Freeze the grapes. Still tasty, can't be consumed as fast

Yeah, I'm seriously considering doping him with a puppy Xanax or something. Put him in a happy place, but not a sedation. If not for his own comfort (it's entirely possible he'll be perfectly fine), then for mine.

I've heard a lot of good things about Rescue Remedy. I wish I could try working him up to it, but you can't really "work up to" a 15+ hour plane ride.

Which is the problem with medication, too. I don't think I know of any that would last that long.

You might not work up to it, but I think the effects are supposed to build up, so if you started him on it now it might keep him calmer longer when the time comes.

Everything I've researched for articles says do NOT medicate if you can possibly avoid it. The Rescue Remedy doesn't have that problem though. It's worth a shot, especially since you can try him out on it for awhile without having to worry about side effects.

My husband put my cast iron pan in the dishwasher. I don't... understand. It was finally perfectly seasoned. Woe.

Lyzelle, you may not be able to duplicate the plane setting, but you CAN ensure that Zander can handle being crated for that long before your trip. Being used to the duration should help significantly.

Yep, that's one thing I'm really going to work hard on. If he can just love the kennel, hopefully it'll take everything own a notch.

At least I have a dryer buzzer to work with. If kennel + rescue remedy can get him over the dryer buzzer at least, I know we'll be great with the plane. Lol.

I guess it's harder because when we are driving across the country, I'm in control. Of everything. His handling, his comfort, the car, everything. Flying...I'm not even going to be in control of myself. Terrible experience to look forward to.

Way to make sure you don't ever ask him to do the dishes . . . .
