So two weeks ago Carol, who was fostering our boy for 2 months, brought Magoo to MD, met Laura, who brought him to NJ where she and the rescue vet reside. He got his first heartworm shot on a Monday night and had several days of recuperation to be ready to fly to Ithaca that Friday. Alas the thunderstorms made the trip too hairy so it was postponed to Saturday, May 31. We had our fingers and toes crossed.
Sure enough we received a call from Jack, the pilot, that Laura got there with Magoo and the flight was a go!
Expected arrival time in Ithaca was 10:45 am.
Evidently Magoo is a chatty fellow (above w/ Jack, below with Nancy)
We didn't get to see the plane land as the headwinds were less than expected so arrival time was 10:15 and we got there at 10:30.
The boy was very confused by then, what with all these changing humans in his life.
We took him straight to our local pet store to get fitted for a Martingale collar and harness which makes both his life and ours easier in the long run. I do hate choking dogs with collars.
We brought him home, really home, but he didn't know that. However he is such an adaptable fellow that he went along, confused but agreeable.
Stay tuned for the next episode where we try to get the cats, Lillie and LouAnne, to accept this boy.
