Well after spending 45 days in the states we are back in Germany. Have to say I didn't want to come back, not back to Germany but back to work LMAO.
The dogs did great, but I am not happy with American Airlines and will never fly with them again. In Dallas they took them off about 20 minutes after we landed and then they sat on the tarmac until all the luggage was off and then took them away. United and Alaska/Horizon have ALWAYS taken the pets off first and carted them away and pets are always last to get on and don't come out to the plane till about 10 minutes before they are put on.
When we got back to Germany, I came down the stairs to the baggage area and could hear Tiggy screaming, of course this had me freaked because he's NEVER done anything like that. So we rush through customs and I run over to where the boys are and then see why Tiggy is screaming, some lady was talking to them and that got him riled up. But as soon as he saw me and I talked to him his screams went to the loudest yodel he could muster lmao and he just kept yodeling and making baroo noises OMG was it funny. Reggie was wiggling so much I thought he was gonna knock his crate over. I took Reggie out and gave him water and then gave Tiggy water but made him wait to get out of his crate, mostly because I was still helping Dave with the luggage and Reggie will (and did) just sit right by the cart his crate was on.
They both were very happy to get outside and pee and poo LOL they dragged me to the grass outside the airport. Though as we waited for our ride we had to dig out sweaters for the boys because it was about 35 degrees out. Dave ended up picking up Tiggy and zipping him up in his jacket. For Reggie we put one of Dave's sweatshirts on him LOL, Reggie looking so cute!! Then when we got home they had to run around everywhere and smell everything.
Only thing that wasn't good about being home is we have one VERY unhappy kitty. She at first hide when I went to our friends house to pick her up. She wasn't very happy to see Tiggy and Reggie. That part I don't understand because our friends have a boston terrier/cocker spaniel mix, and Lizzy is just as energetic as Tiggy. Pigmy actually growled her unhappiness about us leaving her for that long. She did warm up after about an hour and got out of her tree and started wandering around again. It took a little longer for her to stop hissing at Tiggy, but Reggie just pinned her down and groomed her (she growled but that was it, growled more when Tiggy helped). But she is fine and pulling out her toys and scattering them around LOL.
And that my friends is the adventure of my first day home, well there was sleeping for about 9.5 hours because we didn't sleep on the plane. We laid down about 08:30 am and got completely about 18:00 , I had gotten up at about 16:00 and took the boys out to potty and run around a bit then crawled back in bed because I had a migraine. Then after we got up we went to eat and then went and got Pigmy.
