This ones for you Love4Himmies

We all have our definitions of heros or those we wish to honour. Today I wish to thank L4H and her DH for stepping up and helping many concerned people get the pittie to safety.

Without question or concern L4H eagerly took to the request. She was so easy to work with and never flinched. I was told by my contact that I MUST meet her as she is a wonderful human being...yes even in person!.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart in helping to get this deserving girl to safety. Because of you L4H - the transport was fulfilled and this girl will no longer have the shadow of death lingering over her head.

Equally there were other people that stepped up within rescue and they as well are to be thanked and honored.

Bless you all....and a special thank you to a new friend.

Oh thank you so much BenMax You have me crying at my desk, lol.

I am still thinking about this girl, she touched my heart and a piece of it will always belong to her. If I had her any longer, I think it would be very difficult to give her up .

I only had a tiny piece of this rescue, much more was done by the rescue in Ontario, you BenMax, and the Montreal SPCA.

I will gladly help with transport whenever I can, just let me know.

BTW, when I told my mother I was transporting a pittie, she was horrified, sent her the pics yestereday so I am waiting to hear her reaction

Well done! I've always thought BSL were, well, BS, and I applaud anyone willing to look past it and help out a pittie in need. Now I'm even more sensitive to their plight...DW lives in fear of a certain pack member being taken from us...

Very true. Can you even imagine that she would have been destroyed? That dog is all love and kisses....this is why so much effort went into saving her..she deserved LIFE.

wow, somehow, hazel missed this one, too!

You did a fantastic job pitching in as you did, L4H. Never downplay your part in the transport--every link is needed to make the chain whole...and thanks to you and your DH, the chain was complete and this very deserving girl got her chance at Life.

Good job all around! You, too, BenMax! And everyone else in the chain!

Well, just cuz you have an ulterior motive does not make what you did any less important! But I love your ulterior motive!

Actually, being with her made me realize I would really love to have a dog. It just worked out that DH was smittened by her too. I did the transport cause help saving her was more important than anything I could even think of doing that day. I can't believe how quickly I fell for her . I have been around many dogs before, there was just something about her that was special. I hope her new owners see that in her.
