Monday MOMandMeDay

How I spent my Saturday night
Sunday I sat in my 'path'
Enjoying the khoolness on my pantyloons
Giving Mom another of my 'looks'
******
Here are some pikhs from MY furst transport
Sampson The Bassador
His angel Sherrie who drove him from the Abingdon VA area on Thursday
He got to say HI in a furry special way!
Look at that face
Look at THAT Basset paw!
And THAT FACE!
He was such a good kho-pilot!
Our other passenger Puddin' The English Setter
More Puddin'
Here is the link to the Photobukhet fur Sampson and Puddin' - it shows me ready to ride along! Since the transport happened in the evening, the pikhs aren't that good - it was dark - and each of them had reflekhtive khollars/leashes/khlothing that messed with Mom's flashie beastie - not to mention three invigorated khanines due to the khool temperature!
Sampson's furever furamily met him on Friday and were instantly smitten - as were all he had met along his journey of being hit and left along I40 in TN to happiness up 'here' - Sherrie indikhated she almost pupnapped him fur he was such a sweetie as they made the trip together

Sherrie had been fostering Puddin' - she was to have khome North to another reskhue on another weekend but that transport had gotten postponed bekhause of weather. Sherrie gave Mom the number fur someone that would meet her in Hamburg to get Puddin' - that woman lived in 'Washington's Crossing' PA - and as Mom talked with her, it turned out Terry had grown up in an area of Upper Darby that my mom knew furry furry well since her khousins lived in that area and that 'parish' area - it was another one of those small world things and gave them a chance to exchange memories from 30+ years ago!

AND then it turned out that Terry had a MALE me! She said he was larger than me but not nearly as fluffy! He had the shorter Sibe khoat!


It was fun riding along with Mom - I won't get to do it often but now I know where she goes and what she does when she leaves me fur those periods of time! I had fun playing with them too! Sampson even ventured into the bakhk of the Xterra along the way. Mom said all she khould see in her rearview mirror was his happy tail wagging away!
******

Khyra's Mom here with a few updates of other passengers from Khyra's Xterra
The handsome fella on the right is Nanuk - he used to be Finbar

Here is the update I received from Mary in the Charlotte NC area - she was the coordinator for this transport - which had also included Bandit who seemed shell shocked at the start but gradually realised it was going to be alright - he especially came alive when he encountered a 10 year old during his overnight in VA

I wanted to pass this email and picture along from Kim at Husky Savers. It is a great picture of Finbar (now known as Nanuk), with his new daddy and his new sibe siblings (also adopted from Husky Savers) and little doggie sibling. He looks so happy. Such a lovely home for formerly abused Finbar.

Other good news from Kim is that Bandit also has a new home and his new family was to pick him up tonight; they have 3 other sibes in the family, plus children...it's a great home for Bandit!


I was thrilled to see this because those two handsome boys made for quite a special transport after experiencing all they had prior to making the trip

This gorgeous gal used to be the puppy known as SOPHIE

She's now known at Tala
Isn't she just beautiful? Hard to believe it was last June she made her way North with Jackson

Khyra will be back tomorrow!

Once again, thanks for your support and kind words!

They mean so much!

Although I'm so NOT someone who enjoys their picture being taken, I think we need to all honour Max and His Special Mom's suggestion and advice!

I will see if Khyra and I can't coordinate something for a special 'Mom and Me Day' post!

Great to finally see Sampson after our e-mail exchange. And of course, it's about time you got buried again! What a winter this is turning out to be. Sibe heaven, Greyhound hell. :)

Teddy Bear said...

Khyra, I still love the photos of your in your recliner.:) How exciting that you were able to go on the transport with your Mom.:) You must've loved it! Look at all that snow...sigh. You are so lucky! Look at all those beautiful pups.:) Your Mom is wonderful for all that she does.

Love,
Teddy Bear

Stella said...

Are you sure that is all your snow, your yard? Perhaps your Mom just got a heavy foot and brought you all to Minniesnowda, did she do that?

We are having another WHOLE DAY of it tomorrow! We be buried!

Your transport pups were a beautiful bunch and Sampson made me think of my old pal Dannan!

Kisses and good work, peoples!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Nanuk is one very handsome pup! It's always so ood to hear about the 'happy endings' for those pups that your mom helps to transport... it really is a wonderful thing that she's doing.


Oh and keep your pantyloons warm Khyra! It looks mighty cold there..

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

That chair is perfect size for you!!

Furkidsmom said...

It's always great to see the pups that your Mom transports - and you got to go too!!

When we lived in New Jersey we were right across the river from Washington Crossing PA.

The Thundering Herd said...

You are looking so happy in all of that snow. Glad you have a path carved for comfort.

Love the updates on the transports as well. So cool seeing other furries finding forever homes. You know we are a big fan of that.

Batu said...

What perfect Monday shots - love the lounge one...

The OP Pack said...

How wonderful to see all the good news about so many of your Mom's transport pups! Happy endings are the best.

We so need to find a way to get to Pawsylvania - our 6" of snow looks like it is going to be a measly 3" tops. All we have now is a light mix and slippery roads.

Not so sure we can get the Momster to have her picture taken with us, but we sure will try. Maybe we can bribe her with some cookies.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

The Paw Relations said...

It's wonderful to ctach up with all those lucky and very happy doggies

Frankie Furter said...

That is grrrreat. You got to go along. I think you should get to go every time. You would make the "travelers" feel at ease. I'm glad that you are loving YOUR snow. I have MORE coming tonight. I guess you haven't gotten your direction thingy fixed yet. Sigh IT IS -3 right now. Brrrrrrr Where is that Global Warming????

McGillicutty said...

Thanks for the khongrats, Khyra! Yeah, I, too, hate the the N** let V**** back in. I don't watch it very often for dat reason. BUT the Saints in the Super Bowl? We HAD to watch! It would be sacreligious or somethin' in the south! Glad to see you and your mom help with rescues and placements. We do too! Know anyone that wants 2 pugs? We just got an email that we need to find homes for these babies. Their human just had a baby...doesn't that make you mad? It happens all the time though. Any way, I'll prbably post pics on my blog later.

Irish love, McG

Ginger Jasper said...

WE buy fresh beets every week. We have been putting the beets tops in the critter food. WE cook critter food every week too. Last week I tasted them. Not bad. So this week they went in the stir fry Saturday night. The beet tops were a wonderful addition.
Thank you MOm for all you do for the sweet deserving dogs!!! Big kiss for Khyra, Bambi & Fern

Sam said...

It was nice to see the pictures of you accompanying Mom and the Bassador this week! Very cool, and awesome work as always.

JackDaddy said...

Yeah for all the wonderful transports! And yeah for all the wonderful pictures!

And a special YEAH for all that you do!!!

Twinkietinydog said...

Khyra's first transport!!! Yay. Way to go girl. I'm so excited for you.
How appropriate to call Sherrie, angel Sherrie. I think all transporters should add this before their first name.
As for the mommy and me photo for Max...must talk to the parental. She hates photos and doesn't even have any with her human children. What's up with that?
Twink!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Aw...they all look so sweet! I still can't get over what a wonderful and generous thing your human does helping to transport all those pups!

And hey - that's cool that you got to go along for the ride, Khyra...your version of Mango's 'ROTE'!! :-)

Yes, great idea of MaxDog's - we're going to do our next post on that too!

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

Huffle Mawson said...

Hooray for those pups and their new homes! That's wonderful news. I sure you were an excellent passenger for the transports Khyra.

Oh my gosh, does Tala have a blog? Looks SO much like our Sagira!

Fenway said...

For heavens sake!!! 10-20 more inches of snowfall is predicted to start tomorrow.

I think we should go see Beckett down south for some of those Shrove Tuesday pancakes!

Your pal,
Fenway

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Khyra,

Joe Stains said...

Lots of khool khoincidences during the transport, I am glad you go to go along and meet some new friends. We will go check out the Max blog.

BeadedTail said...

Look at all that snow! Looks like a lot of fun Khyra!

The transports were so sweet and it's nice you got to go and meet them and see what your mom does. Thanks for the updates too. We just love good news!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

The perfect combination... LOTS of snow to play in, walk through, wiggle on, enjoy...AND then a comfy lounger in the warm house to relax! The transport was a wonderful mission as usual but it was even neater because you were there to be the "greeter!" I hope you get to ride along again.

Thor said...

Hi Khyra! Your mom is doing a wonderful work to all those puppies! Good work helping her.
It's great to hear those happy endings! =)

Thor

Cory said...

Khyra, we love to see you in the snow!

We also love to hear how all of your passengers are doing. All the work your mom does on behalf of woofies makes us kitties purr and it makes Grete wag her tail!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Sampson is very handsome!

Your looks that you give your mom are very intense! You look so comfy in the snow! We like your chair!

Benny & Lily

Rudy said...

Hi Khyra!

Wasn't that agility video something -- Mom says if I do something like that white dog did I'm not coming home! She's so mean, that looked like fun...
Your Mom's the best for giving all those doggies rides to their new homes!
Mom doesn't quite believe all the snow we're getting and going to get --she just finished making us a nice racetrack in the back yard (in 2 feet of it!) and now we get another foot? She just wants to hide....
I think it's going to be an exciting couple of days...

Rudy

Hi, Khyra -

We really like all of the photos of all the pups. Mama has a friend who lived in Darby, PA a looooooooong time ago.

Mama really liked the leashes, collars and vests. She thought it was so pawtastic that you were able to go with your Mom on this trip.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
