Okie doke.  Lexxie is coming home.  Eventually.  I’ve filled out the proper paperwork and paid the adoption fee.  Now, all I have to do is get her here.

When we adopted Suji, two volunteers from the Pacific Pug Rescue kindly took me up on my offer of two round trip tickets and a hotel stay in beautiful Toronto in exchange for transporting her to us.  In Lexxie’s case, however, schedules will not permit it so it looks like I’ll be flying down to pick her up, either this week or the next.  Akemi and I discussed going together, with Suji, but I suspect Suji would prefer to lounge around the apartment rather than suffer a six hour trip (there and back) in a sherpa bag.


Ideally, I’d like my trip to line up with some other purpose – maybe a few pitch meetings for instance – but it’s looking kind of tight.  The best I can probably hope for at this point is to send out my horror script top of next week and meet up with potential interested parties the next.

If not, I may look to getting the trip done in a day.  Out of Toronto on an 8:00 a.m. flight and in to L.A. for 10:30 a.m.  Then, out of L.A. on a 3:40 p.m. flight and back home for 11:15 p.m.  Might be kind of tight – but doable.

  1. Congratulations!!! Lexxie is one lucky dog! I’m sure the girls will get along. Lexxie is a pretty color like Jelly was. Pretty fur. After some time with Akemi and her baby and pampering, she will be even more beautiful like how Suji changed. Will you keep her name or will she get a new one? How exciting!!

  2. I’m so happy for Lexxie and you. She definitely bonded with you on the first visit. Has she met Suji yet? Excited for all of you!

  3. I admire you for adopting elderly, special needs, rescue animals. While I can’t have a pet at the moment I’m glad you promote animal adoption on your blog.

  4. Akemi and Joe, welcome to the newest member of the family! Lexxie will be a happy baby. Suji, remember to share with your sister. and congratulations!

  5. Congratulations! I can’t wait to see how Lexxie blooms with both of you. I hope you have an uneventful trip to and from.

  6. Congrats to everyone! You’re all going to be one big happy family!! She’s a sweetie!

  7. Holy crap, Lexxie’s tragic!face in that last pic is so adorable! XD

    Congratulations. I hope she & Suji acclimate quickly into cuddle-buddies.
