Well, he's finally here!!! This is Vinnie... I drove to Chicago to meet his plane (he flew in from Portland) Tuesday night and the two of us have been going non stop since then. He is doing fantastic. He got off the plane and we took him out to the parking lot to play a bit before our four hour ride in the van back home. He was playing and retrieving a ball of tape off of his travel crate while there were trucks coming and going in the cargo area of the airport and he was not bothered at all! He has been going to work with me the last couple days and then to agility class with me last night (we worked on play, focus and tugging and he was awesome!) He is going to be a LOT of fun!!
