Rescue Road Trip Part 2

Ok, where did I leave off? Ah, yes, the rescue trip!!

Well, along with the catish (or Khatish) Thunder, mom and Summi's mummi also had the great luck to pick up a 6 month old Sibe named Skyler, who was almost sent to the Rainbow Bridge for biting someone. Luckily for him, some extremely nice people in southeastern Kansas realized that because he was so young, had been stray, and seemed rather skittish and fearful, that all he needed was some love, socialization and rehabilitation. So, they rescued him, and were then looking for transport to Colorado. Wow, what a coincidence, mom and Summi's mummi were heading just that way!! Therefore, they volunteered to swing down to Salina Kansas and pick him up on their way to Colorado Springs!

Here are a few pics of Skyler when he was picked up.

Doesn't he look just like Demon, from Snow Dogs???

Here he is smiling, cuz he knows he is being saved by two people who are very happy to have given him the chance to live a long and happy life in a loving furever home.

He was a little skittish at first, and didn't like to have his head touched. Both the moms were very gentle with him, and he did allow chin scratches.

Then it was discovered that he really liked Thunder!!! They got along GREAT! Here are some video's of them playing. Or, I guess I should say, Skyler wanting to play, and Thunder being......well......his usual "cat" self.

Thunder is the one laying down, in case you couldn't tell!! Ha woo woo woo!!!

They had such a good time together! And Skyler really warmed up to the moms! Before the end of the trip my mom was giving him smooches!!! He really came out of his shell, and we know he is going to be a great puppy for someone very soon. He is going to a great home that has other Sibes, and can teach him everything he needs to know about being a good boy! The moms were very happy to meet Ralph, who will be his rehabilitator/foster home. They could tell just from talking to him, that he will do a great job with sweet, adorable Skyler.

Well, I'm off to see where my dinner is. Stay tuned for Part 3!!

(very proud of the moms)

Oh, Skyler is such a funny baby! He's just a couple months younger than me, and my mom is so sad that he had been mistreated and forced to protect himself. We can't imagine being so young, and afraid. We are so glad he was saved!!!!

And the Cat in a Sibe Suit is... Well, I think you guys are right about him.

Here, kitty kitty Thunder, here kitty!!!!!

I wanna feel snow on MY tummy though. Sniff. Not fair. Sigh.

Mom says, "At least we had a lovely summer for you, Maddox! Be grateful!" And I am. I guess.

Skyler is so handsome! Give your mom another smoochie for me for rescuing him, OK?
Hmm... Thunder does seem rather ... feline. Since we have a Lab in a Sibe suit here, there's no reason he couldn't really be a Kitty in a Sibe suit! Ha roo roo roo!
Tail wags,

I had to laugh when you're mom had to clarify "Kat" versus "cat"! Skylar is very cute. And if you think he looks like Demon, then he is definitely cute because lots of people tell me that I look like Demon too!


The Brat Pack said...

He's a complete and total doll! (uh, Mom's words and not mine) What a great story...the moms are our heroes!


Amici said...

That is so cute that Thunder likes to play more on the ground. He did look like he had a good time with Skyler! Your Mom and the others did such a wonderful thing! This was a very heart warming post to read. :)
