Day 1 Photos/video

Posted on


Okay! A few photos!! And a collection of short clips in one video. He has had a VERY busy day. I picked him up at noon and after a short bit of fussing, he slept on the hour drive home. Then he spent the next couple hours exploring the yard and house and finding out his pen area has goodies! Then he had his first vet visit. He was SO tired from all the exploring that he kept trying to fall asleep ๐Ÿ™‚ When we got home, he gave me a stool sample and my husband took that in while Voodoo got a nap and I made a dent in photo editing. He just finished exploring the yard and house and playing tug and now he’s sleeping on my lap as I type. Whew! He’s a busy boy and I love it! We’ll get started with actual training sessions tomorrow. I just wanted to spend today getting to know him. He’s definitely food motivated and his nose works really well! He was in my arms and sniffed out the treat container on the vet’s counter ๐Ÿ™‚ย

He’s doing great! He has explored the yard and house, Dazzle is totally ignoring him (which is not a bad thing) even in the office where he has wandered in and out, we had a play session outside and now we’re getting ready for his vet check up appointment. I’ll post photos/video as soon as I get a chance. Watching him explore is a full time job ๐Ÿ™‚

Will get Voodoo tomorrow

Posted on

They are able to get to Chicago and then Laura’s husband is going to drive up and get them- bless him! Since they will be getting home so late I’ll be picking up Voodoo tomorrow. Bummed it won’t be tonight, but glad she was able to work out a way home after such a LONG day of traveling! And it really will be better to get him home in the daytime rather than middle of the night. ๐Ÿ™‚ Though I suspect Laura arranged the storm just so she can spend more time with him!

Weather delays and cancelled flights

Seems the smooth sailing was too good to last. A storm over Chicago has delayed the flight from Toronto to Chicago and caused the final flight of their journey to get cancelled!ย  She’s looking for other options for getting to Indi.

On his first flight!

Just got an update text that they are on their first flight and he is napping in his crate at Laura’s feet waiting for take off.ย  I sure hope it goes well, because he has 3 more flights today!ย  At least the first flight is really short.

Photo updates

Necessity is the mother of invention, right.ย  So, I figured out how to save photos from a text message!ย  Don’t laugh, it was only at the end of last year that I figured out how to text ๐Ÿ™‚ย  But here are a few photos Laura took and sent as updates:

In the arms of a friend

Voodoo has left the breeder and is now with my friend Laura who will be transporting him to me tomorrow.ย  They have a LONG day of flights and layovers. Help me pray for a safe and uneventful trip for them both. SOOO looking forward to picking him up at the airport tomorrow night!ย  Well, just after midnight on Thursday. They went for a walk, he got to try out his travel crate (fell asleep in it) and is now napping on her lap in the hotel.ย  If I can figure out how to save and post the adorable photos she’s messaging me, I’ll do that ๐Ÿ™‚ For now, this one is from the breeder.
