"That's All, Folks"

Anyone is welcome to play -the more, the merrier! You automatically become a �TEApotter� the first time you play in our challenge. Where will you find inspiration? Will it be from the teapot? The destination location? Something about the recipient? Or could it be from the challenge itself? Remember, your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not a requirement. Just have fun!

Hurricane Florence was a devastating event in our southeast states. Before, during, and after the storm, rescue teams in the form of power crews, tree removal crews, emergency operations, volunteers, and rescue squads from all over the country queued up to be ready to do what needed to be done. One story about how the community came together really touched my heart. To me, it shows that there are good and caring people and that the spirit of community can benefit some of the most vulnerable among us. It just takes heart--that's all, folks!

Here's the story from the news:

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue went to Florence, South Carolina, Wednesday to pick up 38 dogs and seven cats. On their way back to the D.C. area, their van broke down outside Fayetteville, North Carolina. The staff and van full of pets were left stranded at a gas station on a sweltering 90-degree day. The shelter sent out an urgent message on their Facebook page, asking for help. "EMERGENCY!!! NORTH CAROLINA SUPPORTERS. THE VAN IS BROKEN DOWN ON INTERSTATE 95. Exit 40. 911. We need help for the driver who is unloading the dogs to shade. EMERGENCY," the desperate post read.

The community quickly responded, and more than 55 people showed up to help unload the dogs, give them water and keep them cool. Lucky Dog says a van from Looney's K9 Rescue Transport, which is based in South Carolina, showed up and took the animals the rest of the way. A kindhearted citizen even paid to replace the group's broken alternator.

"Today, in the face of one of the worst storms the Carolinas have ever seen, 55 amazing people took time out of their own preparations to help our dogs and cats. We are truly LUCKY to have them in our lives," the shelter said in a news release.

Today we honor "Looney's Rescue Transport", a husband-wife team in South Carolina, who along with their volunteers came to the rescue of the rescuers! Use something that inspired you from this story to create a Thank You card and send it to:

Looney's K9 Rescue Transport
108 Schell Drive
Lexington, SC 29072

In Donna Looney's words: "This transport was a Godsend, I say that because we travel the I -81 corridor but decided to take I-95 instead. We were on our way back from a transport. When I read that a van full of dogs had broken down. We messaged them to let them know we were over an hour away but will help any way possible to get those furkids to safety. We truly love what we do."

EXTRA COOKIES: Bring your pet to tea day! Attach a picture of your favorite fur baby in your challenge thread post!

I've got goose bumps reading that amazing story. I will have to get inky, thanks Jean.

helekins 10-22-2018 10:45 PM

Here is my card for the Challenge. Had the perfect image coloured up and ready to go - just need matting up. This card will go to a wonderful cause.

Can't work out how to attach photo of the fur babies - anyone got any idea?

Growing up with dogs and cats always, I know how transport matters. We usually used to bring the dogs on holidays, in crates on the trailer my dad made. I'm sure he made the crates too, LOL.

Here's my card: MMTPT535 Woof Woof Thanks

Cook22 10-23-2018 02:34 AM

I meant to add a couple of stories about why I love the stamp I used. In my teens we had an Afghan, but ours was black. She was a rehomed dog and must have been badly treated by her previous owners because she was scared of being touched. She'd flinch if you went to pat her, and proper brushing was just about impossible so twice a year the vet would give my mother knockout pills do that she could get her looking reasonable. I used to love watching her gallop along the beach.
My mother's last dog was a little Westie they got as a pup. And then all of a sudden they moved from town to country and at first town-dog Daisy didn't know what to make of it. My mum got shingles when they moved, so it was DH and I who brought Daisy on her first country walk. We met a herd of cows along the road to the post office, and she was petrified. She was shaking and trembling and wouldn't budge; we had to pick her up and carry her till we were past them.

Thank you so much for sharing this. I am sitting here blinking back tears. It's so beautiful to read about the kindness of others. 55 people! That is awesome! Thank you for the story! Today is one of those days so I might not get to it today but I will try to get a card made at some point!

card crazy 10-23-2018 05:47 AM

This is a great challenge, Jean. What a story!!

MMTPT535 Thanks

I would never miss an opportunity to show off my fur babies. This fabulous portrait of my pup, Kaden who crossed the rainbow bridge this year, was done by our very own Dina Kowal. She has an amazing talent!
I followed her progress on Instagram. I just love what she did here!

Miss Boo 10-23-2018 07:50 AM

First, here’s my card.

MMTPT535 - for furry rescuers by Miss Boo - at Splitcoaststampers

Here’s a fun story about yesterday.
A little back story. Our cat Princess (18 years old) lives with her dad because my DH and I are living separately for a few years. Long story. And our cat Chloe, the 9 years old scaredy cat, lives with my son and me.

So, two cats followed my son home from the bus yesterday and just waltzed into our apartment like they lived here. My poor son who has autism and cerebral palsy was at a loss of what to do. If Princess had been there, her tail would have grown three sizes, she would have hissed and then she would have chased them out. My cat though? She ran and hid under my bed :roll: My son shouted his alarm. I was stunned. But sure enough. We had two cats sniffing around our living room. They were good cats though and let me pick them up and take them back outside.

Here he is on my messy bed wearing his Halloween collar :)

Miss Boo 10-23-2018 07:50 AM

Oops! My pic did show up. I’ll try again.

Miss Boo 10-23-2018 07:54 AM

Well, it’s not letting me add a picture. Bummer.

Denise, beautiful dog. Sorry for your loss. :(

Miss Boo 10-23-2018 02:59 PM

Such cute fur babies everyone has!

susie australia 10-23-2018 06:04 PM

Many, many years ago my beautiful old Labrador, Sam passed away. This image reminds me of him and the hours and hours we spent together watching sunrises and sunsets. I got him as a rescue dog, to this day I still think he was the one who rescued me.

Thanks for a wonderful Teaparty Jean. This is already in the mail.

Denise - what a great job Dina did with Kaden - I watched it develop on Facebook. I bet that brought a lump to the throat.

What a great story about the rescue

RJP111 10-24-2018 05:13 AM

My passion is rescuing senior dogs! (see my signature tag line :) ) I got shivers down my spine & tears in my eyes while reading the story of the rescue of the rescue van! It will be an honor to send Looney's K9 rescue a "thank you" card. I am pretty sure I still have a particular card in my stash that has a dog on the front. If so, it is going out to Looney's K9 rescue.

Teachybaby 10-24-2018 08:09 AM

Loved this story; thank you for sharing. I am putting a small donation in with my card. xo

cjzim 10-24-2018 10:44 AM

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Jean! Here is my card ~

Thanks to the K9 Rescue

All of my pictures of our Golden Retriever, Bella, whom we had to say good bye to a few weeks ago, are on my phone and I can't figure out how to get them here : (

JRHolbrook 10-24-2018 06:44 PM

Jean, thanks for sharing this amazing story! We have two dogs, one is a rescue from a kill shelter. Dog lovers are always ready to help! I've had company all day and last weekend too. I'll have to make some thank you's to send out! Such a great Teapot Challenge!
