I was worried that Railey wouldn't remember me after so much time apart but he was ecstatic to see us! He jumped around uncontrollably for about 10 full minutes then rolled over on his tummy for a belly rub. This was a great relief as it showed us that he was not traumatized by the flight.
Happy and relieved to have our dog in the same country as us we left for home feeling that the final stretch was in sight. But it couldn't be this easy could it? ...
Saturday evening, we get an email from the on-sight vet saying there are some questions about Railey's blood work. Apparently he was NOT eligible to be exported and required another blood test in Toronto. Emails start flying around to our vet and the transport company in Toronto.... How was this missed? Explain? I'm still waiting for an explanation but there is nothing I can do about it now.
Railey was moved to the isolation section of the quarantine and scheduled for yet more blood work on Monday. We are told Railey must stay in isolation until the blood results are back.. this could take anywhere from 10 - 14 days. SIGH.. so once again we are left waiting in angst to hear the fait of our dog.
