I would like to share a great story with all of you.
I have been working with a wonderful rescuer in Adel Iowa for 2 years now. I live in Winnipeg, Canada, just 7 hours north of Minneapolis.
Her name is Amy, and she is the founder of AHeinz57 Transport and Rescue. Whenever Hull's Haven Border Collie Rescue has needed help with transport or foster in her area, Amy has NEVER said no. She is just the best.
Enter Sam Taylor, Sky Angel extrordinaire....who has helped us on numerous occasions move dogs over to Amy. One particular time I told him "It would be so amazing to meet you and Amy." and this weekend, Sam swooped over to Des Moines, scooped up Amy and two little Border Collie/Doberman rescue pups, and flew them all up here!
The photos will tell you the rest of the tale!
Our first sight of the US rescue crew.
Sam, Amy, Krispy and Mozart (hey I didn't name them!)
Amy and Mozart in our back pen. Some supper and a drink of water were in order.

Sam and Freckles schmoozin. "Wave Freckles!"
"Stick em up Freckles!"
Sam kibbutzes with Freckles while Ally looks on and laughs, and Brian cooks up a feast of corn on the cob, bbq ribs and chicken, and baked potatoes.
Sam visits with Riddle, our blind Border Collie.
Amy chats with her son on the phone while the rescue pups check out the yard.
Sam tosses the frisbee for the furkids.

The next morning, Riddle shows Amy some lovins. It should be a crime to look that good that early in the morning!
Flare shares some love with Amy too.
Muna checks out the Rescue Plane
Uncle Sam has rescued 32 dogs now. he really has only 20 stickers on the plane, so I messed with the photo and made it right
Getting ready to leave. We had hoped for bad weather, so they would have to stay and visit dome more, but no such luck!
