Hi friends! We are busy enjoying our long weekend, but I wanted to update you all on the latest step we have crossed off our “to do before moving” list. We bought our plane tickets!! We will fly out of San Jose on Thursday, August 15th at 8:30 am and arrive in Honolulu at 10:55 am. The humans’ tickets are all reserved and paid for, and I have reservations made for the dogs as checked baggage, although we don’t actually pay for them until we are at the airport checking in. This whole move feels REALLY real now that we have our one-way tickets! It’s exciting but a bit scary at the same time.
We also have our second travel crate, graciously donated to us by a Handsome Dan’s Rescue board member who had no use for it. It is older and needs nuts and bolts to secure the two halves together, but it will do the job just fine and Lexi fits into it pretty well. I will clean it up this weekend so she can start spending a little time in it every week (although, she already trots in and out of it on her own). Zev is starting to get comfortable in his new crate – I gave him a Kong while he was in it the other day and he was pretty happy.
Now that we have our arrival date on Oahu, we can start to plan our road trip from RI to CA and get serious about finding housing. Onward we go!
This last picture of Lexi and I was taken yesterday at Seven Arrows Farm in Seekonk, MA. Judy and Miche, two very lovely, kind people with adopted pitties of their own, “babysat” Lexi this past fall while her foster mom was on vacation. Lexi had an awesome time at the farm and with everyone there, and yesterday we went back to the tea room for a visit! We had a lovely time and everyone was happy to see Lexi. If you are ever in the area, please visit the crew at Seven Arrows and enjoy a nice cup of tea!
That’s it for us today. We will have some more updates soon! Hugs and kisses from Lexi and Zev!
