We had almost given up hope on keeping our beloved black lab. With our house for sale and my husband leaving for an extended deployment in Iraq, we were faced with the fact that we would have to find alternate living arrangements for our black lab until he returned and we were at our next duty station. His mother offered to keep her for the next few months; however, she lived across county (Florida to California and finding suitable, inexpensive flights that worked with both of our schedules was not looking promising. We were already weary about Raven flying since she is a spoiled rotten house dog that scares easily. After our posting was a few days on Uship, we found the idea shipping company, Dawn to Dusk. Although they do not normally ship ship dogs, they did use a huge favor and picked her up on the way. The price was incredibly reasonable, and I am sure Raven preferred this method over flying. In fact, once Raven reached her destination she did not want to leave the shipper. I will definitely use uShip in the future.
