On the Road Again

Posted by on September 18, 2008

Ooooh boy! What a long journey. It’s all been goin pretty good too – except for that needle shot they gave me. I didn’t like that much at all, but they said it would keep me from gettin sick, so I guess that’s good. I got a bath, too, and that felt real nice. I was stinky!

I can’t thank the Animal League and the Humane Society SPCA of Bexar County enough for all they’ve done for all the animals that had to be evacuated from Hurricane Ike. You know, they didn’t name me Ike because I’m bad; they did it because I am the good that came out of it. I guess they’re what you call “looking on the bright side.”

Everyone pitched in to get us animals comfortably loaded for the first leg of the journey to the half way point. We rode for a real long time, but made stops for food, stretching and walks. I got to get out and play a bit too. We were headin’ to do a layover in Nashville with their shelter partner Metro Animal Services. We arrived at 2:30 am! Those folks were also just great to us. They had people there to unload all of us off the big moving thing so we could go potty after the long haul. Then they gave us a really nice place at this shelter to get a snack and take a nap without moving. The people that rescued me said that we have to do this all over again after we rest for a few hours. I don’t like the sound of that too much, but I can’t wait to get to the Animal League in New York where I will find a new family. That makes me happier than a clam at high tide!

Well I’m gonna try and get some shut-eye. We’re all pooped over here. I’ll let you in on the final update after we all arrive safe and sound to our final destination, North Shore Animal League America! I am so happy, my tail just keeps going. Hope I can sleep.

Love and Licks,
