First, to understand the length they went to this weekend, a little background. Summit's mom lives in Iowa; Holly's mom lives in Nebraska. I got a little fuzzy on the details of what all was going on, but my very good friend Khyra helped fill me in! (I wanted to make sure she got some credit. Errr... "khyredit". Woo.) The American Mid-West is a very large area, and although all the states I'm mentioning and am going to mention are "connected", I checked with Stormy and these two ladies will have put in over 1400 miles when all is said and done. Woo. (Map to follow, courtesy of Stormy.) [Editor's correction: The whole weekend trip was 2000 miles!!!]
Thunder was in Iowa and a very sweet lady in Colorado Springs, Colorado fell in love with him. She already has a Sibe and two Pomeranians and was ready to add to her pack. If someone could get him to her, she would adopt him. The Mala-moms jumped on it and offered to take the whole trip on themselves! and we're talking one-way of over 700 miles. Woo. When the nice lady in Colorado Springs told her pups they were getting a brother, they started looking for him.
Here's Stormy of Colorado, checking out the window for Thunder! Her pal JoJo is standing by!Then the Mala-moms heard about Skyler. He was in Salina, Kansas. Not really on the way, but sort of. He was heading to Castle Rock, Colorado. They decided to help that little guy, too!
So the Mala-moms met up, got Thunder, and headed to Salina to get Skyler. The two pups did great together, from what we heard. Thunder even helped drive part of the way - check this out!
The Mala-moms got Skyler safely to his destination - and last night dropped Thunder off at his new home in Colorado Springs! He has some adjustments to make, but he was settling in nicely last we heard. They spent the night in Colorado and are driving through HERE on their way home! I just can't wait to meet them! We're all excited and plan to put on quite the show for them! I'm going to do my best to get my fur all over Hollybollybananaboo's mom so Holly can get good sniffies of me! And I'm going to hug BOTH of the moms to say "thank woo" for rescuing Thunder and Skyler!
Here's their itinerary. Quite impressive, isn't it?
We wish both of these boys much, much happiness in their new homes. Their news leashes on life would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of Holly's mom and Summi's mom. For all these dedicated pup-lovers do ... we salute you!
The Army of Four (and especially Dave!)
PS: Maybe I should start looking out the window for them!
Are woo out there yet?!?
