CJ and Bruiser are a-cruising!

Just a quick post to let you know I heard from Tina and that CJ and Bruiser left for New England yesterday! Here is their picture upon departure! Look how healthy they are! And adorable! The million dollar babies!

Baby is doing fine and should be spayed any day now, then she too will be going on the transport north. CJ has a new home already and Bruiser has had many applications.

Tina, please fill us in on how it all went for you. I know it must have been hard seeing them go after all you did for them. I guess having one seems so easy after having had six!

Thanks again to everyone who sent money for all of their vet bills. And one day, we all will meet Deb and Brig of Golden Huggs, as they want to come for a visit and meet all the people involved in the rescue of these pups.

As soon as I get any updates when they go to their forever homes, I will post them!

Safe travels little ones....

they about doubled in size, though these two are still kind of skinny. baby makes up for both!

both pups knew something was up yesterday morning. they were not happy. they somehow knew they were leaving what they had become accustomed to.

they were transferred over at the fairgrounds and were busy looking at people. people who thought they were awful cute and loved them. need more of that in the shelters, not just on the streets.

baby will be spayed on tuesday then i guess mid-march she will be going. we will enjoy her while she is here and happy they are all going to good homes.

sandy, i believe all three pups have forever homes? that was the last i knew that they had approved someone.

btw the lady on the left holding cj is my friend geri, and the lady on the right holding bruiser is glenda of the transport company. she was kind enough to meet me in nashville for the handoff and had everything all prepared for them.

the ramsey family wishes them much luck in their new homes and will think of them all fondly.

Tina, you did very well. What a happy success story for these two pups. They do have a long way to go if they are going to New England. But, it’ll be okay, they travel with their own fur coats. I just hope that they both end up in a home with someone as wonderful as I am, so that they will be spoiled rotten.

Let me be the first to wish each and all a Happy Leap Day! I mean this is a rarity after all. It only comes along once every seven years. Let’s all take a moment and remember back to where we were and what we were doing the last time February had 29 days. Pam, give it up, girl. We know you don’t have a brain left, so you’ll never remember. After all, the simplest things, like unlocking bathroom doors, just elude you now.

Yesterday, we had an ILC (Improvised Leap-year Celebration). O’Malley mentioned ½ price margarita night at Casa Blanca on another post, so Wifey pooh (yes, she wouldn’t let me go without her) and I drove across town to celebrate with her. There were others there, but their names have been changed to protect the innocent. Let’s face it, Leap Year only comes around once every seven years, so we threw down hard. My intention was to rush home, get showered, fire up the Babe Mobile, and get out the door before Wifey pooh got home. But, my plans were foiled, cause she got there before I left.

Even so, it worked out great for me, as the only man amongst four gorgeous females. I was the envy of all that surrounded us. We had a blast, and we closed the place down. No really, we did. The guy had to kick us out so he could lock the door behind us and leave. As we were leaving, O’Malley noticed the Babe Mobile and wanted to see it. But, I told her she better not get too close, as it has a certain effect on beautiful women, and I would have felt bad about leaving Wifey pooh at the restaurant. So, I took Wifey pooh home, tucked her in for the night, kissed her on the forehead, wished her a Happy Leap Year, and told her not to wait another 7 years before she is fun again.

I deem the ILC a success too Dragon. I hope the next time I frequent my favorite restaurant the same guy is not there..haha Next time we will have to pick a place that stays open a little later...and maybe do it on the weekend...and who knows what the possibilities would be for the Dragon and his babe mobile. I did feel its powerful pull when I got a little too close.

I wish more friends could have joined us but there is always next time. I was just glad I lived so close by as it was almost a one eye deal on the way home...what a blast tho. I say we do that more often.

I am SO excited to see the sun!!! My daughter has ball practice OUTSIDE today !! YAY! The doggies, daughters and I plan on being outside romping, pulling weeds, and just enjoying the sunshine.

Dragon, how you cut me to the bone. I cannot believe my big brother who is supposed to love me and take care of me can make such comments about me and hurt my feelings so bad, sniff, sniff!
Everyone at that party knows it wasn't my fault that I got locked in the bathroom. Sandy and The Boss said so too! And as I recall, it wasn't all that easy getting it unlocked from the outside either. Anyway Dragon, you have managed to hurt your poor sisters heart today. I'm just going to get off here, nurse my wounds and try to think of something nice.

Oh, please, Pam—give me a break. Stop being so melodramatic. The only time you need to start worrying about my brotherly love is when I stop making fun of you. If I didn’t care, I wouldn’t bother picking on you. Even though we didn’t grow up together, since Daddy was such an adventurous person, I think we are a lot alike. I know you are just like me, tough as nails, and you are just putting on the mere female act trying to seek out sympathy and pity from others. Believe me that the last thing I would ever want to do is cause hurt to my blood relation. I would rather step on Wifey pooh’s toes than hurt your feelings. I would rather play in traffic than to make you cry. Oh, by the way, Pam—I’m your little brother, remember?? The younger one. Oops, I did it again, didn’t I?? I just can’t stop myself.

Well hush my mouth, I do go on now don't I? But you know how we girly girls are, we just can't help ourselves. But sometimes you men just don't know when to shut up, bless your hearts.
