Octopugs
March 1, 2009

Today a bunch of CTPR volunteers (me included) were involved in an 8 pug transportation effort to move some of our rescues from Mass to NYC. Of course it always snows during our transports, making them more dramatic.

Six of us tag teamed car to car, state to state. The terrific news is all of the pugs (except for one special needs girl) are being placed in new homes. Details to follow on the CTPR blog.

My jeep was packed full to the brim with pugs - 5 crates in all.

After that I jaunted on over to Dutchess County to pick up a surrender, a very sweet female pug. And now due to the weather I am fostering her for the next couple of nights.

My first pug in the house since the Sausage. Weird, but in a good way. Hopefully it won't be too hard to say goodbye. I'm not very good at goodbyes.

I think I'll be okay, she just needs a cool place to crash for a couple days which I am more than happy to provide.

For now I have a snoring little pug girl at my feet, 16 inches of snow on the way and a night of pug snuggling in store. Time to break out the chick flicks. I hope she likes Nights in Rodanthe.

Here is my house guest. She likes to look outside.

Oh Lori you lucky lady
That pug is so cute (but arn't they all)
I keep trying to get J to foster again but they always seem to never leave which is ok with me but she says we got enough now (4)
Good luck on the goodbyes and keep us posted
Thank you so much for your CTPR support.
From your fan Emily the biker pug

I am betting she will love Nights in Rodanthe!

OMG!!! She is sooooo cute!!! I could never foster, I would end up with OctoPug myself! I hope she loves the movie and you get enough Pug smell and snoring to help fill your heart tonight!!! Yea, Lori! :)

Your puggy guest is adorable! She is lucky to have a warm, safe place to bunk!

When I do my dog transport to NY I have between 20 and 30 dogs. It is a 15 hour one-way trip, but I enjoy it. Keep up the good work in giving the pugs a food 'forever home.'

Wow! I hope you have a big van for all those dogs!

Sorry! That should have been 'good' not 'food'.

I am forbidden to foster...cuz I also have a problem with goodbyes! Great job with the transport. It's an amazing thing to do! Glad to hear they will get homes soon! We're raffling stuff to benefit Pixie this weekend!
