Betty and a Big Bye Bye Ride

Miss Betty....She was a frightened soul and one that was untrusting of humans. She stayed with us for a total of 4 months. She went to 3 homes and was returned 3 times. She couldn't trust the new families and they weren't willing to give her time. One returned her after only 22 hours. So sad. We were at a loss of what to do. We think the experience of leaving, coming back, leaving, and coming back were really making her fears worse. So momma contacted a good rescue friend in NC and asked if she knew of anything we could do or if they had any families who might be a good match. Well Miss Donna of Carolina Poodle Rescue said that yes they have a big farm and she could meet 20 new people everyday (as a way to overcome her fear of new people) and have a better chance of being adopted there so we set up a transport.

She chose this bag for all of her belongings. A great choice if you ask us as she was from a puppy mill!

We all said our goodbye's

And she made the journey from Ken-Tuck-EE to North Car-O-Line-A. This is one of the drivers who helped get her there.

Now whats amazing is the transport was running 1 hour off schedule due to traffic. So Betty got to the rescue later than expected and Miss Donna was with a potential adopter showing her some of the adoptable poodles and guess what? That potential adopter fell in love with Miss Betty the minute she walked in the doors of Carolina Poodle Rescue. If the transport had run on time she might have missed meeting Miss Sarah (Betty's new mom). So it was meant to be. As of today she has been adopted for 1 month and we get updates on her and she is doing well. And her name is now Charlotte. So fate had a paw in getting Betty adopted. As always we LOVE happy endings!!!

Now we drove Miss Betty to Nashville so we did a wee bit of shopping after we dropped Betty off with the next driver.

Hey what does that sign say?

Way to go Pet Food Center of Clarksville, Tn! They have a "Don't Leave your Pets in Cars" sign. We give them a give high paw for that! They have always had the nicest staff but now they are promoting something that is close to my heart, responsible pet ownership!

Ellie, the toy hound, had a great time checking out all the toy racks!

After all that shopping it was TREAT TIME!

One Greenie please!!!

All in all we got some blue buffalo...

...some rocking new summer wear and...

....a new sun dress.

On the way home we stopped for some tropical sno! A great end to a great day!

  3. Im going to have to try that Blue Buffalo..Heard good things.

    Miss Betty is just like our little Marley. It just takes time...I cant believe someone gave her back after 22 hours!!

    I have a Greay Pyrenees ...Her name is Delila..She was seriously mistreated and abandoned and abused. It took me 4 years of patience....And it was worth all of it to bring her to her natural loving state..

  4. Hooray for Betty..Timmy was returned after 4 hrs. so tell her not to feel too bad about it. Happy dance for the newly named Charlotte!!!
