Ever since our deaf puppy Shadowfax arrived to us from Waco, Texas via a marathon relay of volunteer rescue drivers, Alycia and I have been anxious to try to repay the karmic debt and help others dogs in need. We volunteered our services as rescue dog transporters with the local Humane Society (the Circle of Friends Humane Society in Grand Forks) and waited for our call to action.
The only problem is that living in North Dakota means that you're fairly well out of the way of well, everyone. Not many folks are ever going to or from Grand Forks, or passing through your area. After a couple of transport attempts that fell through, Alycia and I finally got our chance on Sunday to participate in a rescue dog transport.
This is Remington (photos were taken days prior to the transport), our passenger from Grand Forks, North Dakota to the Canadian Border. Remington is a 1 year old Brittany Spaniel, and a very sweet and handsome pup. He was rescued from a shelter in Michigan by a Brittany Spaniel Rescue Organization and was being transported to his forever home in Ontario, Canada, somewhere north of Winnipeg (I believe the town was Dryden, ON).
We met Remington at a gas station in Grand Forks with his driver Patty, who handed him off to us. She had spent some time strolling around to give him an opportunity to do some business before we arrived. Remington was such a sweet puppy, he hopped right up on both Alycia and I and gave us plenty of kisses. We got the requisite paperwork, said our goodbyes to Patty and got on the road, headed for the parking lot of the duty free shop near the Canadian border where we were set to meet Karen, the next leg of the Remington Relay.
