Saluti da Napoli

Wow, what an adventure this has been.  We started the long process back in June with packing up the house, shipping the car and having renters take over our home for our move to Naples, Italy.  Tiga, throughout the preparation process was a little nervous but really did quite well despite all the changes.  He stayed with our neighbors for about 3 weeks as we were “Homeless”, but we reunited a few days before our flight to make sure he still loved us and to get all the USDA health data taken care of.

On the morning of July 14th, the shuttle van picked us up, our 12 suitcases and 1 nervous dog in a kennel and off we went  to Seatac to begin our 18 hour trip.  Tiga did really well throughout the process, in fact he did not go potty in his kennel for the entire trip.  Man was he ready to get out as soon as we landed, but I am so glad we did kennel training from the start.

Making the adjustment

So now that we have arrived at our new assignment, Tiga has ventured out a little bit, but the acclimation process for the heat has been difficult for him so far (man is it hot!!!!!).  He is also getting used to the unfortunate military leash law and not liking it much.  We visited a ancient Roman Burial Site on the base we live on, and have made visual contact with too many cats, a few foxes and a Weimaraner that looks just like him.  The kids and Tiga think the three flights of stairs are pretty fun to run up and down, so we are sure this is going to be a great opportunity for all of us.

Breeder’s Comment: We are so happy to learn that the entire family made is safely to Italy. Tiga’s adjustment is a testament to how well you have done at raising your first Weimaraner. We look forward to following your adventures. Thanks for the update. We know you are very busy.
