I don't think I can adequately convey with just words as to how Brandy happened - even the condensed version would take too long to tell - and even then it would be lacking - I mean, the FB exchange between five of us about Brandy exceeded 100+ comments!I can say this GoldenHusky - originally from Kentucky - named Dava plays into it - actually, I got to see her pic after her mom Becky and I friended each other during the Brandy exchange
I shared a link to June and Samantha's Blog since June and Dava look so much alike - Becky agreed!
Let me try to retrace the events a bit - I happened to see a post on FB Thursday afternoon from Tom - you've seen Tom on some Monday posts since he's done overnights in the MD/WV area for some of my passengers heading to The Last Resort Rescue
Becky shared a link with Tom - for Brandy - she caught my eye because she was living in Khyra's B&B - aka THE YORK COUNTY SPCA
The exchange included Sam - Laska's mom - and Janice- another person you've seen on my transport posts for I've met her several times in Hamburg at the railtrail park near Cabelas - the discussion ensued about getting her to The Last Resort for placement and/or fostering - next thing you know, it was a done deal - of course, I'm missing about 50 steps in between but trust me: IT WAS MAGIC!
Since she was three minutes from me - five if I had to wait longer at the stop signs for traffic - I offered to get her - and meet someone half way between 'here' and the Bethlehem area - which is the Hamburg area -
So with lots of OMD - BLAH BLAH - fantastic - ETC, it was decided I would go bail her out Saturday am - Becky and her family already have five rescues of their own SOOOO that is why they aren't in a position to add Brandy BUT they've fallen in love with her - and hoped that by involving one other person - TOM - she could be saved -
Becky and her family are going to meet me there - OR by the time you read this - have met me there - so they can kiss her and hug her and wish her a good life - a life THEY HELPED HAPPEN -
SOOOOO, if ever you doubt the power ONE person can make with ONE dog, please remember Stanley - and think of Brandy
And for all of you that already know my mantra of things happening for reasons - and coincidentally enough (Becky included the words all for a reason on one of her comments to Tom), all of this exchange happened on the fourth anniversary of the day I went to THAT same SPCA and saw WHITNEY - and Brandy's transport will be on INTERNATIONAL HOMELESS ANIMAL DAY - which is also appropriate because Brandy was surrendered to the SPCA because her owners lost their home
I've got one other thing to share today - it was already planned for today since it ties in with this being a Saturday - and a day when many weddings occur - here in our own 'Blog World' I know of two taking place - Ruby Penny and Frankie's and one of the KHAT bloggers - who also happens to do some DOG transports - Erin actually drove Maya, Merlin, and Oliver two weeks ago on one of their Virginia legs
I know all of you recall the sad story of Trisha and Jimmy - well, here is a story from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution about them
Once again, thanks for your support and understanding - I'll be gone from the WWW for a while today -PLUS, the Xterra was already booked for a Sunday morning drive from Etters to Allentown for The New England Brittany Rescue - and a passenger coming along from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue in Asheville NC - so we'll be gone a good bit on Sunday
REMEMBER: YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
