|Shelley transporting Charlie and Lola to foster homes|
On Monday, Shelley, one of the coordinators from Coast-to-Coast (www.c2cdr.org) sent an email asking if we could help out with a transport, so we worked out the details.

|April meets Charlie!|
We met Shelley near the BWI airport and she introduced us to Charlie. Charlie is a 4 year old, male, black, long-haired dachshund- just adorable. He had just been neutered (all dogs that come through the rescue are neutered or spayed to reduce overpopulation), and was medicated for deworming. We took a couple of pictures and loaded Charlie in our truck for our drive south.
- The tricky part of transports after work is the traffic. Going to meet Shelley, there was a 9 car pileup in the other direction on the highway, which slowed traffic. After getting Charlie, we took the B/W parkway south to the Washington Beltway, where there was a 3 car accident pulled to the side of the highway (left side) and police cars were there with lights flashing, so traffic slowed again.
|Rob, Tom, April and Charlie: A Happy Ending!|
We got to Charlie's foster mom, April about 15 minutes after our projected arrival (amazingly), although she got there early. It was great to see how much of a great dog person she is, and she explained that she had a dachshund before. She was very excited about fostering Charlie, and we were happy to help make the connection.
REMINDER - Remember, Coast-to-Coast Dachshund rescue pays for the medical bills of fosters, so they can always use donations at www.c2cdr.org!
