Why is the trip so much longer without a human flying?

True. I thought of that too. And if he does get scared, I'd rather not be associated with that. There wouldn't be much I could do for him being unfamiliar and not very comforting. Plus I wouldn't sleep much and I think I will need to be rested when I get home and tackle puppy plus kiddos.

I don't know why the flight is so long. I guess because they are being shipped like freight? And to overnight or similar is cost prohibitive. That's my best guess.

Now I am liking green. But seriously, they are both adorable. Temperament is in discussion now but they are still less than 6 weeks so not sure how much of that is visible yet.

Really cute and huggable. When do you leave to get them, are you spending any time there, and when will we see you again on here after you leave??

Puppy #3 is now joining the crew to the US. I get back 1/20. I have free wi-fi at my hotel so I should be able to post from there.

Sorry I didn't answer all of your questions, Yankee. I get there late afternoon on the 17th. We go hunting on the 18th. I will go see some sights on the 19th then it's back home on the 20th.

Only 2 pups per crate. There is a sister going to Tennessee and it looks like she will be joining our flight, spending the night at my house and then heading to her home the next day. :)

Ooooh! There is just something about bitty baby littermates that is so much fun to be around!

Puppy sister may not come now. All airlines are requiring a US health certificate and will not take her Hungarian one even though it'll still be within the 10 day limit. If her family wants me to take her to my vet for the cert and have her stay an extra night, she might still come, but it's starting to look like it won't be much of an advantage for her to come with me. For her the process is either: 48 hours in a crate to go direct to Atlanta or 16 hours with me, spend the night w brother and new people, go to new vet, spend another night, then fly 6ish hours to her final destination. I don't know what is worse: a long continuously stressful confinement; or less, but still long confinement, new people, new vet, confinement. It's up to them...

Ugh! I'd personally rather my puppy spend more time with someone who is looking out for her well being, but I can see why someone might want the "direct" flight. If you do take her, would it make sense for her and the other boy to be in the crate in cargo and your pup with you?

I am calling every other day to see if someone cancels but at this point there are already the maximum number of in-cabin dogs on board the plane. I knew I should have reserved the space when I originally booked but I didn't realize they only allow 3 dogs per plane or that so many people travel with dogs internationally like that. I assumed I had time to decide and could book him with me if I decided to bring him on at the time of the flight. Cross your fingers that a spot opens up on board because that would definitely make her coming with me better for her. She will get to ride with the other litter mate (still don't know if it's the brother or another sister) and it will save us $100.

I am thinking it would be super cool to "work" for her kennel as a courier. I could escort puppies here and get a chance to visit there every so often. Go hunting, learn training tips, etc. She's the youngest master trainer in Hungary and a woman to boot. Cool girl.

Not alone the whole time. I don't know the exact details of how it works out, but I guess they fly to Amsterdam and spend the night there and then continue the rest of the flight. I assume they are visited, pottied, and fed at the layover station, but I don't know how it works. But yes, essentially alone for quite a while. I didn't like the sound of it at all, even with a sibling to accompany, so I was so glad to figure out a way to go get him myself. I hope I can help with the sister, but I don't know if it will work out or not. I think I'd choose the roundabout way to avoid the two day lonely trip, but I'm not them...

I thought airline personnel were not allowed to remove the dogs from their crates. Am I wrong about this?
I've never flown with a dog and most likely never will, but given the choice, I'd want the dog to fly in the cabin with me over flying in cargo every time. Amanda, I hope you are able to do that.

I guess the stop over is at at doggie hotel, but I don't think the breeder even knows exactly what happens there. Just crate cleaning or do they give walks? I'm not sure she has ever used this option as it appears she does whatever she can to avoid it. They only take puppies 10 weeks and over anyway. We are going to keep trying to get my puppy on the plane and then the two other puppies will share the kennel in cargo. United is going to accept the Hungarian vet certificate. But it's a little more expensive. We'll see what the family decides. If it were me, I would choose me. At least they will know that their puppy is loved and cared for and not possibly hanging out alone in a kennel at the dog hotel.

Yay! What is the Hungarian word for green? That might make a fun name, at least in the US. Of course, how many American dogs are name Blue, Blackie, or Brownie - I guess a color name isn't so unusual. :)

Apart from the extra accent marks, that's way easier to spell than Pixel's registered name - Gartnervejens - Gardner's Way. (His breeder owns a garden center.)
