Monday MOMday

Auntie Di sent us this - how khute!
As promised, some of ME
Before I let Mom paw about Sunday's passengers!

Of khourse, I might have given all of woo a Valentines Day gift a little later in the post!
Okay Mom, it is all yours!
Thanks Khyra!
Another run for the good luck charm
Heading North on I83 - with ES3 just on the horizon! I still smile each time I pass it knowing all the other times I had - and never expected to be working there! BTW, some have asked how it is going - I'm enjoying it - and learning - and feeling more comfortable doing all of the things required of the job - I really like the 4 ten hour days that enable me to be off Sunday Monday and Tuesday!
I stopped for gas and coffee - saw this and thought of some Bad Sport Pal of ours!
Merryland is just a blink away
Meet Jan
She's a Feist Mix
She and the other pups were already at McD's when I arrived -
There is a video of her in the Photobucket showing off her Feistness!
Beth and Betty
Betty and Beth
Happy as we were getting ready to depart for Harrisburg
Bamba checking out the view before he settled in for the 75 miles
My shotgun passenger - if I said he was awesome, it would be an understatement!
One state closer for the transport that started in GA and finished in NJ and NY!
Happy was a great passenger - quite comfy resting his head on much of the Xterra AND the driver!
All of the pics of Bamba taken enroute to Harrisburg look like this - he did a great job guarding Beth and Betty!
Happy helped this shot! I had gone for the paw and he added some tongue!
Not bad for having been abandoned at one point - he's thought to be just short of a year old - his teeth surely looked like it
I thought this one kind of summed up the transport!
Bamba all rested up! Good thing as he was meeting his furever family in a few hours after this picture! He's listed on the runsheet as 4 or 5 years old - and was a great passenger - he would have been a great shotgun as well but Happy called it first!
Happy was checking out the very tasty duck cherry molasses parmesan treats!
Our Harrisburg shot
As we say each week, mission accomplished!

What a great group of travellers - as I said in one of the videos, I barely knew there were others in the vehicle besides Happy - Bamba did truly sleep almost the entire way - and the crated girls were so good!

The run was the combined efforts of three rescues - A Pathway to Hope - Charlie's Angels Animal Rescue - and The Silver Lining for Pit Bulls

The transport split off from Harrisburg since Tayla, Beth, and Betty were headed to Buffalo and Bamba, Happy, and Jan to NJ - and YES, Bradley was adopted by the foster - I know the rescue world is full of Foster Failures!

There are quite a number of pics in the Photobucket - 87000 or so of them of Happy - sorry, I couldn't help myself - plus, riding shotgun gave him the most camera time - of course, there are videos - and some pics sent from another driver - and even some pics from Saturday's leg with the two redheads together in Charlotte - that is where Summer departed the transport to head to her foster for her heartworm treatment - we got word Sunday night she had settled in well AND now has a family in NJ waiting for her when her treatment has been completed!

We did the transport in honour of A Pathway to Hope AND in particular, Rocky! His first heartworm treatment went well last Monday - so we'll be keeping him in our thoughts until it is completed and he's free and clear of those nasty nasty invaders! We had a special benefactor paw us some driving dollars - we were very touched and HAPPY to have them! I did forward the passenger manifest for them to see the lucky dogs benefiting from their kindness - they gave us the paws up of approval!

Here is the link to the Photobucket Album with seven videos - AND here is the link to the slideshow which includes some nice sky shots - this transport leg was two hours earlier than my usual Hagerstown to Harrisburg leg so I got to see a different kind of sky!

So, as we say: RESCUES ROCK!

Khyra wanted me to thank those of you that sent her some very pawesome Valentines AND she wanted me to share this one with you as HER Valentines Gift!

Chrissie said...

Happy Valentines Day, Khyra-Face,you BeWOOOOOOtiful girl!

You know, it always amazes me to see the Xterra so full of hopeful pups and dogs and peace seems to reign. I've never read a trip report, that I remember, where the passengers fought or growled or otherwise displayed unsocial behavior. Must be that Sibe Serenity!

Yay for another mission accomplished!
