I travelled up to Poole today to meet Jane, who visited us a little while ago and is having Pi. Due to bad weather. They won't now be travelling back until tomorrow, but Jane had found a lovely place to stay for the night with Pi, that specialise in accomodation for people with dogs. Hope their first night together goes well and all goes well getting back to Jersey tomorrow.
He coped very well with the nearly 3 hour trip up to Poole today in the crate in the back of the car. He slept all the way. I have done a lot of driving Pi around on his own in the crate in the back of our car in preparation for his trip to Jersey. I gave Jane the bed he travelled up in and put it in the crate in her car. We then went for a little walk around Hamworthy Park, it was quite blustery and a bit damp and on returning to her car, he was happy to jump in to that crate and seemed pretty settled, so hopefully he will travel well tomorrow back to Jersey on the ferry.
Never easy rehoming a dog, you do feel a sense of shame. He is such a lovely dog, and just a pain that he has developed such an undershot jaw, that breeding from him is out of the question, but in the long run, I know he is going to have a wonderful life on Jersey with Jane. He is going to be the most super companion/family dog.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
― Samuel Butler
