The Vacation Saga

We managed to get out of the north on Monday, June 13th as planned, despite some pretty poor weather.  We got to the airport and all of our luggage made it through along with Toby.  The people from the kennel were also there to meet us and pick up Toby from us.  With that all settled we headed to our hotel with Rusty, dropped him off in the room and took off to see a movie… actually two movies: Star Wars and Madagascar, with a stop at Best Buy on the way…There began my obsession over iPods.  As for the movies, I wasn’t too impressed with Madagascar in the least but Star Wars was pretty good.  I have to say, it felt really good to see a movie on the big screen again.  It was a pretty late night but it was worth it.

The next day we flew in to Ottawa and the nightmare began… Collapse )

The Saga Continues

So we left PEI and got in to Toronto for an overnight stay before moving on to Winnipeg.  In Winnipeg we stayed overnight and were reunited with Toby the next morning. I was so happy to see the little bugger and he seemed equally happy to see us.  We all hopped on the plane and headed north.  When we arrived in Churchill they told us the weather was too bad to go any further and they were canceling the flight.  We also found out that our neighbour’s epileptic dog was still stuck there but one of the guys seemed to know him.  The same guy helped us get a hotel room and even drove us over… just as we got there the airport called us back and said they were going anyway.  We pulled in to the airport and the pilots were not happy.  When one of said “So we’re going to try afterall?” the response was “Well, I guess we don’t have a say in it either way.”  Yikes!  That should have been our first sign of trouble...
