Monday MOMday

But FurstSanta's Elf Khousin Merdie
Khousin Harley Elf
Callie now Kelly sent me this Saturday afternoon as she announced
She's home FUREVER!!!

Don't the smiles woof it all?


As I mentioned on Sunday's post, one of the runs would be dedikhated to this handsome fella


PLUS, whilst Mom waited in Merryland, she saw his FB post about Sunday being HIS FURST GOTCHA DAY - how khool is that?

Here is the link to the pawesome group that helped him get that sekhond chance!

SO, Happy HOWLidays to Corbin from Khousins Merdie and Harley - AND me too!

Just wait until you see the Pibbles that hope to have the same pawesome furever home as woo do thanks to the great humans associated with Pibbles & More

I'm turning this ovFUR to Mom now!
******A touch after 7:15 Sunday AM

One of the Brittany passengers - Fancy - and her blue dolphin PillowPet -she was a sweetie - a bit scared - she's around 4 years old and now being fostered in NH -

As the picture was snapped, some pup moved!
Molly watching what is behind her - she's also thought to be 4 - she's now in RI
Molly was quite good at giving THE LOOK - she curled up in the back corner behind my side - Mike hardly budged from the section behind the seats - I really don't think he napped - he travelled with Fancy and The Blue Dolphin to NH -
Fancy and Friend

These three were transported for New England Brittany Rescue

Here is their Photobucket Album with two videos - and their slideshow - with assorted pics of them and what they saw along the way from Etters to their Allentown area meeting spot -

Just a few throws of the tennis ball from the Wawa we met at is the Samuel Adams Brewery for the East Coast - I steered The Xterra in that direction to snag a pic for two wild and crazy dog moms belonging to Tula and Norwood

Then it was time to head back I78 to I81 for a trek to Hagerstown
Just below Shippensburg I saw a trailer carrying polar bears
Here's Bandit - Caleb is in the back
George yawned HI!
He was an absolute doll!!! He'll be at his forever home later today
Yes it did!
He's five months old - with awesome eyes - and a great personality too!
Half the trip North he snoozed here - with the other portion curled on the seat
He was a difficult one to capture like this because he just wanted to be with you -
Caleb - sorry, didn't get too many pics of him - I do have him in the videos - it was just above freezing and the precious cargo was a bit chilly so I didn't keep them out too long - I actually did leave The Xterra running to help keep Amber's Dears warm whilst 'the big dogs' were playing
Three of the 'deers' - the one reindeer NOT represented in the naming was Dasher - there were 6 males and 2 females - and at only two months old, we did not get them out enroute -
Their mom Amber is four years old - and is still South - she needs to have surgery for cataracts so she'll stay there for the time being

Bandit said THANKS just before leaving Harrisburg - and he wanted to say the last two brothers are NOW AVAILABLE via Pibbles & More's Petfinder Site - look for Starsky and Hutch - they are black furry versions of Butch and Bandit and Tugger and Caleb - oh my!

Caleb and Bandit met their furever families Sunday afternoon - they were as thrilled with them as Tugger and Butch's peoples were two weeks ago! Having driven all four, I have NO doubts about that - they were cute and friendly! Both Caleb and Bandit kept taking in EVERYTHING in the air around them - they looked to the horizon and to the sky - I don't think they knew what to make of it BUT they KNEW they LIKED it!
And we have come full circle on the day - this is around 2:45pm - this is the side of the traffic light you don't usually see - Khyra's B&B is to the left - you usually see it on the right

Another mission accomplished - or in the case, MISSIONS!

Here is the Photobucket album link for this one with videos; here is the slideshow - again, with interesting pics from the trip - The Susquehanna had a good bit of ice on it in spots - that made for some interesting textures -
I've also included the pictures that were sent along with the transport's runsheets and some pics&videos from Saturday's drivers!
It was also an amazing day for raptors - I should have kept count but didn't - I believe I saw close to three dozen - on the ground - in the trees - on utility poles - and the one I went WOW for the most was one hovering in the air as it sized up its meal - what a sight to see!

Thanks again for all the support and kind words!

Rescues Rock!

Hugz&Khysses From Khyra's Khorner

P.S. Of course, since I was gone much of Sunday - and then occupied by assembling the two Photobuckets and this post - the blog visits are on the delayed status - we'll get through them - just might not get to comment on all


Life With Dogs said...

Another wonderful weekend of work for the furkids - but I am amazed you were able to pry yourself away from Samuel Adams. You are truly an angel. :)

Chewy said...

Merdie looks so adorable in the santa hat! You are so kind to help with the dogs!


Kari in Alaska said...

we really want george!


BeadedTail said...

MERDIE!!!! Wish Santa's Elf Merdie could come visit us! We'd make sure Harley and you come too Khyra!

We're so happy to see all the smiles in Kelly's new furever family!

The transports are all so adorable! Once again those eyes always get to us! We love hearing happy endings too.

Amy / Layla the Malamute said...

I LOVE Merdie & Harley's pictures! They're so good to hold the hats on their heads.

I love the Polar Bear trailer; they're one of my favorite animals.

I didn't know that they had a Sam Adams brewery out here! I'll have to see if they allow tours. That's my dad's favorite domestic beer.

Jack & Moo said...

Merdie & Harley makes a darn good-lookin elves, they can pull off wearing that stupid hat & still look good - now that's talent!

What an adorable batch of pups! And such happy news that Kelly has a furever home - woo-hoo!

Golden Samantha said...

Oh my DOG!!! You got so much donedonedone! What a buncha travelin'!!! So many puppers, so many states - you ARE the underground RR!!! It is truly incredible how many skies, meetings of other transports/doggehs and different weathers you go through to give these pups a fresh chance at new life/digs. Incredible. Merdie: you are indeed a Grrrrreat Santa helper!
Hugs xoxoxo

Ellen Whyte said...

Corbin looks like an intellectual with that half frown...

JacksDad said...

How do you keep all the dog hair off your dash? Mine looks like it's covered in dog fur!

What a great weekend you had. I know Santa is going to be furry impressed with how good you have been this year.

Unknown said...

I love those big Elves, they are so adorable in that little red hat! Also glad that so many furfriends have found their furever homes and enjoy their holidays too!
Got to hop over to Corbin to see what he's up to now!

Huskee and Hershey said...

That's a really cute pic of Merdie with Santa's hat!

Those puppies are sooooo cute.. we hope that they all go to good homes before Christmas so that they can spend the holiday with loving families.

Dexter said...

Yuh, one of Momma's friends has a wee little Brit Knee Spaniel dog from that very same organization. She came all the way from Tenny Sea or some such.

That sure was a full day for your DOH. I hope she gets her rest.


Inky and Molly said...

Merry xmas 2 u, mum, merdie and the rest of the family. Thank you for making the world a better place!

Maxmom said...

Hey there Khyra and Phyll

It's so heartwarming to see all the re-homing that's happening during this festive season! The Doggie angels seem to be in full swing. What a lovely looking brood of poochies which you transported. You really are amazing!

If I don't get another opportunity, please may I take this moment to wish you all a wonderful, peaceful and joyous Christmas. You are such amazing cyber-buddies and I am grateful!

By the way...I really enjoyed the decorations in yesterday's post.

Sending lotsaluv

Yas said...

Another pawsome post with pawsome passenger pics!!
So much good news! Hope Santa brings what all the pups wish for!


D.K. Wall said...

Harley is looking way too happy in that hat, though Merdie is giving the proper level of stink eye.

Gus said...

Oh my, those puppies are truly dears! And of course, muzzer loves the brittanies. I mean, she cannot EVER volunteer for dog stuff unless she takes me along to keep her from pupnapping.


houndstooth said...

Looks like another successful weekend of bringing pups closer to their perfect places! Do me a favor and take a nap today, though!


Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Now that was an XTerra full of of precious cargo! Thanks DOG that khyra allows you to use her XTerra and for you and all you do! What a weekend!

Merdie and Harley are perfect elves!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Sierra Rose said...

What fantastic transport cutie pies! And happy endings with forever homes :)
Love the santa hats! Did Harley really sit still for that photo?

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

KT and Easton said...

You sure get to see a lot of pawsome dogs when you transport. Its bittersweet that they are homeless/not wanted, but at the same time they are bound for better times, generous fosters and best of all - maybe a furever home. Rescue Rocks indeed.

I can see why you were so taken by George.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

What a wonderful transport!! All of the dogs and cute puppies!! Another transport went well which is excellent!!! We love the pictures of Merdie in his Christmas hat and it was nice to see Kelly who has the same tail as I do!! Rescue rock!!! Truly an angel! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Daisy Dog said...

Oh so cool, everyone safe in thier new homes.We have a special place in our hearts for Brittainy's as mom had one growing up.

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

What a bunch of adorable transport puppies!!! We are so glad they are all safe and some of them have furever homes!!! Way to go!!

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Oh and how could we almost forget! What cute elves Santa has!!!

Chris and Ricky said...

Glad you had a safe and successful Sunday! Lots of very cute passengers!

Merdie and Harley are darling in their elf hats!

Anna the GSD said...

I love the GOLDEN rain-deers!! Santa needs those!!

Looks like a great trip with lots of yawns! It's easy to sleep when you know someone cares for you! Awesome job!

Stella said...

Cousin Merdie looks great in her Santa hat, she takes the job seriously as she should.

Congrats on your Rescue Runs! I hope none of them get off on the wrong foot by eating the Christmas tree, but I am sure you told them that was a no-no!

Kisses and Merry Christmas,


Anne-Kathrine said...

Merdie looks adorable with her santa hat on :)

Oh all the babies are adorable. I'd sooo puppynap George :) Thank you for helping these babies along on their journey :)

Remington said...

Molly the Airedale said...

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Big Sloppy Kisses

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

What a wondeful happy post. I think it was a wonderful weekend you had. I dont think there will ever be enough words to thank you for all you do. Those sweet faces say it all I think. They are happy and safe.. Hugs GJ xx

Pat Wahler said...

It certainly looks like the passengers enjoyed the ride! So glad the transport went well.


Sagira said...

Love the santa hat photos. So cute!

You have the cutest passengers every trip. :)

Teddy Westlife said...

Great work again, Khyra's mum!

Corbin said...

Oh Khyra! It was so cool that your transport was on my 1 year gotcha day! AND! My mom's first dog was a Brittney Spaniel! His name was Brandy and she had him from the day she was born until she was 13 when he died (he was 15!) She teared right up when she saw those rescues! And I love all the pitties! That George is jus too handsome for words! Thanks again for dedicating this to me! It means a lot, especially because that's how my new foster sister got to NY from TN!
Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Oooh! Merdie looks like the most awesomest elf! I'm sure she's the one who talked to Santa and gave us all this snow as an early Christmas present! Mom has no idea how your Mom does the transports - Mom would do it once and come home with a car full of doggies that she wouldn't want to give up - cuties, every single one of them!

Lovely pictures!
Wonderful weekend You have!

Thor and Jack said...

Merdie and Harley look so cute with Santa´s hat! Another great weekend! Those pups are all adorable!

Danielle said...

Awwww! Merdie is so cute with her hat on. My human bean would try to put a hat on me, but it wouldn't stay on for more than a few miliseconds!

White Dog Blog said...

The elves are very cute and a wonderful reminder that you make Christmas miracles happen for rescue pups all year round! Thank you for giving so much!

Please stop by my blog, dear friend, on Tues. and Wed. to help me celebrate my 2000 post and my 6th Barkday! I am having a comment-a-thon to benefit canine cancer research and would love for you to leave me a lot of comments. Spread the word!

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Merdie looks so cute in the red hat. And do you suppose there really was polar bears in that truck, and were they my friends??
We like the pink outfit on one of your passengers!

Anonymous said...

Ohmidogness, Khousins Merdie and Harley are some of the cutest elves EVER! And I'm just waggling all over that Callie/Kelley is in her furever home!

As always, you had the Most Adorable passengers. It always makes my heart happy to know they're heading to better lives.

Wiggles & Wags,

Elyse K said...

Can I just say, hello and WOW! I want to go back and look more closely at all these photos and the text. But I also wanted to post. WOW <3!

Oh, I almost forgot - hello, beautiful Khyra and hello, khousins Merdie and Harley!

Your admiring fan,

ForPetsSake said...

I love reading your blog. I'm so thankful there are people that do the work you do. Those kiddos are safe because of YOU!! What an amazing feeling!
And yes, the raptors are amazing - I can't help but stare at them as I'm driving about. Surely not the safest thing to do ;)

Olive said...

Wow you guys are very busy!! There are some cute doggies there :)

Tail Wags from me!!


Tweedles -- that's me said...

I have just seen the cutest little elves on the face of this earth,, right here, on this bloggy..
I cannot stop looking at all the cuteness.. and then the photobucket had so much happiness..
This was like the incredible journey with a happy ending

Teddy Bear said...

Look at all those cuties! We love Merdie in Santa's hat.:)

The Oceanside Animals said...

Your mom's car is like a shrine to cuteness. When she trades it in whoever gets it will probably constantly be seeing ghostly images of puppies in the mirrors.

Ms. ~K said...

Another cargo of love!
Thank you for all you do!

Hi Khyra -

Merdie makes a great elf in the Santa hat. But we really like the picture of Kelly and her family and how happy they look.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
