I asked this very nice and very patient man if I could put some towels into his crate, yes, I could do that. Then I said he needs a blanket, yes, I could do that too. He was about to drive off when said that Jochen had to have his own bedding in his crate, raced off and got that.
The man smiled at me and took the bedding whilst Peter took me by the shoulders and very firmly walked me up the driveway. I was definitely NOT cool. It took me a while to refocus on finalising my packing.
I will not see Jochen again until we are reunited in Zurich.
