Pawin' It Forward


It all began on Sunday, June 8, 2008. Khyra got her mom up early, gave her the keys to the XTerra and sent her on a journey that continues to this day.

While you and I sleep-in/relax/do our own thing on the weekends, Khyra sends her mom, in her XTerra, to help other dogs on their way to find forever homes. Although no one is counting, I estimate that these weekend journeys have aided, at the very least, 104 dogs (that would be one dog a weekend, but each transport is more likely to be between 2 and 4 dogs and sometimes a cat!) The acutal number is probably closer to 300 dogs that have ridden in Khyra's XTerra on the way to their-happily-ever after. There are usually at least two dogs being transported, at a time. Sometimes more than one transports for more than one rescue, and more than one road trip on a weekend! You can check out Khyra's Photobucket to see some of the beautiful dogs Khyra has helped.

We all do what we can do to "paw it forward," and make the world a better place for our four-legged companions. Phyl, with Khyra's blessing and her XTerra, makes this journey almost every weekend, to give others a chance at a great life. I would like to help. And I would like you to help Stumpy help her.

"Khyra's Khatch Me If You Khan Khontest," will do just that. Send me a video of your four-legged Khompanion khatching as many treats in a row, as possible. The winner will have a $50.00 gas card donated, in their name, to Khyra's XTerra Transport. They'll also receive a batch of Stumpy's favorite homemade pumpkin/banana/peanut butter cookies (without the banana, if you prefer) and a Petsmart/Petco/Walmart gift card...depending on when I can get out of dirtville and where I go.

Send your bloopers in case there is a booby prize!


The rules are simple.
1) Email your video: giantspeckledchihuahuaatlivedotcom (replace the "at" with "@" and "dot" with "." )
2) Include your blog name and url.
3) Video must be raw,unedited and uploaded to YouTube
4) The khatches MUST be counted outloud, on the video.
5) Title the video with the Khatcher's name (the 4-legged) and the number of khatches.
5) If you improve your score, go ahead and enter again.

Khontest begins today (Thursday, May 27) and ends Monday, June 7 at midnite EST.
All video's will be posted to Khyra's Khatch Me If You Khan Khontest blog
Khontest begins today (Thursday, May 27) and ends Monday, June 7 at midnight EST.

Can you beat Stumpy?

Great idea! And there is none more deserving. Unfortunately, none of our are impressive treat catchers. Watch for me to make an appearance in a dog suit. :)
