My good friend Summit's mom rescued a very sweet and calm Siberian Husky, and volunteered to drive him to his new furever home. The thing is, Summi's mummi lives in central Iowa, where Thunder (previously named El Guapo, which means handsome one) was in a shelter, and his new home was in Colorado Springs, Colorado!!! That's 850 miles away! Well, my mom being the puppy lover she is, volunteered to go with Summi's mummi! Mom knew they would have a great time together, and she loves helping save a life!
Thunder was extremely calm and also apparently very tired. He slept the entire way, and only woke up long enough to take his potty breaks. He totally confused the two humans cuz he did NOT act like a typical Siberian! They kept looking for a zipper to his Sibe suit, cuz they figured there must be a cat in there somewhere!
Here is a picture of Thunder in the Jeep. Sleeping.
Then mom gave him her coat to lay his head on, cuz she didn't think the purse was a good pillow.
They stopped for some dinner, and took Thunder for a little potty break. Apparently he really likes the snow, cuz all he wanted to do was lay down in it and get belly rubs!
But, he also looked really comfy in the hotel room, where he continued to sleep all the time. Mom and Summi's mummi said he was the sleepingest Sibe they had ever seen! They figured he hadn't had a good night's rest the whole time in the shelter, so he was catching up.
Mom also got some cute video of Thunder eating his first meal with them.
Notice how gently he takes the food! He has the humans hand feeding him!! He is also spitting out the pieces of dry food that Summi's mummi is trying to feed him! He's got them sucked in already!
In this video, he will only eat the pieces of Natural Balance Lamb roll that is in his bowl! What a smart boy!
Tomorrow, will be part two of the rescue road trip, featuring Skyler!!
(very pround of her mom and Summi's mummi too)
