Aloha, Bon Voyage...

After many months, I never thought this day would come. Jax has a plane reservation on April 30th. I was going to try for this weekend, but with the holidays, I just wasn't comfortable putting him on a plane.

It is kind of bittersweet after everything that we have been through, but it is time for him to go. Actually it has been time for a while now. The rest of the family made it Honolulu and they have a house with a fenced in yard.

I have been a nervous wreck trying to make all the preparations for him to go. Being that he has to go in the giant kennel, not every plane can take that type of cargo. I will make the 5 1/2 hour drive to Chicago to get him on the plane though. He will leave Chicago at 9:00 a.m. on April 30th and arrive in Honolulu at 5:50 p.m. the same day. Because the Department of Agriculture is gone when his plane arrives, he will have to stay in the kennel at the airport. His family can pick him up first thing Sunday morning.

Now keep your paws crossed that we can get our Certificate of Health on Monday! Be thinking of me as I make the trek north and send him on his way!


  1. I wish you much good luck on your journey, and good luck for Jax, too! I bet he'll be thrilled to see his family. At least, I hope so!

  2. So glad to hear the good news. I know you've waiting for a long time. Hope you and Jax have a safe trip. Paw Prayers for both of you.

  3. This is so admirable. I wish you all the best... both of you, and I pray traveling mercies for him!
