So, I have not gotten much further on the planning the move front.  All mastiff owners beware, flying with the big beasties is tough.
My beastie is “precious and wee” by comparison, Life only weighs 119lbs (she is a mix).
Currently my best hope seems to be flying commercial to San Juan (known for its really bad treatment of animals btw) with my little dog (65lbs) Teak as excess baggage meanwhile shipping Life as freight  (~$800) hopefully on a similarly timed flight.
Then, after arriving at the San Juan airport (SJU) gather the beasts (I am sure the shaking, stressed, unhappy beasts), remove them from their crates and put them on leashes.  Disassemble crates, and then go to a PRIVATELY CHARTERED PLANE (I only wish I was kidding ~$1000).  The best part is that since this is a super tiny puddle jumper type plane the only entry is over the wing, so I get to convince 2 highly stressed, unhappy beasties to get onto the wing and crawl into the plane where we all sit in a puppy pile on the back bench of the little plane. The disassembled crates barely fitting in. Then we hop over to the island of St. Croix and then we are home. Did I mention there is no room for any luggage for me? So I will be living there with whatever I wear on the flight.  :) At least until the clothes I ship arrive.
So, anyone have any fundraising ideas to fund the “Life goes to STX” fund?
I am trying to get my company to pay for it, but it is not going over well.
So.  Besides the lack of funds the one point I want to make is all of those people who give up their dogs–well they are just asses.  I mean seriously, if I can move heaven and earth, bankrupt myself, work really hard to beat other renters to some of the few pet friendly living areas in the islands, and evenutally need xanax due to the stress of it all to move my 12 year old lab mix named Teak and my 7 year old shepherd/rottie mix named Life with me on a work assignment then these jerks who get themselves a cute puppy and after a few years of ignoring them call us to pick them up can kiss my a$$.  I mean, seriously?  What is wrong with them.
Again, if anyone has any fundraising ideas, let me know. 🙂
