Quick Rewind - The Trip Down

Wow, I can't believe that Rudy's been gone for (almost) a whole month. I'll be looking forward to the "phone call" or "email" soon... giving me news on whether Rudy passed his medicals or not.

I'm doing a "quick rewind" and posting the pictures of the trip down the FL (for dropping Rudy off).
He was such a good boy, and slept most of the way - waking up sometimes, to find out what was going on.
When we picked up miss Cupcake (the mini piglet), Rudy was very calm - and didn't mind sharing the back with her (though she stayed in the crate). I know he was wishing he could have spent more time with her, they sure would have been great buds!
All in All, Rudy did wonderful - though the trip back (without him) was quite lonely.

Rudy is definitely missed here, but I wish him the best of luck with his training.

Just so hard letting them move on with their lives after they've been part of yours for so long.

I am anxiously waiting to see when you hear something from SEGD. Since Rudy went IFT 5 days before Joey, you may hear something a few days before we do. Keep posting!

Oh you must be missing him so much. Hopefully Cupcake is keeping you busy. Looking forward to learning of Rudy's progress.

My Human said to tell you that this is good practice for when you have children and it comes empty nest time. ;)
