This morning we put this little guy on a plane to Duluth, Minnesota.
It is so hard to let them go!
We spend so much time with them.
They become our kids.
Actually when Flower Boy and I are talking to the pups, we refer to ourselves as Grandma and Grandpa!
Scooter Star is the first, of all our puppies, we have flown.
Normally we deliver the puppies to their new homes, if sold in Oklahoma.
We, also, meet for pickup in states surrounding Oklahoma.
Scooter's new momma saw this photo on a site, where we had him for sale.
She said he sole her heart and she had to purchase him.
We believe it!
Scooter will be the mascot of a daycare with lots of kids to love on him.
He is the perfect laid back puppy for this job.
He will also have 180 acres of property to run and play.
This little guy will have a wonderful life.
Today will be a very long travel day for Scooter.
We left the ranch around 7 this morning, for the drive to the Oklahoma City airport.
Sadly, Scooter got sick in the car!
Bless his sweet little heart!
I feel bad for him and imminently called his momma to inform her.
Thankfully, the clerk, at the pet drop off, was kind enough to allow Scooter to hang with her until it was time for him to board the plane.
Once she saw how well mannered Scooter is, she was happy to let him out of his crate.
I do hope this allowed Scooter to settle a little before boarding the plane.
All of the pups have a few days of separation anxiety, after leaving us.
It is just hard to leave their litter mates, Grandma and Grandpa, and all things normal to them.
When Scooter arrives, in his new home, he may take a bit more time to settle than those puppies we hand deliver.
Flying is stressful enough on humans, let alone an 11 week old puppy.
Scooter boarded the airplane and prepared for take off around 11:40am.
He will fly to Saint Paul, where he will have a layover.
The cargo crew will get Scooter out of his crate, walk him around, allow him to potty, feed and water him before placing him on his next flight to Duluth.
Scooter will arrive in Duluth around 4pm, this afternoon.
I know, I won't stop worrying until I have heard from Scooter's momma, telling me he is safe in her arms.
I am sure his momma is on pens and needles too!
Prayers for safe travel and an easy transition, for Scooter Star, to his new home.
