Picking a puppy up from the airport...
Okay, my little guy's flight arrives in 6 hours. The airport is about 1 hour and 15 minutes away in Austin, TX.
I have never picked up an airport puppy before and I was wondering what to do? The breeder emailed me with the flight number, his reference number or something, and told me to call this one phone number if I need help getting him from cargo.
1. What the HECK is cargo? I always thought I'd be picking him up from that little thing that spits out luggage after your flight arrives and it goes in circles... but then I realized anyone could just take my dog and that probably would be a very BOUNCY ride LOL. Does anyone have any idea of where puppies are typically picked up in a "normal" airport? It's with Delta.
2. How early would you recommend being there? The flight gets in at 5:11pm.
3. What would you bring for the car ride home? I don't want him to be stuck in the same little crate he was shipped in for 6 hours. Maybe a clothes basket? Toys? A towel? Some bully sticks?!!?
I think that's about it. Unless anyone else has any other advice to give. Thanks! (btw he is 7 weeks & 5 days old today)
