Finally heard from the travelers...Bad luck continues. Plane broke down they haven't yet made it to their destination. I'm begining to think this trip is just too ill fated, perhaps they should abort. Meanwhile the pups got a bath, as did the horses. Izzy continues to develop her hunting skills and complains loudly when she feels underappreciated and her treasures are not allowed in the house. Best luck to the travelers, and God speed.
