Beam me up! More transporting

Another Saturday transport for my mom. This time it was 18 dogs going 800 miles using 37 volunteer drivers to transport them. It makes her feel good so I said it was okay with me. She promised to be back in time to enjoy the sun with us.

She carried three doggies in her Honda. This is Franny the bluetick beagle/doxie. She drooled a lot in the car but was a sweet dog.
My mom also drove Lovey-Dovey the black lab/newf and Clem the red heeler mix. All most excellent dogs according to my mom.

The other car took this girl (Shelly) and 3 others. Isn't she pretty? Her story is very sad though. She came into a shelter starving and pregnant. All her puppies died but one and she had no milk to give so the puppy was bottlefed. She was so good on the trip and such a sweet doggie that everyone fell in love with her. The puppy traveled in a shoebox with a towel.
Shelly looks angelic here. My mom can't believe she got such a good shot with her cheap camera. I think I would love playing with this girl.

Leaving the Scenic City heading west over a lake, over the mountains.

It was a pretty sunny day. Can you believe it was 70 degrees? Dottie and I are doing synchronized sniffing. We're pretty good, actually.

I'm glad my mom is home with us now. She is feeling much better and spent the rest of the day outside with us.

Oh my gosh! A Bluetick-Beagle? What a crazy mix. I've never seen one before but he looks like a cutie-pa-tootie.
