UPDATE #1: Sunday October 15th, 2012 from one of her rescue angel transporters, Charlotte:

For someone who prefers the company of male dogs, I didn't think I'd fall for Star/Autumn like I did. Even during my brief time with her, I could see what a darling girl she is. At first, she was reluctant to get into my car (I was the first leg after her overnight visit). I'm sure she was hoping she had finished traveling. Once in the car, I got a few face snuffles from her and a big, wrinkly head rested on my shoulder. We got moving and she laid down in the back. What a good girl she is in the car!

A short trip later, we arrived at the next hand-over location. We took a little walk around on the grass while we waited for her next "chauffeur" to arrive. Even though she did seem confused during the process, she still wanted to meet everyone. I even got a lean from her!

For having met her for only a very brief time, and during a very confusing couple of days, her sweetness was incredible. I can't even imagine what a love she'll be once she's settled in and comfortable around her new foster parents.

She really made an impression on me. I'm hoping once she's available for adoption, I'll be in a position to put in an application for her.

Send her some kisses from me!


UPDATE: #2 Sunday October 15th, 2012 from one of her rescue angel transporters, Rachel:

I feel proud to say that I am a part of such a wonderful team!

Autumn has certainly wormed her way into my heart and I know its a long road ahead for her, but she'll pull through with your gentle guidance and care.

Attached is a picture of her on our way to Prescott. She slept right through with the aid of Elton John ballads.


P.S. She certainly has the snoring down pat haha, though very lady like

BHRR's Autumn really needs some extra warmth and kindness to come her way…….I shall have a file set-up for her at Kanata Animal Hospital as of Monday October 15th in the afternoon. I will be bringing her to work with me tomorrow. I had hoped to give her a couple of days to settle in upon arrival, yet, she is in a very bad neglected state. :( VERY bad…. :(

Thank you to Rachel, who along with her sister is going to be BHRR's Autumn's SS for the collar, rope toys and dog bed and bones!
