The Transport Adventures of Thelma and Louise

NOTE:  Thelma and Louise were in boarding at a veterinary clinic in the northwest mountains of North Carolina.  The weekend weather forecast for that February weekend was for a severe ice storm.  The transport was close to being postponed due to the winter storm warning.

    Bob G and his wife, Clair, called the transport coordinator and offered to pick up Thelma & Louise and take them all the way to the New England area.  The catch?  It was Wednesday afternoon, and they’d be heading north the next morning (Thursday).  They were in Greensboro, NC, and planned to drive to Johnson City, TN where their daughter (Cheryl) checked out a college there.  Bob & Clair offered to drive a bit out of their way to the vet boarding clinic and pick up Thelma and Louise, for the trip back.  They planned to leave on that Thursday afternoon, taking turns driving through the night (ahead of the storm) with stops every 3-4 hours for a break. 

We sprung into action to make sure that Thelma & Louise were ready for their pickup, and everyone safely beat the storm!

Thelma and Louise were fostered by Nancy.  Louise quickly found a fur-ever family, but Thelma subsequently got sick.  

Nancy, Thelma’s foster mom writes:

     Louise was adopted but Thelma (Emma) stayed.  “Emma" was kind of close to the name "Thelma" so Emma she is!!! 

     Emma came to us with Kennel cough, and she and I spent 6 weeks together in our summer cottage while my husband stayed at our permanent residence, until she got better.   When Emma was adopted [to another family], the adopters brought her back saying that she was too devoted to me to go to anyone else.   Emma chose us.   

     Emma is thriving!!!!!!  She has the most beautiful gait when she runs!!  I almost named her Joyful because she is sooooo happy to be alive and healthy. And she's beautiful!!!!!
