Packed and Ready to Go!

Well folks, after 6 months of livin' the life in Morro Bay, CA El Guapo is just hours away from joining his family in Maui, Hawaii.

We got one of those Flip Video thingies so hopefully I get it figured out on the 5 hour plane ride and will have some video to post!

 Gunther: "Dude, I heard chicks wear coconut shells on their boobs in Hawaii!!"

El Guapo has accumulated quite a bit of stuff in 6 months..

No matter what, he's still not 100% sure about the 'jail bag'. At least he get's to fly with me and not in baggage. Try convincing him of that.

Gunther not too happy about letting me pack one of his tennis balls for Guapo, even though he has at least 20 floating around the house.

Guapo got the memo to take a nap since we're leaving at 2:30 a.m. Poor thing was so afraid we'd leave his tennis ball behind, he fell asleep with it in his mouth... LOL!

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers that our trip to Hawaii goes smoothly.

Michelle & Brutus, I can't even tell you the amount of tissue boxes I've gone through this week...

Fostering is very rewarding but it's also tough when they go to their family. Specially one as lovable as El Guapo.

Guapo's family (Scott & Andrea) promise to send a lot of pictures so one way or another we'll get regular updates of boy!

Hi there new friends! I am sorry it has taken me so long to get over here. And now El Guapo is leaving! I am thinking good thoughts for a smooth trip. (And we are very jealous that he gets to live in Hawaii!!) I can tell you will all miss him a lot.
Sending puggy hugs and kisses!
