Goodpasture, those guys are so cute. I'm glad you found homes for them. I take in stray dogs and cats which have been dropped near my house and find homes for those I can, but most of them wind up staying with me. I don't understand the mentality of people who abandon helpless animals. If you cannot take care of them or find homes for them, as a last resort take them to animal control. Many communities have low cost spay and neuter programs. There are also foster programs in many communities for unwanted pets. Please do not abandon these animals. Ok, I'm stepping down off my soapbox now.

On a different note, can anybody in the circle tell me about Quanza? I understand that it is from Africa and that is about it. I would love to learn more about this.

masonsdaughter, always good to hear from you, I think what you are looking for is the celebration of Kwanzaa and if that is so here is a good description of just what it is:
Kwanzaa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Anyway, we took them home (made us even later than usual), fed them (they went through half a ton of food) watered them (several gallons) and fixed them a place to sleep it off. The next day we took them to our vet to have him check them out and give them some shots and worm them. Over the course of the last two weeks we have posted pictures on a couple of forums that we post on (other than here) and two of them have homes to go to. One in Illinois, the other on Cape Cod. So Friday or Saturday this week I will be driving, in a quad cab dodge, to Cape Cod via Illinois with Annemieke, me, four Jack Russell dogs (our own overindulgence) and three pups........did I mention I have to be back in Oklahoma before Christmas?

The three pups......

This one is going to Illinois:

Anyhow, hopefully I won't get hit with another snow storm like I did last January.........
Bigtime props to you on the puppy rescue!

Wishing you safe travels.

Goodpasture, what beautiful pups and I would gladly take one..Thank you for caring for Gods creatures..If I believed that He tested us, it would be in the way we treat the animals that he gave us as companions.

thanks Ptsum, very informative. I like the seven principles.
Goodpasture, If the weather forecast for KY is right, and if it does go north, it isn't good. Wishing you safe travels. Be careful.
