3 hours each way geez?

Wow, I was thinking 3 hours round trip. 6 hours round trip? I must of read it wrong a while ago.
Either way Pablo is almost in families arms that is huge and he will soon be home! It will be good to have your Dad tell he is ok. Thats a haul both ways.

Yeah that’s a long ride for sure, especially a round trip journey. Your dad is pawesome!

Keeping you in our thoughts for a hoppy reunion. Can’t wait!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Being out that far is probably great anytime you don’t need vet care! At least the come into your town every so often what a gem he is. Our holistic vet is 3 hours round trip and Purrkins rides great, his brother not so much we are taking them both in tomorrow I won’t complain about our drive anymore;) oh-my

Haha yep they come every 5 weeks(so hopefully when Pablo’s stitches are ready to be taken out they’ll be back) on another note

PABLO UPDATE: my dad just FaceTimed me for 5 minutes and I saw my pablo!(haven’t seen the incision yet) my dad said as soon as pablo saw everyone he gave everyone headbuts (he always gives really hard ones haha!). The girls who where vet assistants at the clinic just loved pablo! They where sad to see him go but I’m happy he’s coming home! ❤️ Will update when my boys here (I’d say about 2 1/2 – 3hrs  till they’re back).

If I see this correctly they should be home soon, I am excited for you.  I know you will be right with the world once you get one of those huge head butts!!

Yes everything will definitely be right again when I get one of those big headbutts!(he actually does it really hard and will push you over a little haha!😂🥰). Yep When I talked to my dad they where stopping to get some food so hopefully in 2hrs or less they’ll be back:). I have his dog pen set up with his padded crate and litter in it as well as some face cloths and baby wipes.(and of course his treats) I knew my big boy wouldn’t lose his diet! Haha always hungry my big kitty❤️🐾.
