Bijoux's Big Adventure

The Dog Whisperer Playing Around Relaxing at Home Flying Home

Bijoux and Nedda traveled to New York City by airplane for a Coton Get Together the weekend of September 19th- October 2nd, 2006.  It was the first time since Bijoux was a puppy that she flew on an airplane... of course, she didn't have a clue as to what was happening but as long as she was with mommy she was fine...

Before the big day, Nedda bought her a new crate that was recommended by her Coton friends... called a SturdiBag and is by the SturdiProducts, Inc. company... we put the crate where her old Vari-kennel was kept (behind my desk chair) and she would go into it on her own which made us VERY HAPPY!  So at the least it was a familiar place for her to be... complete with her own embroidered towel (her name and breed) and a cloth that I use when I do my run/walk so it would have my scent on it.

and here she is waiting at the airport....

and in the crate at the airport.....

Once on the plane she had to be placed under the seat but we were really lucky, we were able to switch seats to an empty seat and then she was able to be on the seat next to Nedda for the entire flight... On the way back to Florida on Monday there were only three empty seats on the plane and we were fortunate enough to have one of them. Here are some pictures of her "mushed" under the seat....and on the seat next to me.

She didn't get to see the view out the window but Nedda did.....

Auntie Valerie was kind enough to invite us to stay with her and Bruce and Barney!!! We decided we better put a belly band on Mr. Gorgeous (aka Barney) and also decided to get some "panties" for Bijoux... she had never had the need to wear them before but this way we would not have to worry about leaving her alone and having her have an accident... I was so glad we found an adorable pair of denim "jeans" for her. 

Barney and Bijoux met for the first time out in the back yard...
It didn't take Bijoux long to make herself right at home.
Here, Valerie is giving Barney some last minute instructions....
I think Barney was telling Bijoux how much he enjoyed seeing her and was asking her for a kiss.....
What did you say, Mommy? I have to be nice to Bijoux? Okay, but I sure hope she is inflates better than this....
Hmmm, something smells good!!!  Looks cute too....

Its time for bed after a long day of new adventures.....Auntie Valerie had this special bed ready and waiting for me.... It was sooo comfortable....

I think I need to be brushed out before bed, don't you?

Nitey Nite!

When I went to bed, I put her in my bed...she spent each night with me, either in her little bed or on one of the pillows next to me.....
