Some of me
Then we inkhlude some
Mom had been rubbing her tummy so she was doing her best khute pose! So now I turn it ovFUR to Mom so she khan paw about Sunday's transport:
You can read about her AND the others that did get to make the trek North HERE on The Last Resort Rescue Site
on their adoptable pets page - I hadn't had the chance to REALLY read about Sunday's passengers prior to putting this post together- I know I always tell my special guests how lucky they are but in this case, they really were - Antoinette - and her spitting image son Anton - were pulled from one of the horrible gassing places just minutes before THAT was to happen (GASTON NC) -The sky at 5:54am - actually, this is just alongside the place where I transferred last Sunday's special puppies - I83 is just ahead beyond the green lightIrisI took this prior to departing The Waffle House parking lot in Hagerstown - btw, I treated myself to breakfast for a change - YUM!Antoinette came with a crate; Iris stayed in the back with herAntoinette smiling in HarrisburgWe were meeting the next driver at The Earthink/AMP Building - Antoinette IMMEDIATELY spotted the other pups 'there'Iris was just so mellow and regalEverytime I stopped to take Antoinette's picture, she came to give me kisses!Checking out the others!Her ears were SOOOOO soft - had she ridden shotgun, I KNOW I would have stroked them the entire 75 miles!This sums up her personality*BTW, you see plenty of tongue - it was already close to the mid 80's at 9am with LOTS of my favourite HUMIDITY (not)Since we had made excellent time heading North, we had more time to kill before their next drive arrived so we got back in the Xterra and fired up the canine and human cool air machine! I did have one bummer moment on the trip North - I'm somewhat 'used' to seeing dead critters along the interstate but this is the first time I was pretty sure I saw a dead bear in the grassy median - a few miles South of Newville - it made me sadIris watching one wayWhilst Antoinette watched the otherIris decided the front seat would be a great place to chill Such great eyes!She expressed her thanks to allAntoinette enjoyed stretching out back there**Have I mentioned how gorgeous she was?Well she was!*Her family was so excited to meet her - her mom wrote the tranport list on Friday thanking us for getting her to them - that makes me leak (again) just writing it - she sent us a note late Sunday night with a picture Sam took of the new family - she also indicated that Antoinette is now SCOUT! I wrote back and said I'd update the post to reflect the new name for her new lifeResting up to meet her people too!
All I can say is WOW - what gems! Their overnight host gave them A's as well!
I did this transport FOR The Last Resort Rescue personnel - as part of my second anniversary of transporting AND to mark the first anniversary of meeting a very special passenger who will forever be embedded in my head and heart - as you'll hear in one of the videos, 6/6/09 was the day I met Laska - he's now been safe and loved for an entire year - of course, those of you that have been following us since then, know his story - and for those of you that don't, suffice it to say, two weeks after he came North, he got out and was out in the wilds of New Jersey for an entire week - I did pull one post in particular to share related to his adventure AND the support demonstrated by The Blogging World - I will never forget the tears shed over him and for him - sad AND then finally happy ones!
Here is this week's Photobucket Slideshow of pictures AND here is this week's Photobucket Album with FIVE videos - you'll notice the slideshow includes some pictures of Harrisburg and the Peregrines - I did detour over that way and saw them! I'll include the picture 'here' tomorrow - Blogger was being a real PITA Sunday afternoon - I had to upload pics one or two at a time to ensure they loaded - GRRRRRRR!
Once again, thanks so much for your support!
