I'm so excited! I can't believe how good this is!!
I made appointments for the dogs to be groomed. Two went this morning and the other three are going tomorrow. I chose Joey and Max to take today. This morning I drove to town very slowly with Maxey on my lap so he could look out the window. If you remember, he gets sick and up-chucks, either from motion sickness or, more likely, from nervous stress. He didn't on the day I brought him home, a three hour plus drive, but since then, the farthest he has been able to make it without barfing is a 5-6 mile round trip.
I was prepared for the worst. I just knew he was going to lose it on the way in because it is about 11-12 miles. When I put him in my lap, looking out the window and give him fresh air, he does pretty well, so that was my choice for the trip, the above positioning and driving very slowly. It is fortunately mostly over a dirt road with little traffic.
We made it to the groomers place with no .... NOT ONE .... problem!!! Awwwwwwright!! I left the boys with the groomer, came home for a couple hours and went back to pick up my gorgeous, good smelling babies. Oh, they look marvelous! Then we stopped to leave some things for Linda that I brought to her from Trader Joe's, visited a few minutes and headed home. Max decided to sit in the seat beside me and got all the way home without incident! A round trip of about 22-24 miles, four times what he has done in the past!
NASA, the eagle has landed!
I'll do pictures of all the kids tomorrow. Stay tuned!
