Words and Walks on Wednesday

Rocky with Amy!!!
Rocky with Bridget!!!!
I met her Friday night and again Saturday morning - it was her Jeep woo saw in the sunrise pikh I had on Sunday's blog - she has GSD's and one of those Belgian Tervurens - she had a Jindo at one time but she khrossed in the past year -
Those four pikhs were sent by the other nice lady Chris that played a furry important part in Rocky's rekhovery - we met her as well Friday night/Saturday morning - she had taken them with her cell and shared them with Rocky's Rescue list at 11:24pm Monday -

Here is a pikh Amy sent from her place around 12:28am Tuesday -
And another - along with one of Amy and Jay's khanines - they have three Sibes and a Mal - if I rekhall khorrekhtly - I had gotten to meet their Rocky in NJ but we didn't get the chance to take any pikhs of him

I am going to khopy out the note Amy sent us explaining how they did khapture our special pal -

Rocky was rescued tonight!!! He went from being alone, scared and hungry this morning to sleeping peacefully in our living room with a fully belly and clean coat.
We got a call at around 5PM that he was in someone's yard. He had run behind their shed. Ironically enough, Andrew and I had just left a flier in their mail box today. Chris was closest, so she arrived first, followed by myself and Bridget. Chris did an amazing job watching Rocky, talking to him and throwing food (which he wouldn't take). We sat there for 2 hours. Bridget and Chris switched places, and a few minutes later, Rocky began to creep towards me at the largest exit. He laid down, and Bridget told me to slowly approach him, so I crawled to him (through a lot of nasty stuff!) sooooo slowly. I was able to extend my arm just enough to touch his nose with one finger, and when I did, I knew we had him. I could feel the relief coming from his body. He let me touch him, and I held onto his collar and slipped a leash on. That was it--we had him!!! We were all crying like babies. We couldn't have done it without Chris' patience and Bridget's direction.

After a few minutes, Rocky ate and drank. I am taking him to the vet tomorrow. We didn't want to traumatize him any further tonight since he's in good shape, just hungry and tired. He is doing well with our pack and loving the attention. I can't believe that he is the same dog I saw a few nights ago. I truly believe that Rocky wanted to be rescued and wanted someone to reach out and touch him. Rocky wants a family to love him and give him the attention that he so deserves. I know he will find that, and until then, he will be with us...though we would love to keep him...but 4 dogs is too much already. :-(

And, finally, I want to thank you all for your prayers, support, tears and love. Rocky has no idea how lucky he is, but I know how lucky he and I both are to have all of you. We truly have an amazing rescue family, and I am humbled by the generosity and love I have felt from each of you.

With love,


******We would love to share these flowers with all those that helped get Rocky home!I khlosed my eyes to make a wish that he gets the home he deserves

Last week I indikhated there wouldn't be a Walkin' Wednesday fur various reasons - WELL, we decided to upload what we had shot - here is the link fur that one -

AND here is the Walkin' Wednesday we had khaptured fur this week's post -

The furst one was filmed when we didn't know Rocky was on the loose - and the sekhond was filmed when we didn't know he was already in protekhtive khustody!

BUT since woo've been deprived of seeing my phloofy self in akhtion - and listening to my mom babble as only she khan do - we decided to give woo a DoubleShotOKhyra - especially since next week is THAT day of the month already!

BTW, khan woo believe this? Here is part of a khomment left by a certain large - ummm - bummed khanine gal from the other part of Pawsylvania

Oh sweet Rocky...he must be so thirsty and tired...perhaps I should pop up there for some rehydration with him? Does he date?

Hey Mango: what do woo think about a battle of the muskhular and ample butts fur Rocky?



PeeEssWoo: If woo would like to see more/learn more about the pawesome work done by Rotts 'n Pups, please chekhk out their website ! ! ! - OR if woo think woo have the perfekht furever home fur Rocky, here is his Petfinder page!!!

Can you believe that poor Rocky will have to learn how to be safe and loved? I am glad he has other doggies around to tell him that it is OK to relax and enjoy his good fortune.

As you know, we are thrilled Rocky is home. But we are also glad you posted the walking videos. We enjoyed watching them (and even a piece of Khyra floof dropping to the road).

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We are so happy to know that Rocky is safe. Many thanks again to all those who helped capture him and bring him to safety.

How wonderful to have a double dose of walking with Miss Khyra. We see a lot of those furry bunnies running around here now too. TD and Ciara are working overtime to keep them out of their yard.

Hope you see a cool down soon - it is actually cool here this morning.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

TwoSpecialWires said...

What a huge sigh of relief. We have been in knots, full of tension and worry. We can't begin to describe the feeling of happiness when we realized Rocky was rescued. Moma cried and cried . From our end, we have a feeling that the warnings and conversations about bolting and running are a long ways from ending in our home.

So many thanks to all that helped in this rescue, and thank YOU, Khyra and Mom for keeping us updated.

Lots of love
Jake and Fergi and Family

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh my...

A battle of the muscle butts???

You'd have your workie cut out for ya there, girlie!

Yes, Khyra, I put on my nurse's uniform and managed to get some fluids into Rocky...he just adores blackberry smoothies...I thought he would...

I gave him a bed bath and did some range of joint motion to make sure he didn't get all contracted and stuff after his long journey...and a backrub...

He seems as good as new...!!!

What an amazing group of rescuers this boy has!! I so hope he finds his forever home quickly...he sounds like a fine boy who needs a chance at love and companionship...

And that works both ways for the lucky hoomans whom he will adopt!

Khisses dear girl!!!
