Hey Pals,

We have some photos of Sparky's trip from the breeder, to Mumsie's house, to our house!

Hehehehe, Sparky got to ride in Lacie's crate going to Mumsie's house on Tuesday the 30th and to the airport the next morning:  (don't tell Lacie)

Here's Sparky in Mumsie's yard:

He got to play with an orange & pawple tennis ball:

And run with Mumsie's flip flops:


They left from the Pittsburgh Airport on Wednesday.  Here he is between flights at the Minneapolis airport.  There wasn't time to find some grass for a potty break, so Mumsie took him into the baby changing room.  She put down a pee pad and he went potty right away!

Here's Sparky watching the airplanes and things through the window:

He's learning everything he can about planes since he's studying for his pilot's license.  Soon he'll be flying Angel Butchy's yellow plane and pawple plane.

Sparky and Mumsie's plane touching down in Waterloo, Iowa, just 9 miles south of our house in Janesville:

Oh My Dog, it's Mumsie & Sparky!!

Meeting my Mama outside of the airport:

Mama made this and ironed it onto her tshirt she is wearing:

Here I am waiting for Mumsie, Sparky & Mama to get home:

They're here!!

Mumsie with Sparky!

We had a long day...............................

Katie, Sparky, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby, Hootie & Zeek

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I think Katie's tail tells the story of Sparky's trip from PA to IA!



Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh that Khyra is just all about the tail...now, I have no idea why Mumsie is all leaky lookin' at that last picture...I mean, seriously, Katie, are you really going to let him SNUGGLE? Well, I suppose with that adorable way he's got his paws wrapped around you that you don't have much choice!

Let's back up a minute. You mean my crate was USED BY A PUPPY??? He was IN OUR HOUSE? Slid on our floor? PEED IN OUR YARDIE?

Lacie passes out cold on above mentioned floor. So does Stan. Scruffy, just keeps repeating LOOK AT THE BALL... IT'S JUST LIKE MINE!

So Katie, we give our heartiest welcome to Sparky in bloggieland. We know you will be a wonderful big sissy and that you two dogs and kitties have the best parents and home ever! And Angels Butchy and Snickers are watching out for ya!

Kisses from all of us...

Mumsie and the Terriers!

You are so cute Sparky and it looks like you're snuggled right in. You had a big trip!

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Wow, what an exciting trip. Wow Wow, you got to ride on an airplane. Welcome Welcome!

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Hi Katie,
Your baby brother is very cute. I know you and your Mommy and Daddy are super busy taking care of him now. Myrtle the pet purse is begging and begging to become a Mommy. Y'all are the only people that I thought could help her. She and her husband could come up to visit y'all. Mommy is very protective of her, and she wants Myrtle's leg to be fixed. Myrtle has a broken leg, and she wants change purses. She is a pet purse, and her babies would be change purses. Take care of the baby, and when you have time see if this could be done. Play well and have fun.
Sally Ann

Petey said...

Sparky is just adorable - I'm surprised Mumsie didn't keep him and try to pass off Scruffy for the new puppy. Love that last photo with his big sis. Thanks so much for your kind words for Petey and me - I know you've experienced those awful moments with your own loved ones and it really helped us through some dark moments, knowing we had friends sending us hope and love.

Good luck with the new baby boy!

Jane and Petey
