Travelling Man

We booked a flight last night.

We will be heading to Virginia in October.  A trip back to see Phil's parents and hopefully some of his friends.  But it's not just Phil and I doing the travelling.  Guess who is coming with us?

{He's thrilled, can't you tell?}

Mr. Cotton is coming with us.

I'm a little freaked out about having Cotton travel in cargo.  What if he gets scared?  Or cold?  Is he going to freak out?  Will he be super mad at me when we get there?  Will his little whines as he is taken away from us at the check-in?

I can't think about it.

Taylor has made this journey at least twice that I know of.  Maybe more.  But she will not be coming with us.  She will be staying with my coworker and her family (her daughter dotes on Taylor CONSTANTLY).  Taylor likes it there more than being with us, so I know she won't be upset.  She'll be upset when we pick her up.

I wish he were still under 20 pounds and we could take him ON the flight instead.

I may be overly attached to my dog.

  1. Is he too big to come on the plane with you? I know Jestina takes Sir Sharks with her as carryon when she goes home.

  2. eeeek! I am scared to death to let Huckleberry ride in cargo. We always make the in-laws watch him or take him to daycare. He loves his daycare (but it's pricey!) You're brace doing the whole cargo thing. I've heard too many horror stories!!

  5. I'm sure you've done your research bit I just read about this a few days ago.....so scary. don't mean to be a pessimist but I think the airlines make it all seem so simple. Hope your pup does great on his flight.

  7. It's okay, I make the pet-sitter send me camera phone pictures of Dorian & Pan when she's watching them AT MY HOUSE.

    OCD rears its ugly head.
