Safe!

So, Kyler has arrived safely in Indiana! After lots of thinking, researching and speaking with the stud dog owner, we just decided to fly her there instead. We used Northwest Airlines and we ended up getting a very good price. We just had to look for the deals! A non-stop flight right to Indianapolis ended up costing us only $194, instead of the website quoting $350. Phew! Duke's owners, the Syczylo's from Durite Vizslas, just called to say that she got there safe and sound! She was settling in nicely. The flight ended up only being 2 1/2 hours, so really not too bad.

It is me that was afraid to fly her, she didn't know any different from a bumpy car ride! I just tend to get nervous on flights and would rather keep my feet on the ground!

Hopefully she will be back in a week or so after she is bred. We'll see how it all works out!

In other news, the VCCNE's fun day is this Saturday, May 31st, in Berwick, ME. I have planned and organized this event for the last few years. This year we are having a canine first aid seminar, intro to birds, agility, rally, obedience, and flyball. I am hoping that it will be a successful day and that we will have many dogs show up! It is usually one of the better attended events of the year for the club. Hopefully I will be able to post some nice pictures of the event after we get home!

Hi Kim,

I have been keeping up with Kyler. I am so glad that she arrived in Indiana safely. I hope that everything with the breeding goes well.

Yeh, Kim! MHP has landed. Nice work on the plane ticket and the direct flight. The thought of flying our dogs makes me nervous. Hopefully, she actually likes her new boyfriend and he won't just love her and leave her... oh wait, she gets to leave him.

Good luck with the Fun Day! At least you've good plenty of good birds! Think positive thoughts for us... we'll be up at Sharpe's trying to finish up Team V -- Bronx chapter's HT certificates. Hopefully no 'birds from hell' this time around!

Thanks everyone for your kind words! I was very nervous about flying Kyler, there was a pit in my stomach all day! Now we just have to make it back safely!

Good Luck to the Bronx team on their go for their titles! I am sure they will rock!
