Ok, you probably guessed that the spineless bionic hip puppy didn't make it to California. He didn't even make it to Huffle-land either. This is where he ended up (see map to left). Yeah, he barely made it anywhere before someone called to say that there was a screeching black/white husky floating out to see on balloons and the coast guard got called in and there was this big stink about some plot to invade the U.S. via husky in a balloon and once again, there's Homeland Security knocking on the door. I swear, don't those Homeland Security people have enough to do, don't they need to be making plane travellers take off their shoes and stuff before boarding aircraft?
Here's a blurry picture of the "save" from some "reporter" that was covering the story (and blowing the whole thing out of proportion).
I'm not suppose to be buying cannons or helium or anything that may be used for bad things for a year now. That really limits my ability to get Sam to California. I can't use the human woman's credit card and get him a plane ticket because his bionic hip sets off the metal detector and they get all weirded out when that happens, although he does like to be frisked. I guess I'll have to think really hard about the next mode of transportation.
