|Dog cage loaded on our truck for transport|
After a quick dinner and dropping off a key for a friend (about 15 miles away), we drove to get the cage (and another as it turned out). The folks donating the cages had done extensive rescue work for many,. many years. In fact, we met them years ago when they brought us two dachshunds to care for overnight before the dogs went to foster homes.The husband and wife team are just amazing people, and I got to meet their 3 dogs and 1 cat.
We loaded the large 7 foot long by 4 foot long, home-built, wooden and mesh crate with a large metal cage (large enough for a a large Labrador Retriever) into our pick up and headed to Shelley in northern Baltimore. Shelley was getting the cages for a rescue in central Pennsylvania that she also works with- and whom

It was great to see Shelley, and it was fun to pile our three dogs in the car, with our guest dog, Kolbe (whom we watched for 8 days) and drive with coffee, iced tea and sing to songs from the 1970s and 80s.
Another dog-rescue-related drive done! It is so worthwhile to do things for dogs who don't care who you are, as long as you treat them kindly. People could learn a lot from dogs. :)
