This morning we were up early, fed the dogs and got them out. After breakfast and another quick outing for our dogs, we headed off to Lowes to meet someone.
There in Lowes parking lot we found Miss Bessie and the first driver of the day. They said goodbye to each other and Bessie climbed in our car and we started on the second leg of her trip.
Miss Bessie is a ten year old Basset Hound who is on her way to a retirement home for Bassets in Maryland. She was rescued from a kennel run by an elderly lady who can no longer care for the dogs.
Her first driver reported that Bessie sang for most of the trip. Her words were, " she has quite a voice and isn't afraid to use it."
She greeted us with a chorus of barks and howls.
I guess her sing along tired her out, so she curled up in the back seat and slept for most of the 110 mile trip.
She awoke refreshed and ready for a snack.
After a few biscuits and a drink of water, she was ready to leave with her next chauffeurs.
We said our goodbyes and wished her well in her new home.
Then we moved her belongings from our car to theirs...
...loaded her and she was on her way.
Bessie will arrive at House of Puddles in Frederick, Maryland tomorrow evening. It's nice to realize that 14 different individuals or couples are giving up part of their weekend to help this old girl. Good luck in retirement, Bessie.
