What an assortment of beauties needing to catch a ride to Houston--and all but the Tibetan Terriers from high-kill shelters in S. Louisiana!! Due to the size of some of these dogs, I feel it is quite likely we will have to split them up into several trips/plane loads.
The crates they will require are bulky and take up a lot of room. Only the Spitz is what I consider to be small enough to fit most anywhere in the plane.
UPDATE, 05/24/13: Tibetan Terriers and Beagles traveled to Houston via ground on Sunday, 05/19. Wade Roberts should be coming today to pick up Gizmo, Jester, Bingo and Jazz. This will complete this mission.
After several days of uncooperative weather between Houston and New Iberia, Wade was finally able to get in this a.m. (5/26) and whisk the 4 beauties off to their new "digs" in Houston. Thanks for hanging in there, Wade!
