Sunday Sharing - The Road Trip Edition

Let's pikhture Rocky safe in the AM - this was a shot at 5:48am Saturday - shot from The Subway parking lot where we gathered - this pikh WAS further down in the post but we made it disappear - so we made it materialise again HERE - my Virgo Mom is twitching but that khould also be the lakhk of sleep
How I wish Norwood's Mom's dream had khome true - he shared her dream of Tula and Rocky playing together

These are EVFURRYWHERE we walked and hung out!

This was me just before 6:30pm Friday


South towards TMI and HIA

We did have a good omen as we khrossed the bridge - one of the PF parents and one of the PF boys flew just ovFUR The Xterra - Mom was THRILLED!Pondering along I81/I78 as to how Rocky is doing Sunsetting between Allentown and Easton along I78

We arrived in Little Falls/Woodland Park at 9:30 - and went to hangout at The Subway Khommand Post

We met Amy AND Laska's Mom Sam - I also got to meet one of Amy's Sibes - appropriately named ROCKY - I also got to meet Amy's furry khute human pup Andrew - he was a year old in May - what a sweet AND helpful boy!

It was funny when we met Sam - Mom was telling the lady in the Prius she had transported Rocky from Hagerstown to Harrisburg so we khame to see if we khould help - hoping maybe he'd rekhognise The Xterra AND to let them have the towel he had been on the most during the trip - the nice lady asked, "Phyllis? I'm Sam" - it was one of those OMD moments!

Since Rocky had been in the Xterra for a period of time, our furst hour or so was spent driving around areas he had been seen previously - I saw khats and a deer - others spotted a skunk!

We all spread out in an attempt to minimise the number of humans khamped out akhross from the area he frekhwented the most - AND his foster mom Debbie finally arrived from Wilson NC - she was unfurtunate enough to have nothing but gridlokhked traffikh khoming up I95 on a Friday Working my khorner - Mom and I hung out with a nice guy named Ray that lived on Long Island - he had TWO of 'me' - Storm and Heineken (Heineken had already been named when he was adopted and they didn't want to change his name)

Rocky was spotted just before 3am fur a bit but got spooked and ran off - we were already tukhked in The Xterra as to not disrupt their plans

I alternately rested and watched with Mom
It was furry hard work!
Bakhk to sleep
At 5:30, Mom saw Rocky trotting in front of this nail salon - THESE SHOTS WERE TAKEN WHEN THE LIGHT WAS BETTER SO ALL KHAN SEE HIS AREA

She got out and softly khalled Rocky -and khalled Amy - who then khame around the khorner of the building following him - she told Mom to stay - and like a good human Mom sat down on the khurbHe then went up this street (Lackawanna) - the other street you saw is McBride - we then lost sight of him but think he went to the left short of the bridge - turning right would have put him bakhk to his safe place akhross from The Subway -

UPDATE: the sekhtion the left side of the pikh - not far from where woo see the khar is about where he was holed up!!!

The rear of the parking lot area you see to the right of the nailshop and to the left of the commercial building you see is where he's seen most of the timeThis is a shot to the other side of McBride - UPDATE: THIS WAS THE FRONT PART TO THE AREA WHERE HE WAS SNAGGED!A Siberian Mind Meld fur an Akita?!?The sparrows working the phloof I've left on Khyra's Jersey Khorner - they love their new imported from Pawsylvania nest khushioningMore napping before we hit the roadWondering why he wouldn't want to meet meWhilst waiting at the light after getting gas in TrexlertownPaws khrossed fur better news SOON

I'm going to let Mom finish the post

Thanks Khyra

AND THANKS TO ALL OF YOU that have left messages here and/or FB - it was a rewarding yet frustrating trip - as Khyra already shared, we left at 6:30 Friday night - we left New Jersey at 7:30 Saturday morning - we got back here about 10:45 - traffic was a bit heavier between Allentown and Harrisburg than it had been going to NJ - I'm glad we went - but so wish we could have helped more - I was glad to see Rocky again - even if it wasn't as I had hoped it might be - with him giving me kisses again

It was quite an experience - it was so nice to meet some incredible people that are so devoted and dedicated to helping our very special animal friends -

I did put all the pics together into a Photobucket Slideshow - the pics you see here are there too but it was jut easier to upload all of them -

I might have to hit the 'Mark All As Read' GR button again as I have TWO transports today - I hit the road around 6am for a Hagerstown to Harrisburg 8am leg for The Last Resort Rescue THEN head right back down to Hagerstown for the after lunch Hagerstown to Harrisburg leg - which will be to York again - the folks that live in Stewartstown have the leg to Allentown so we'll meet by The York County SPCA again -for Rotts 'n Pups - THEIR run this weekend is in honour of Rocky! I couldn't say no to could I?

SO, we won't be around much - please accept our apologies in advance!

Hugz&Khysses From Khyra's Khorner



Miss Khyra
Geez that Rocky is slippery! You even put out the Floof but only the sparrows took the bait. Mom's gonna try to dream about him again and tell him there is a nice cookie face tula up here wanting to meet him. I'll leave out the part of the dream where tula had him in a bitey face lock.
Paws crossed here too!

Stella said...

I am happy that you two got to go and meet up with some of the workers and see Rocky himself. If he can stay safe, it shouldn't be too much longer, d'ya think?


Huffle Mawson said...

Rocky will be caught. I can feel it in my waters.

Teddy Bear said...

Ohhhh, Rocky's so close to being caught! We're crossing our paws that it won't be much longer.

Busy Buttons said...

Come on, Rocky! Let the nice humans help you and get you to a wonderful home with lots of cookies, toys, belly rubs, and scratches!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Khyra and Mom!
It is good news that you saw him. He must be very scared.
Lets hope today will be the day!
Good luck on your transport!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

BeadedTail said...

We feel much better that you have seen Rocky and know he's okay and we can't wait to celebrate when he's finally home! It's only a matter of time before he's rescued again, we can feel it! We are crossing paws and sending lots of purrs for him! We're glad you got to meet Sam too. Have a safe trip today!

Snowie Baby said...

Luvly pictures!


Maggie and Mitch said...

Bummer! Aren't you hungry enough yet, Rocky? Our paws remain crossed!

Martha and Bailey said...

Khyra. you tell your mom she has no need to apologise at all.
We are so happy that she is trying so hard to help find Rocky.
We are sorry it was a frustrating trip but you got to meet some great humans!
Sometimes humans need to do that.
We just know that Rocky does want to meet you Khyra, but he will be a bit confused and scared right now.
We hope seeing the Wolf's Tour bus turns out to be a good omen.
Good luck to your mom with the transports although we are worried that she is going to be exhausted.
Tell her to have some 'me' time - whatever that is.
Paws still crosssed over here in Scotland - it is getting hard to pee..........!
love and kisses
Martha and Bailey xxxx

We're crossing all our paws that today will be the day.

Some great road trip shots of you, Khyra!


The Thundering Herd said...

Somehow, reading and commenting on blogs seems like the least important thing you will do for the canine world this weekend, so don't think I would worry too much about that.

As frustrating as Rocky is being, my admiration grows every day and how slippery he is. May his slipperiness run out today and he finally goes to his forever home.

Ricky the Sheltie said...

Gosh what a long trip and a long night - glad you got home safely but sorry to hear that Rocky eluded you. It's too bad he doesn't realize you all want to help him. But with so many sighting, certainly he will come to someone soon!

The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

Wow! That Rocky is one scared pup - we hope he starts trusting someone soon. Thank you for all of the work you do.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

Mack said...

Rocky is so close to his furrrever home! Hopefully today is the day!!!


giantspeckledchihuahua said...

ARGH! How frustrating!

Be safe today!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

If you don't at least try, you can never succeed. We are sorry your trip wasn't as successful as you had hoped. But maybe today is Rocky's day to come home.

Safe travels with your transports - another great job.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Maggie Mae said...

So close :( I really hopes that he is found soon. Thank you for all you are doing!

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Gus said...

apologies are not needed, you are not missing anything on our blog except Muzzer whining.


Heather and Ellie said...

Sorry to hear that he's still loose! We were really hoping that he had been found by now :( Silly Rocky...he needs to understand it's time to go home!

It's good you did get to see a glimpse of him, though.

houndstooth said...

That Rocky sounds like he wants to have one last adventure in the wild before he settles down to me. I have a feeling, with so many people seeing him, that he'll come home soon! He's lucky to have you looking out for him!


Sam said...

OMD! It almost makes me want to cry - so close and so far at the same time. I am keeping my fingers crossed, and the boys have their paws crossed, that he is home soon!

Christine, Sam's Mom

♥I am Holly♥ said...

You sure don't need to apologize with all of the work and driving you are doing. Rocky sure is good at slipping away very quickly. It's great that you see him though. Good luck today. I really don't see how you have enough energy as much work as you are doing! Be safe and we are saying prayers and have paws crossed. Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

The Furry Kids said...

Oh, Rocky! Please just go to one of those nice people out there. You'll feel so much better. And I bet they have yummy food and fresh water. I know it's scary, but you're safe with them.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Ok, so maybe I missed it Khyra?? They did get Rocky back right?? How nice of you and your Mom to make the trip to two are pawesome!


JackDaddy said...

Wow, Rocky must be one scared puppy not to want to come to anyone!! I'm glad that he's still hanging around so that maybe someone can find him!

Rambo said...

Rocky is scared right now...and probably real hungry. You should put a Burger King triple whoppher in a raccoon trap! That's how G-Mom and Poppy caught me when I was lost!!
Good luck and my paws are crossed for Rocky.

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Wow, we gotted back from being away for a week and mom's email was full of messages about Rocky so werd has really gotted around! I has my paws crossed that Rocky comes to hims senses and lets the nice peeples capshure him!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

So close! He is a wily fellow! But we still believe he will eventually come back in!

Jan said...

Poor Rocky must be so skhared and not understanding that the people all want so much to help him. You really worked hard, Khyra, glad you got a little rest.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

It's so good and encouraging to read that there are still Rocky sightings and that you had one too--All good signs. I really hope that he will remain safe from injury until he's returned home!

1000 Goldens said...

You are the best! We are glad you got a Rocky sighting and hope he finds his way home soon :(

Mango said...

Miss Khyra,
I suppose the good news is that you are all still seeing him. I guess he is kind of scared and used to being on his own. It is amazing how many humans are helping. We will keep our paws crossed.

Tell the DOH to get some rest.


Anonymous said...

I've been watching all of your facebooks posts and am just amazed at how kind and dilligent you are in finding Rocky. I really really hope your next status is good news. Can't say you didn't try! Go you and Khyra!

I'm so very much sorry that you weren't able to gets Rocky back home but I'm glad your mom got to see him with her own eyes and that he's okay. Maybe soon he'll be home.

I'm still purrin' for Rocky...if he could just slow down a bit and move toward kindness. What a great bunch of people, too!

Busy Buttons said...

My friends from the dog park Otto and Miko are both puppies still. Otto is a HUSKY :) and Miko is a giant Alaskan malamute. Miko's gonna be HUGE when he grows up!

Sagira said...

Bummer...I was really hoping Rocky would have been safe and sound by now.

Kari in WeHo said...
