Hi Everybody..My precious Ricky has arrived with the greatest of care by American Airlines..5 stars for their handling of this pup and all the others that came that day. It was the with help and the extra push from Foster MOM and DAD from HRI that made it all happen fairly seamlessly and quickly. We were up against the weather at both ends and if it is over 85 degrees from start to finish they will not ship. The flight arrangements were changed three times, but there is no penalty like in human tickets!!! Ricky landed on Friday at 2 PM and walked out of his kennel with his tail wagging and fell into my arms with loads of hugs and kisses from me which he gladly accepted not even knowing me!! His ride home was great..he loves to ride in the car. His new bros Happy and Lucky are just getting to know him, but there has been no issues..food is a great way of gathering them to sit next to each other in front of me. They are all very polite and seem to understand how to accept food in turn..I haven't grown that third arm yet!! Ricky LOVES food and he will need to shed few pounds to even up with his new bros. He has slept through the night and wakes up sooo happy and ready to eat!!! My only frustration is uploading pics on to the forum to share..and Leeann is going to try and help me do this shortly. I was able to get a picture of the three of them this morning in the bedroom waiting to get the cookie I was dangling in front of them.
I can understand the frustration of adoption and I was lucky enough to have been chosen for Ricky..this is a perfect home for him which resembled the foster home to a tee which is probably why we were a good possibility for Ricky. My husband bob is retired and I only work 2 days a week to get a break and talk to the real world. The foster parents do get a good idea of what would be the best home for their pups and do have some voice in choosing the perfect home. Ricky is a real mush and loves to sit on people's laps or snuggle real close...wants people around him all the time. He will learn to understand how to live with Happy and Lucky..he loves to play and so do they. Ricky is about 20 months old now so he is a little younger then mine..all are still very puppy like in their behavior. My kids are not quite sure of him, but it is definitely improving every day. We can all lay on the floor together and get rubbed without one of them leaving.
So with Leeann's help and my perserverance, I hope to get some pictures of Ricky and his brothers Happy and Lucky uploaded real soon..they are on the computer it is just a mystery to me why it will not upload.

Congrats on Ricky! It's so wonderful that he is now in such a great home as yours!

And I'm also having problems uploading pictures. My Mac won't upload AT ALL, though my PC will. Very strange. I PM'd Melissa about it, though she still hasn't gotten back to me since I'm sure she's busy. Hopefully it will get fixed soon!

Picture Help...Maybe!

I just wanted to say congrats! Ricky looked like such a sweet beauty from his picture on the Hav Rescue site. I can't wait to see updated photos of him with you all.

Just a thought for all of you having problems uploading pics to this site. I never use this site to host my pics on threads, I upload my pics to Flickr and when the time comes to post a pic here I open another window on my browser, leave the Hav forum open too, go to Flickr with this new window, choose my photos, go to all sizes and choose a reasonable size to post, grab it's url and do a "control c" to copy it on to my "clipboard." I then go back to the window with the Hav forum message I'm posting. I click on the "photo" icon, the one with the sun and mountains on it, and I paste my photo link with a "control v." Now I've got a picture loaded.

I know Melissa posted about having space issues and having to pay more for this site, so I never attach my photos using the attach file feature, because of this space issue.

Hope this helps some, I know there are also other ways to do this.
