Boy oh boy, it's been pretty busy around my house! For the past few weeks, we've been trying to "time the market" right for buying plane tickets to Florida. Alas, it didn't work, unfortunately those darn prices have been skyrocketing lately! But today was the day, we grabbed some tickets and now we are "officially" flying to Orlando for a family wedding right after Christmas!
To think, little old me will be up, up, up in the air in just 2 short months! Whoa! Crazy! Have any of you little dudes flown in cabin? If you have, Domeek and I would really appreciate some info on how you all survived! ;-) If you don't know the blog, DogJaunt, we highly recommend you taking a look if you plan on traveling (boat, plane, train, auto) with your furry baby! Mary-Alice and Chloe (her beautiful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) travel very frequently and have wonderful travel guides to read through along with hotel/transportation reviews and a whole bunch of really interesting things! That's how we got to know about my Sturdi bag, my 3-in-1 harness, and even my Snoozer Lookout booster seat! I guess, I owe them my safety and Domeek's sanity when we travel! ;-)
Unfortunately we will be traveling on American Airlines, which has a lovely bar across the underside of each seat, so we can't really chance my Sturdi bag's measurements. This meant that we had to get a me a new carrier. Luckily Sherpa has partnered with many US airlines and created the Guaranteed On Board program, which states that as long as you follow all the steps outlined, if you are denied access on the flight due to the carrier, Sherpa will reimburse you the entire flight cost and pet travel expenses. That's not a bad guarantee, huh?
So, this is the one we just bought!
I like the color...it goes with my fur! ;-)
Well, it's Treasure Thursday, which means that there's a bunch of pups that need our love and attention!
First up, update time!
- The gorgeous Noble, from Northern Lights Sled Dog Rescue, is still available! If you are interested in this boy, please visit his page!
- Wonderful Jack, from Golden State Greyhound Adoption, is also still available (however, one of the pups, Debbie, who I photo featured below him got adopted) so please visit their site and check him out!
- Finally, Hayden, from the Beagle Rescue League, is still available and she can be seen here!
My first featured dog's name is Sherman, who is a gorgeous Australian Shepard, currently being fostered with DASH in Dallas, Texas! Their mission is clear: to rescue abandoned dogs from local shelters and match them with loving families and permanent homes in Dallas, North Texas and beyond. The group focuses primarily on Australian shepherds and cattle dogs.
My second featured pup's name is Ansel, who is being adopted through the Schnauzer Lover Rescue, located in Alabama, but has fosters through all the southern states! They are devoted to finding homes for all Miniature Schnauzers. They help abandoned and unwanted dogs and those whose families need to relinquish their pet!
Look at his beard and mustache, aren't they awesome!? If you would like to learn more about Ansel, please visit his personal page and if you are interested in any of their other awesome mini Schnauzers, please take a look at all their available pups!
My third, and final, featured pup's name is Rider, who is Wire Fox Terrier, and is currently being adopted through the Abandoned Terrier Rescue Association of Southern California, located in the Los Angles area. This rescue specifically works with Wire Fox Terriers, Welsh Terriers, Lakeland Terriers, and Airedale Terriers.
If you are interested in learning more about the awesome Rider or any other terrier that the group has, then please visit their available terriers' page and search for "Rider"! The only concern with this rescue group is that they only adopt out in their local area, so please beware if you are out of state!
As always, thank you for taking a look at Treasure Thursday! Have an absolutely wonderful day!!
