Gems on Thursday!

For this week's Dogs on Thursday I bring you two sweet gems! Last week I got an email sent to American Brittany Rescue and National Brittany Rescue and Adoption Network volunteers about a transport coming through the area. It seems two Brittany/Labrador mix girls, Ruby and Pearl, were picked up as strays in Tennessee, and moved to a foster home in North Carolina. After vetting and spaying, they were put up for adoption, and found a forever home in Maine! Together! What a wonderful thing, that their new mom and dad were willing to keep these girls together.

Anyway, my small part of the transport was to pick them up in Delaware and deliver them to the next volunteer in central New Jersey. Here they are, taking a snooze in the car.


I have no idea which is Ruby and which is Pearl, so I just called them both "sister". Look how the lighter sister is laying her head on the darker sister. Soooo sweet. We were running ahead of schedule, so they had a nice long walk at the transfer spot in New Jersey. Just look at these sweet girls!


I love how their legs are mirror opposites - see the markings? Same white front leg and half-white back leg, but on opposite sides. They are truly two halves of a whole, and I am so thankful to their new mom and dad for keeping them both together.


Earlier this week their new mommy sent me this picture of Ruby and Pearl all settled in. What is that they are laying on? Their new daddy!
That picture brought tears to my eyes. I think things are going to work out for them in their new home...
