Hi it’s Charly, KOIT's proud #CrazyCatLady & avid dog lover. When I’m not hanging with my five furry family members, I’m volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or touring a dog-friendly vineyard. >^..^<
#Vegas Or BUST Starring Shadow!

"My Summer Vacation" ~ by Charly Kayle This is the impromptu trip I made to bring a shelter dog profiled on #WetNoseWed on KOIT, from FurEver Animal Rescue in the East Bay, to his new family in Las Vegas.
Back story: I posted Shadow's pic on my Charly Kayle Facebook page, and got a reply from a guy saying they would adopt him in a minute, but lived in Vegas and had no way to get him. I thought, "I'll call his bluff" and wrote, "If you are SERIOUS and really want this dog, I will DRIVE HIM TO YOU." It was no bluff. So I followed my intuition (and my heart), and after FurEver checked out and approved the family, here I am... on the road with my two dogs, driving from San Francisco to Vegas!
Shadow watches the road. (All dogs strapped in using dog seat belts.) Safety first!
Shadow fell in love with Sasha, and spent most of the trip nuzzling his head in hers.
Brooklyn was thrilled to be next to his mommy, in the front passenger seat...
Except when Sasha drove so I could nap. (I WISH!) Shadow was the backseat driver.
Busted! Only way to get pics was while driving. I really wanted that nuzzling shot!
After a grueling 10-hour drive, I had to say goodbye. I was ecstatic to meet Shadow's new family, whom he took to right away. (And who hate pictures after a long day even more than I do.) There's Brooklyn, photo-bombing as usual!
NEW HOME! Enzo (in pool) brings ball to coax Shadow in to play.
