What's Up Pups

Back at the ranch after 17 days on the road (4,080 road miles, plus 500 air miles). The rental, a Pontiac Vibe, performed flawlessly and kept us a/c'd through the 90+ temps. The trip, which took us through 8 states (and 1 foreign country), was wonderful. We covered a lot of ground and had many adventures. On the back roads and byways we saw some of mother nature's glorious achievements.

We also encountered human nature's cruelty and a situation that called for a rescue mission. With just 3 days left on the road and the Vermilion Cliffs and Grand Canyon ahead of us,
we were driving through Monument Valley in Navajo nation, outside of Mexican Hat, Utah, when we came upon 4 pups that were tossed out on the side of the road like trash. There was no other decision but to help them and bring them with us. Fortunately the Grand Canyon has a kennel facility available, and with the very wonderful staff 's help we were able to leave the pups in their care while we enjoyed the Grand Canyon.

Now they're here with us at home. And our other 5 animals are accommodating the newbies quite well. They miss their mommy, and cry/call for her. They are comforted when we sit with them and they cluck like little ducks when we hold them.

This is Ranger. She's going to live with us.
There are two more brown ones. A boy.A girl.And a wooly black girl. They're so smart and adorable. Good travelin' pups. We'll be looking for good homes for three of them.

That one in the background of the second picture with his little legs all splayed out is sooooo cute.

Um. Oh gosh. I found this through blogging.la.

I'm sort of in love with the puppies, especially the girl with the unicorn dot on her forehead.

Can you email me at adrianaroze at hotmail (dot) com? I just have some questions. Thanks.
