More than Adoption

Last weekend I was thrilled to be a part of something great- a transport to save a Ridgeback pup from a kill shelter. I got the call late in the week. With my husband already out of town and no time to set up a boarding kennel, I took all three of my dogs with me to go get this pup.

The dogs did great. We rented a mini van, folded down the seats and filled the back w/ dog beds (and a crate for the pup).

We met Tamie, another RRUS foster mom, and her two Ridgies plus her foster dog. It was Ridgeback Heaven on Earth. Amazingly, all the dogs got along. There was a total of 7 dogs- 6 Ridgebacks and 1 Cockapoo (who thinks she is a Ridgeback so please don't tell her anything different)

Over two days, we drove nearly 1000 miles- the dogs never complained, maybe that was because they got their own bed in the hotel.

It was great to be a small part of this dog's trek to forever. He is now in foster care and doing great from all accounts. I hope he will be adopted soon and then his new family can blog about him and keep us all updated.

I was able to take some pictures of the lil' guy. Get your OOOOHs and AAAHHHs ready- here's Tee.

I had the pleasure of fostering Tee and he was a handful of wonderful puppiness. The lucky little guy is in his forever home and doing great with his 2 RR big brothers. Thanks to all who helped this little guy to his happy beginning.
