Thanking, Thinking, Thoughtful Thursday

I must start off with THIS pawesome piece of work put together by Asta's furry special and talented mommi Ami
It khaptures all of us that took part in The Max Tour!
I know being part of that will always be one of my most favourite blogging experiences!
I'm howling to go out!
Akhtually, Mom khaught me at the end of a yawn but it makes fur a better story this way!
Savouring the snow
And thinking The Snow Thief khan't take it if I'm there
I want to see him try!

We MIGHT be getting more but that remains to be 'seen' as I paw this post together! On Tuesday, the weather babblers started mentioning some storm they seem to have neglekhted to inkhlude in their forekhast - one of those 'just an inch or two either way is going to blah blah blah how much we get'

So, khome bakhk tomorrow fur MY report on how much we got!


Now to share my thanks fur this tasty and sweet award from
Keiko The Puggle and CoCo (and Tiffane too)!

Thank woo SNOWIE BABY fur this beaWOOtiful one!
We were pleasantly suprised to read a khomment on our blog saying we should visit Under One Roof's blog fur a thank you khard
We had seen a rekhwest on Amy and Her House of Snakhks blog to paw some words of support fur Itni's khrossing
Now fur some happy news
Here is Alonna in her new life
Mom had transported Alonna (along with her mom and siblings) last September - Mom rekhalls it was a fun transport - Cailyn The Mom was an awesome mom to her pups - very attentive and it showed in how well the pups travelled and interakhted
with each other and the drivers

This is Rexie
Rexie in the snow!
Rexie showing some tongue!
Rexie used to be khalled FUSION - and she was one of Victoria and The Ten Speeds pups as my mom nikhknamed them during the transport!

Mom says THAT was another fun one too! Two khrates filled with pup pup puppies and snoopervised by one furry special mom!

It is alway so khool and rewarding to get the email updates from the furever families touched by our furry hearts! THAT is why I let Mom take the Xterra on the weekends!

See woo here tomorrow!



PeeEssWoo: Mom and I want to thank woo fur stopping by Trixie's and Chef's blogs to paw some woo's and purr's of support!

It must make your heart so happy to see your former passengers living it up. Just as I can't help but giggle every time I see the tour pic. So many happy pooches...

Sam said...

Just a couple of inches predicted for you? They're saying a FOOT here!

It's so nice to see pics of the old transport dogs in their new homes! Rescue is so important, and people like your mom make such a huge impact!

Hi! I'm Sierra-Dog! said...

Awww that is so wonderful Khyra. Your peeps are very special to volunteer their time and talents like that. You must be so proud.
I wonder how much lovely snow you will get? Can you send me a snowball?

jan said...

You are so generous to share your Xterra and your mom. We love the see these happy pictures.

MAX said...

Hey there Khyra
It's THursday and I am just so thankful to have you as a bloggy-buddy! I love you very much!
(Today is Max's 19th day of grace)

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Thanks for the happy updates. It is wonderful to see the "after" photos of well adjusted dogs in loving forever homes. The Tour Picture is just awesome and shows the real essence of our community!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Mom says "Thanks Phyll, you are one of the few who got the Quinn reference!" That would be my choice for a name but we are going to see what Michael suggests.

Ms. ~K said...

Oooh, doesn't that just warm your heart?
We'll be looking for snow photos tomorrow!

Scout and Freyja said...

With all of the sadness of late on the blogs, seeing happy faces and reading great updates made our momma's rescue heart ☺smile☺. Thank you for our momma's smile 'cause she needs to do that more...

Martha and Bailey said...

Khyra, it is just lovely to see those happy faces your mom helped on their way to their forever homes.
We love the pic by Asta's mom. It really captures the day.
We hope the snow thief doesn't visit for a while.
Martha and Bailey xxx
ps we knew you would understand that Martha had to hide her biscuits!

Teddy Bear said...

I hope that more white stuff comes your way.:) What a nice update on Alonna and Rexie. It's great to see that they're so happy and loving life.:)

Rambo said...

I guess the snow thief is not going to work his magic then!
wonderful work your pawrents do for the pups. give them chi-wa kisses from the ram man.

Sally said...

You still got more snow than I do.
And I can't see the snow sniffers.
But as you look so komfy, I hope for you the snow will rest a little bit longer.
Nice woooh

Cyber-sibes said...

That tour pic is awesome! We enjoyed checking out Max's stops, especially with mutual furiends.
Woo STILL have a ton of snow there, MFT! We've just had 2 days of rain that polished off any remaining snow piles here.

~jack a-roo & moo too

ocmist said...

That is a very special picture, and I wish we had been a part of it! Our heart was there even if we didn't know about it.

It IS nice to hear what's going on with those that have passed through on their way to new forever homes, and we love getting updates on Gracie. The CCC

Huskee and Hershey said...

You still have that much snow??? Wow.. you are one lucky girl Khyra.. I am sure snow likes you as much as you like it!

Great news on the 'happily ever after' ending for the pups.. nothing beats that!

Suka said...

hey Khyra,

The Snow Gods sure love you! I can't believe they are giving you more of the white fluffy stuff while mine has slowly disappeared into almost nothingness. What are your bribing the Snow Gods with? Will you woof me your secret?

Congratulations on your pretty awards! Very sweet!

So thrilled to read of Aloona's and Rexie's happy lives! Thanks for the update!


p.s. Yes, the howling story is better than the yawn, but it is a cute photo whatever story you use!

Clive said...

Hi Khyra

Lovely to get the pup updates and hear about how well they are doing in their new forever homes!

Loved the 'howling' photo!

Ami's photo is fantastic - isn't it! We were so happy to be part of Max's World Tour!

take care
Clive and the NSLM

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

We have been hearing from special friends in PA about how much snow they are expecting. Keep us posted, Khyra!

We loved reading about the transport pups who are enjoying their new homes!


Noah the Airedale said...

Cool what an awesome photo of all those doggies. We recognise some of our maties in there.

Noah Willow Tess Lucy

The Thundering Herd said...

We got some more and it is totally fun. That snow thief is really having to work hard, because Ma Nature keeps adding more.

Mango said...

I can't believe you even still have snow. We just have mud.

Nice to see those happy pups enjoying their furever homes.


Ricky the Sheltie said...

I love that photo collage of all the pups who went on the tour! It is awesome!!!!

Keep enjoying your snow!

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

What an awesome tribute to those who have helped Max and his family through these hard times!

I love when we are updated on those you helped to safety!

The OP Pack said...

Wow, Khyra - we really thought you had found your woo in that pic!!!One of these days you are really going to surprise your Mom.

And more snow for you??? What about us? We are thinking more and more every day that we need to move East.

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Dory and the Mama said...

Snow maybies and happy forever home news! What a thankful week!


Frankie Furter said...

The weather blabbers here say that I'm going to get about 4 inches over the next days. If sooooo... it will BREAK the all time record for February it has stood since 1910.
I hope you get all that you want. You certainly deserve it for being such a Sweet Sibe.

Melissa and Emmitt said...

oh what a special post k & p!
you make the world a wonderful place to be!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Khyra,
Our dad doesn't allow any of us to say, even whisper, the "S" word. He says he can't wait until all of th "s" stuff has been melted by the "s#@*" thief. Dad says that all the "S" will mean that we will be up to our ankles in M-U-D throughout the spring, when, and if, it ever comes. Dad also requests that you at least try to temper whatever measures you have setup with the "s" Gods and be happy with what you've had to date. The golfers need to get back out in your backyard ASAP.
Don't forget to give your mom the requisite 13 sets of hugs and kisses from us down here in Bumpass, don't forget that 3 of those kisses need to be with sandpaper tongues. We thank her for all she does; BZ to her, and to you.

Keisha said...

BeadedTail said...

Hope you do get some more snow Khyra!

It's so wonderful to see those former passengers so happy and with furever homes! They brought a smile to our faces!

Twinkietinydog said...

I bet this is the best reward for angels like your momma, getting the updates, Khyra. As for you, I so want to thank you for holding my hand yesterday through my crisis. You even got me to giggle a few times. You're a terrific girlfuriend and I hope others read my comment so they know it too.

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

Sheesch...more snow...better you than us...they're being very vague about the amounts...

I AM SO MAD AT SCRUFFY...that stoopid poem was bad enuff, but ME as a LANDSHARK? MOI?

But it was a darling tutu, wasn't it...and that icing on Petey's tennis ball cake was DIVINE...

Keep the snow in your half of the state.



Dog Art Design said...

Beautiful dog! We've been getting so much snow, its crazy. My Bella (border collie) loves to play in it though. Me, not so much. lol.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Khyra I have heard that they are calling the weather out there a Blizzacane because of the snow and winds. So hopefully some of that snow makes it your way!

And house of snacks - that is priceless! I love it!

Sagira said...

Wow, that is a lot of pups that went on tour with Max.

Those pups are so cute!

Did the snow monster dump more snow for you yet? I heard it is in the clouds above your head.

I remember the 10speed pups very well.
