I GUESS I CAN STOP WORRYING...
SOUNDS LIKE THEY MADE IT BACK WITH THEIR PERFECT DOG...
From Bella's Mom:
It's so sad when you have to come home from vacation. At least from this vacation. 3 days in Disney is never enough.
We had a spectacular trip! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to all who helped out.
This morning Ed took the girls to the pool for some swimming while I packed the suitcases.
We made everything fit! After swimming we had a late breakfast in the lobby. Then the girls
walked around the gift store to look for any last minute treats. They were very into pin trading this week. After shopping
we had about 30 minutes before our magical express bus came to pick us up.
Our friend/fairy godmother came to say her last goodbyes. She also had to pick up the wheelchair that she got from Disney
for us to use for our whole trip. She did so much organizing for this trip with special meet and greets,
Jedi training, meals, VIP shows, Gabi doing her photography lesson and the list goes on.
We can't thank her enough. Wonderful generous woman.
So when you travel Burton style there always seems to be added excitement. So we get on our bus
to head to the airport, make a couple stops at other hotels, we had over 3 hours before our plane left
so plenty of time until.....the bus gets a blow out 2 miles from the airport! Ugh. So 30 minutes later a
new bus pulls up and everyone has to transfer to the new bus on the side of the highway. A little
stressful. We made sure to have an extra hand on George since we were on the highway. Then the
luggage all got transferred. We arrive at the airport at 2:30. We have 1 hour before take off and boarding
starts at 3:10. Bella had wheelchair help so we did thankfully get through security pretty fast. Get to the gate
at 3 everyone runs to the bathroom come back to find out that the incoming plane had an emergency and
had to be diverted so wasn't even going to land until 6! So all that rushing around and we
didn't need to. So I ask the people at the gate where the pet relief area is and they tell me outside.
On the other side of security. They said I had plenty of time if I want to take George to the bathroom.
So figured I should make him go one more time since we were going to be leaving Orlando at 6 instead
of landing in Boston at 6. So Bella, George and I go all the way back to baggage claim area and have George pee.
As he is peeing Gabi calls to tell me they are getting ready to board our plane at 4:30 instead of 6:30
. But guess who now has to go back through security? Yup us. Thankfully Ed and Gabi were
there to tell them we were coming. Of course there was a long line in the wheelchair line to go through
security so we left the chair there Bella and George walked through the detector and I ended up putting
Bella on my shoulders as she held George and we walked very fast and made it to the gate as
they just finished boarding wheelchair. So we got on, and got settled as everyone else was boarding.
That made for a stressful afternoon but we made it home safe and that is what matters. So now off to bed
since we have to be back in the school routine in the morning.
Goodnight. Love Bella and George 👣🐾👣🐾💕
BLESS THAT FAIRY GODMOTHER !!!
SHE TOOK GREAT CARE TO BE SURE THE BURTON FAMMILY HAD AN EXCEPTIONAL TIME.
BACK TO COMMENTING ON THE PERFECT DOG... GEORGE....I HAVE TO GIVE ALOT OF CREDIT FORTHE BURTON FAMILY..
RIGHT FROM THE "GO " THEY HANDLED HIM BEAUTIFULLY-- NOT MICROMANAGING. WITH TOO MANY COMMANDS....
BUT FIGURING THINGS OUT WHILE GEORGE DID TOO.
WHEN THEY WALKED OUT ON THAT DOG SHOW FLOOR, GEORGE WAS CONFIDENCE ITSELF-
-" NO PROBLEM.. WHERE ARE WE GOING?"
NOT TO MENTION BELLA TOO !! A NICE WAVE TO THE CROWD AT THE END-- PERFECT !
WE ARE AT 67,300,000 AND COUNTING ON THAT FIRST ABC STORY...
Dear Carlene...Have to tell you my quick story. Because of you I now know where the stench comes from!! I have a very old dresser in my bedroom that belonged to my great aunt & uncle. When my aunt passed I inherited the dresser set. Every now and then the dresser my uncle always used throws off the most horrid odor. No explanation just BAMMMM awful smell. Then out of nowhere the smell is gone. It is the strangest thing. THANKS for solving the unexplained odor presense. I too have a GOLDIE.
Thanks for all you do.
