Monday With Lots of M's

Some pretty blossoms to start your Monday
Whilst Mom was dumping out the pikhs from the transport
I was sitting by my Pussywillow and watching Sammy
Then I gave Mom another side of me
Sorry these are a bit fuzzy but Mom shot these throught the powder room window
Momma Robin on her nest in the flowering cherry tree

The residents of Jan's Funny Farm have a special posting khontest going - to celebrate the importance of pets in the lives of humans - in pawtikhular, little humans
Bakhk in September of 2005 - prior to Mom chekhking me out of the York Khounty B&B - The Doggy Nanny had a Persian Khat named Cholla. Her health was failing and it was evident it was time fur her to khross
Merdie's little humans khame ovFUR to help prepare the grave fur Angel Cholla - Mom khalled these pikhs Angels helping an Angel
One of the last pikhs Mom took of Cholla - this was Cholla thanking evFURRYone fur taking khare of her and letting her khross with dignity and without pain
Her final resting place
Part of being a responsible pet owner is knowing when it is time to let us go - Merdie's little beans were happy to help fur they understood what it meant
Now I'll turn this ovFUR to Mom so she khan tell woo about her Sunday passengers...

Thanks Khyra!

Yes, another great Sunday AM run from Hagerstown to Harrisburg fur The Last Resort Rescue - if you put in the names of Grady, Prince, and/or Vince, you'll see more information about themGrady was a stray in the horrible Gaston NC area - he's got a furever home now!Vinceand Prince were found together - running along the road in TNVince was a very good caretaker for allHe watched Grady much of the trip North and napped with PrinceAND he kept his eyes on me!He liked the charm too!They were never far from each otherPrince's turn to watch me!GradyVince checking out the fresh 'Pawsylvania' breezeBoth wondering what their futures hold!Vince

Here is the link to their Photobucket Album Slideshow AND here is the link to their Photobucket Album with videos! There aren't a lot of great pics - they were quite energetic and so wanting to explore - plus, the weather was overcast and misty - AND I again had the challenge of trying to snag pictures of a black dog who was often next to creme coloured one!

Grady was quite talkative as you'll hear in the videos -but I can't say I hear Prince or Vince make a sound! I was disappointed neither of them wanted to ride shotgun BUT I do believe it was because they wanted to be together AND be able to keep their eyes on Grady too! I did get plenty of kisses as we headed up I81!

We dedicated this run to our friends and furiends needing our good vibes AND in honour of Pay It Forward Day coming up this Thursday, April 29! Head over to TPH and K's Blog to read about it AND whilst you are there, Merdie would like you to read about some special Golden needs

Two other items I would like to mention briefly - please remember you'll be able to find Stella, Jo, and yes even AZ at their new blog; and here is another blog you might want to check out as well.

Once again, thanks for the support and kind words! They mean a lot to us!

Life With Dogs said...

I love that opening shot! How beautiful!

I must have Mondays and Fridays confused, because Monday makes me drop a lot of F bombs. :)

Cat Mandu said...

Khyra, you have been sooo busy! I was happy to see that the robins have made it to your house, too.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We're all leaky over the story of Cholla. She was a purrty kitty.

The transports were all furry cute! Your mom certainly deserved all the puppy kisses she got cause she's a wonderful, caring person!

Ina in Alaska said...

More pretty flowers and more pretty MFT shots. Vince and Prince were quite the cutie patootie pair but Grady was a bit noisy for our ears. We hope they all find great homes.

Very nice contest entry - good luck.

Abby said...

Hi, Khyra...

I don't know how you & your Mom keep up with everything...

Posting every day, commenting on everyone's post & usually first, the weekly transports...

My Mom thinks your days are longer than her's...BOL

Anyway, Thanks for all you & your Mom do...You are amazing...

Abby xxxooo

The Paw Relations said...

We liked the pictures of mamma Robin on her nest. Mumm reallt loves Vince, because that's her husbands name. she has to say that Vince, does indeed look like a Vince.

Gus said...

Khyra....we want to know if you have a Khorner named for you because you are such a bad doggy or because you need a special place for bones?

We sure are glad your mom is helping those doggies. Tennessee is generally not a great place for dogs. Around here, if it "don't hunt" it sometimes don't ear.


giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Monday mornings are not quite so bad knowing you helped a few more beautiful and deserving dogs to a better place! Thanks for all you do!

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

You is so rite, Khyra, bout peeples letting go and letting us cross with dignity when the time comes. Too many peeples keep their furkids hanging on too long coz they cannot let go and that is cruel.

Erica Vojnich said...

Cholla's tribute was beautiful! Thank you for sharing it!

I didn't know you did transports for The Last Resort! My husband and I volunteer with Rotts N' Pups ( I think we've done a transport for The Last Resort before. Small world!

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Woooos Miss Khyra! I see woo have been enjoying the good life, laying in the yard while woo Mom is once again borrowing the xterra fur her wonderful work!
What a lovely post about the kitty and kids.. Mom has a few kitties and a pup that have gone to the bridge, just waiting fur her... she still misses her favorite kitty of 16 years, he will always be in her heart.

Frankie Furter said...

How wonderful!! We love the pictures of everything!! Doing transport is so special and seeing the dogs looking out the window of the car makes mom cry. We hope they have wonderful forever homes. Your flowers are beautiful too! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Rambo said...

They are some lucky transports. Lets hope they find a good home! G-Mom loved the picture of the Mama robin birdie, cause she loves birdies....and she said the tree is beautiful too.
Happy Monday!

Ginger Jasper said...

What a ovely thing your doggy nany and Merdies beans did for the lovely kitty. Doggy nanny would have been so sad, but to have that little rememberance plot is beautiful. The three transports were again so lovely. You could see the sadness in the eyes. Will they be able to stay together in their new forever home. They so obviously adore each other.. Now you have a robin nest in your tree. Mum says she is so pleased to see that. Grandma loved robins and we are always so pleased to see one. Take care .. Love GJ xx

Samantha said...

Great pictures - amazing that you caught the robin nest!!! Those transports are incredible - today, for some reason, Mom got a bit leaky, thinking of those dogs in such an unfamiliar place - but she brightened when you wrote about the kisses you got - smiled even. You and your mama are such hard workers for us pups all over!
Big Hugs xoxoxoxo
PS: Thanks for the bloggie addresses!

bbes tribe said...

Those are some handsome dudes your mom got to hang with over the weekend. There's something a little familiar about that Vince guy that I really like. BOL!
your pal,

JD and Max said...

Hi Khyra - your mom is quite possibly one the most wonderful humans we've never met, she is so kind to our fellow dog-kind, we love her to bits! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

KB said...

I love the Vince and Prince pair!! I wish that I could have 100 dogs in my house...

Love the robin photo. We had snow again last night (about 6"), and as I tried to tramp through it, I thought to myself "Khyra can have all of this and TAKE IT back east!". I know that Khyra always loves snow!

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

Great post, great pics, and another great transport!!!


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

How wonderful of the bipeds to pay tribute to Cholla..
What lovely transports you had again.. They are so lucky to have you help them along to their forever homes...

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Sagira said...

Very sorry to hear about the loss. It is always so hard to know when the right time to let them go is.

You have the cutest passengers. :)

Scout and Freyja said...

Yesh, it is furry imPAWtant that humans know when to let us go to heaven. They don't realize that we won't be mad at them for what they do - we loved them during life and we will be waiting for them in death to spend eternity by their side.

Junior and Orion said...

That Vince sure is a handsome one!

That final resting place for Cholla (hope we spelled that right) is very nice.

Huffle Mawson said...

Your mum is always doing such wonderful things Khyra! Happy Monday to you all.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for your offer Khyra. I'll be sure to let you know if I ever corner the big kitty. I'm not ashamed to say that I might need a little help.

Hope your Mom's latest passengers find nice homes very soon.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Khyra and Mom!
Yes! Beautiful flowers!
Vince, Prince and Grady are adorable!
Kisses and hugs

Keisha said...

Hi dere! :)

Cory said...

Grete is just a wee bit in love with Vince and Prince!

Thanks for sharing Cholla's story.

Sophie Brador said...

Your mom is so great to help all those doggies. They are all pretty handsome dudes too. Sorry to hear about Cholla. You look lovely as usual, Khyra.


Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi Khyra
I have a cherry tree blooming just like yours.
Your words are so wise Khyra about knowing the "right time" for our furbodys to go to the bridge. We must not be selfish even though it is so hard.

I hope all those doggys got furever homes.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Another great transport with a happy happy ending! The robins are so cute...and it is nice to see you under the pussywillow. Mom's story about Cholla reminded us how important knowing it is to know when to say goodbye.

Dory and the Mama said...

Mama and me just love the pink snow flowers and especially the robin on her nest..

Not nearly as much as those three lovely transports your Mama had on Sunday tho!


JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Beautiful blossoms.
And Cholla looks like a real sweetie, purrs.
Great transport, with some special woofies.

LUCKY LUKE said...

Beautiful pitchers as all ways, and it seem like you got the range of pretty colors in your transports... all good lookers!

I do so hope that the Vince and the Prince can find a home together...

Your kids and pets post has my the Mom all leaky... very touching.

Fank you and your the Mom for all you do for the boys and girls who need a lift. You are the best!

wif love from the Luke
