Friends At Indy Airport

Indy airport was a busy place on the day of check out. The line was long and many kennels and passengers got bumped, including Betty's. Instead of going through Minneapolis, Betty and her rabbits were re-routed through Atlanta with two extra hours of wait.

Sandra and Cheryl from Hawaii were trying to get their rabbits back to the Island. Travis was such a sweetie to help getting Sandra and Cheryl to the airport and handling the heavy duty kennels.

Betty was waiting two extra hours for her flight to go to Atlanta, here came Judy L. who was catching a connecting flight back to UK. Both had long waits, they kept each other company and had a great conversation about color genetics.
