Shipping a dog by plane seemed cruel, but I didn't know any other way. I just happened to find uShip on the internet and spent a long time checking it out. Still apprehensive, I put Junior up for bid. When Dave put in a bid I was curious how he could ship him without being in a kennel. This must be someone who gets along with animals. Junior was in very competent hands, especially with the huge snowstorm going up the east coast which caused bad weather even on their route. They were delayed, but with Dave calling every day and his tracking, we knew where he was all the time. Dave even called to tell me the funny experience of Junior in the snow. The dog had never seen the stuff and didn't know what to make of it. My son was ecstatic that Dave made the extra effort to drive longer the last day to deliver Junior at 2:00 in the morning because my son was just getting home from work. He has been waiting to get this dog back there. We have been tracking Dave as he makes his way back home to Michigan because of the new storm system in the midwest. He's right in it. Please use Dave for shipping your precious family pets and for that matter anything else he can ship for you. You won't be disappointed.
