I'm bought a dog from a very reputable breeder and he's being shipped across the country. It was scheduled for today... but upon arrival to the
airport last the breeder had to reschedule because the stupid vet receptionist put the wrong date on his travel paper causing us to reschedule. It was
past the 24hour cancellation period so we (the breeder and I) had to repay for shipping. After receiving furious phone calls from both of us, the vet
reimbursed all examination, shot fees, etc. It almost made having to pay twice for shipping free... which I split with breeder because he's been so
nice me. The airport is 1 1/2 hrs away from his house and he's making four trips without complaining or charging extra ....It's the least I can do!
So the puppy is coming in at eleven AM tomorrow.... my nephew has to have an emergency tooth extraction at 11am. He's terrified and in extreme pain
and I'm the only one who can take him. To make matters worse we have no car...so we have to take a train to the dentist then a cab. Then I have to
take him home before going to the airport. Then I have to CAB again to Laguardia. This could make me 4-5 hours late to pick-up my puppy and he's
already gonna be in his crate for over ten hours. I can't reschedule to dentist appointment because that would be just wrong. My breeders is on the
way to the airport with no phone and I have no way of reaching him. Plus, I don't want to have to schedule ANOTHER flight.
What do I do? I was thinking of calling a pet transport service to pick up the dog and bring him to me... but it's my name on the forms... would the
airport even release to them? I know the airport isn't going to feed him or take him for a walk.... or would they?
I have no idea what's going to happen with the dog tomorrow. Any suggestions.
Edit- Or maybe a transport service could hold him until I can get to him??? They'd probably take better care than the airport.
