Monday MOMday

Furst, a teaser pikh of ME in my wonderful white
Roaring on the way home with Mom - akhtually, she khaught me mid yawn but the roar makes fur a better khaption!
Here are Mom's passengers - Elizabeth
Nicholas pretending he's a Belgian and wielding his paw!
Sugar showing her fine paw akhtion too
Elizabeth in Atlanta Saturday AM - in her traveling attire
Nicholas in his - Mom used these pikhs bekhause she didn't get any of them during their time together - they were FURRY khold - but there are lots and lots of pikhs of them from their Saturday portion of the transport - I'll let Mom explain SOOOOO, time fur Mom to tell about her Sunday drive

Thanks Khyra!

First of all, I must admit to a 'khase of khanine khonfusion' with regards to my passengers! Jake The Rotti was the one going on to Latrobe and Taylor The HuskyShep continued along with me - but I didn't realise this until after I probably babbled about Jake and Taylor in the videos - I guess this shows I've got too much fur built up in my brain from almost three years of transporting - so now for the day's pictures* Off I go*The traditional light - with the SPCA in the backgroundA glimpse of blue and ES3 on the horizonWhilst waiting for my passengers, two guys and a Dexter pulled up in this - they had New York plates - I didn't get a chance to take a pic of the handsome black Lab but I did get to pet him - he was a very nice fella! When I saw Edith pull in, I did warn them dogs would be here soon - and explained this was a transport meeting place - and that was a reason the Lab was so interested in the smells!Due to a mix up in meeting places, I did get to drive Jake to another McD's - but due to another mix up, I got to drive him back to the original spot - he was an awesome guy! He is ten months old and a solid eighty pounds of love! He did have some trepidations at the transfer spots and made us work a bit to get him out - I think he was just making sure he got lots of extra yummy treats!I really was disappointed to not get more time with him - he was just a big teddy bear of a Rotti!Of course, he reminded me of a certain British Rotti pal who is a cousin to Khyra's pal Ginger Jasper. I do think Jake felt the good kharma of the Xterra because he was quite comfy with me - and when we did get him to his next drivers, he had no problems at all getting out of the front seat! Of course, the fact they were both wearing Rotti sweatshirts probably made a good first impression too!Whilst waiting for them - and thinking I'd be passing Taylor along - I got some pics of him He was SO hard to photograph because he was a perpetual motion machine - including bouncing - thank Dog for video! Definitely the best of both breeds going on here! So back on the road to Exit 5A - sorry Jake - just trying to have more time with you!I let Taylor ride shotgun - since his crate would fit on the front seat!Most of Taylor's pics are blindly point and shoot since I couldn't see the front of the crate!Who could ever refuse that face anything? Taylor was very intrigued by the windshield wipers - I needed to use them from time to time - along with some washer fluid due to the roadspray - he watched intently each time!One state closer!*For our friends in Iowa!Snow nose throught the side of the crate facing me - he really liked to work the camera!Yes, squee AND ahhhhhhhh!Sugar's commentary on the day - I shot this at the light after we exited I81 and were finally just about THERE!Our Harrisburg shot!The sky as I crossed the Susquehanna River Mission Accomplished!

Jake met his potential adopter Sunday night and they were immediately smitten so he spent his first night with his furever family that includes another Rotti from the same rescue group!

The other four met their people in the NYC area Sunday evening - all four were thrilled with their new families as well!

Here is the link to the Photobucket Slideshow and here is the link to the album with nine videos - four from Mary and five of mine - there are pictures from the Saturday legs as well!

We did the transport with a shout out dedication to those purrrrrrrty girls Calle and Halle - since it was their sixth Gotcha Day!!!!!!

Thanks again for all the support and for remembering

Wow did you move a lot of furry hearts this weekend. It's tough to pick a favorite because I'm so smitten with that roar picture. Can we see more of this side of you? It's fun! :)

It seems you had a busy day doing the transportation.
Your furry friends are really cute and beautiful but I love Jake the most. Can't tell why, most probably he let me think of my Laura.
Have a great Monday!

I'm glad you finally got your snow, Khyra! It's almost up to the window sills here, so I've gone into hypurrnashun. Mom can never get more than 4 photos at a time on my blog. She is wondering how your Mom does it. (Love that big Rotti!)

Daily Dose of Dogs (aka Cats with your Coffee) said...

Deep gratitude to you for being a transporter - a desperately necessary job. Sounds like if we ever need to get a kitty to the New York area, you might be a connection for us - a last leg of the journey.
Bless you!!

Junior and Orion said...

Teeny, tiny Elizabeth!!! What a cutie!!! Actually, a whole load of cuties!!

OH they are all so cute.. Not sure if Dad told you but Mom and Dad had a Rotti before they got us heeler's. He was Mom's protector too. No salesmen dare come near Mom after she said "No I do not want any"

Another group of handsome/beautiful souls that continue to be, in no small part, because of youse guys. Even as busy as having to go to work hasn't stopped the mom. We are all grateful for her compassion and dedication to the less fortunate. Bravo-Zulu.- WELL DONE!

Sierra Rose said...

Another great group and awesome transport! Your mom is the bestest, Khyra! Love hearing about each passenger, but the sweetest is knowing that forever homes are at the end of the roadtrip. Ah! Have a great week my friends.

Sweet hugs,
Sierra Rose
