This is a wolfhound? Are you sure?

It was down to the wire but the transport list from our last post has been filled. Here are three of the pups that Momma will be driving. She'll have one more but not sure which yet.
Dorian - a very small wolfhound mix

Her brother Creed

Lilly - a shepherd mix

We are planning to return to the blogging world but aren't sure when. We have some major changes going on - a blog redesign, possible new site and Momma gave us the devastating news that she is quitting as our unpaid doggy nanny & resource manager and is returning to the corporate world. To hold you over until we return, here is a picture of me practicing one of my napping positions.

Woof ya later,

p.s. Princess Eva prefers to nap in her cave (kennel) which does not allow for napping pics.

Please help!

I know that we have a lot of anonymous readers in MN and Iowa.

We really need your help.

If any of you do rescue transports or would like to donate your time to help save lives by transporting dogs and puppies from Missouri to no-kill shelters in Minnesota , please contact me at and I will connect you with the transport coordinators that I work with. All that you need is a few hours of your time and a vehicle and in return, you get the warm fuzzy feeling that you helped save a life.

We usually don't blog about our volunteer efforts (we save that for Facebook) but there are two large transports for a total of over 50 dogs coming up from Missouri shelters this weekend and there are not enough drivers. If more drivers are not found, these transports will fail and the dogs and puppies will be left in the shelters for at least another week.

Transport driving is very easy and the feeling that you get from helping save these dogs is very rewarding.

Here are some of the transport legs that need to get filled.

Beginning Location - Ending Location - Drive Time - # Miles - Scheduled Transport Time


St Louis, MO to Warrenton, MO 1 hour 3 minutes 57.8 Miles 11:15 AM – 12:20 PM

Warrenton, MO to Columbia, MO 1 hour 5 minutes 69 miles 12:55 PM – 2:00 PM

Columbia, MO to Marshall Junction, MO 48 minutes 51 miles 2:30 PM to 3:20 pm


Olathe, KS - Bethany, MO 1 hour, 25 minutes 90 miles 8:00 am to 10:00 am

Bethany, MO – Des Moines, IA 1 hour 47 minutes 104 miles 10:30 AM to 12:20 PM

Des Moines, IA – Clear Lake, IA 1 hour 43 mins 113 miles 12:50 pm to 2:45 pm

Clear Lake, IAOwatanna, MN 1 hour 4 mins 70 miles 3:15 pm to 4:20 pm

Owatanna, MN - Bloomington/Brooklyn Center 55 minutes 55 miles 4:50 pm to 5:50 pm

(This is the transport leg that I drive and I'll be helping save 2 wolfhound mixes and a shepherd mix but if you have a small vehicle, there are lots of little dogs on this transport too)

If you live along this transport route and can help, please let us know.

Princess Eva, Bricey and their Momma
