2 Thumbs Up for Siskel and Ebert

My favorite road trip of all...is a rescue.
Left the house, yesterday, at 5am to pick up Siskel and Ebert
These two are heading to their foster homes.
The eyes always...always get to me.
Ebert tried so hard to get me to pet him. He wanted to give me kisses. We're not allowed to get them out of, or open their crates, so I could only pet him with a couple of fingers.
 Look at my Lucy's picture...a happy girl, then look at these lil guys and tell me that they don't know fear, don't know what love is...
ommmm

Oh my god, my heart is breaking... I hope their new homes heap love on them until the Twelfth of Never...

Oh yes, they do know love and fear. The eyes always get to me, too. I hope these two sweeties get a forever home soon.

Nice to find them new homes rather than the needle

Teresa E. says her pictures will not enlarge like they used to. Is this what happened to yours as well. If so I'm sure the same is headed my way. This is sooo important but I guess to not enough though.

Teresa, They will get good homes now that they are in the Colonel Potter Cairn Rescue system. We love all dogs but are especially fond (to the point of love) our Cairns.

Martha, Oooh the eyes of these little guys just break my heart. They will have to stay a minimum of 30 days with their foster moms. She logs their habits and what training is necessary (are they housebroken? ok with kids? ok with cats? etc) They do a wonderful job.

Steve...I hate, hate, hate kill shelters. Did I say I hate them???

Fly, No, I'm processing pics thru picasa mail. It takes forever to download pics if I don't. Also they are so big, take up too many gigs or something like that and Blogger notified me that I'd have to start paying some kind of a fee??? Don't want fees. If there is a pic you'd like to see better, let me know and I'll get it to you.

Lisa, Thanks Lisa, I'm just a transporter. I love doing it!!! There are so many volunteers in our group. A wonderful group... Anyway, they always need transporters. Last time it took 7 of us to move the dog from southern Missouri to Minnesota. I feel so good afterwards. When you look at those little eyes...makes it all worth it.

What a wonderful job you have volunteered for and I so admire you being able to stick to the rules. Not sure I could. Especially seeing those faces that so need reassurance.
I hope they only know severe spoiling in the future.

Manzanita said...

Soon they will find love and the eyes will show that. You are doing such an act of love by transporting these little guys to new homes. But, don't the little ones need potty breaks?

turquoisemoon said...

Patti, I like that "severe spoiling". They're so scared that if you took them out of the kennel, they might run...not a good/safe thing. I pet with my fingers, rub their little muzzles. Also, we're on a pretty tight schedule.

Manzanita, So far I haven't heard any whining or tell tail (pun intended) signs of needing a potty break. CPCR post pics of them when they finally go to their forever home...Huge difference! Amazing what a little love can do.
