|pyratemom||Raina flew from Germany and she was fine. She was in an air controlled compartment the whole way and kept in air conditioning until she cleared customs. It took about 17 hours from wheels up in Germany until home in Florida. I gave her a break with my daughter holding the leash after picking her up in Miami while I cleaned the crate and gave her a water break. Don't feed the puppy a lot right away as their little tummy can get upset. Congratulations! Nothing more exciting than waiting to see that little face!|

Oh my gosh Frank, I'm soo excited for you!!! It's been a long time coming for you and your family. I can't wait to see pictures of your new pup.
Sorry, I can't offer advise about flying versus driving, it sounds like you got some good advice

Thanks. Did some additional reading and follow-up and now I'm really leaning that way as well.
Even if there are delays/hassles it's still better than the alternative.

Fly the puppy in. It's really not a big deal at all. Twenty hours for a puppy in a car is pretty long and I'd worry about stuff the puppy can pick up along the way and possibly get sick.
My last puppy was flown in. He was off the plane and with me about 15 minutes after the flight landed. Everything went smooth. I'd definitely do it again.
