Monday MOMday

See what that desert heat does to khanines?
More about THAT later in the post - I'll turn it ovFUR to Mom! I finally remembered to take along the awesome sticker our friends over HERE had sent us! Whitney's B&B in the background This Sunday's sky was quite a bit different than last week - this time the blue was in Merryland - I had gotten to Hagerstown at my normal time of around noon - I went in to McD's for something and came out to find The Last Resorts passengers had arrived - I was happy to see them since I hadn't been able to drive the leg since I was doing THIS leg! The handsome Border Collie Mix is Butler
This sweetie is Siddartha
Bailey was wooing the photographer and her assistant
And this absolute beauty is Lacy - I was supposed to have transported her a few weeks ago but she didn't make that one OR the next one - this was third time is a charm for her - she was the most awesome chocolate brown colour with velvet fur - and one of the most loving pups I've encountered
McD's tree had bloomed

Marge wondering if we were there yet -
I told her we hadn't even left the parking lot
A shot of the Hagerstown Airport and the wetlands around it
One step closer!
Marge was a great shotgun - although she snoozed for a good portion of the trip - she found my upper arm to be her favourite pillow - someone in Vermont is getting a great companion - she was a true sweetheart - with nothing but devotion surrounding her
The Knight is on the move again - I think this was the third one I passed
The Power of The Paw in action
Marge's suitcase
Freeman - now Archie - just before departing Harrisburg
Maddie and Stolie
Marge


Sorry - no still pics of Bonnie - actually, I got very few pics of the pups BUT I did get plenty of videos - Freeman was such a bundle of energy that pics would have been a waste of bits - with just a tip of a tail in a shot - PLUS, he and Marge were on a mission to keep tieing me up with their leashes - and since there were three crates in the Xterra, all but one of the pics are of Marge - with Bonnie making an appearance but due to her colouring, she's not completely visible!
See Jack - I told you and The BG there is one of THOSE places in the area where we meet to pass along the pups!


This week's Harrisburg shot
Back down I83 I go


Another mission accomplished! I tucked the Road Dog Tales sticker under the wiper for the pic - and had gotten an extra smile from Cleo's Sunday post - it was the 142nd birthday of the ASPCA - with their ORANGE signature colour!
Our Sunday late afternoon walked presented this photo opp - the younger trees had bloomed - I shot this with the Blackberry - I also have some camera shots that Khyra will share tomorrow -
Khyra doing her best Lassie pose a few days ago -

What a great group of pups - both the ones that got to travel in The Xterra and the ones I encountered whilst waiting!


My run was for Rotts 'n Pups and PMAR ! ! !


We had mentioned the post including more about Jack - WELL, we dedicated the leg to Jack and The TG to show our appreciation for his donating a dollar from the sale of Jack's book this week!


Here is the link to the Photobucket Album with pics of all the pups - I had the transport request email for The Last Resort still in my mail - and lots of videos - the Photobucket Slideshow link is here - I've also added the pictures Mary took on her portion of the transport - she shed quite a few tears when she passed along Freeman - she had been his foster following his surrender so he had REALLY wiggled into her heart - but she knows he's gone to a great FUREVER home - like all the other pups from my transport! I'll be sure to share any updates we receive!

The Photobucket includes a pic of Archie and his new dad - along with his dad's roommates - they all love him! I got another pic I'll save for Tuesday's post!


Maddie is now Shea!


So once again, we have SO much proof that RESCUES ROCK!!!!!!!!!

How very kind that you were thinking of me and Jack on your transport this week! Thank you so very much!

BeadedTail said...

Marge was an adorable co-pilot on the transport but mommy is still goo-goo over Freeman/Archie! His eyes tugged her heartstrings so we hope he has a very loving furever home!

Khyra, we love your Lassie pose!

Tanuki Maxx said...

Very nice post! Marge is a beaut and so are the rest of the fur-iends!
That's a very snazzy sign. I saw a funny and cute sign during our walks last few days, will put it on my blog tomorrow.
Have a great Monday with mom!!

Cheers,
Maxx

We are just so glad that so many are finding loving forever homes. It gives hope that someday maybe every animal will have a safe and nurturing place to call home...thanks.

road-dog-tales said...

OMG, Marge is adorable! We're thrilled to have been able to ride along (kind of:) on this trip! That's so cool that your transport/rescue mobile is the ASPCA's color!

Thanks for stopping by - we're having many technical difficulties and are SOOOOOO behind on visiting.

You've inspired me - When my car is traded up for one that has fewer gremlins, I'd like to help transport. I think this is a wonderful way to help the cause. But that newer car is still pretty far down the road :(

Great pics of course - and thanks for the heads up on the book donations - I will have to hit up Amazon!

Elyse K said...

Those are some sweet, good-looking transport guests! And Khyra, as always, you are very beautiful!
