Chang Jie Mao landed safely in Beijing. Wang Yan, one of our colleagues at our partner transport company sent us some photos of him having an early morning walk and taking in his new, temporary, surroundings. He will be well looked after by Wang Yan and her colleagues. She will take him to the vet for his health check and certificate soon.
Du drove Noah to Chengdu where she booked a hotel room. They will stay there until it is time for Noah's flight to Beijing where he will stay for a few days while paperwork is processed.
Before Du and Chang Jie Mao had supper, they walked to a supermarket to buy a towel for Chang Jie Mao to lie on.
Once back at the hotel, Du and Chang Jie Mao enjoyed supper then rested before Chang Jie Mao's flight to Beijing.
Chang Jie Mao ate his breakfast this morning, and he wasn't as clingy. He is ready to go to his new home. When breakfasts had been eaten and the car was packed, Du and Chang Jie Mao drove to Chengdu to the airport./ Du checked them both in to a nearby hotel where they will wait for the flight to be arranged to take Chang Jie Mao to Beijing.
Chang Jie Mao didn't eat his supper and was quite clingy with Du and despite her preparing his favourite meal he had no appetite. He just wanted to be with her, like he knew this would be the last night he would spend with her, excited for a forever home at last.
Yesterday Du took Noah to the beauty salon. The salon owners, Xiao Deng and his wife often help out at the shelter when dog baths and hair cuts are needed. They offered to give Noah a pampering session. He was bathed, blow dried, had his fur trimmed, ears cleaned and nails clipped. Noah really enjoyed all the attention on his day out.
The passenger who had agreed to take Noah to Paris decided to take more luggage so Noah could not be added to the passenger's ticket. Another passenger was found and then another and each time something happened which meant that Noah could not make the journey to Miriam. Finding passengers to take dogs as excess luggage on their tickets can be hard and sometimes a passenger is never found. Through all this time, Noah has been unaware but Miriam has been upset. Du and our volunteer Yao Yao have been spending time with Noah, waiting for good news...
