TRANSPORT COORDINATOR BETH GOLDOWITZ WRITES..........
Hello again to Sam & Lilly's wonderful transport team!
I'm very happy to report that the big dogs have landed in Phoenix! Sam and Lilly have arrived at Mary's after another smooth day of travel. They had another wonderful day today and now will get a few days of rest before continuing on their journey next weekend.
All of us at NASRN send you all our heartfelt thanks for making this adoption possible. Have I said this before? You all are the very, very best! We often say that we couldn't adopt out the rescue Anatolians without help from our transport volunteers, and that's for sure true in this case. Your wonderful effort has given these dogs the chance for a happy home...together.
One more added thanks...to all the photographers and story-tellers from this weekend, thank you for taking some extra time to send photos and tales from the trip. It's safe to say that the Streets, along with many people online, have enjoyed being able to follow along.
We're already hard at work planning the second transport for next weekend and will be sure to let you all know how the big journey turns out. Thank you all, so very much.
AND A NOTE FROM MARY P., SAM & LILY'S TEMPORARY FOSTER MOM FOR THIS WEEK......
Sam and Lilly arrived at Banner Estrella Hospital at 5PM on the dot this evening. The buzz all day in the emergency room was all about the big dogs passing through on their trip to BC.
By the time the Beretta's pulled in, there was a crowd gathered to greet them!
After some showing off, they loaded into my truck just fine and we headed home after a long day. Ahhhhhhhhhhh.......big yard off leash! Stretch, sniff, mark.....doggie joy......and serious business for ASD's!
Sam found the pantry door ajar while exploring the house, quickly sniffed out a pizzle stick, and devoured it! Way to make yourself at home, big guy!
The dynamic duo are in for the night, fed, pottied, and looking weary. I'll send updates as the week unfolds.
