Pointers from Oz

My mom is a transporter. Not 'Beam me up Scottie' type because there were no scotties on this trip but click-your-sparkly-red-sneaker-heels-type to transport the Pointers from Oz.

These 4 pointers traveled by relay on Friday from shelters & fosters homes in southern Ga. to Atlanta and spent the night. They left early afternoon on Sat. My mom picked them up north of Atlanta and drove to mid-TN where she met the next relay human. The rescued doggies will spend the night in Oak Ridge then travel to Michigan on Sunday. So far, everything has worked very well.

As per usual, my mom who likes to talktalktalk to people blahblahblah only got a couple pictures. She almost forgot to transfer the paperwork. Whenever she is transfering dogs people in the parking lot come up and ask about the dogs and she tells them...and tells them...and....

Anyroad, here are the doggies:

Derek who was very good on the trip.

Augustus who did NOT like River but my mom told him to LAY DOWN and he listened.

Sherry, despite her recent operation, was a wild child. She chewed up everything she could get her snout into.
This is River. This is why my mom came out of transport retirement to drive--because of his name! He has a bad cherry eye but it will be fixed when he's neutered. When he wasn't bothering Sherry he was a very sweet dog. And pointers have such soft, downy fur.

Derek & Augustus getting ready to be walked. Notice TWO leashes. We don't take chances.

And, of course, I had to sniff all the new doggie smells when my mom got home!

But, Mom, I'm still your number one baby boy, aren't I?

Oh, yeah!

10 sniff-Arooos:
