Toto, I guess we're not in Mayemphis anymore...

Well, we thought we'd hang around Mayemphis for a while until our boy, Gussie, recovered and then cruise on up the river to pay another visit to the whippet waggle in Pa duke ah -- but all of a sudden we were on Aire Ruby, celebrating the carrier's one-year anniversary. After an exciting pawtini- and snack-filled flight with lots of our pals, we found ourselves on top of the Empire State Building in Noo Yawk City (all courtesy of Asta's amazing talents!!).

And then -- there we were, looking down from the Chrysler Building -- a dizzifying experience.

We were all set to travel on to Paris with the gang -- but then we got an urgent message from the folks wondering why the Port of Mayemphis had called them about damages to the paddle wheel dock -- so we thought we'd better get home tout de suite to explain.

How did we get home? Why, when we learned that the koi family in Iowa was being threatened by our Heron-cam's koi-loving cousin, we sent out an all points bulletin to our own reliable HC. He talked to his cousin who decided to leave the koi and fly up to NYC to pick us up.

So, all is well that ends well: Gussie is doing fine after his surgery. When we explained that we were in a hurry to see a sick friend, the kind Port Authority dropped all charges. The folks have forgiven our impetuosness in causing the damages to the dock (we are, after all, terriers). We had a wonderful time in NYC celebrating Aire Ruby's anniversary. And, hopefully, we averted koi tragedy and set another heron on the right path.

And we have this wonderful souvenir, again, thanks to Asta, to remember the celebration by.

Wasn't it a great time on AireRuby. I so enjoy the trips that I get to take with all my DWB friends.
Glad that Gus is doing well and you are out of trouble.
By the way, I think we have another one of those squeaking light bulbs. I'm sure we could send it your way if we could find it. It just disappeared one day. Imagine that!

Deetz said...

I am so glad you all had such a pawsome time....I have been reading all about it..that air ruby sure is great!!!!

Gus said...

You sure have been busy boys while I have been just laying around recovering. Glad you could help out Butchy and Snickers...their mama gets sooooo mad at that nasty bird!

You guys have a super set of parents: I just can't imagine how long I would be grounded if I ran a paddlewheel aground. Just bumpin the gussiemobile gets me a few days!

Thanks for coming and tending to muzzer. She can be a pain, but so far she is the best one I've got.

Hi Jake and Just Harry!

Loved the photos of all of you celebrating Aire Ruby's first anniversary! And good to hear that everything is well at home too...that was quite a close call with the Koi-loving heron!


Joe Stains said...

I sure hope you guys didn't get in too much trouble! The trip was so fun though, it might have been worth it!

Simba and Jazzi said...

What an amazing adventure! You really did get to the top of the empire state building.

Noo Yawk City. Egads you two are definitely metropolitan dogs.

We are breathing easier now Gustav is heading away, but we are worried about our paw-pals on the Gulf Coast.

Hope your Maa and Paa are keeping an eye on Hanna.
