Monday With Multiple M's

Now to turn it ovFUR to Mom:

Thanks Khyra (and Merdie)

Lookie at the cool thing Ina snagged in AlaskaShe saw it at an agility event she went to - and got 'busted' as she took the pic - but THAT Phyll understood too!Thanks SO much for sharing that!

Well, what an 'auss'ome weekend it was - I'll try to recap it as best I can!Saturday 3:41pmDrama The INCREDIBLE AussieHe liked to hang his paws over the front of the seatHe was a joy!His colours were just fantastic*Energy in motion - his foster had shared he was still getting used to his paws and stuff as he filled the role of gangly adolescentWe talked to quite a few folks whilst we waited for his overnight hosts - one of the McD's staff asked if I'd heard of VIZSLAS - that was what his family had - of course, I told him about Dennis and Tucker *He wanted MORE Happy Hearts!**What colours!*And jodhpurs!

I did include the links for his Photobucket pics and videos on Sunday's post - some of you might have already viewed them - since they were together prior to Sunday's post time, I wanted to give all of you a chance to look at them since I knew it would be for a full post today - the perils of having only a few passengers AND plenty of time prior to their next drivers arriving!

Here is his Album with videos AND here is the slideshow of just pictures - and here is the link for the Canadian Aussie Rescue that put together his incredible journey from Columbia/Cayce SC to Ottawa ONT Canada!

A bit after 6pm Sunday we got this message from the transport coordinator for his trip:

Drama has made it safe and sound...glad to see nobody puppy napped him ;o)

What a wonderful dog. The trip doesn't seem to have effected him at all..he is happy and very social.

Thank you Heather so much for rescueing him from the shelter and caring for him until we could move him.

Thank you everyone who took the time to help get him safely to Ottawa. It's so nice to see so many people working together to help a single dog.....anyways it's time to go play with Drama!

THANK YOU

I couldn't wind down early enough Saturday nightSunday morning to get to bed at a decent time - I optimistically set my cell to allow for a chance to hit some blogs and stuff prior to heading to Etters to pick up Copper and Trooper for their journey to Allentown - needless to say, I reset the cell several times before FINALLY getting up - I'm sure I'll make up for Sunday nightMonday

Sunday 7:21amTrooper - he came from Hertford NC on his way to VT - he's thought to be 1 - 2 years old - he's a full BrittanyCopper came North from Atlanta on her way to CT - she's 1-1/2 years old - and a Brittany blend - her overnight hosts suggested her 'blend' might include GusWFT (or TekaJRT) - and having spent time with her, I'll concur - Copper's fancy paw workAnd Trooper'sSunday's Charm*She did rest every now and then! She was a great rider with me - one of the other Sunday drivers mentioned she was doing jumping jacks even while she was tethered!Quite THE PLUME!!!Trooper waiting patiently for me to get him out in FoglesvilleCopper's smooooooth movesLooking hitherCopperTrooper then looked yonCopperTheir appearances really complemented each otherCopperTrooper was such a sweet boy

This transport was done for New England Brittany Rescue - here is their Photobucket Album with five videos AND their Photobucket slideshow

I already mentioned that I didn't quite have as much time as I hoped for prior to hitting the road but I did have a chance to pop onto FB and saw the sad news about Blaze crossing The Rainbow Bridge early Sunday morning -

Blaze from The Moondance Huskies in CT - so we did the run for him as well as The Doggy Nanny's birthday - it was a bit rough to talk about in the video but I babbled enough to hopefully make my point - Khyra and I are sorry for the loss of such a handsome boy

I guess that will do it for this M With M M's

P.S. Amy let us know late Sunday evening that she heard from Rudy's family: HE HAS BEEN FOUND!!! He's going to be staying at the vet's for the week to monitor his condition as he was down to 18#, had been snacked on by lots of ticks, and was very dehydrated - she's planning on going to visit him this week - UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Hi You Guys!

Drama is beyond gorgeous, I love that whole strange look these multi-color characters get! So glad he beat the rap and got on his way to CA.
Is Rudy the little Staffordshire bull that belonged to a law officer? If it is, I had given up on him, thrilled to hear he has been found!
Hurray for Trooper and Copper too. What a terrific job you have done, Phyll. Did you get home in time to celebrate Mum's BD?

Kisses,
Stella (and Jo)

MAXMOM said...

Great job once again on your transports. Merdie and Khyra are cute as ever. But boy oh boy was Drama ADORABLE! If we were ready for another dog right now, I might be really tempted to try to adopt him. He looks like he would make a great agility dog. :)

That Drama sure is a handsome boy. Us Aussies usually are though :)

ocmist said...

Love all the “M’s” at the first of this post, and that Drama dog is really pretty… so colorful, and such pretty “britches.” Trooper and Copper were also nice looking dogs and we hope that they have gotten some great forever homes. We are so sorry to hear about Blaze, too. The “Bridge” has had a lot of traffic lately… :(
