    DefaultIs this even possible?????

    Do you think that transporting a dog from Mt. Pleasant, MI to Watson Lake in Yukon, Canada is feasible or ideal?

    According to google, it's a 2 day trip. Flights are possible...but a layover in Minneapolis would be like 6 hours...and that would be miserable on a dog....

    Thoughts?

    Don't know if you want to do it, but I'm 10 mins from Minneapolis airport and would be happy to get dog out and take him home to exercise him during his layover if you need!

    PS - However, if it is Gage, he may not make his next flight!

    It's not the destination, it's the journey!

    10 minutes from MSP? We have another up in Lino Lakes. Another in Plymouth, I am in Minnetonka. Do we have a lab club in the twin cities?

    Dani,
    I am in Minneapolis as well and would be more than happy to help you out if the dog had a layover here.
    Let me know!

    Or...what if you set up a ground transport to Minneapolis and he flew from here with no layover? I could even donate my airline approved crate that Neo flew in.

    frickin cold? Only between Jan 15 and Feb 15. And then you lab can keep you warm. I actually prefer it to the string of 90s we had last week. There is nothing like watchng a dog nose diving into snow or trying to tunnel under it. Hershey (6 mo) and our granddaughter ( 1 yr) are both still too young, but we are looking forward to the winter of 08/09. We used to harness up our Golden Retriever to one of those plastic tobogan sleds and she would pull the kids (when they were little) all over the front yard. We never had to show her what to do. She knew and loved it. As did the kids.

    Albertville here!

    There are quite a few people in the Minneapolis area, if you go to the "other" board they have Lab get togethers at numerous 3 River Parks throughout the year.

    Dani, I am also available if there is need for a run or layover.

    Another Minneapolitan. 5 miles from the airport, so can help there if need (if they'd even allow this?).

    Lots o' MN on here!

    Hunter! Are you a he or she? I have to go up to Albertville once a month. Maybe we could have a Lab In in the parking lot while my DW prowls the outlet stores.

    ???? What 'other board'?
