Shasta's Journey to her new home

Winston and I will be picking up Shasta at 8 a.m. We will be driving her to Shirley 1011's house and then in the morning she starts the long drive to meet her new parents.

Winston has promised to take pics. So she will be posting later. I will nag her for everyone, especially you MBIE.

Won't be long now till she is in her new home.

Thanks again everyone for making this happen.

Shasta has arrived and such a lovely little thing. Of course my "pack" went nuts ....She is much smaller than we thought from the pictures and I'd say there could be some Elkhound there...she is very much like our Shasta. She has settled in now and sleeping...I know she won't be any problem on the road trip tomorrow...such a lovely dog. I am so thankful she has found a forever home.

We need every stage of the journey documented...for MBIE's scrapbook, of course. Not that we're nosy or anything

Part 1 of Shasta's Journey

Well we picked up this sweet little pupper that I thought was gonna be the average GSD size only to find this petite little lady! What a gem she is! she got in the van and sat down and never made a peep! nothing, notta couldnt beleive it! she has WONDERFUL travel abilities!

We arranged at one of her guardian angels houses to be met with a gang of doggies! Shirley1011 you have the most beautiful doggies! They all had to check out Shasta and see who the new gal was! she wasnt real happy about meeting them all at once but I think she liked them all just the same!

Although our time was very limited she stole a ppice of my heart! she appears to be a very gentle soul who takes whatever you seem to throw at her!

MBIE I honestly think you will be very pleased after taking this little one site unseen! she is a keeper!

Lastly my partner in crime Sylvie! Couldnt have done it without out you answering the call!!!!

Well on to the pics...I didnt get alot of pictures of Shasta but there are a few and also I will sneak a few in of Shirley1011's gang!

Sylvie and I have handed the journey over to Shirley who will deliver miss Shasta to her next leg of the journey and then on to her forever home!

Once again thank you so very much Shirley for your help in arranging this and your wonderful hospitality....and MBIE Hugs my friend and thank you for saving Shasta's life! You and you hubby will be reapid tenfold!

Great!! Now I am gonna be sobbing when I go check my babies!!
What a gorgeous girl she is! I can't understand the family not taking her and letting her live out the rest of her years in peace. But that's fine. She will have a wonderful new family very soon.
You ladies are amazing human beings! To you all for all you are doing to get Shasta to her new home. Although she looks like she would be just fine at Shirley's home too! Beautiful house!! Love the windows.
MBIE - You are one lucky lady. Not to mention pretty darned wonderful for taking on this gal.

Thank you everyone that has made this journey possible. I will sleep good tonight, knowing that one is on her way to a loving home.
