  1. He’s Back

    June 8, 2009 by MyEye

    He’s back. He didn’t go in his crate — 14 hours. He relieved himself outside the cargo office and jumped in the car. At first he seemed a little confused, probably jet lag. When we turned onto our street, he sat up and began looking out the window. We came in through the garage and he ran for the water bowl. I think he drank a gallon. He ran out the dog door and cruised the back yard, came in and cruised the house; rolled wildly on the carpet and in all the dog beds. Mine, mine, mine! I fixed dinner for Chase and Inca who stood by, looking perhaps a bit dismayed — he’s back? Then a trachea for dessert. Chase is home, the sparkle is there. I love my silly puppy.



    A trachea snack — yummy!


    My bed, my bed, my bed . . .

  2. The Eagle Has Landed (in Houston)

    June 8, 2009 by MyEye

    Chase’s flight from Newark has landed in Houston.  It won’t be long now . . .

    Here’s a photo of Chase and Cynnie in which you can see more of her face :>)  Boy, this dog sure gets a lot of lovin’.

    UPDATE:  Well, all these posts, after Cynnie taking Chase to the Buffalo airport, have been incorrect.  There were adverse weather conditions at Newark, so the flight from Buffalo was held until almost 11:00.  Chase missed his scheduled connection from Newark to Houston and was instead placed on an intercontinental flight coming in from Dublin, Ireland.  He will not arrive in Houston until 4:20 (CDT).  His flight to Albuquerque is still scheduled to depart at 5:35, but won’t arrive in Albuquerque until just before 7:00 tonight.  So, the Eagle has not yet landed in Houston.  I do not like changes!


  3. In the Air Again

    Chase is once again aloft.  His flight left Newark NJ four minutes late, but there must be a tail wind because it is expected to land in Houston two minutes early at 1:22 Central Daylight time.  Maybe he’s been wagging hard enough to supplement the engines.  He’ll hang around the cargo area until his flight leaves for Albuquerque at 5:35.  He’s scheduled to arrive here at 6:35, and you’d better believe I’ll be standing in the cargo office waiting for him.  Whoo Hoo!

  4. He’s In Newark

    I spoke with Cynnie this morning.  Chase slept with Sally last night.  He tried out Paul’s bed, but apparently found it not as appealing as sleeping with the woman of the house.  This morning he and Paul went on a long walk before Cynnie took him to the airport.  All was well until Cynnie found out the air freight was not pre-paid (I’d tried, but because the total weight was unknown, could not do it).  I’d sent American dollars to Shelley — biting my nails hoping the International Priority envelope wouldn’t disappear.  Unfortunately, Shelley left the money on her dining room hutch and never thought of it again — till I called her a few minutes ago.  So, Cynnie (who gets a HUGE gold star) paid for Chase’s flight, and Shelley is sending her the American dollars today.

    Chase was delighted to meet all the Continental Airlines folks this morning.  They talked and played with him.  Cynnie gave him a good bye scritch and went home.  She loved how happy he is (don’t we all).  I emailed her the photo below to ensure she’ll always remember her encounter with our Chase.

    He’ll be leaving Newark, heading for Houston in about 30 minutes.  I cannot wait to get my hands on my little guy!
