he is a happy and healthy puppy. Mugs loves to play and to be held. He sleeps great in bed but he is not housebroken yet (but he does sleep through the night). Mugs' doggie siblings whilst in foster include Aurora, a 15 pound pug mix, Bosco, a 160 pound rottweiler and 7 dogs in between. He does great with all of them. Mugs found his forever home in South Jersey--his new daddy is surprising his new mommy...with him! Judy who drove the leg where he got to meet his parents reported on FB his new mom was so happy she cried!!!

The Snow Pups!
With puppies comes a big risk of illness, particularly parvo. Many rescuers won't go near puppies because of this. But, that doesn't stop Irina from rescuing these babies. Irina rescued a litter of 7 shepherd mix puppies recently. This litter was infected with parvo. She has lost 2 little girls already, but thankfully the other 5 should pull through with extensive medical care. The savings that we had established through fundraising and adoptions over the last year has been diminished on these babies.

All four of my passengers were able to come North thanks to the kindness of Irina and Her Rescue in GA
She was Mugs foster mom and shed many many tears when he left her on Saturday morning - I sent her a few pics from the road - she wrote back that's her boy AND bring him back!
Mugs watching Sorcha being One With The White - as Khyra would paw!
Sorcha immersed in HER snow!
Guarding it like some other pup I know!
The Lucky Pups prior to heading to their next stop!

As usual, I took lots of pics and videos - the pics are in this Photobucket Album Slideshow - AND the videos can be found here

As I mentioned yesterday, this run was in honour of Shari...and sadly, I rose Sunday morning to see Khyra and I had lost another friend in Poppy the Georgia 'Dale. It was such a shock to see the post for just last Sunday I mentioned Poppy's dad crossing The Human Rainbow Bridge. We are beyond words for Lana, Penny, and Patches.

Khyra and I would also like to thank Mochi and Her Mommy (Sherri) for surprising us with some green papers for a transport! Since this special run included an awesome Siberian, we chose this one for you!

Thanks to all that support rescues everywhere and anywhere they can!

Khyra will be back tomorrow!

Hugz&Khysses from Khyra's Khorner

P.S. I've had several comments left on the blog about the circumstance surrounding Shari's death being under investigation. I appreciate the information and I'll continue to look for updates when/should they become available. Regardless of the findings, it doesn't diminish the pain nor lessen the tribute many of us chose to pay her.


Life With Dogs said...

Merdie would have been a great contestant at pile on, no? :)

Great to see more dogs headed for forever homes!

Mr Koda MD said...

Puppies puppies puppies!!!!!! Excellent pics today of all the new doggies!

Merdies definately up to daye with technology! All those poor fighty men look like they've been defeated!

Yay Merdie!


Summit the Super Mal said...

Woo there PG~
So veri glad woo loaned yer Mom out fur those special pups again. I know the rewards are immense. Looks like Merdie could have used a tag team partner. We've got paws crossed that the "crossing" stop for a bit. There have just been too mani, too fast.
Your BG,

Sierra Rose said...

Hi there friends. Great post. Loved seeing Merdie with the little toy wrestling fellas! You are quite patient, Merdie!!!
And, wow! What a transport and lots to say. We are so glad that these special friends are finding new and great homes. And, have you to help assist in this process.
Wonderful! Blessings.

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

kissa-bull said...

this makes getting ready to work on a mondday less painful
just knowing that all these sweethearts are being rescued and loved makes mondays less sucky for sure
thanks so much

dewdana said...

Merdie was attacked! Oh no!
Awesome pups! You are an angel for your transport missions.
I read up about Shari and found a video about her rescue. It is a tragedy for everyone involved. The world needs more people like her not less. Such a senseless tragedy.
In case any others don't know about her work here is the video I found:

jan said...

We love the dogs who get happy forever homes thanks to you. They all seem so deserving.

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Poor Merdie, covered in wrestlers! But she's gotta be their queen, we're sure of it!

TwoSpecialWires said...

We've been falling behind on our comments, but want you to know we try hard to keep up with our reading. It makes our hearts glow to read the rescue and transport stories. You guys are the best. In so many ways.

Jake and Fergi xxoo

ocmist said...

Wow! Merdie is a busy dog to take care of the one with all those toys and to lay there so sweetly!

Thanks for sharing all these lovely pups. My sister is mainly rescuing pups. She and her friend took over 50 pups (after giving them Parvo shots) to several different rescues on the coast this past week. They've transported over 1,000 dogs in the past couple of years.

She said that the main treatment for Parvo is to keep the pup/dog hydrated. The vets just put bubbles of Pediasure under their skin by injection when they've gone there, and she and her friend have saved several by just continually giving spoonfuls of Pediasure every few mins. to half hour or so for several days in a row.

Stella said...

I just love the second picture of Merdie, smiling, with all her wrestlers around her. I bet she is happiest when her boys are right beside her.

Uhh, lets see, out of this batch, we'll take Helga. The name will be good, like Stella and Helga. Cute!


Keisha said...

I am so happy for all the rescues. Love and kisses to the animoos and their hoomans. :)

Ms. ~K said...

I look forward to these happy tales/tails!
Always good to see sweet Merdie!

Teddy Bear said...

What a great update n Merdie. She has a lot of wrestling toys to play with...I can see why she is so tired. Wow, what a great looking group of pups. Your Mom must've had so much fun on her transport today. The pups look like they all enjoyed the snow. If only there was a way to turn all this rain into snow....

Teddy Bear

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh Merdie is so patient to let the human bean pile those figurines on her... I'd have walked away and Hershey would have chewed them up! Heehee...

Wonderful to see how those pups are going to good homes, not without the help of your mom!!

Bae Bae said...

Awww.. smiley Merdi sure is cute. ;)

~ Bae

Tanuki Maxx said...

Beautiful pup pics, Scorcha sure is pretty...! Of course you and Merdie are looking as khute as always!
Happy Monday!


The Thundering Herd said...

Glad to see ya Merdie! Love seeing your smiling face.

Looks like a great transport and a certain Sibe LOVED finding some snow during the trip! (while the Khyra Sibe protected her snow from the snow thief).

Suka said...

hey Khyra,

Merdie is looking especially beautiful, and those toys around her look awfully fun to chew on! She is quite the trooper for allowing those toys all over her!

What gorgeous dogs on your mom's dog run today! And such happy news that they are all going to great homes!

Tragic news about Poppy. So so sad. It can be too much sometimes. Thanks for letting us know.


Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

WE love all the photos, but especially those of Merdie!

Alasandra said...

Hi Merdie, good to see you. Khyra we love the picture of you through the lace curtains, it is a very romantic shot.

Purrs for all the doggies your Mom transported. We hope they all have pawsome forever homes. ~AFSS

Mango said...

LACIE CURTAINS? I would not have any of THOSE here. Merdie is most patient with the foolishness going on at your place.


The OP Pack said...

So good to see Merdie Girl - bet she can pin those characters any time.

And what a full transport of cuties!!! Those puppies were adorable - and Sorcha and Mugs won our hearts too.

Mochi and Mom were so kind to send those green papers - some pups will be very grateful.

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

It always makes us smile to see Merdie and those pawsome transports. And of course our dear Khyra in HER snow - our snow is leaving fast and it's raining on it this morning!! YUCK!!

Thank you Khyra for letting your Mom use the "X" to do the transports - it must be getting a lot of miles on it by now.

Thor said...

Merdie was so brave facing all those little fighting men!

Lovely photos and great stories of the passengers.

Nice to see Merdie again too :-)

Frankie Furter said...

Yet another successful transport! Congrats.
Merdie looks grrreat. Thanks for letting us see her.
Love the LACIE shot!! EVEN with all the snow... it's HOT! I'm just sayin'.

Remington said...

GREAT pics! I am smiling!

Gus said...

Please tell Merdie and your MOM thank whoo for the special pictures. We have lots of pictures of doggies with people toys in our house. Except our photos are girl toys. Not much difference in the end.


Rachel said...

I loved Merdie's "Wrestlemania" photo... too funny.

Anonymous said...

I like Dottie and I'm glad she has a new home. Do you know if those polka dots are natural? I'm gonna ask my groomer if she can make me look like that.

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh my goodness we were worried when we saw those pics of Merdie.
We thought she had been captured by the little people!
You know like in Gulliver's travels!
Thank dogness she is OK!
Nice to see those lovely dogs heading off to find homes.
Great work by everyone including your mom.

Benny & Lily

Angus Mhor said...

Ah, Khyra! There are few things more glorious to the eye than a Sibe snootering snow! Except perhaps a Sibe sitting in snow!

I keess your Furry Beautiful Sibe face, Khyra-belle. And one for your mum, as a wee thanks for transporting those woofsters to Finally Forever homes!

Mr. Hendrix said...

Hi Merdie! Good to see you again. I think all that wrestling would wear me out too. I hope you took a nice nap with your little bean boy after that!
Khyra! I am sooooooo glad you got your snow. We wound up with 20 inches in our yard. It was crazy. My woofie cousin loved digging his snout in it and romping around. Then, of course, came a warm nap covered in an afghan.
Love the rescue woofie pics! They make us happy.

BeadedTail said...

MERDIE!!!! Good to see you! We've missed you! Hope you get to go visit Khyra soon!

The pups on the transport were so, so cute! Sorcha looks like a big sweetie!

Huffle Mawson said...

Perhaps Merdie should have entered Competitive Napping!

Another wonderful transport, Khyra's mum. You do such great work.

Junior and Orion said...

Merdie is very patient to have all those wrestlers piled on her.

And we see you are still enjoying your snow Khyra! We hope ti sticks around for a long time for you!

What a lovely bunch of woofies to transport! We are so happy so many of them have good homes now~!

bbes tribe said...

We thinks Merdie is a real member of your family. Loved the pics of the pups going to their homes. Mom got so excited on her first transport, she forgot to take pics. Maybe next time.

Great to see Merdie at family play...she is VERY patient! Mom's transports were a happy looking group. You are responsible for changing so many lives for the is an honor to see the good luck charm riding along.

Doctor Dre said...

Hi Khyra

Dre likes merdie's manly action figures lots.


McGillicutty said...


Hi girlie! Looks like you had a full weekend!

I tell you, I appreciate your mommy so much for wanting to help us out. I am so glad to have my fur mommy here (I think). We are interacting well, and and mommy thinks we will be fine.

Now, I need to get to all these blogs we've been missing over the excitement of the weekend. Thanks for keeping up with us.

Irish Love, McG

Chester said...

I am always amazed at your posts (I know, I don't get here as often as I should) but either way, so much info and such wonderful pictures and video too.

Merdie is a dear Golden (aren't they all?) and she simply glows with happiness.

You and all involved with rescue must truly be God's gift to the dog world for without your tireless efforts, many would not be living with loving families and giving unconditional love to them.

Chester and I both give you high fives for your work!
Chester's Mom and Chester ;0=)

1000 Goldens said...

Merdie, you look so cute with those toys! Love that the new Momma cried when she met her new family member and Helga is adorable :)

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Meride my friend- is that YOU!
It is so good to see you!

Thank you for the update on the transports Khyra.
We know how heartbreaking it can be sometimes to not be able to save everyone. I know it is hard on the humans who do this unselfish task.
But we get so happy when we see the ones who are going to forever homes.

Toby- The dog with a blog said...

Nice Merdie, real nice!

Puppies are so cute!!

LizzyBean said...

Gosh, I don't know where to start on this one! Great stories and pics of the rescued doggies....It just warms my heart to read about dedicated and kind people who help these animals. Merdie is always such a sweet girl! See you soon, Khyra!

Twinkietinydog said...

You know we are grateful and active supporters already, so, let me just say that M chuckled real loud when you mentioned Irina asking for Mugs back. See, M had to resort to mostly financing rescues, mostly, I said. (She almost fostered a sick pup this past weekend, but luckily she found a home first.) Anyway, my M is a bit of a push over and she couldn't let go which is why we're such a large family.
Our gratitude to all you angels.
Twinkie and family

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Sorcha is sure a beauty. Merdie is quite sophisticated with an iPhone!


Cory said...

I just loved catching up. All the highs and lows...puppies and woofies finding their forever happiness and other furriends crossing the Rainbow Bridge. Bittersweet.

Purrs to all of you who are helping these amazing woofies and wooflets.

Lorenza said...

Merdie looks so happy there surrounded for all those wrestling toys!
Those doggies are adorable!

Wild Dingo said...

nice to see Merdie!

sorcha is GORGEOOUS! i see she likes the snow as much as WOO doo!

isn't it a PIA the way they diagnose "aggression?" doy. i've heard they stick a fake arm near their food to see if they bite it... with some doggies trained in protection, it looks like a TOY! so of course they'd bite it!

stupid stupid stupid people. glad sorcha has new home! sigh. another big good deed woo doo!

Clive said...


We loved that post so much - you can guess why of course!!

Sorcha was thrilled to see her namesake! Such a lovely dog too!

We have printed out some photos to Sorcha here can show her pals in school tomorrow!

take care
Clive and the NSLM

Ben said...

Awesome transport - what a gorgeous collection of pups lookin' for love. Momma says all the transport drivers will meet up on the other side of the rainbow bridge. Cause only the bestest animal people get to join the animals in furever - I am sure you will have a path paved in gold.

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Khyra,
Your mom just keeps out doing herself. What a GReat transport, but then they're all pretty special and amazing. How fortunate you are to have such a caring mom. We were very happy to see our most favorite Pennsylvania Golden retriever again. We all love Merdie, just like you are our most favorite Pennsylvania Siberian.
Dad says to remind you to lay off praying to the "s" word Gods unless you can get them to limit it to north of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Sagira said...

I love Merdie!

Look at all those cute puppers!

Two Schnauzers from New England said...

We love what you and your Mom do for all the dogs that need forever homes. Mama has fallen behind again. She is taking another class and cannot wait to finish it. Have a good weekend!

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
