DRNA transport

MOM was part of a transport effort to get two DRNA dachsies, the beautiful Daisy and the feisty Gunner, from their foster home in Illinois to their furrever homes in NJ (Daisy) and Connecticut (Gunner). Both dachsies were brought here to our home, and MOm had to drive them 87 thousand miles to Pennsylvania, to the DRNA rep, Dona. Then she had to drive them to her home, where Daisy's Mom and Dad picked them up late last night and drove all night back to NJ. They were supposed to pick them up today, letting Daisy and Gunner get a good night's sleep, but they could not stand the idea of spending one more day dachshund free!!! Could you? This was Mom 's first transport, and we think she did fine. She had to leave us home, but Gunner and Daisy met us first and they slept in the car on the trip to PA>

Daisy is a 4 year old BLack and Tan piebald longhair, and Gunner is a red smooth one year old kisser. Their pictures are still up at DRNA so hurry for a look at these beauties.

Congratulations on your furst ever
TransPAWT. That is soooo kind and generous of you to let your mom drive the two dachsunds to their new home. Butt then... that is just the way you guys are!!! I hope you let her do it again.

I'm Back!! I just wanted to say that after reading this post... I am even MORE glad that I thought to ask you about DRNA, before I had chosen DROH for my wedding thingy. DROH is WONDERFUL... butt somehow... I'm thinkin' this decision was just meant to be. I had shivers when the girrrls told me that they have actually donated to DRNA in the past. Freaky. Right????

That sound like a long drive, Thanks for helping those doggies get to their forever homes. My mom has driven from NH to NC a few times to pick up foster dogs.

We are going to let Mom and Dad do this again. Ginger and Chip came from DRNA and we are sharing our furrever home with Thai and Taz, who we think are going to stay furrever with us!!! MOm and Dad are looking forward to taking us and showing us off at the North East Ohio Dachshund picnic next month.
