Stuck in the airport...

So I would love to report that picking up the puppy was a breeze and that the two of us are safe and sound at home, but I can't. The two of us are stuck in the airport for goodness knows how long. At the very least another hour though we have already been here for four and a half hours now.

Luckily I have unlimited internet service on my phone or else I would be bored out of my mind. The puppy (no name revealed until I can post some pictures - sorry!) is currently asleep and has been for the last hour or two. Hopefully he will stay that way. He is a bundle of love, though, with lots of personality and energy! I know he will be a handful.

I do have a question for all you knowledgeable hav owners... what do I do about food? I haven't fed him today, though I did give him a tiny bit of water about an hour ago and I'm guessing that he won't pee as long as I don't give him lots of water. What would be the max amount of time I can leave him without eating? I think he will be fine until dinner time, but since he is my first puppy, I'm not 100% certain.

Oh what a terrible way to start!!

Hopefully he won't be all Hav'ready for party once you are on the plane!!

I can imagine he'll be hungry when waking up......

How long is your flight?
yes don't hold back on the water.....

He might not be hungry, because of all the changes he is going thru today. I am sure if he is hungry when you get home, you can give him something to eat. If you don't he might be a cranky puppy all night.

It is no wonder you are delayed. We are having some monstrous storms here...much thunder and amazing lightening. Get home safe!

Carolina I am so sorry you are stuck in the airport But at least you have your handsome traveling companion with you!!!!!!

I am not sure on the whole feeding issue, as I never traveled with a puppy, but I think as long as he is getting water he should be fine until tonight.

Wishing you a speedy trip home, can't wait for the photos!

I don't think I would feed him till you got home.If he really acts hungry,then a little bit but not much.A little in can mean a disaster up in the airI would let him have water,but take him out for a pee break before you take off.Sorry to hear about the delays.We are waiting for cute pix and a name after you arrive safely home!

My Quince flew too---no food and he was fine!
