Uno, Dos, Tres, Cuatro, Cinco, Seis

This morning Rob and I got up early and met K in Walmart's parking lot. She had something in her car that we transferred to ours. Six Chihuahuas. That's right six of them.

The little guys were being rescued and our part was to drive them from Springfield to Rolla where another K would take them on to St Louis. They will spend the night in St Louis, then tomorrow morning they'll leave for Chihuahua Rescue in Ohio.

We had four hours before we needed to leave on our part of the trip, so we took them home to get acquainted. Here they are in their carriers on our porch.

Uno and Dos are sharing a carrier. The little black girl was very scared and wanted no part of us. She refused to come out of her carrier and when we tried to help her out, she growled and snapped. We left her in her carrier with some food and water.

Her friend, Dos was very happy to come out and play. He had a drink and a little snack, then watered every tree, bush and rock in the yard.

He thought Rob gave divine back scratches.

Tres was a pretty little long haired lady who didn't want to be touched. She came out and walked around the porch, had a drink, then hid under a chair for a while. After a little rest, she came out and returned to her carrier.

Cuatro was a real cutie.

He came into the yard, had some water and a little snack, then pooped and had a pee that he must have been saving up for days. I thought that boy's little leg would give out before he finally finished.

What a relief! After that he sat in the sunshine for a while just looking around.

Cinco was so very afraid. She sat in the back of her carrier and trembled. Rob coaxed her out and sat gently stroking her for a long time. She finally walked around the yard a little and seemed to enjoy sun bathing.

Cuatro and Cinco spent some time together just relaxing in the grass. During our trip to Rolla a little later, Cinco made friends with me and I spent the last half of the trip rubbing those big ears.

Last, but certainly not least was Seis. From the minute she saw us, her whole body was wagging and she was begging to play.

It was hard to get a good picture of her because she was so active. Her very favorite thing is a belly rub and she'll roll over and beg for one if she thinks it'll work. She got lots of them today. She had a big drink and ate a pretty good sized snack. This dog should have no trouble getting adopted. She's a doll.

Finally we loaded them up and headed off to on our leg of the transport. Did I fall in love with any of them? Yes, several of them. Travel safely little ones and find safe, happy forever homes.

What great hearts you and Rob have! Do tell me... how did you transport them? Surely all the carriers didn't fit in the cargo area of your wagon??

Wishing perfect forever homes for each of them!

What a great thing to do ... esp brining them home and spending some quality time with them before taking them onto the next leg!

Wow, six (I mean seis) at once! That's got to be a record! What sweeties they are. Thanks for doing your part to get them to forever homes!
