I know. Crazy, right? If the puppies come alone, it takes them 2 full days. They have to spend the night in Amsterdam. I don't know how that works exactly because I would be super uncomfortable with unknown airline staff opening the crate anyway, but basically it takes them 48 hours. With me, they will still travel cargo, but the total travel in the plane is 16 hours. Slightly longer in their crate, but much less than the alternative. And good grief... my math was off. 32 hours cut by coming with me. I could take my own puppy in the cabin with me, but I am not sure I want to do that to the poor other puppy who would then fly alone. I don't know. I may change my mind when I get there.
