When I get to transport them - I have to blog about them. One of the perks of being the Boastful Boston!

Suki is a little girl who had been taken to animal control along with her brother. The story went that they had been left in the temporary care of a friend who did not return for the dogs. The care taker had not signed on for a permanent situation and could no longer keep them in a rental house. Since the person who turned them in was not the owner, however, they had to be listed on the lost dog page for 10 days before they could be considered for adoption or pulled by rescue. For 10 long days, we waited, looking at their little mug shots on the web site. Finally the release day arrived and they could be seen by a vet and released to rescue. I coordinated them with another transport nearby so I would have 3 bostons in the car - none of them spade or neutered - hmmm - 3 crates might be in order.

Someone else was monitoring their release date and Suki's brother went home directly from the shelter. Only 2 crates were needed.

Suki is a very little girl - the halter and collars I had were way too big. I carried her to the car and let her ride up front with me until we picked up the second passenger. The shelter had told me that she liked to be carried everywhere anyway. She made it to my lap with no problem. Shhh, don't tell the police or the foster coordinator - not the safest way to ride. When I got out of the car to admit passenger number 2 she ran all over the car looking out all the windows. Why is this important you ask? Well because when we took her out to do business at her destination in NC, she acted as if she could not walk at all leaving the rescue President, and later her foster Mom to wonder if she had a medical issue.

Turns out that Suki was probably kept in a cage most of her life and had little opportunity or need to walk so she wasn't really used to doing it very often. Poor little girl. Bostons have to do the Boston Terrier 500, it's in their genes.

I called her Doodle Bug - her foster Mom named her Suki - maybe from the hit show True Blood or maybe because she looked like a Suki. Whatever you call her, she's a sweetheart with that one big blue eye and a heart much bigger than her size. She would make a sweet addition to the right family.

By the way, the second passenger is Roscoe - also on our available dogs page. More on Roscoe's ride later. Check them both out - won't you?
