  UP UP AND AWAY

Sharon with Sam and Chris (our pilot) with Marty - I think!!!!

Well up up and away once again but longer trip this time as I had to stop off in Guernsey originally to deliver a dog but unfortunately also to pick one up that was to be returned. Also one for Jersey.

Set off in cloudy but thankfully windless weather up to Peterborough once again to pick up two black beauties, Sam and Marty, two Brambleberry boys. Sam a three year old and Marty not two until next month. I was scared still I was going to get them mixed up but Sam who has now gone to live with Saffi and her mum Marilyn had a distinct characteristic, silly ears!!

Sharon was there as usual but her partner Jo is seriously ill so it is very difficult time for her, looking after her kennels with 100 dogs, and toing and froing to the hospital every day but being the lovely lady she is still managed to deliver the dogs to us.

It was cold in Peterborough even though we only get off the plane and straight into the building. Chris and I have our bacon butties and a cuppa then it is time to depart once again.

Marty went straight to sleep on the plane, Sam was a little worried but settled in the end.

We got to Guernsey about 2.30, Michael was there with Blue and Monty, they are such fine looking dogs and it was nice to see them all. Saffi and her mum soon arrived and after the 'photoshoot' took their boy home to start his new life.

Then Bud arrived sadly his owners have given him up after a year and a half. He is a bit of a woos but so gentle, didn't want to get on the plane so it was a big heave ho!!!

Budd now one of the Sanctuary gang

 

Marty had been steaming up the plane windows whilst we were gone and adding his nose art to them. They both settled and in no time at all we were in Jersey. Sarah and Carl were there to meet their new arrival and took him home to start his new life.

So another trip under my belt was so lucky once again with the weather. Bit of turbulance and flew into some thick cloud but Chris assured me he could see where he was going!!!!!!

Thanks Chris for such smooth landings and Sharon thinking of you.

Till next time
