Connor: A Weekend Trek from Arkansas to Ontario, Canada!

On September 11 & 12, 2010, seventeen wonderful drivers gave up their time, gas, and transportation to bring our lovely little boy home from his foster home in Arkansas to our home in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. 

We've had Connor for three months now and I can't imagine life without him. He fit into our small family instantly and is enjoying the life of a spoiled and loved dog. A few of his favourite things include: visits to the leash-free park, treats (latest favourites are dried sweet potato slices and natural peanut butter in his kong), belly rubs, walks, cuddling in our bed or on the couch, and playing with his friend Spitha.

Here is a video of him playing with Spitha last weekend: 


A special thank you to Connor's foster in Arkansas, Debbie Clarke, Ontario co-ordinator Helen Tostevin, and transport co-ordinator Nancy Walker.

Happy holidays from our family to yours!

Forever grateful,

Melissa, Louis & Connor
Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

  1. Bravo to all!

    I'm thrilled you've started this blog to help share the tales of the tails saved thanks to the kindness of NBRAN and those associated with it!

    We've been quite happy to have been able to help with Brittany transports since May of 2009 (I did my first dog transport in June 2008)

    Here's to more posts - but one day, I hope we aren't needed!
