If I can coordinate this with Jerry or Linda, I might be able to handle the first leg, ideally handing off at my own base of FDK (Frederick, Maryland). If I can coordinate this with other transports in order to haul more dogs per gallon, so much the better.
One question: Would he do better to travel in a crate so that he doesn't aggravate his knees climbing up and down out of airplanes? Ordinarily I take big dogs harnessed to the seat belt, but I'm a little worried about his having to clamber in and out. Of course, he can be lifted unless he objects.
Let me know. My name is David, and you can reach me at DJK3737T@EarthLink.net
