A very special Puggy Road Trip!

Happy Sunday everyone!!!

Mom had a very cool experience yesterday. She did her FIRST Pug transport and helped 4 darling puppy-mill puggies from Kentucky get to their destination of Vermont to live with some nice foster families (and eventually forever homes!) with Green Mountain Pug Rescue!

Mom drove Leg 2 (out of 15!) to get the sweet puggers started on their long trip to Vermont! Here are a few pics...

Mom *THINKS* this is Amy Pug.

She was a MAJOR wiggleworm and wiggled out of her harness and ran butt-nekkid through the McDonalds parking lot!

Amy had what could have been a twin sister named Carly Pug (mom can't remember which was which!). She was a bit less wiggly...maybe downgraded to "squirley"

Yeah...mom is rockin the sexy "just rolled out of bed" look. Eeesh.

This poor guy is Rico (yes...as in Suave!)Pug.

He grunted a lot and seemed kind of irritated with the whole deal (who could blame him really?). He was missing the hair on his tail and bottom and seemed almost relieved for a nice road trip to a much better life!


This little sweetie is Dustin Pug. Mom almost "hijacked" the transport back to our house because of this guy.

His crate was in the front seat and he sat waaay over against the edge next to mom and stared at her with his tail wagging for the WHOLE trip...like this...

She drove with one hand in between the bars and gave him ear and chin scratchies the whole way.


Mom met a nice lady named Myla from Terre Haute and Amy and her husband from KPR and got them all ready to go....

A quick harness change....

All loaded up and ready to go!


Don't worry...we didn't forget the road trip snacks!


The puggers were safely delivered to a nice lady named Marie in Richmond, IN and we understand they are almost at their final destination in Vermont this afternoon!

When Mom got home....she smelled funny and I could TOTALLY tell she had been CHEATING on me (again!)

I'll let it slide this time since it was for the good of PugKind!!!!

Enjoy your journey Amy, Carly, Dustin and Rico! Mom says she's glad she got to share a little bit of time and love with you yesterday!

Happy Sunday!

Awww what cute little puggers!! And you did a wonderful thing for pugkind, so yes, Salinger should let you off the hook for the "other pug" smells on your clothes.

Mom and Dad sometimes drive other greyhounds to help get to their forever homes. I've never been able to go with them on these journeys, but I hear they're quite exciting! Mom said Amy might have gotten lost accidentally in our van at the drop off.

P.S. Mom also said these things always seem to be at the butt crack of dawn when nobody wants to be photographed!

Awwww Sal, we're uber proud of your mom. It brings a tear to mom's eye thinkin' about those precious babies livin' in a puppy mill. Thank Pugness they made their way out and on to a better life. Your mom rocks!

Now do her a favor and don't snarf her pant legs into your schnoz.

Loves ya,

What a great job your Mom did! And it's not cheating when you're helping save lives. :)

Pee.S. My Mommy said she would have hijacked Dustin too!

Pearl said...

Oh Sal, what a bunch of cuties! Bless your sweet Mom for transporting them!

My momma always thinks the hardest part about transporting is that she doesn't get enough time to snuggle the puggies! She always wants to pull over and just love on them!

Salinger;

Your Mommy cheated on your for the best reason ever, helping those puppymill puggies get to their safe forever homes. How awesome! I was been looking at lots of the pictures and videos of them on FB, wish I could have one of the little cuties myself.

Twinkietinydog said...

Congratulations on the FIRST transport!!! We love you and we thank you for doing that :) The video was hilarious. Sounds like your mom has tendencies similar to mine, Salinger. One of these days she'll be bringing home one of the transports...

Hey Sal! Maybe next time you can go with your mom on a transport. That way it won't really be like cheating on you since you'll be there.

Your mom is the only chick around that can rock that just rolled out of bed look. I place a bag over my mom's head when she tries to leave the house after rolling out of bed. Sheesh!

Ah Sal, don't be jealous. my mom would have totally snatch the little guy Dustin! Now you've got mom all to yourself. BTW, what's gonna happen after the big nuptuals? Won't mom be lonely if you with your pugsband more often?

Love
Gen & the Foo
