Today’s cuppa: Irish breakfast tea
A number of commenters on the previous
post, and a few more folks on Twitter, wanted to know the fate of the
black-and-white stray puppy that Alaskan trucker Lisa Kelly adopted
during her adventure driving the treacherous and congested mountain
roads of northern India on the just-concluded first season of History’s “IRT: Deadliest Roads.”
The fluffy pup was, at the end, Kelly’s only
companion (except for the unseen cameraman, of course) when she did a
dangerous solo fuel run to help stranded villagers.
I checked with History, and spokesperson Vicky Kahn emailed back, “Lisa
made sure that the dog (whose name is RANPUR) was given a great home.
Ranpur has been taken in by one of the producers of the show and living
California, and is very happy and well cared for.“
So there you have it, Cuppers — a puppy facing a bleak future wandering
the streets of an Indian town is now living a dog’s life life in Southern
California. Will pass along more details if I can get them (also trying
to get a current picture, but no promises!).
