Monday With Three M's

Merdie, Mom, and Me!
Chilling Saturday Evening
Sunday AM prior to Mom leaving
Merdie helping Mom upload pikhs from the transport
Me helping Mom upload pikhs from the transport
Merdie helping AGAIN!
Now I'll let Mom tell about Sunday's passengers
Maya say HI all
Maya was checking out the lucky charm
Puppa was checking out the view
Heidi was checking out me
Puppa SOOOOO knew the drill - she got up once we got off the interstate - each transport I do I can't help but smile that the dogs all know the change from highway speed to something else means it is soon time to switch rides!
Heidi with a Puppa tail
Maya for Mango
Heidi Puppa Maya
Puppa Heidi and Maya with Peggy their driver to Allentown
Maya for Mango with Puppa
Puppa spots Puppa in the windows
Heidi spots Heidi in the windows

Maya saying TTFN with Heidi checking out the driver's seat
Puppa saying JFN

What a great transport this was to honour Buddy and Pearl! These girls got along so well! I've discovered that a Rotti weighing 85# can fit in the front seat of the Xterra - it was Maya's choice to ride shotgun - and the center console and/or driver's right forearm make for a great pillow! Puppa had a crate and prefered to be in it but shortly after we hit I81, Heidi claimed it as hers. She napped in it for the entire trip to Harrisburg. Puppa kept her eyes on it because I think she REALLY wanted to be in her crate but she was nice enough to let the wee one use it!

Here is the Photobucket link for the slideshow - AND here is the Photobucket link for the album with five videos!

I wasn't sure when I met their chauffeur in Hagerstown if all three had furever homes WELL, they do! How cool!

I had mentioned the leg would have another special significance with GA. Well, Sassy from Georgia had been the winner in Tucker's Sit Stay Competition - and she donated her winnings to cover the Xterra juice for a transport. I felt this one was quite an appropriate choice!

Thanks Sassy AND Tucker!

BTW, Sassy's mom is helping out at The Iditarod - Khyra and I are SO jealous!

Khyra and Merdie will be back tomorrow!

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

That looked like a great transport! Puppa is too cute a name! *grins* Glad to hear they all found furever homes!


Stella said...

What a great ride when you knew that homes were waiting for them all!

You all did good!


Huskee and Hershey said...

They look gorgeous... Maya reminded mom so much of the Rottie that our dad's family used to have. He was such a sweetie and we miss him a lot.

Thanks to your mom for using her precious weekends to help out those pups!

Teddy Bear said...

What a great transport. I'm so glad that all three pups have furever homes.:) We're pretty jealous about Sassy's Mom being at the Iditarod too.

from your new friend


Mango said...

You are right, that Maya is a looker. Nice to see a rottie girl that got to keep her beautiful tail. We love the rotties here but are really opposed to all that docking nonsense.


The OP Pack said...

Mango will be very appreciative of all those special Mango-shots. And the cuteness meter went way high with Heidi and Puppa. All of us love our crates, even Ciara - but best if the door is left open:)

Glad to see another successful and happye-ending transport.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Cory said...

We just love hearing about your transports and how they are getting rides to their forever homes. I bet they know that too!

Big purrs to you!

Pee Ess...Grete got a nice walkie along the river front yesterday, but silly mom forgot her camera. Grete said she is doing well and hopes to be chasing her ball soon.

Frankie Furter said...

Grrrrrrreat. Forever homes for them all!!!
Ummmm, Khyra??? Are you trying to get Mango fixed up with a girrrrlfurend????

Mack said...

We just love Maya's long tail!
Would you give Nanny a big old "glad to see ya again" kiss??

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

The Meezers and Billy said...

Great transport - and they are beautiful ladies!!

Fank you MsKhyra'sMom for all that you do for the woofies!

The Thundering Herd said...

Khyra, looks like you help the same way we do - by going outside. Our hu-dad is forever saying that we could be the most help by going outside for a while. Guess we are really great helpers if we can make that much difference from so far away, but it seems to work.

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

They say efurryone has a twin and the transportees founded theirs in the winder reflekshuns!

Rambo said...

Those doggies are lucky, and it's a wonderful thing your Mom did for them. She deserves extra kisses, once again!

Amrita said...

love your beautiful shiney coats

Tank said...

More lucky doggies going to new homes thanks to your nice mom.

Sorry the Wizard wasn't more helpful Khyra. Maybe you're right... the wizard could have been a total fraud like Ali Z (no offense Ali Z) or some other critter. OMD. It could have been a squirrel. OMD. I need to lie down.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Khyra, you look so sad watching your snow retreat!

Amber and Nala said...

Hi Khyra, please thank your Mom for visiting my Mom's photography blog. ;) She says she too thinks purple potatoes would be a hit at your place. Maybe you could even help eat them. :)


JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

What great passenger's this week. Your mom is so wonderful. And your snow, it is melting!
Khyra, we are so sorry we can not keep up with your says her job is killing her.
Why can't my mom just blog full time?

MAX said...

Hi there Khyra and Merdie

Joe Stains said...

Look at all of those cuties!! Mom really likes that Maya, she has a thing for block heads.

YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

Another nice transport!
Everytime when mom sees a Rottie, it makes her think of the one the she should have "stolen" when she was in college and she has been regreting not doing it.
Her neighbors(2 doors down)at the townhouse she lived in used to own a rottie pup. The townhouses have a big yard that all the tenants shared. Mom noticed that the rottie was always tied up outside and it was summer time(in Louisiana) and the pup almost always have NO water. Mom had filled up the pup's bowl many times. Clearly the owners didn't care. Then one day mom found the rottie wandering down the street so mom picked her up. The pup's owners weren't home at the time so mom kept trying to decide if she should return her to the owners. She knew it's impossible to keep the pup and still live in the same place(because they will know that mom kept her). So mom returned the pup. Then the next day those people were gone, they moved! There was no sign that they were moving. Had mom knew that they were moving, she would have kept the pup and lie that she didn't see her, to save her from those people. Sigh....

Hurray for the three M's! Merdie and you were very helpful with uploading those pics. Cute doggies -- so glad to hear they all have homes. We laughed because we have sheets JUST like the ones your Mom was using in the car! They came from my grandmother's and we still use them!

What a beautiful bunch of dogs - you guys are the best. And where would you be without Merdie's help?

Kasha said...

I don't think I can tell you enough how cool you are for transporting those sweet dogs. You are not nearly as much as a hermit as me. Merdie is a cutie and Khrya is always so photogenic. Sure love you guys!

Ben said...

Most excellent transport - what great news that they all had homes to go to. That just makes it all that much better.

Busy Buttons said...

Yeah for another successful transport! All doggies deserve wonderful forever homes in my opinion. (I can say that 'cause I just got mine a few months ago!)

peggy and The Cats said...

Good news is so good :) Your Mom has a very big heart to help all the doggies get where they are wanted. Good thing she's just 18 and has all that energy!!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

What a memorable trip and I know it must have been such a feeling having hope for all the beautiful pups to find forever homes.They were all so beautiful. Their eyes looked like they were trying to say "thank you"

MoMo said...

Hi to all the doggies and especially the M's. Hi Merdie! You are a cutie. You are too, Khyra, that goes without saying.
