Jackson preparing to fly

I have been busy getting my beagle ready for his first ever flight. We have purchased the airline regulation kennel, we have got some homeopathic stuff to "relax" him for the big day (and Mom too!). I have started getting him used to his new kennel and now he seems to go in there all by himself, without any coaxing from me. Much to my relief, he likes it and seems to enjoy chilling in there.

He has almost all of his vaccinations.......his last set of needles is next week. Poor dog has been through alot for the big move to Mexico. I think I have stressed more about him and how he will cope on his first flight and how he will adjust to our new life in Mexico than I have about myself.
He absolutely loves the water, but I ask myself, will he love ocean water just as much? He has only ever swam in fresh water lakes like the one in the picture below in the Rocky Mountains.

That has to be the cutest and happiest beagle ever! Mr. Dog is very happy living in Mexico. He hates water but loves going to the beach. I think the only thing that really bugs him is the fact that Mexicans have a love affair with firecrackers.

Thanks Theresa. Yes, I hope he adjusts alright in Mexico. I am glad to hear that your dog is doing well.
I checked out your blogs - definitely going to add you to my blog list. Cooking is one of my passions so I look forward to trying some of your recipes!

Action Jaxson will be fine!! Take Kirov as a case study. She had to spend a month in quarantine to come all they way here on a 18 hour flight. I took her to the beach and she ran straight down into the water. He is looking a little thin.. And promise me you WONT give him sedatives for the flight. They do more harm than good. He will be ok. Its a relatively short flight. I am so excited for you both!!!
