Monday With Three M's

Merdie (sent from her iPhone on Saturday)

Mom's Turn Now! Thanks Khyra!

What a weekend! Let's get right to it and get started with Saturday's passengersIvoryIvoryOur Lucky Travel CharmSilverIvorySilverIvorySilver, his floofy fluffy tail, and his pantyloons!

They were excellent passengers - Silver was so handsome and so sweet! I was kissed multiple times. I don't think he ever stopped smiling. Ivory was a bit overwhelmed by her day and was a bit stressed by the time she met her furever furamily Saturday evening. They already have a Great Pyrenees and knew THAT was consistent with the breed. Here is a portion of a note we got Sunday AM:

She was totally shut down by the time she arrived last night but had a good night's sleep and woke up this morning happy, waggin her tail, ate , went for a walk in the woods with her new family and is doing just fine !!!

Here is the Photobucket Album link to the photos and three videos; here is the link to just the slideshow. You will see the run was done FOR BEN BECAUSE BEN AND RESCUES ROCK!!!

Now for Sunday's passengersMisha The Puppy dumped by some pitiful excuse of a person in a hospital parking lot in AtlantaMisha and Elvira whose Petfinder link you saw here on SundayGretchen giving us some FROOT BATGretchen had also been dumped near a shelter but the unhumans couldn't even bring her the rest of the way - thank dog she wasn't hit by a vehicleYou'll see LOTS of this in the PhotobucketSee?Gretchen road shotgun - I did lots of tummy petting - and was repaid with little Chi-Weenie kissesMisha tunneling under ElviraElvira enjoying a cool beverage prior to heading to Allentown Misha looking beaWOOtiful and regalElvira thanking all of The Guardian Angels that helped her get 'here' from 'there'

Here is their Photobucket link for pictures and videos; here is the link for the slideshow. You will see this run says HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEBI - well, Debi and her husband provide a great overnight spot whenever transports pass thru their part of Virginia. She is associated with DALMATION RESCUE OF SW VA - unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of Dottie #2 that made the trip from their part of VA to Hagerstown BUT you will see her in the videos!

Here is a portion of a note we got from Debi Sunday evening about THIS Dottie:

I asked Mary (the new mom) if they liked Dottie, and she said, NO, WE LOVE HER ALREADY! Thanks to all of you for your help in Dottie’s transport, and for the other three sweeties, Gretchen, Elvira and Misha. Because of volunteers like you guys, these four girls are headed for wonderful new lives.

She even offered to take Misha since she was black and white like the Dals....

This same family adopted another Dottie a month or so ago - they wanted her to be able to spend time with the Dalmatian they had at the time who was getting close to making a trip across The Rainbow Bridge. That Dottie did get to meet and spend time with her prior to her crossing. Now THAT Dottie has a 'new' Dottie as a playmate!

Happy Birthday Debi! Thanks for providing a great B&B at Casa Dal!

Another transport was also meeting at McD's SO one of the videos is a BONUS video!

Once again, thanks to all the help support rescues whether it be by foster funds fuel or just kind words of support!

Hugz&Khysse from Khyra's Khorner

P.S. I don't know how many eggs are under there - The PFs have been pretty close to nest whenever I had the opportunity to look at the scrape - plus, our weather has been cool and damp - I'll keep checking and sharing any shots worth posting!

I am in love with Ivory. The next time you get one like her call me and I'll give you directions...and gas money!

Ms. ~K said...

All beauties, but what a special pup Gretchen is!!!
She is a sweet senior who deserved the first seat!
With each pup you transport, you collect another feather in your angel wings!
Hugs and belly rubs to Khyra and Ms. Merdie (when you see her),

Ginger Jasper said...

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Mr Koda MD said...

Very pretty and handsome passengers today Khyra!

Noah the Airedale said...

Those gorgeous dogs. I must say you have the perfect car for taking them to their forster homes and forever homes.

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Wow, such wonderful doggies and what great trips! Thanks so much for sharing it all with us...your Mom sure is swell for going all the way for these cute and adorable doggies! *grins*


Alasandra said...

All the pups are just lovely. Hugs to everyone who helped them find homes.


The Paw Relations said...

We cannot understand why people would dump animals in unsafe places. It's not as if the shelters judge you for handing in an animal you can no longer care for.

Snowie Baby said...

they are all so beautiful and i love to hear their stories.. all with happy endings thanks to yr mommy!


Xsara and Tani said...

Very pretty passengers, it's so nice of you to help them!

Sally said...

We love reading about your transports! We hope all those doggies get the loving home they deserve! We are jealous of Silver's pantaloons - fluffy!

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Mango said...

Great that Ivory got to go right to her furever home and that she will have another big white doggie to show her the ropes and help her feel safe.


Mr. Puggle® said...

M&Ms? Did someone say M4Ms? Have a good week Khyra. :)

The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

We always love reading about the transports and are so thankful that you do this wonderful act of kindness for these pets.

Love, love, love the picture of Silver in the mirror.

Anonymous said...

Your Mom is a sweetheart for helping all these doggies... I'm going to dedicate a walk to her today!

Stella said...

I was in love with Ivory too, until I saw the part about her being a Great Pyrenees . . .sorry, not enough room on the bed!

This is a beautiful bunch and always, always, such good stories, the part about 4-ever homes and such.

My last bulletin from the PA Govt said there were Three eggs in Mrs PF's nest. But PA is usually late with the news!

Good work, Mrs. Driver!


Dennis the Vizsla said...

Your mom does such good work, Khyra. We need more of her and fewer of the creeps who dump their dogs in parking lots and streets.

Dory and the Mama said...

What a wonderful day of love and transporting!

Thanks again for letting your Mama do this wonderful thing Khyra!!


The Furry Kids said...

Gretchen sure has some froot bats!
I'm missing our snow, Khyra. It rained all day yesterday. I hoped it would turn white, but it didn't. :(

Your pal,

Ina in Alaska said...

Sadly, the work of animal rescue is never ending. I am in love with Gretchen. I am partial to senior dogs, it is a happy day for Gretchen to find a secure home for her retirement years. If Gretchen's new family needs any supplies would you please have them email me I would be happy to provide a box of happiness for her. xoxo

Mack and Mia said...

Your momma is weally weally special you know that Khyra! You are a lucky gal and so are all the pups that she helps!

Wags and woofs,
Mack and Mia

The Thundering Herd said...

Miss Kiska is in love with Silver - they would be a match made in Siberian Heaven. And Miss Ivory was just a cutie.

But our hu-dad may have melted at that Misha face. Very glad he did not see it in person or The Herd would have been larger.

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

We must confess that were really taken with Misha. What a handsome boy!

We hope they all find wonderful forever homes.

Have a great week, Khyra!


Holly and Khady said...

You always have such adorable and amazing passengers! I just don't understand some humans! Wonderful, wonderful job you did!

Mom was really liking Silver! She loves the long fluffy fur!


BeadedTail said...

We always love seeing your passengers and fall in love with each one! Such precious faces and it's so special that you can help so many deserving dogs!

Of course we always love seeing you Khyra and Merdie too!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

There are not words to thank you and your mom for the wonderful thing you do to bring so many beautiful deserving dogs to loving forever homes! Your truly heroes!

I now you kow, but please remind all your followers: Don't forget to leave a comment on Ben's blog! It is worth $1 toward animal rescue: And any comments over 250 will be used in a donation in Khyra and her mom's honor...So please please please!

Danielle said...

From the pictures that showed up, Ivory and Misha are such good lookin and beautiful doggies! Your mom was PAWsome to do a transport for them. The where two deserving doggies.

Martha and Bailey said...

Loved all those doggies. Ivory was incredibly pretty. We still cannot believe any human could dump Misha.
The more we learn about humans the more we prefer dogs!
Well done mom once again.

Loved ALL the pictures today! Your mommy is an angel to those woofies! Our mom would end up keeping ALL OF THEM!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Great pics again and we just love Ivory!
Hey, Khyra, maybe your mom could adopt another couple of sibs for you? Ask your mom, k?

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh they are all so cute. We sure don't know how you can pass them off. Mom would probably have an entire herd if she attempted that.. he he
Thanks for sharing. You Monday post always makes mom's day.. Just seeing the smiles on all those puppies faces..

Big Sloppy Kisses

KB said...

You really are amazing. So many dogs and people owe you a huge thank you!

PS You watch those PFs like I watch Lilly and Hope in their den on Den Cam... AND, both of them are gone from the den right now. Huge event... I hope they come back.

Maggie and Mitch said...

What handsome passengers this week! They look so safe and happy sleeping while they make the trip to their forever homes.

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh they are all so adorable. Why do idiots do horrible things like dump animals. It makes me so mad (our baby Barney was left in a box at the front door of our vets - I am happy that they at least did that much). You really are so wonderful to help all of these doggies in need.

Clive said...

What gorgerous dogs this weekend! We hope they are very happy in their forever homes!

take care
Clive and the NSLM

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Misha does look like a little version of me!!


Sam said...

One thing that really amazes me is how all of these dogs get along with each other while they are transported. They must know they are being helped..

Silver is gorgeous! Khyra, you should have had Mom keep him as your boyfriend!

Mochi and Mommy said...

Soooo much cuteness!!! :)

OMD, can you believe we went over a week without our Internet? Well, it did work every now and then, but from Wednesday on...nothing! Mom was going crazy...even with her Droid she kept going back to the laptop to check it. :)


Twinkietinydog said...

Since Dottie and Dottie's mom doesn't like her, we'll take her in BOL What a great response! They don't like her, they love her. Misha is stunning. We do need an egg count soon. You've turned us into bird watchers...your fault BOL

Kari in WeHo said...

I just wanna give Ivory a big ole smooch on top of her head!

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Momma is such a good angel to help all of those wonderful dogs friend their fur-ever homes.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Silver is so handsome!

And we love that rear view mirror picture!

Monty says hi Khyra!


Whoa.. that is a floofy fluff on silver. Mangos head is probably spinning. Huh.. seems like you lulled the passengers to sleep. Once again another successful trip.

merdie is silly sending photos on her iphone

Twix said...

What great passengers you had this week! And a part doxie too! We don't usually see smaller dogs on your transports. All of the passengers are beautiful and will enrich someone's home. I loved the rear view mirror photo!

Amber and Nala said...

Oh Khyra...what great work your Mom does and you too for sharing her! :) Silver and Ivory were precious! And I LOVE your travel charm!


Ruby's Raiser said...

A weekend filled with doggies on their way to furever homes is a grrrreat weekend! As always, thank you for all that you do!

Keisha said...

I am so happy for your Mom and her friends who do the rescue drives. That is awesome. :)

kissa-bull said...

i cant say enough how thankful i am that you do this for these precioys pups
bless you

TwoSpecialWires said...

It just breaks our hearts to be reminded that some people can be so cold-hearted to dump loving dogs. So much that sometimes Moma just has to stop reading.

We are so grateful for what you do. We hope you know that.

Jake and Fergi, Sally and Nina xxxxoooo

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Oh my gosh
look at those faces. Those eyes!
Everyone of them.
What beautiful souls and all they want is love.
And they deserve so much more,
I heard these words Khyra about your mom and they are true.
She should run for Ambassador because she rocks!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Khyra,
That's another GReat transport for you and your mom. Boy is that Ivory a beautiful girl or what? We are all quite taken by her. They all look much better in the Extera than in their shelter mugshots. Dad says to tell your mom that if y'all never need an I-95 leg from Richmond northward to Baltimore keep him in mind.

LUCKY LUKE said...

I love em all! I love seein that bright look in their eyes, on a counta I remember what that felt like!

And Khyra... not only is your the Mom khind hearted and generous of her time and energy... but she also make me laugh wif the "froot bat"!

Some real lucky boys and girls gonna make some Forever Families real happy!

wif love from the Luke

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Those are such adorable dogs. It is just awful and heartbreaking thinking that someone could just leave them and not want them.

We are glad your mum helped them, we wish them all good luck and hope they all get fantastic forever homes.

Benny and Lily said...

Khyra careful those kids don't get to comfy in your car. BOL
