Thursday With Too Many T's To Khount

Thinking how to make this heat go away
I tried talking to it
So I thought some more
I mean, my paws won't even stay khrossed - they slide off each other! HowevFUR are we going to help Rudy get home:

Rudy was lost in the same area of NJ as Rocky - Rudy's family khontakhted Rocky's pawesome foster mom Amy fur help - since the drill was all fresh in evFURRYone's heads, Rocky's team went into akhtion - websites were posted; police, animal khontrol, vets notified; fliers khreated; etc etc etc - he's barely more than a baby - so it is urgent he be found soon ESPECIALLY given the weather here in The Northeast - please keep Rudy in your thoughts -

Whilst thinking good thoughts fur Rudy, please chekhk out a beaWOOtiful ChokhoLabraGal in Chicago that needs to be rehomed - our snakhk pals at Amy's House of Khats pawed us about Bailey - what a leak making tale - I wonder if Khousin Ab in Blast Furnace AZ need a sisfur?

Bailey's khurrent furamily is trying to do the khorrekht thing fur her - let's help make it happen!

Mom FINALLY snagged the flashiemoviebeastie to dokhument our yummy pressies from Stumpy and Khompany!
Thank WOO Stumpy Alfy Fenway and Cyndi!
I kept eyeing up the khrunch khard SOOOO Mom had me pose with it
Nom nom nom!!!
Here is video proof of how tasty it is AND how I suggest woo best enjoy it!

AGAIN: THANKS VERY VERY VERY MUCH! All the past, present, and future passengers of the Xterra appreciate it very much!
Loading up the skhwirrel khannon
Look at that taunting face
Mom asked if she khould take ovFUR now - I said yes bekhause my tummy is full and I need a nap! I'll see woo here tomorrow!
Khyra's Mom here - I wanted to pass along an email I received via Mary in NC about Irina in GA - we are hoping spreading the word will help Irina's new endeavour get off on the correct paw - so to woof!
Dear Friends and Fellow Rescuers-
It saddens me to tell everyone that we will be closing Alacarte Catering sometime this fall. After struggling for over two years now we just can't afford not to make money and it does not look like the economy is going to get any better any time soon.

However, we will be starting a new venture at the same location...a pet thrift store called


We are now looking for donations of new and gently used pet products of all shapes and sizes for all kinds of animals. We are planning to open sometime in mid September.

Please contact me if you have questions about shipping or picking up large items (we can do local pick ups any time).

Please spread the word...this venture must succeed in order for me to continue devoting as much of my time to Rotts 'n Pups Rescue as possible.

Items can be mailed to:
Alacarte Catering
8610 Roswell Road
Suite 510
Sandy Springs, GA 30350

Thank you all for your support. We are very excited about making this transition and look forward to dealing more with animals rather than people :-)

Irina Clow, Owner
Alacarte Catering
& Founder of Rotts 'N Pups Rescue

SO, if any of you are in that area - or can get items to somene closer to there - please keep this very worthy venture in mind!

Sorry today's post got a bit long BUT it all came together with the Thursday's typical theme!

Life With Dogs said...

I'm concerned about Rudy in this heat. Will share...

Sierra Rose said...

Oh my! Another lost puppy!! Hope the search team is ready to go again for this pal. Paws crossed.
Sorry to hear about the chocolate lab!!! Love chocolates, and wish there could be some training with baby that could be done before surrender. Yet, HOPING there is someone looking and ready for a new great pal in the area if that is what needs to happen. Please keep us posted on all!!!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Stella said...

Sue of the Porties said today is National Chocolate Day, so get your Aunty to adopt a Chocolate Lab, Khyra.

So sorry to hear about the little Bulldog guy, I hope he gets found very fast. He should want to be with people (so young) so perhaps he will come sooner than Rocky did.

We are having 68 degrees tonight, dear girl, can I send you some?


happy said...

Keeping paws crossed for Rudy to be found. Poor little pup.

Thank you for keeping our little furry friend in your prayers. We really appreciate it.

BeadedTail said...

Oh no, another lost puppy? That's news we didn't want to hear but we're sending lots of purrs and crossing paws that Rudy is found very soon.

Khyra, we hope your weather gets better so you can sit outside under your tree comfortably.

Squirrels sure are cute even though they can be pains in the floofy pantaloons!

We hope Penny Pinching Pets is a success! Thanks for letting us know about it!

JackDaddy said...

I had to laugh when I read the part about gently used toys! I think with Jack there are only two types of toys: new and unstuffed and chewed. No wait, that's 3 types of toys. New, Unstuffed and chewed.

No one expects the Spanish Inquisition! :)

MoMo said...

Purrs for Rudy to be found soon. Poor baby!

Too bad you can't come to visit us and enjoy the chilly weather. Rain included.

Kess And Her Mama said...

Hope Mother Nature listened to your "talking to" and some cool weather is on the way. Stay indoors and drink lots of water. I guess the squirrel knew all that already!

Teddy Bear said...

I am also hoping this heat will go away! I hope Rudy is found soon. He's so young.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

We are gonna purr lots for Rudy. stay safe Rudy ~ and please allow yoorself to be caught.

Mango said...

So that must be why my outside water tastes funny... SQUIRRELS! Yuh, they are invading my yard because apparently their usual places are dried up. Well, this is not to be tolerated.


Maggie and Mitch said...

You look funny eating a card, Khyra, even if it is edible!
Our paws are crossed that Rudy is found asap! It's too hot for any doggie to be out in this undoGly heat!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

The Thundering Herd said...

Too hot to cross paws? Where is Turbo to force changes in our weather?

tula said...

now RUDY?! come'on buddy-- it's too hot to be on the run! With Amy's team on it- luck is on his side.

Khyra- i was watching woo's video & thought i did the same thang. snag the cookie bag. but then woo went ahead & snagged an actual cookie. naughty but way 2 go! woo's floof was flooooooofin'!!

we got some stuff we can send to Irina. paws krossed 4 her.


♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We will cross our paws that Rudy is found before this heat takes its toll. Tough to be out there alone.

Great nommies you got there - those cookies sure made you happy, Miss Waggly Floofy Tail Khyra.

Good luck to Irina in her new business - we hope for the best for her in her new venture.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Ricky the Sheltie said...

I would not allow that squirrel to mokh me!! That's just not right, darn squirrel!

Maggie Mae said...

Puppy prayers for Rudy, I sure hope he is found soon.

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Khyra, lookiing khute as usual!

Oh my goodness, poor little Rudy. We are sending lots of purrs that he is found soon!

Great interest in Penny Pinching Pets. Thanks for the info!

Ina in Alaska said...

Hoping Rudy will be found, the heat in your khorner of thw planet is unbelieveable! Wish I khould send woo some of our fresh, cool air. Hugs to everyone! xoxox

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

It's never good to be lost. but a brachycephalic breeds breed in the current heat and humidity? NOT GOOD!! I hope they find him soon!

the khrunchy khards cracked me up. I'm glad Khyrah enjoyed it.

houndstooth said...

I sure hope Rudy comes home soon!

It looks like you really enjoyed that crunch card. I've never had one, but it certainly looks delicious! Do you ever roll over and cool your belly in the Husky Air System?


Jacqueline said...

Best of luck finding adorable Rudy; we will keep our paws crossed for his safe return...Gorgeous Khyra, we think it's impossible for you to ever take a bad photo=even in the heat!...Stay cool sweet friends...xoxo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Mack said...

Paws crossed over here that Rudy gets found soon! Poor guy.

Anonymous said...

Oh Khyra you are as beautiful as ever. Feel free to send some of that heat over to Norway since it hasn't been much of a summer here.

Prayers on the way for everyone who needs them :)

Anonymous said...

What a cheeky squirrel thinking that pool of liquid refreshment is for him. I SO want to wipe that smirk off his creepy little rodent face, but the thought of heat stroke from your triple digit temps has me looking up the phone # of your local Critter Control.
Hope it cools off there soon, very soon.

Remington said...

Stay cool, my friend! I don't move much past the air conditioner vent when it's hot. I like your squirrel -- it's cute!

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

Hi Khyra. Sorry we haven't been around much lately. Between Yuu-Chan not feeling great, and #1 having piles of work, the scribes have been preoccupied. Sorry about all that heat. #1 says it's getting warm up in PEI too but she's spending her days working in a friend's A-C'd office!


Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi Khyra! First thanks for crossposting to us about Bailey - we have our paws crossed for her to find a good home soon! And we are purring lots for Rudy to be found soon!!

And we love the pics of you of course - so adorable as always! And we are always so jealous of those tasty looking crunch cards for doggies - they need them for us kitties too!!

And thanks for the info on the new gently used pet store - we have a ton of toys that are gently used, in that we totally ignored them - so that may be a way to pass them along to someone who would be more interested!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

I sure hope Rudy is found soon. It is really too hot for a little one to be outside lost. I bet he is so scared and that is heartbreaking. We have our paws crossed, and prayers being said. I sure hope the Lab finds a good home. They are awesome dogs. Khyra eating her cookies was fun to watch. I think she probably wanted some more!!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Wyatt said...

Poor Rudy, we will fill our horseshoes up with wishes again.
Hey, I like the idea of penny pinching pets! We got a recycled crate and a doggie snow coat from our neighbor, when her dog grew too big! Then we gave my puppy snow coat to a little dog, when I got too big!

Shelley said...

Khyra, I was thinking too about how to beat the heat! I think we need a swimming pool!! Hope your friend Rudy is found, I don't like to think about any of our fur friends out in this heat!
Berner Bumps,

Jan's Funny Farm said...

You always have long posts. So much news. Don't know how you keep up. Sort of like a mini CB for woofies.

Paws crossed Rudy is found quickly! How fortunate Rocky's searchers banded together to help Rudy.

Think cool. Keep cold water, ice, lying in the snow .... any image of cooler times in your mind as you pant.

Pearl and Daisy said...

We hope Rudy is found soon. Poor guy. :o(

Pug love from,
Pearl & Daisy

Heather and Ellie said...

Poor Rudy! Being a three month old English Bulldog in this weather while being lost sounds like a terrible combination....hope he's found soon!

Jan said...

The only gently used toys we have are Nylabones. We hid them years ago.

You are the featured centerfold on Skippy's blog.

YD, sometimes with ♥Samantha and ♥June said...

Hope Rudy is found soon, especially in this heat. Being a bulldog, she can overheat easily(at least that's what we heard).
We'll keep our paws crossed.

Penny Pinching Pets is a great idea unfortunately we do not have any gently-used toys. Ours are almost always destroyed by Samantha.

Stay cool Khyra!

Sam & June

Junior and Orion said...

We will be purring up a storm for little Rudy to get found! And we are purring for Bailey, the Chocolate Lab to get a new home. We are glad her family is willing to go to such lengths to get her a new place.

Dory and the Mama said...

We are keeping your paws crossed for Rudy...

In the meantime we aren't afraid of the let us know if you need any help with that tree rat!!

Smileys & Snuggles!
Dory, Jacob and Bilbo

Sagira said...

Oh no, not another lost puppy. :(

3 doxies said...

It is way to hot for a dog to be missing. Will be crossing our paws fur Rudy.
Dat squirrel be drinking you water.....GROSS!!!!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

OH we sure hope that Rudy can be found like Rocky was. Who better to ask for help than Rocky's Mom..
Mmm cookies. You sure do make those look super yummy.. Will you save any for Merdie?

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Benny and Lily said...

Zona said...

The heat is miserable. Did you come up with any solutions?

I'm sending up prayers for Rudy. I pray he finds his way home SOON!!

When he does, a crunch card is in order. That is the coolest thing I ever did see!!


Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Poor Rudy! I hope he gets found soon...all our positive energy is calling to him. I hope you get some relief from your heat wave, Khyra! Your temps are as bad as Arizona's (and WORSE than ours)! That chewie card was very neat...and we love the idea of an animal thrift store. Mom has promised to look through and see if there are not a few things we can send.

K9friend said...

Worried about that little cutie patootie Rudy. I hope he's found soon!


Angus Mhor said...

I'm purrin' for that funky-faced pup Rudy, Khyra.

You know, you're khinda purrrrrty!

Lorenza said...

Paws crossed for Rudy!
Take care
Kisses and hugs
