Rescue Transport of 2 Dachshunds for "Dash Rescue"!

On Sunday, Dec. 14th after a nice morning visit with our friends Sam, Laura and baby Mary Rose, we did a Dachshund
rescue transport. We met Katie in Alexandria and picked up 2 dachshunds: Saylor is a red, smooth boy, 2 years old.
SAYLOR (being fostered in Annapolis, Md.) ~ 15lbs, 2 years, male/neutered, red smooth doxie, Heartworm negative (thankfully) & up to date on vaccines ___ sassy little man! ___  http://tinyurl.com/naf499w 

Dapple is a black and tan dachshund with some dapple coloring, and also 2 years old. DAPPLE (also being fostered in Annapolis) ~ 14lbs, 2 years, female/spayed, silver-dapple smooth doxie, not yet tested for heartworm  & up to date on vaccines ___  http://tinyurl.com/nap8n94
Both came from Alabama and were transported to Annapolis, Maryland to be fostered for future adoption. 
Dapple rode on Tom's lap
   DID YOU KNOW?   All of the dogs that the various rescues in Maryland save and find homes for (after getting all of them much-needed medical care) come from the southern U.S. That's because the general attitude in the southern U.S. is "we don't believe in spaying and neutering, we don't bring our dogs and cats to a vet, and if they get to be to inconvenient, we simply dump them on the side of the road."  - I lived in TN, GA, and KY, and trust me, that's the truth. Anyway, all of the dogs we find homes for come from the south and find homes in the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeastern U.S.
   The Dachshund rescue we transported for this time is DASH Rescue, and we brought the two dogs right to the President of the rescue, Sarah Young.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
