Yesterday was another fun day in transporting! First of all, let me say that we were hosting two very cute puppies that were rescued by a friend of ours. He found them dumped out on a back road and took them home. We picked them up on our way home from transporting with the loud Volvo. Our Boxer girl, Cici, wanted to play with them and decided she was too big, so she became their nanny and watched their every move and nosed them around where she thought they shouldn't be. It was very cute to watch. I was watching MASH that evening so we named the pup with the one blue eye, Hawkeye, and his little brother, Radar. While Ed was getting the exhaust fixed, Hawkeye found his forever home with one of the mechanics. We kept Radar one more night and enjoyed his antics and found that he was very content just to be a lapdog. I took a few pics of him and showed my friend who was getting more puppies on Saturday's transport. She quickly decided that Radar could go, too! We were asked to help get Nancy, the Aussie shepherd mix, to the vet for her health certificate. So, I got ready for my mud bath and put on my new rubber boots. The farm is very muddy after a few days of rain. The kennel where Nancy was being kept was in a lower spot and of course she was covered with mud, too. Plus she's a little hyper and liked to jump on me, too! I was splattered and splotched in no time! We got her to the vet and back without incident and put her in another kennel in the carport. She will go on transport today with Tom the Redtick Coon Hound, Radar, the Collie/Husky mix pup, and another Collie mix pup. We had help arranging this transport because of our car problems. We're so thankful we have made so many good friends who are there to help us out! I decided to fill in at work all weekend to get more money for our car repairs. I don't know if I'll stay up till midnight or not!
Happy New Year!!!
UPDATE: Radar went to his new forever home today with a houseful of kids that adore him! He was last seen scampering and playing happily with them in their yard! We're so happy for our little Radar!!!
