We're still on the way! We're in VA now so maybe another hour to our hotel. We hit a lot of road work and Karma had a car hiccup at one of our stops lol. Can someone please repost which shelter we have reserved for tomorrow? I remember maybe Sally posting pictures of the park with our shelter circled? Thanks!

Woohoo we made it.  Was a bit longer of a drive with NC road construction.  And as Cassie mentioned, we had a little hiccup.  The girls locked me out of the car at a gas station.  Fortunately, the nice guy worked by there had everything to get me out of my jam.  Everyone is awesome as expected.  Can't wait to meet everyone else tomorrow.

Karma, Adelaide, Aissa May, and Maggie May and Brendol in spirit

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

Keep on posting! I'll keep on checking.

Kathi

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!
